Want to attract women? Forget pick-up lines, just pick up some celery.

The authors of a new health book called "Stay Young: Ten Proven Steps to Ultimate Health" claim that eating celery boosts the pheromone levels in a man's sweat, making him more appealing to the fairer sex.

Co-authors Dr. Judy Garman, Dr. Walter Gaman and Dr. Mark Anderson are calling celery "vegetable Viagra."

Celery contains androstenone, a naturally occurring steroid, which increases pheromone secretion, according to the doctors.

"We recommend that a guy work out, have a nice warm shower, chomp on a few sticks of celery, brush his teeth, and then head out the door smelling good," Garman said.
