4. You Reach for Sugary Snacks
Recent studies have shown that an acute dose of sugar—and not just a sugary diet—reduces testosterone levels. Testosterone is often misunderstood as the “male” hormone, but women produce it, too—and having enough in your bloodstream is a key component to a healthy libido.
Cut back on added sugars by scanning ingredient labels and ditching any packaged foods that have more than 6g of sugar per serving. If you need a fix, go for dark chocolate (at least 70%), which is lower in sugar, or berries. Chocolate-dipped strawberries, anyone?
