The preoccupation with food holds great importance for any person and is not, in any case undignified for a man. Because food is the main source of energy for the body, interest in it is natural.
A commonly known and accepted fact is that in the absence of fuel, even the most effective mechanism ceases to function. Likewise, the physical body cannot function properly if it is not cared for accordingly.
PRECONCEIVED IDEAS AND SOLUTIONS
The way we choose our food, the spices we use, the quantity of food, and the moments of rest are factors influencing the vigor and vitality of any man. A man that lacks vitality is like a fighter with clay feet.
Men have the tendency of quickly consuming their energy reserves and therefore, they need to systematically refresh them. The concern for one's diet does not equal the preoccupation for eating the most delicious meals, or the mathematic dosage of calories and other elements.
When talking about 'real' food for any man, many people think about diets that include meat, seasoned with all kinds of stimulating aliments, among which alcohol holds an important place.
This is a common opinion, shared by the great majority of people. However, a diet based on meat is not recommended for men who wish to increase their virility.
The most recent discoveries in the area, especially the ones connected with vitamins, amino acids, enzymes, and various hormones have caused a radical change in the Western conception about food. Natural style and 'green' diets win over more and more adepts.
According to some careful observations, vegetarians, especially those whose diet is based mainly on fresh fruits and vegetables, life for a longer period of time, maintain their vigor until old age, and are less predisposed to cancer, sclerosis, hepatic diseases, intestinal disorders, etc.
Furthermore, vegetarianism is also indicated for intellectual activities. It is not a mere coincidence that famous men such as Einstein, Darwin, or Newton were vegetarians.
In addition, it is not a secret that most of the contemporary personalities in movies and music have a diet that is almost exclusively vegetarian.
ISSUES ABOUT CHOOSING PROPER FOOD
This presentation was based on the following facts:
1. The best and most fit diet for a man is a Yang diet.
The following, will explain the reasons supporting this statement. The whole Universe is generated by and subject to the two complementary and opposed forces, known in Oriental tradition as YIN and YANG, corresponding to its feminine and masculine aspects.
Consequently, even food has a certain energetic predominance of one of the two fundamental forces, Yin or Yang, up to a certain degree.
You have to bear in mind that in the beginning, you may not enjoy consuming Yang aliments. If so, it means that there is an excess of Yin energy build up inside you, which is temporarily influencing your culinary taste.
In time, as you acquire more and more Yang energy, your culinary preferences will change.
2. Each of you should choose your food according to your basic needs and necessities. What may be medicinal food for someone may prove to be, at a certain time, damaging to someone else.
Sexual vigor has a close relationship to one's general state of vitality. It is common knowledge that in the case of feeble/weak and fat men, the sexual glands (the testicles) do not function properly, and consequently, their penises have unsatisfactory sizes and hardness.
In such situations, the suggested diet is different. People who are really fat and lack vitality because of this surplus, will adopt a diet that is made up mainly of raw vegetables, light food, and during certain periods of time they will fast.
People suffering from asthenia and lacking vitality will eat more consistent types of food, and their meals will be regular.
TYPES OF SEXUAL DISORDERS
The sexual disorders that may be cured through diet are as follows:
A. For a diminished sexual appetite, rigidity in relationships with the opposite sex and obesity it is recommended that you consume light and fresh aliments.
B. For overcoming unpleasant states such as possessiveness, jealousy, diminished sexual appetite, or on the contrary, its exacerbation pushing you towards states of fury, discontent and irritability, it is recommended that you eat pure and sweet fruits.
C. For overcoming a weak erection, accompanied by low vitality, quick ejaculation and an oscillatory sexual appetite, it is recommended that you eat rich nutritious food.

In the orient, they are known to amplify erotic and vital energy, and at the same time stimulate the transformation and sublimation of these energies.
Also, recent research has proven that the majority of eatable mushrooms have beneficial effects related to organic and mental stimulation. They are highly recommended for people confronted with sexual disorders due to convalescence or poor diet.
