How weight impacts your sex life

Unless you’ve been hitting the gym hard, nobody likes looking down at the scales to see that they’ve piled on the pounds. Weight gain can create psychological as well as physiological changes, both of which should be taken seriously. Weight gain has been known to decrease energy and self-confidence, as well as lower testosterone. All of these factors can contribute to erectile dysfunction and decreased libido.
