Lighting Up My Lagging Libido With Keto

The past few years I have gone through a few emotional and confidence rollercoasters, and this year has also come with its own challenges.

I have never been a big girl, more along to the lines of curvy/chubby.  Confidence tends to be a struggle of mine as I see myself and am worried that I am bigger than I actually am.

Also, I went without sex for almost a year, which felt refreshing in the beginning.  But towards the end, it significantly lowered my sex drive.

My Lagging Libido

I’m not quite sure when sex started feeling scary again, like it was my first time. Maybe it’s because of a new partner or because it’s been so long.

I’ve been trying to figure out if it has to do with my confidence or my diet affecting my libido.  Like, I’ve never eaten terribly but working shift work has me consuming more carbs.

Always had trouble sleeping, taking hours to actually fall asleep and waking up constantly.  I don’t want to rely on sleeping pills and fall back into taking prescription medication.  My depression and anxiety make things even harder, but I don’t want to just numb myself with medication.

There has to be a better solution

So, after some research I have come up with a plan of attack to knock out all my worries with one solution.  I plan to lose weight, sleep better, have a happier mind, and increase my sex drive!

What I decided was to look at my health, lifestyle, body and mind and so I am discovering the world of ketosis!

How Are Dietary Fats and Sex Hormones Related?

First things first I want to explain how dietary fat and sex hormones are connected.  It’s surprising to learn that there is even a connection between the two.  Now here’s something to rock your world, high fat diets lead to an increase in estrogen!

A small study found a significant difference in the estrogen levels in women who ate a low-fat diet compared to women who had higher fat diets.  Low levels of estrogen can lead to a lower sex drive. Some symptoms are vaginal dryness and interferences in both your sleep and your mood.

Already I am excited for the next 30 days and I haven’t even started yet!

Who would have guessed that the hormone in charge of our sexual desires was also the one that helps us move fat around our body?


Although typically seen as a male hormone it is just as important in females, as it helps to produce estrogen.  It also impacts the libido.

As we females age our hormones have a natural decrease.  So the last thing we want to do is add to that decrease with the diets we put our bodies through by going low fat instead of low carb!

Did you know that high fat diets can improve testosterone in men!

Drops in testosterone can lead to low sex drive and erectile dysfunction as well as a drop-in energy, muscles and hair loss!  Some men can also gain weight specifically in the chest area which leads to gynecomastia commonly known as “man boobs”.

All this proves that the fat you eat actually makes a difference in your sex hormones and libido.

But I’m not saying to pick up your closest donut or deep-fried treats.  Those are trans fats and they too can reduce sex drive in both men and women.  Trans fats can cause abnormal sperm production in men and women may have trouble with gestation.

What Type of Fats are we Talking About Then?

Its monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats that you want to focus on that can improve your sex drive, help you to lose weight and also make your mind happier.

My aim in this journey is to concentrate on my confidence and sex drive. The extra weight I will lose will be a bonus!

When you’re a close fit and a little snugger, this not only causes insecurities on the inside. But also affects your sexual confidence in the bedroom and you’re less likely to be in the mood especially when you have to bare it all.

Keto is a high healthy fat, moderate protein and low carb diet that tackles all the issues in one go.

Losing weight is only the start of the journey.  Keto will help improve your hormone’s natural balance and increase your sex drive which your partner will be thanking their lucky stars for because your confidence in the bedroom will sky rocket!
