Eat Like a Greek
The Mediterranean diet, with its emphasis on fish, vegetables, fruit, healthy fats and whole grains, isn't good only for your heart and your waistline—it may also help cure issues below the belt. Studies have found that switching from a diet high in processed food, salt, sugar and fat (i.e., the typical American diet) to the Mediterranean way of eating can spark a new sexual vitality in people with high blood pressure, obesity or type 2 diabetes.
