Become a weepy, whiny, depressed, co-dependent mess several months into a new relationship? Regular sex is the culprit. If you don’t replace your energy loss caused by all the new sexual activity quickly enough, your energy stores are gradually drained, compromising your immune system and negatively affecting your mental state. The issue is compounded by the typical social habits associated with romantic courtship that also drain your energy such as alcohol and drug use, and less sleep.
The issue is easily solved by rationing the sexual activity and cutting out all sweets, fruits, tobacco, caffeine, alcohol, and recreational drugs along with increasing your consumption of whole grains and/or red meat. A few good night’s sleep will also go a long way to rebuilding your energy, stamina, and healthy outlook on life.
