Imagine you went out with a hot date, and after a romantic dinner, you’re in the mood for some sexercise — happens to all of us, doesn’t it? But just then, your stomach shows its disapproval: you feel heavily bloated, and your libido drops too! You might wonder what happened all of a sudden, but it’s the food you ate at dinner playing spoilsport.

We all know the kinds of food that can turn the heat up in the bedroom, but how about those that kill the vibe?

That’s why we are here to tell you about all the foods you must avoid, if you’re looking for some sexy time with your date:

1. Cheese
If you’re lactose intolerant, then you certainly must steer clear of cheese! Mozzarella, ricotta or even cottage cheese are high in lactose, and can cause severe discomfort in your stomach. And we’re sure you really don’t want to feel disappointed after that date? So, avoid those cheesy pizzas, pastas or even burgers, if you plan on getting laid tonight!

2. Spicy food
If you want to spice up your sex life, then it’s time to avoid hot foods before sex. Spicy food can cause acid reflux, indigestion or even trigger you to go to the loo a thousand times! Not something you’d like, isn’t it?

3. Beans
You might love gorging on burrito bowls, hummus or anything that’s made out of beans, but it’s best to avoid these foods before lovemaking. Beans contain sugar molecules that are quite hard for the body to digest, and by the time it reaches your colon, the bacteria turns these molecules into a lot of gas! And you don’t want to be farting away all night for sure!

4. Onions and garlic
We all know how onion and garlic can give us bread breath, but that’s not all: they can also alter the odour of your secretions. Eww! Yes, it’s true. Pungent foods are a big no-no before sex, so just stay away from caramelised onions or your favourite garlic chutney before the big night!

5. Desserts
If sweet treats make you go weak in the knees, then there’s some bad news for you. All those sugar-laden cakes and cookies can destroy your sex experience. That’s because desserts are loaded with trans fat and sugar, and can prevent you from reaching the big O.

That’s not all: the sweetness also increases the insulin levels in your body, and that’s not what you want in the bedroom!

6. Starchy carbs
We all know junk food means an overload of carbs, but consuming too much can reduce your blood sugar levels, and that’ll make you super sluggish! If you want to spice up your sex life, ditch any carb-heavy meal like fries, rice or pastas.

7. Soy products
Soy might be healthy, but consuming excessive amounts can cause hormonal imbalance, and that means low libido! So, if you’re a vegan, avoid soy before a hot and heavy session in the bedroom.

8. Carbonated drinks
It’s a no-brainer that carbonated drinks are unhealthy, but guess what, they are the worst beverage to have before sex! That’s because it can make you bloated and gassy. You don’t want your lovemaking session to be interrupted by farts and burps! Gross, isn’t it?

9. Alcohol
You might think getting drunk can spice things up, but turns out it can be a buzz killer. Alcohol increases melatonin, the hormone that induces sleep and also alters your libido. This in turn can make you sluggish and not so ready for sex!

10. Salty food
Last but not the least, avoid salty food before sex! That’s because foods loaded with salt make you feel bloated in no time. Apart from that, it can also prevent you from reaching an orgasm by reducing your blood flow. You clearly don’t want that, right?

So ladies, the next time you’re out on a romantic date, avoid these foods and enjoy steamy sex like never before!
