Thats the buzz from anti-sugar advocate Connie Bennett who runs sugarshock.com, and says too many sweets can turn a love life sour.
Bennett a reformed sugar addict who was once hooked on those little candy hearts says chocolate and sweets can make a lover cranky, tired, and not in the mood for romance.
She explains, Sugar lowers your libido. Candy hearts wont make you sweet for your sweetie, theyll make you a shrew!
Additionally, Bennett says candy can cause women anguish and dread because theyll be tempted to scarf down the entire box of chocolates.
This can lead to weight gain and self-esteem issues, which, in Bennetts words, Opens up a whole other can of worms.
Instead of tempting their ladies to binge on sugary treats, Bennett suggests guys take her sweeter gift challenge and give their valentines alternative gifts like massages, flowers, homemade cards, and kisses.
