4. Vegetarian Diet
Vegetarians are known for their strong stance on dairy and meat intake, including their stamina and energy in bed. A vegan diet that is high in fruit content can provide more sustainable energy that will not lead to the often seen “sugar crash” from processed sugar. For example, a banana is high in potassium, a nutrient that helps in sex-hormone production and boosts energy.
Tests have shown that vegetarians have twice the stamina of meat eaters. A study published in the Yale Medical Journal compared meat-eating athletes to vegetarians and near-vegetarians, half of whom were sedentary. Researchers measured how long they could hold arms outstretched and the number of deep-knee bends the participants did. The findings revealed only 13 percent of meat-eating athletes could hold their arms out for 15 minutes compared to 69 percent of vegetarians. Moreover, no meat-eating athletes could hold their arms out for 30 minutes compared to 47 percent of vegetarians. When it came to knee bends, only 33 percent of the meat eaters exceeded 352 knee bends, compared to 81 percent of their vegetarian counterparts.
