Skip the sand­wich

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - LOVE LUST -

‘Carbs el­e­vate blood sugar, which leads to the sup­pres­sion of the hor­mone DHEA – and when DHEA falls, sex drive de­clines with it,’ says func­tional nu­tri­tion­ist Alisa Vitti, cre­ator of MyFlo, a pe­riod- and hor­mon­e­track­ing app. Too many carbs can also lead to li­bido-killing bloat (oh, bur­rito belly, you cruel mis­tress!), so choose a high-pro­tein, low-carb lunch such as chicken salad in a let­tuce wrap.
