Do you have adrenal fatigue? Or is it possible that you are just not eating enough? The symptoms of adrenal fatigue look almost identical to the symptoms of starvation or anorexia. Many people who find themselves drawn into novel dietary philosophies or fad diets have a long history of restrictive eating and weight fixation.
These individuals have lost the ability to accurately gauge their hunger and satiety signals, and have frequently become conditioned to associate eating with feelings of guilt, shame and fear. Imposing further dietary restrictions on these people, as most dietary philosophies do, while ALSO telling them that calories don't matter and to not pay attention to caloric intake, leads inevitably to a situation I'm seeing more frequently in my practice: They may fill their plates up with protein and vegetables i.
There has been ample research done into what happens on a metabolic and hormonal level when a person chronically consumes fewer calories than their body requires to function optimally and maintain a healthy weight, from the Dutch Famine studies , to the Minnesota Starvation Experiment , to more contemporary research on anorexia and bulimia.
In the beginning, weight loss is the primary response. But as time goes on, several negative endocrine adaptations begin to set in. Metabolic processes slow down. Organs and muscles are catabolized for their proteins; reproductive functions are shut down, endocrine function is compromised on every level as the body loses its ability to synthesize hormones adequately; digestive function goes haywire; immunity is suppressed; blood pressure plummets and the body becomes extremely sensitive to cold; brain fog, depression, anxiety and insomnia set in; the subject develops cravings and fixations on food and eating; the body becomes unable to recover from exercise, and more.
These are established symptoms of starvation, supported by decades of research. Metabolism is every single chemical process of every single cell of your body. In my research I ran across an interesting research study done on high school and college students with a history of restrictive dieting.
Researchers compared the students' restrictive eating patterns and their physical and psychological symptoms with those experienced by the subjects of the Minnesota Starvation Experiment. In other words, these young people who were voluntarily restricting their eating were experiencing the same symptoms as the subjects of the Starvation Experiment. The list of symptoms associated with starvation is strikingly similar to lists of symptoms I've found on various websites selling adrenal fatigue treatments.
In fact, the similarities are SO striking that I made a graphic to illustrate it:. I'm noticing a high correlation between restrictive dieting and adrenal fatigue diagnosis in my clients and readers. Dietary restrictions aren't always a bad thing, but when they aren't indicated as a treatment for a medical condition i. More and more clients are coming to me exhibiting symptoms of, and frequently already having been diagnosed with, adrenal fatigue.
But when I have them complete a 3-day food log, it becomes painfully obvious that these people aren't consuming anywhere near enough calories to support their activity. I'm not saying that all cases of adrenal fatigue are starvation, and these people are certainly ill. And even worse, many of the adrenal fatigue treatment protocols I see being sold online not only impose further dietary restrictions, they actively discourage any attention to caloric intake.
This is a huge mess! People exhibiting these symptoms should be increasing the variety and richness of their diets whenever possible, and ensuring that their bodies are getting not only the nutrients but also the calories necessary to support their activity and a healthy weight. We need to acknowledge the relevance of adequate calorie intake, we need to disassociate morality from food choices, and we need to learn to recognize and reject cultural conditioning that ties eating with feelings of shame and guilt.
Eating a healthy amount of mostly healthy food will lead to a healthy weight. That is how I did it. I didn't restrict any foods or macronutrients, or restrict my calories below what my body needs to support a healthy weight. And over time, my body gradually stabilized at the weight my healthy intake supported. Restrictive dieting can work for some people, specifically people with a medical need for such restrictions, but for the vast majority of us simply improving the quality of our diet more whole foods, fewer processed foods , getting regular exercise walking is the bomb!
Playing around with extreme restriction is more likely to harm than help. A note from Cheeseslave: Whenever I read something Amber writes, it makes me want to don my sweats and swing my kettlebell.
I'm so inspired by how she has transformed her body, her health and her life by eating real food, not restricting her diet, and simply by moving, lifting heavy things, and getting enough exercise AND enough food.

Healthy eating is NOT skipping meals or juicing all the time. I know what I am doing tonight!!!! Sounds like its something that I will love and will help me go further! This was an informative post! She is an interesting person! Thanks for the post.
Keep up the good work — both of you! Amber I love the way you tell it like it is and every post you write is inspiring! I just get bigger and feel worse. Tried interval training…gained 20 pounds. What Amber had to say about starvation made sense but it was very hard to take that step of eating more…the last thing I need is to try the next new fad and gain more weight and feel worse than I already do.
Well, I took the step out of desperation. I upped my calories to depending on the day and activity level. I committed to hiking four days a week and lift weights 2 days. I did not gain weight. My menstrual cycle this month was not painful and was much easier to deal with.
The best thing is that I actually have the energy to exercise and want to do it because it feels good, not because I have to which is a huge change for me. So, thank you Amber! Keep up the good work, and keep me updated! Interesting but not all of it seems to apply to me. I did start to have weight issues a few years ago when I went grain free and increased my fat intake.
