A Healthy Love Life

Yes, you read it correctly. The latest Really, Truly Fit podcast is peeling back the covers and talking about sex as we gear up for Valentine’s Day. While we talk a lot about a healthy lifestyle, it’s important to include a healthy love life as well.

As you listen, you’ll hear the mind-blowing statistics on the calories burned during sex and ways to optimize your sexercise. What?! Yeah, I’m telling you – you won’t want to miss this show.


You’ll also hear about various foods that work to improve your sex drive. Some of those include:

  • Spinach – loaded with folate, which gives a much needed energetic boost for improved circulation.
  • Watermelon – has the potential to increase the libido due to an amino acid cal Citrulline, which helps to dilate the blood vessels.
  • Cayenne Pepper – contains the active ingredient capsaicin, which is proven to increase heart rate, metabolism, blood flow and sweat.
  • Chocolate – contains Phenylethylamine. A chemical compound that can produce feelings of euphoria and happiness by releasing dopamine.
  • Garlic – has the compound Allicin which has the ability to improve blood flow to organs. Extra blood flow = more sensativity
  • Vanilla – According to the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, vanilla is one of the most arousing scents to men.
  • Oysters – I’m sure we’ve all heard this one. This “aphrodisiac” has more zinc than any other food – which is essential for the release of sex hormones such as testosterone.
  • Pomegranates – contains major doses of antioxidants that prevent free radicals from restricting circulation to your lower regions, if you know what I mean.

So now that we have you blushing – what’s on the menu for your Valentine’s Day dinner?