Famous as an aphrodisiac plant, celery is a traditional aliment for maintaining and regaining sexual vigor. The leaves are recommended as spices for many kinds of food, or in different vegetable salads (quite useful in rejuvenating cures as well - especially for overweight people). Raw celery leaves are an excellent stimulant for hormonal activity.

Ginseng is an erect plant growing from 8 to 15 inches in height and bearing three leaves at its summit. Each leaf consists of five thin, stalked leaflets. Six to twenty greenish-yellow flowers are produced in a small cluster during July and August, followed later by bright crimson berries.
Ginseng has a thick, fleshy, spindle-shaped root 2 to 3 inches or more in length and about 1/2 to 1 inch in diameter, often branched. After the second year the root becomes branched or forked and it is the branched root, especially if it resembles the human form, which finds particular favor with the Chinese, who are the principal consumers of this root.
The Chinese have been fascinated by the 'man' plant for over five thousand years. Like mandrake, the most potent ginseng roots are said to be shaped like the human body. The Chinese believed that even better results could be obtained when the root was dug up at midnight during a full moon. Oriental men have consumed this root daily for millennia in order to retain their virility. An ancient medical manuscript of India says that ginseng "bestows on men both young and old the power of a bull".
A Chinese materia medica of the fourth century presented a list of exotic ginseng recipes that supposedly increased sexual appetite. Shen-Nung, one of the first Chinese emperors who practiced alchemy and continence (sex without ejaculation) for rejuvenation recorded that he felt warmth and sexual desire after chewing some of the root. Ginseng's reputation as an aphrodisiac, however, owes most of its power to the doctrine of signatures, since it has a phallic shape.
Tantra Magazine HOW CAN I PREPARE IT?
Ginseng can be taken in a number of different ways. The best method is to chew a 1-inch piece about the thickness of a pencil. Saliva helps activate its qualities; simply swallowing capsules is not as efficient. The Chinese make a tea by boiling 1 teaspoon of the root filaments in a pint of water for ten minutes. The pulp is not wasted but is used several more times and is then chewed and swallowed.
Ginseng tea should be sipped slowly, thus allowing it to combine with the salivary fluids before swallowing. Another way to take Ginseng is in the form of a very expensive Chinese wine called kaoliangwhich contains ginseng roots soaked in a cask for at least three years. As strong as vodka, it is usually sipped as a nightcap.
Daily intake of ginseng as a general sexual tonic might be considered by some as important a daily ritual as brushing one's teeth. It certainly was an intrinsic part of the Taoist orientation toward sex.
Taoist magicians believed in the importance of balancing male (yang) and female (yin) elements in the act of love. They considered that if the lovers were in harmony, it would nourish both of them, bringing them closer to the spirit of the universe. When the lovers were in balance, neither strove for pleasure independently of the other.
Taoists contended that the "life force" was contained within the by-products of the orgasm (i.e., semen and vaginal fluids). Therefore, in order to maintain balance, they make love without ejaculatory orgasm.
For Taoists lovemaking is a form of meditation that may continue for several days. In order to maintain their vigor, they sought to remain in a state of philosophical calmness. By not striving for a climax and by remaining detached and cool, they used their concentration to increase sensitivity in every part of their body. This awakens the most subtle sensations in a slowly unfolding process.
In the West, the orgasm is considered to be the supreme goal and reward of lovemaking. Aside from certain magical practices, failure to experience sexual release is considered harmful and neurotic. But this attitude contains a cultural bias. We have become obsessed with "achieving" orgasms, the more the better. However, an evening of Taoist lovemaking might restore some sacredness to your relationship. If lovers attempt to complement and harmonize with one another, both will be nourished.
Masters of the more advanced Taoist techniques concentrated on not wasting their essences, devising ways to prolong pleasure and stave off release.
