Does weight loss increase libido in obese men with low sex drive? Evidence-based answer: Yes. Consumption of a low-calorie diet for at least 8 weeks resulting in a mean weight loss of 9.5 to 12 kg is associated with an increase in sexual desire in obese men (SOR: C, small cohort study). Weight loss (mean body mass index [BMI] decrease of 17-20 kg/m2) achieved through bariatric surgery is also associated with an increase in sexual desire and drive in obese men who have low sex drive compared with nonsurgical controls (SOR: B, small cohort studies).
