1. Being overweight can cause hormonal imbalances that can lead to decreased libido

2. Being overweight can cause physical problems such as pain during sex, difficulty getting aroused, and difficulty reaching orgasm

“Life presents marriage and long-term relationships with lots of challenges, many beyond our control. However, there are plenty within our control, including our weight. Foolish financial decisions, laziness around household chores, poor career choices, irresponsible drinking or gambling habits or domestic abuse can all challenge a relationship. Yet is it a little taboo to talk about how weight gain can challenge the health and sexual relationship as time goes on? One of the key challenges facing clients coming to see me about their weight gain is maintaining a long-term intimate relationship.


are a natural part of who we are

We all have needs and desires. We get married promising to love our partners for their heads and hearts but the physical body is part of the commitment and can so easily be forgotten.

It may sound superficial, but without the bond of intimacy knock on effects can be catastrophic as resentment takes hold and closeness disappears. I see first-hand the hurt and devastation this can cause.

“In a loving relationship I believe physical attraction and sexual compatibility is often taken for granted – with the assumption there’s no need to work at it. The love can remain

over time but the sexual desire often fades, especially for women.”

So what can you do to kindle the flames of passion and keep that sexual spark alive? Below are some suggestions:

- Talk about your desires with your partner

- Make time for intimacy

- Be creative and playful

- Be present during sex

- Try something new

How losing weight will improve your love life

The love life of an overweight person is likely to be underperforming. Their self-esteem will have taken a battering, they may have lost confidence in their attractiveness and feel they no longer ‘measure up’. They are more likely to suffer from depression and this can lead to a loss of libido.

Obesity is a major factor in erectile dysfunction (ED) in men. In fact, it is thought that over 50% of men with ED are obese. Obesity can also lead to anorgasmia in women – the inability to reach orgasm

The good news is that losing weight will help to improve your love life. As you lose weight, you will begin to feel better about yourself. You will have more energy and you will be able to enjoy physical activity more. This will lead to improved cardiovascular health and increased libido.
