Food has more of an affect on your body than how skinny you are! Did U know that some food can actually help your libido?

With the most romantic day of the year just a day away, Margaux J. Rathbun has some nutrition information for all the lovers out there! The nutritional therapy practitioner writes:

Looking to spice things up this Valentine’s Day? In addition to living a healthy, balanced life, there are certain foods that have been known to spice things up in the bedroom!

- Oysters are one of the more well-known foods that serve as an aphrodisiac. They are full of zinc, which can help produce sperm and increase libido in both men and women.

- Honey contains a lot of B vitamins and minerals that aid in getting people aroused.

- Try cooking with basil; it's been said to increase fertility. Make homemade pesto spreads with garlic, another aphrodisiac, and add it to pasta or use it on chicken dishes.

- Get things pumping' with ginger. This well-known spice gets the circulatory system flowing. Its spicy flavor is great in salads or even cooked with fish. Ginger also helps with digestion. We all know how un-sexy it is to feel bloated and full.

- Sugar, spice and everything nice? Not when you're cooking with nutmeg! A sprinkle of nutmeg on your dinner, dessert or even your date is sure to raise their body temperature and heat up the evening. Add it to a hot cup of cocoa or coffee for an after-dinner treat and watch the clothes melt off.

- Given the shape, it's not shocking to learn that bananas are said to stimulate the sex drive in men. Besides being loaded with potassium, magnesium and B vitamins, they also contain components that help arouse the boys. Go bananas, ladies!

- Want to put your man in the mood? Serve him wild yams or pumpkin seeds, two foods that have been said to help with get men going.

- Want to attract the ladies? It's been said that the scent of almonds arouses women. Gentlemen, maybe it's time to invest in a nice big bottle of almond oil?

10 Valentine’s Day Aphrodisiacs

10 Valentine’s Day Aphrodisiacs

The big day is coming up, and if you’re one of the lucky ones, you’ll also have a big night (wink, wink). LOL!

Here are 10 aphrodisiacs to give you a little extra boost with that special someone (compiled by Huffpo):

Oysters
Oysters' aphrodisiac fame comes from their suggestive shape and briny flavor. Rumor has it that Casanova, the great 18th century Venetian lover, used to dine on 50 oysters a day.

Chocolate
Chocolate's reputation as romantic fuel can be traced all the way back to the Aztecs, but it truly ran wild in eighteenth-century Western Europe. Autobiographies of the Marquis de Sade reveal that the salacious noble distributed chocolates laced with Spanish fly at his infamous balls, in order to inconspicuously arouse his guests.

Anise
Roman doctors prescribed anise — which does actually have a narcotic effect when eaten in large doses — as both an aphrodisiac and an antidote to poison.

Avocado
While its smooth flesh is undoubtedly sensual, avocado's aphrodisiac status derives primarily from its resemblance to male sexual organs as the fruit hangs on the tree. (The Aztec word for testicles is ahuacatl.)

Saffron
In ancient Persia, women in wedding parties sprinkled saffron on the marital beds of newlyweds to encourage sexual activity and fertility.

Basil
In Moldavian folklore, if a man accepts a sprig of basil from a woman, he is destined to fall in love with her.

Hot Peppers
The sixteenth-century Jesuit priest José de Acosta wrote a pamphlet warning Spanish explorers in Mexico and Peru not to eat the local chili peppers, describing in detail their effect in provoking lustful thoughts. The capsaicin in hot peppers can raise the heart rate, a feeling that mimics sexual arousal.

Nutmeg
Practitioners of Unani, a traditional medicine popular in India, prescribe nutmeg as a sexual stimulant.

Honey
Honey was a primary ingredient in many ancient Egyptian cures for sterility and impotence.

Truffles
Famous for their musky, earthy aroma, today, truffles are considered an amorous ingredient as much for their luxuriousness as their sexual connotations. Accounts of the life of Madame de Pompadour, King Louis IV's lover, describe her adherence to a diet of vanilla, truffles, and celery; she believed that it would provide her with the sexual stamina needed to satisfy the king.
