If your partner has problems with erectile dysfunction, it can wreak havoc on your relationship. Fortunately, eating healthier can help resolve the problem. You can encourage your partner to eat healthy foods by purchasing and preparing them. The whole family can enjoy the health benefits of eating these types of foods.
Erectile dysfunction is a complex issue that can have a variety of causes. Some are physical, such as restricted blood flow to the veins, obesity and diseases like diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Others are mental or emotional, such as depression, relationship problems or stress. Eating the right foods may be able to help with some of the causes of erectile dysfunction, though it cannot solve all problems.
The key to using foods to cure erectile dysfunction is to fix the problems that are causing it. For example, you may want to choose foods that are low in calorie if your partner’s problem stems from obesity. However, you may also want to focus on foods that improve blood circulation or that can affect mood. The key to choosing the right foods is to determine the real cause of the disease.
If your partner needs to lose weight, it’s best to focus the diet around fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. Salmon, oatmeal, blueberries and quinoa are all foods that can fight depression, which can put him in the mood for love. Oranges and melons can increase blood circulation, which may give him the boost that he needs to maintain an erection.
If your partner is currently eating an unhealthy diet, he may resent the switch to healthier foods. Look for ways that you keep things flavorful while reducing calories and incorporating the foods that will help with erectile dysfunction. For example, switching to whole grains can be a difficult first step for someone who is used to white flour-based foods. Try a mix before making a big switch–you can make rice that is half white and half brown. You should also avoid frying meat. Opt instead for grilling or baking. Salads can get boring if you serve the same thing day in and day out. Get a bit more creative with the salads by changing the types of vegetables that you use and the flavor of the dressing.
Water is an essential ingredient for staying healthy. It can help him to feel full longer. It can also prevent his body from holding onto its water weight, which can improve his weight loss chances. Encourage him to ditch the soda in favor of water. If he isn’t used to the taste of plain water, low-calorie flavor packets can make the water more palatable.
