      Leptin reset is rumored to help. I think it's a crock, but others swear by it. Check out the Leptin Reset threads.

          I checked out the Leptin thread and Simple Guidelines to Dr Kruse' Leptin Reset Prescription to understand what the leptin hype is about. I would try it, but that much food in the morning would leave me in a groaning heap on the floor.

          I heard that nuts, avocado and bananas (no pun intended) help, but I was hoping for some ancestral Paleo wisdom. I can't keep up with my mate.

            I pretty much got married based on tequila. That's primal enough, isn't it?

              Alcohol

              Haha to the alcohol. But really, some good foods are:

              -raw liver
              -raw eggs
              -avocados
              -olives
              -fatty fish
              -raw milk/kefir

              Just basically think good fats, as these are what makes your hormones. Liver is probably #1 though with huge amounts of B12.

                Check out the Iodine Anyone thread too. There are some indications that iodine deficiency can cause decreased interest. And don't know what your activity level is like, but some swear that excercise ups the libido.

                  Do I have to eat the liver raw? I have an aversion to liver based on being force-fed it by my grandfather when I was little. Love olives though.

                  Also, I'd try the alcohol method, but I don't drink as of yet. Family history and all that.

                      Haha, I will prepare myself a raw liver paté, nestled inside a sweet potato, with bits of olive floating in a glass or raw milk with raw eggs inside.

                      Then go at it.

                      My activity level is pretty high. I'll check out the iodine thread. I'm hoping I'm deficient in something, and it isn't an attraction issue.

                        If you're actually looking for help, why would you post on a forum? Go seek medical help from a doctor or psychologist. Don't seek help here, these people have no idea what they're talking about.

                          I believe what we eat affects everything, including our performance in bed.

                            I am reading this book called The Orgasmic Diet (Amazon.com: The Orgasmic Diet: A Revolutionary Plan to Lift Your Libido and Bring You to Orgasm (9780307352651): Marrena Lindberg: Books) and the gist of it is that high (specific to your body weight) doses of high-quality fish oil (O3), coupled with a diet that's pretty close to Primal and vaginal muscle strength exercises will greatly improve your sex life, with or without a partner. As for me, I've still got a serious coffee addiction, and she explains how caffeine quickly undoes the benefits of the other parts of the "diet", so that's probably why my libido is still pretty much zero.

                              The world needs more liver eaters but in my experience libido is 99% mental, either through attraction or self image (or both).
