Fat Intake Dictating Hormone Circulation?

I’ve been food journaling for a couple of months and noticed that when I cut down on fat my sex drive disappears. It makes me wonder what other hormones are being short-circuited by the limited intake. Has anyone else noticed similar effects?

Yes, many people have, which is why you typically see recommendations on this site to maintain at least 20% of your caloric intake from healthy fats.
