Want to Have More Sex? Start Eating Less, Study Says

If you cut back on your calorie intake by 25 percent, you will have more sex, a study published in JAMA Internal Medicine says

Are you looking to increase your sexual health? Science says that you should start eating less.

According to a new study published in the JAMA Internal Medicine Journal, cutting your daily calories by 25 percent will result in better sleep, improved quality of life, and better sexual function.

The study analyzed the eating habits and life quality of 218 men and women between the ages of 20 and 50 that were considered to have BMIs within the normal to slightly overweight range. Over the course of two years, some of the participants were randomly selected to cut back calories by 25 percent. Not only did the group who cut back calories experience a 12 percent loss in body fat, as expected, but they also reported an improved sex life.

The group that could eat what they wanted reported little to no change in sexual temperament, lifestyle, or life function.
