In-the-Mood Foods


Want to maximize your performance in the bedroom? Here are some of the best foods to help boost your libido and sexual performance, according to the healthy eating guide Eat This, Not That!>For a hormone rush: Eat an ounce of dark chocolate, which is packed with anandamide and phenylethylamine, compounds that trigger the body to release feel-good endorphins. Chocolate also contains methylxanthines, which make the skin more sensitive to touch. >For energy and stamina:Eat lean sirloin steak, which naturally boosts your brain's production of dopamine and norepinephrine. It's also a good source of zinc, which blocks prolactin, a hormone that can interfere with arousal. >For power: Have half a cup of vanilla ice cream, which contains calcium and phosphorous to build your muscles' energy reserves, increase your libido, and help the muscles that control sexual response perform at peak efficiency. >For performance:Eat half a cup of blueberries, which can help remove excess cholesterol from your blood and improve blood flow by relaxing your blood vessels (poor blood flow can result in erectile problems). For maximum performance, eat a serving of blueberries three to four times each week.
