Men who eat a diet high in red meat, processed meats and refined carbohydrates have a higher incidence of ED than those who eat a Mediterranean-style diet high in nuts, whole grains, fish, fruits and vegetables, according to a analysis of studies published online on May 4, 2010 in the “Journal of Sexual Medicine.”

Adopt a Mediterranean-Style Diet

Men suffering from ED had improved erectile function after adhering to a Mediterranean-style diet for two years, reported Wendy Kohatsu, M.D. and colleagues at the May 2009 University of Arizona Health and Nutrition Conference. The Mediterranean diet includes nutrients that increase the life span, improve sexual function in both men and women, and lower the risk of ED, heart disease, cancer, obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. These beneficial nutrients include monounsaturated fats, omega-3 fats, antioxidants, plant sterols and fiber.

Mediterranean Diet Foods

The Mediterranean diet is based on traditional eating habits of people in the Mediterranean region. To follow this style of eating, include olive oil in your diet. Olive oil is rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and is the most abundant fat in the Mediterranean diet. Consume several servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Eat fish, a rich source of omega-3 fats, about twice per week. Keep dairy intake moderate, and eat mostly yogurt and cheese. Limit alcohol to two 5-oz. glasses of wine per day to get the benefits while keeping possible health risks low. Eat whole grain foods instead of refined grains, and eat plenty of legumes, such as beans, lentils and peas. Only eat red meat and other foods high in saturated fats occasionally.
