Um.....libido.....through the roof?
This post may be too much tmi.... but I'm not sure if what is going on with me is reflective of primal eating, or age, or what..... I am (gulp) 40 and each month my libido is ramping up *way* more that it has in a long time. Quite frankly, I feel like a hormone-suffused teen again. I like it! If it is the diet, then I'm NEVER swaying, lol. But I have heard that this can be an, ahem, good age for women. So what gives? Anyone else experiencing this?
Ohhhhh yes. It's been like this for me more often than not since about 35 but in there was another increase at 39 and another huge jump at 40. Like insane. I had *nothing* like this as a teen.

I find myself checking out guys on the street and in stores like men typically check out women. I have *never* had this experience before. It's bizarre. And fun. lol Gives me empathy for what guys go through every day.

Well, my 61 year old father had a similar experience when he went paleo. Yes, we are an open family.
Me, too. I LOVE it!!!
This happens for guys too, I notice. Even older guys. Damn nice.
Its so hard being a guy, having to spend all day checking out attractive girls...

I've read that an increase in omega 3s and decrease in omega 6s is a major part of this. There is a book called _The Orgasmic Diet_ that is actually based on lowering carbs/starches/sugars and upping fish oil.
I've seen many threads like this on these forums--I believe its pretty common.
Oh that'll be nice!! I was like that for a little while between regaining my period after DC#2 and conceiving DC#3. The Orgasmic Diet? Sounds like a fun book.
