The good sex diet: healthy foods to liven up your love life!
Sex life lost its sparkle? These aphrodisiac foods will not only put bonking back on the menu, they’ll also help you lose weight, which, in turn, ensures you feel great about your body – and more sexy! Swap white bread, rice and pasta for wholegrain varieties. Fill up on brown bread, oats and brown rice, which all contain B vitamins that directly boost sexual performance.
Sexy breakfast: Porridge with chopped banana, semi-skimmed milk, a handful of berries and a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds. Want something a little fancier? Try scrambled egg and smoked salmon on granary toast – in bed, of course.
