    (Im a guy btw)

    Ive always had a below average sex drive, i guess, but it was never worryingly low before I came to uni. but in the last few months its really dropped off a cliff...There are weeks when it comes back slightly but most of the time it barely seems to be there at all. The timing (it happened after i came to uni) makes me think that its my diet, as thats the biggest lifestyle change Ive undergone recently. my parents used to give me a varied diet and vegetables with every meal but since i came here i basically eat no fruit and veg at all and a very, very non-varied diet (mostly pasta, beans on toast etc). Also, I went through a phase over the summer of barely eating anything for a while to try and lose weight (terrible idea, i know) and my sex drive also plummeted, which makes me think the same thing has happened now.

    Could it be my diet? has anyone else had a similar experience? and what foods could i eat to help boost my sex drive?

    any help would be appreciated cos this is really starting to worry me. :-/
    Thanks

    I've never heard of sex drive being conclusively linked to diet, but if your diet is in general giving you lower energy levels and less vitality then that could be a factor. IMO it's more likely that the switch to uni is stressing you out, which can be a big factor with sex drives. Stress is not good for your get up and go.

    Also you should totally eat more fruit and veg just because it's good for you. Onwards to the greengrocer's!