Those things may be related. But most of my life I have eaten what I wanted and most of my life even in high school 20 plus years ago I have had many of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue.
I never restricted food because I never had weight issues. When i used to eat what i wanted,i was losing weight! And following Go Kaleo. They are not the same thing, but they so often are treated as synonyms. Getting out of the restriction mindset is so important.
Interesting and thought-provoking article…thank you. Early on, I was definitely starving myself because I was gaining a lot of weight and wanted to stop that. At the time, I thought the obvious solution was to diet more and more strictly and exercise for longer and longer hours.
I continued getting fatter and sicker until I was bedridden. I eat a lot. I eat carbs, fat, grains not gluten due to CD , starches, protein and all kinds of good stuff. I do avoid soy and I miss it, but I notice it exacerbates my condition. And I limit sugar. Still working to increase the amount of food I can handle and bring my body temp up: Well, being one who is traveling the road back to health from the perspective of extreme adrenal fatigue understatement , I contend that starvation induces adrenal fatigue.
Stress on the body is stress. Also, the adrenals are intricately connected to digestion at every point, including buoying the body when calories are restricted. The adrenals kick in to tell the liver to release glycogen stores so that one can remain alive by keeping the blood sugar up far enough to be compatible with life and it releases steroids that give the energy to function and to release the fat from our cells in the absence of energy-giving calories and glycogen stores which get used up eventually.
The adrenals are all about keeping us in balance and alive, dealing with the stress that is all around us, and often in us, every day, all day long- and we very often ask more of them than they can handle, causing what I believe to be AF in most people living in fast-paced cultures.
The adrenals are at work in every one of those situations and, of course, many more- pretty much everything you do in life requires the adrenals to compensate to one degree or another. So, as I read this article I believe it is not adrenal fatigue OR starvation.
And I am as serious as a heart attack. The smallest unexpected noise can startle me to the point of almost passing out. I totally get where you are coming from. I remember the phone ringing and I burst into tears. And many people have developed fibromyalgia after traumatic events, as well. OR the stress hits me a few days later in the form of a terrible migraine, sore body, and extreme fatigue.
Exercise is also helping. Lam who is supposed to be a god when healing AF. The first thing he did was cut out all carbs because he told me it was too much sugar. Then he cut out sugar, alcohol, coffee,fruit, and of course any little thing that had wheat in it.
I ate meats, eggs, dairy and veggies. I got to the point where I wanted to throw up when it was time to eat because I was just so sick of the same thing over and over and over. But I never strayed because I really thought I was healing myself. Meanwhile, I became weaker and weaker. Just putting the clean dishes away wiped me out to the point that I was gasping for air. I think the thing he said that resonated with me the most, besides encouraging us to up our carbs, was that we spend so much time worrying -or in my case agonizing- over what we can, should, could, would eat that that process ends up being more damaging to our body than actually eating a stupid piece of cake, a cookie or shhhh!
Lam hear this, a piece of toast!!! So I eat, and then I eat some more, and then I eat more. I still get winded very easily, so I go nice and slow. Do I like being a size 16? But for the first time in 4 years I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
And boy, was it good!! They have never have told me to restrict my diet to the point they apparently did with you. But every body is different. Really sorry to hear of your negative experience, though. My life looks pretty normal now, though i still have to make sure not to overdo it which means a great deal more than it used to. I hope the people you are now working with can help you along the way.
Best wishes to you in your recovery journey. With potentially serious consequences, it is extremely important for a person with fatty liver to start treating, regulating, and monitoring the condition as soon as possible. So what fatty liver treatment options are available for reducing an enlarged liver? The most widely accepted and most successful treatment for fatty liver is dietary and lifestyle changes aimed at reducing fat in the body.
Many times, dietary changes are all that are needed to reverse and control the condition. Most diets for fatty liver focus on reducing the intake of high fat foods and increasing the amount of vitamin and mineral rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, and raw juices. Complex carbohydrates become the main fuel for the body instead of fat and protein, although the consumption of refined carbohydrates needs to be closely monitored.
These foods contain many preservatives, chemicals, and other substances that can be difficult for a damaged liver to process.
Drink at least 2 liters of water per day. She also includes over 30 delicious fatty liver diet recipes you can start using immediately to improve your liver health. Combined with dietary changes, the best fatty liver treatments also focus on exercise and other lifestyle changes focused on helping liver patients lose fat and reduce weight. Rapid weight loss through surgery, weight loss pills, or other methods is not recommended for fatty liver patients.
We like the approach of the Fat Loss Factor because it allows you to continue eating while losing weight and reducing fat in your body. Other fatty liver remedies are gaining popularity, although more testing and studies need to be conducted to get a true sense of their effectiveness.
