Thread: Adrenals and low carb issues??

  1. #1

    Arrow Adrenals and low carb issues??

    Hi, I am just starting to do research on the HCC diet. I plan on doing injections. But I have severe adrenal issues. I really cannot tolerate any stress. Eating a low carb diet such as less than 50 grams a day has bothered me in the past when I did a keto diet. Has anyone had a similar reaction being on P2 diet?

    Thanks - Lesley

    I have low adrenals too but 2 fruits a day are enough to keep me out of ketosis. The percentage of carbs is good in comparison to calories and protein so most don't have problems. A ketogenic diet is awful for low adrenals.

    I have a similar issue with adrenals as well.

    At this time of the year when the fruit selection is pretty much limited to apples, oranges, pears, and bananas (I'm allergic to all berries except cranberries) I can keep my carb count high enough by eating natural cane sugar in small amounts such as a few tbsp in my daily cup of coffee . If I don't have coffee on a certain day, I find that eating 2-3 small pieces of candy (Jolly Ranchers, Peppermint Disks, Caramels, etc.) during the day, also works for me with no gains. Depending on what else I ate that day, I may even have a loss.

    The funny thing is that I don't have a sweet tooth at all - lol!

    Just to make it clear, sdwis isn't talking about when she's on the protocol.

    Grammy is correct, I was referring to P4 which is when my adrenal issues begin to show up and a bit of sugar seems to help with it.

    I don't have adrenal issues in P2, and eat the allowed fruits except strawberries with no problems. In my second round I skipped the fruits in P2, but also found it to be the hardest to stabilize.

    Was there a reason you skipped fruits on your second round? Even when my losses are slow i never skipped my fruits....i see many posters who suggest eliminating fruits and i am not sure why. It would be interesting to know how they stabilized going into various phases. I kept the two fruits per day for all the phases except in P4 i sometimes may just have none or one if i am eating starchy or sweet things

    I've been taking an adrenal cocktail at 10am and 4pm (the time when adrenals need support the most). The one I use is 1/2 lemon, heaping tsp baobob powder (for vitamin C), 1/4 tsp each cream of tartar (potassium) and mineral salt. I think the original one calls for orange juice, but unless you need the sugar, lemon seems to work fine.

    Even though my adrenals were supposedly normalized a couple years ago, I see a benefit from doing this cocktail in improved sleep and more alertness in the mornings. And I don't even always remember to do the 4pm one.
