You may plan to start your intimate evening with a three course decadent meal, or by sharing a five-layer dessert in order to woo your partner with decadence, but in truth you may be putting a damper on the evening. It takes a lot of energy for your body to digest food and your stomach is only the size of your fist, so eating more than you really need will only make you feel overly full and bloated, and definitely not very sexy. Before your romantic night begins, think about which foods offer the most health benefits and in turn, you will feel your best.
The more avocado you consume, the more blood flow your body experiences ― which is useful when it comes to sexual performance and in turn will also help lower the risk of heart disease.
