Eating Starches for Adrenal Health

Good info on diet and adrenal healing from 20 Something Allergies:
 So often, I hear the story that someone read a slew of articles or very popular book and decided to cut starches and grains from their diet to heal a leaky gut. They are now dealing with significant – or severe – adrenal hypofunction and usually accompanying thyroid hypofunction.
  • cold extremities
  • inner trembling
  • increased brain fog
  • moderate to severe fatigue
are just a few of the most common symptoms of the stress to these all-important glands.
It puts massive strain on the body and can easily cause full adrenal fatigue....
A huge, huge component of adjusting your diet is to make sure you’re getting enough calories. Many clients come to me eating 700-1200 calories a day and wonder why they can’t heal with their recommended ‘perfect’ diet. For someone dealing with fatigue who is of average size and not an athlete, it can take a minimum of 2000 calories per day for your body to even begin the healing process.Eat my friends. And eat a lot.
