It’s not all in your head, it’s not a sign of age, nor is it even a lack of interest: About seventy million American men and women have problems in the bedroom. It’s no wonder designer drugs like Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis are in such high demand. But research shows that for many of us, the problem that ends in the bedroom starts in the kitchen, and that great nutrition is the real secret to great sex.

Written by two health psychologists with both clinical and academic experience in nutrition and sexual function, and backed by the latest nutritional and medical research, Great Food, Great Sex is the first food book designed to fire up sexual vitality in both men and women. The simple-to-implement program–including recipes from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health–serves up a dazzling array of sumptuous foods packed with the key nutrients that provide an ample supply of nitric oxide (NO), the proven “miracle molecule” for optimal sexual function.

Robert Fried and Lynn Edlen-Nezin’s plan focuses on the three food factors for sexual vitality: nitrogen-rich vegetables and legumes that deliver NO, proteins high in the amino acid L-arginine (another source of NO), and brightly colored super-antioxidants that combat the destructive effects of free radicals. In Great Food, Great Sex you will find straightforward nutritional information that will help you make smart food choices, along with creative ideas for menus and simple recipes for fantastic dishes that really deliver, like

• Broccoli Beef Ginger
• Finger-Licking Curried Chicken
• Spinach Stuffed Sole
• 1-2-3 Peach Cobbler
• Poached Pears with Raspberries
• Luscious Chocolate Strawberries

The only “side effects” you’ll experience are a higher energy level, weight loss, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure.

So put the spark back into your sex life, without supplements or dull menus. All you need is an appetite–for great food and great sex. Who knew that getting healthy could be so much fun!
