If there’s a theme developing from my blog posts, it’s that female gossips and weight loss seem to mix beautifully. Although it’s not necessarily surprising that women’s conversations involve the lighter side of life, it’s still rather satisfying when a topic that was once reserved for the kitchen table spills over into the lounge room. Especially when that topic is as funny and enlightening as weight loss.
According to the American Institute of Stress, nearly two in five American adults experience some form of stress in their daily lives. While much of that stress is caused by our individual responsibilities and challenges, there is a growing body of research that points to the role that food plays in helping us deal with stress. Specifically, there’s a diet pattern known as the ‘vagina diet’ which research has linked to improvements in women’s moods and sexual appetites, as well as a lower risk of heart disease.
The Importance Of A Healthy Vagina
As you’ve probably guessed from the name, the vagina diet is all about having a healthy vagina. More specifically, it’s about maintaining a healthy weight in your vagina. A healthy vagina will not only make you feel better, but it will also ensure that you’re capable of having satisfying sex and delivering healthy babies.
Vagina weight is more than just a physical issue. With the majority of cases of infertility being attributable to poor semen quality, not maternal factors, there is a wealth of research linking poor vaginal health to sexual dysfunctions and low libido, among other issues. That’s why it’s so important to pay attention to your vagina and ensure that it’s in good shape, both inside and out. This includes maintaining a healthy weight in your vagina.
Why Are Women Embracing The Vagina Diet?
It’s a common misconception that women have to lose weight to have a happier life. Sure, being in the right place at the right time with the right partner can make you feel a certain way. But it’s not just that. There are many other factors that go into a woman’s happiness.
First, as mentioned, a healthy vagina improves your sex life. Second, eating food that makes you feel good is an excellent way to boost your mood. And last but not least, the humble vagina has an uncanny ability to make you feel better about yourself. When you’re feeling down, having a good belly laugh is often all it takes to raise your spirits and put a smile on your face. So, at least in terms of physical health, it’s important to maintain a healthy weight in your vagina.
The Ingredients Of A Healthy Vagina
Now, as for what makes up a healthy vagina, that’s a bit more complicated. First off, your vagina needs good bacteria, or ‘favorites’, as they are known in the wellness world. The best kind of bacteria for your vagina are those belonging to the Lactobacillus genus. Consuming yogurt, fermented foods and vegetables, such as cabbage, can help your body produce more of these beneficial bacteria. So, eating the right food is an excellent way to improve your vagina’s health. Further, eating plenty of fiber is also crucial. The dietary fiber that’s found in fruit is excellent for your vagina. So is the kind you find in vegetables, nuts, and seeds. Try to include all three in your diet every day.
In addition to the right food, a healthy vagina also needs the right amount of water. As a general rule, you should drink at least eight glasses of water per day, or as directed by your healthcare provider. This will keep your vagina at its best and ensure that you’re not prone to infections.
How To Start The Vagina Diet
So, you’ve decided that you want to try the vagina diet. Great! The first thing you need to do is determine your starting weight. Since this is a dietary pattern, you should not go above what is considered a ‘normal’ or ‘healthy’ weight. Of course, if you’re already at a healthy weight, then there’s no issue with continuing to eat the way you are. Now, bear in mind that there is no specific weight that applies to everybody. This is something that you should discuss with your healthcare provider. Next, you need to set a weight loss goal. If you’re aiming to lose ten pounds, then you should start preparing a meal plan and sticking to it, no exceptions, until the weight is gone. Once you reach your goal, it’s time for a little celebration!
As for what kind of food to avoid, there are certain things that you should definitely stay away from. These include fried foods, greasy foods, and foods with added sugar, such as pop and candy. You should also try to stay away from foods with added salt and acidic elements, such as tomatoes, citrus fruits and vinegar, since they can all cause harm to your vagina. In short, a healthy vagina is a well-balanced one, and it is filled with lots of good bacteria and vitamins, as well as an absence of bad bacteria and toxins. So, make sure you include vegetables, fruits, and whole foods in your diet, and eliminate foods with added sugar, salt, and vinegar.
On the subject of sugar, it’s important to understand how much of it is really harmful. In most cases, too much sugar can lead to obesity, diabetes, liver disorders, and heart disease, just to name a few. However, not all sugar is created equal. Natural sugars, such as those found in fruit, are good for you, whereas the added kind, typically hidden in processed foods, has been shown to be highly problematic. This is because the added kind contains fructose, which has been shown to adversely affect the health of your vagina. So, if you want to maintain a healthy and happy vagina, then it’s important to keep your natural sugars to a minimum and avoid processed foods that contain added sugar.
In most cases, the vagina diet works amazingly well. However, there are a number of situations where it does not go as well as expected. These include women who are already prone to yeast infections, those who are taking immune suppressant medications, such as for cancer treatments, and those who have recently given birth, or are planning on doing so soon. If any of these situations apply to you, then it would be best to consult with your healthcare provider in order to find an alternative solution. Fortunately, these situations are rather rare, so you should not have any trouble sticking to the diet.
One more thing. If you follow the diet to the letter, then you will lose a lot of water weight, especially if you are not used to drinking that much. So, if you are planning to take a dip in the ocean anytime soon, then make sure you rehydrate beforehand, or you will end up suffering from dehydration, which is not a good thing.
In summary, if you want to improve the health of your vagina, then you need to pay attention to what you eat. First off, get the right food. That includes vegetables, fruits, and whole foods, as opposed to food that is fried, greasy, or filled with additives. Further, make sure that you are drinking enough water. Last but not least, determine your starting weight, set a weight loss goal, and follow the diet plan to the letter, in order to achieve your desired results. If you want to shed those last few pounds that you never, ever seem to be able to get rid of, then give the vagina diet a try, since it has been proven to be both effective and safe.
