(BLACKSCOOP) Next time you’re out on a hot date, AVOID these foods.
They can leave you bloated, gassy, sleepy, and zap yo sex drive.
While a steak dinner might sound like a romantic date, eating a fatty piece of red meat causes your body to go into overdrive when it’s time to digest it, which can end up making you feel super sleepy—aka not ready for action.
Oddly enough, this candy was found to bring on hormonal changes and can lower sex drive in both women and men, according to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. While you’d have to eat a lot of it to feel the effects, you should def hold off on eating on licorice before jumping into the sack!
While they have 0 calories, artificial sweeteners can contain hard-to-digest ingredients like sorbitol, which can cause major bloating.
Also on the sure-to-bloat-you-big-time list are veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts, which all contains a sugar hard to digest, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine’s health library. To digest them, your body needs to use methane-releasing bacteria—and if there’s one thing you don’t want to be releasing right before or during sex, it’s methane.
75% of people in the world are lactose intolerant. Since most of us have trouble breaking down dairy products like cheese and milk—because they contain the enzyme lactase—you might want to skip having pizza on a big date if you’d like to avoid gas and bloating later.
It’s not technically a food, but it’s important to know that while chewing gum might give you fresh breath, all of the air you’re swallowing while smacking away may also give you gas, according to the Mayo Clinic. And that could kill the mood no matter how minty your breath is.
Beans are a pre-sex no-no not just for the gas factor—they also make you super-bloated. Beans contain a sugar that isn’t digestible, according to a study published in Nutrition Journal, so once they hit your stomach you’re sure to puff up.
