There’s nothing that can kill social life or a relationship more than no get up and go. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to pinpoint the cause of lack of your low energy. But one issue could be your diet.

In fact, there are a number of foods and beverages that can negatively affect our energy levels, and simply make activity and even intimacy less appealing to one or both partners. So which foods should you avoid, or limit consumption of, in order to keep your energy level?

By lowering our inhibitions, it can allow us to let loose, thereby saying and doing the things we might not otherwise do. For some that can be troublesome, but for others it can give a relationship the excitement it needs.
