4 Foods You're Eating That Kill Your Sex Drive

March 31, 2015 3 min read

What is the point of being fit and healthy if you can't enjoy your favourite intimate exercises? Want to have more sex? Who doesn’t? The problem is that in our stressful lives, it’s hard to find the energy to have as much sex as you’d like. Your diet isn’t doing you any favors either. In my research for the Bulletproof Diet, I discovered that there are four things you’re probably eating that are killing your energy and your sex drive. 1. Performance-Sapping Sugar Most people are familiar with the term “sugar crash,” but many don’t know where this term comes from. After you eat sugar, it’s not only your focus and energy that crashes, but also your actual blood sugar levels, too. When you eat sugar, blood sugars naturally rise, causing the pancreas to secrete insulin. But the pancreas isn’t great at estimating how much insulin to release and usually overdoes it, secreting large amounts of insulin that cause your blood sugar to drop dramatically. This is the famous crash that causes brain fog, sluggishness, and food cravings. Eliminating sugar is one of the very best things you can do for your health, weight, and overall performance. 2. Vegetable Oils That Don’t Come From Vegetables The Bulletproof Diet is all about fat, but the type of fat you consume is key. The most stable fats are saturated, while the most unstable, easily oxidized, and therefore inflammatory fats are polyunsaturated fats. Eating excess polyunsaturated fats will not improve your health, longevity, or performance and is likely to contribute to cancer and metabolic problems. The most common polyunsaturated oils that you should avoid include canola, corn, cottonseed, peanut, safflower, soybean, and sunflower oils. The main problems with these oils are that most are genetically modified and many contain toxic solvents used in their production. It’s not easy to squeeze oil out of something like corn, so in order to maximize production, these solvents are needed. These kryptonite oils also provide unhealthy amounts of omega 6 polyunsaturated fats. Oxidized omega 6 fats do damage to your DNA, inflame your heart tissues, and raise your risk of several types of cancer, including breast cancer. But perhaps worst of all, your brain pays the price — oxidized omega 6 fats don’t support optimal brain metabolism. P-GZ6c7W08qIPS2vQrLyCitOMfQXzAHEk2ngWA63oUY 3. Gut-Destroying Grains Gluten-containing grains are addictive and break down in the gut into opioid compounds called gluteomorphins that trigger the same receptors in your brain as other opiate drugs like heroin. If allow your brain to get “addicted” to the opiates formed by grain digestion, you’re going to experience that as insatiable hunger and cravings that last for days after you last ate grains. There is plenty of research to show that eating gluten also has negative health consequences. It causes inflammation and gastrointestinal distress and contributes to autoimmune diseases and a host of other issues. The trick is to give it up completely and go gluten-free. This will dramatically increase your ability to live up to your full potential and you’ll undoubtedly feel an immediate difference in your body and your brain. 4. Dubious Dairy The final category of foods to avoid on the Bulletproof Diet is conventional dairy. One of the main problems with dairy is the harmful process of pasteurization. While this process does reduce the small risk of milk contamination, it kills off the beneficial probiotics in the milk, denatures milk proteins, and basically transforms milk from a source of nutrition into a source of many health problems. Pasteurization also turns milk’s lactose sugars into beta-lactose sugars that the body absorbs faster, causing blood sugar spikes. You should avoid milk and most things made from milk — cheese, yogurt, cream, buttermilk, and ice cream — but not butter. Butter is significantly healthier than the milk it is made from because the harmful milk proteins (including casein and BCM-7) are largely absent from butter. What little milk protein remains in cultured butter has been enzymatically modified during the butter fermentation process and isn’t a problem for most people. When you cut out problem foods and refocus on good fats, protein, and vegetables, your energy levels will soar. The Bulletproof Diet can teach you exactly how to do that. Then you’ll have the sex drive you want and deserve. By Dave Asprey H/T: Yahoo

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.
