Avoiding Foods that Contribute to Adrenal Fatigue

Part of the Adrenal Fatigue For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Diet plays an important role in managing adrenal fatigue. You need to know which foods to add to your diet and which foods to avoid. The foods listed here can acutely stress out an already fatigued adrenal gland. They may provide a short-term energy boost, but cause you to crash later in the day.

  • Foods high in sugar

  • Anything with high-fructose corn syrup

  • Caffeinated beverages

  • Energy drinks

  • Carbonated beverages, especially colas (even if they’re caffeine-free)

You also want to avoid any foods to which you have a sensitivity or allergy. Examples of common food sensitivities include gluten and wheat. Gluten, like other food sensitivities, can be a cause of chronic inflammation and an overactive immune system. It’s a potent stimulus of adrenal fatigue.
