Depression is one of many contributing factors of impotence, and one cause for men becoming depressed is being overweight. Cialis has been shown to help men with weight issues return to healthy sexual activities. But for the drug to be as effective as possible, there are additional steps overweight men can take to reduce ED symptoms.
Change Eating Habits
Begin by determining what your typical daily calorie intake is and then compare that against recommended calories based on your age and height. Part of this will be based on Body Mass Index (BMI) guidelines. The fastest way to reduce calories is by eating smaller portions. You also want to eat less high-fat foods. The better you eat the more energy you will have and less depressed you will feel. Addressing these factors can improve the effectiveness of ED drugs.
Consume Less Alcohol
Men can often put on weight because they drink too much alcohol. If you drink excessively, you should seek medical assistance to stop drinking to minimize withdrawal symptoms. You should not mix alcohol with ED medications so it is recommended you deal with any substance use issues you have prior to using this medication. If you are not sure if you have an alcohol addiction, consult a doctor for advice.
This can be as simple as taking daily walks or taking the stairs at working instead of using elevators. Exercise strengthens your heart which reduces risks during sexual activity. You will also have more energy which translates into greater stamina. The more you move about, the less tired you will be, and the stronger your libido. A strong libido enhances the effects of ED medication.
Since these drugs do not cause or increase arousal, it is necessary to address libido and testosterone issues before seeking drug intervention for your ED symptoms. Taking ED pills when you have a weak libido may increase your feelings of inadequacy. Cialis can only work properly if you are able to become aroused. When following these recommendations it becomes possible for overweight man to have a strong sex drive and this will improve the way Cialis is able to treat ED symptoms in terms of overall effectiveness.
