Dr. Patricia Raymond is a gastroenterologist who says Valentines Day delights like chocolate, candy, strawberries, whipped cream, and champagne could leave lovers in a farting fix.
To keep your dinner date from backfiring, Dr. Raymond urges people to avoid high-fat, greasy, and flatulence-producing foods like beans, broccoli, and brussels sprouts.
For a sensual second course, its best to choose dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate, red wine over bubbly champagne, and to take CharcoCaps a gas absorbing charcoal tablet before setting the mood with food.
She says, Gas is just not one of the most romantic things. It just doesnt seem to turn people on!
But despite the gassy nature of some of the sweet selections, the intestinal issues might be worth the romantic risk.
She says, If you give your Valentine hard candy, shes not going to get a lot of gas, but youre probably not going to get a lot of action.
