I just noticed bit of a change in my interest for sex while fasting. I don’t exactly know if it’s a direct effect of fasting, but anyone here who has experience lower libido during fasting? Plus tips to help with this problem?
What type of fasting? 5:2 or water fasting? I find 5:2 has no effect. When I do a five day WF I find it does lower my libedo day 4-5.
Fat behaves like an estrogenic organ for men, so as you get leaner libedo should rise. As mukica says there are many things that can lower libedo for men. Some additional ones are environmental pollutants and personal care products loaded with chemicals that mimic estrogen.

I remember as a student, I had a period when there was a problem with erection. I thought it was because of a reduced libido, but it turned out that it was because of the stress I was getting at college. So one day my girlfriend advice me to try this CBD Lozenges 5mg Orange to calm down and the result was pretty good. So maybe you have problems with stress too?

Fasting might reduce your energy to the extent that there is little to fuel libido. If you’re not type 2 diabetic, then you could try eating complex carbs again – modest to moderate portions should be fine.

I don’t really take note that much of it, but I just noticed one day that my libido has dropped during fasting. Normal from what I can find because energy is reduced when you’re doing so. Certain foods can also cause the drop, and others can do the opposite. Nothing I’d be too worried about.
