Has your relationship lost its magic? Wondering where the thrill has gone? We’ve got all the ingredients you need to whip your relationship back into shape.
It comes as a surprise to most people to learn that many relationship challenges can be linked to unhealthy food choices. Avoiding unhealthy foods can lead to the deep, meaningful, and harmonious partnership you desire and deserve. Today, I’ll talk about the top 3 foods to avoid if you want to create a more loving relationship.
The quality and nutritional value of your food impacts not only your physical and sexual health, but also your state of mind, and this in turn affects the state of your relationships. To strengthen a strained or struggling relationship, avoid these three foods:
1. Alcohol – Many people drink alcohol on a date to break the ice and lower inhibitions, but it doesn’t do much for your sexual health or the quality of your relationship. Consuming large amounts of sugar not only exhausts your body, but also blurs your judgment. Alcohol, which is a form of refined sugar, distorts thinking and impedes memory. Long-term alcohol abuse can also lead to anger and depression, two emotions that can wreak havoc on a relationship.
2. Meat – Although meat can effectively satisfy hunger and help to ground you, its heaviness and denseness can cause problems. Consuming meat on a regular basis makes your mind restless and cloudy, contributing to anger and aggressive thoughts. It also stimulates the adrenal glands and provides a jolt to the kidneys and reproductive organs. Over time, excess meat consumption can weaken the body, leading to impotence as well as a host of other health problems.
3. Restaurant Food – Even if you order the healthier choices from the menu, restaurant food carries the energy of the chef, which affects the energy of the relationship. Traditionally, a woman would cook meals for the man, contributing her loyalty and adoration to the ingredients. They would share the energy of the food and achieve a united state of mind. If a couple eats out in a restaurant, they take in the chef’s energy and thoughts, and they become united with the chef instead of with one another. To build a strong bond within a relationship, it is best if the couple eats only food prepared at home that is infused with the power and energy of their love.
An intimate, loving relationship should be nurtured from the inside out. To keep your mind clear and your relationship strong, avoid alcohol, meat, and restaurant food. This practice will also improve communication and understanding, because you and your partner will share the same state of mind.
