Overweight diabetic men can boost sexual desire and erectile function by losing just 5% of their body weight.
Overweight men with diabetes may be able to improve bedroom performance by losing a modest amount of weight by restricting calorie intake and improving the nutritional quality of their diet. A new study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine found that dropping just 5 percent of one’s body weight (that’s 10 pounds for someone who clocks in at 200) led to fewer urinary voiding problems and better sexual performance within eight weeks. Men who lost weight saw their erectile function, sexual desire and voiding symptoms continue to improve over the course of a year.

This isn’t the first study to suggest weight problems can lead to trouble between the sheets. Obesity and physical inactivity both increase the risk of erectile dysfunction. Getting moderate amounts of exercise and proper nutrition may promote weight loss and boost cardiovascular health, both of which may help alleviate symptoms in the sack.
