After finding MDA I started reading alot about IFing and was curious but did some research. Some things I came upon are http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread27894.html and ["]URL="http://www.thefeelgoodlifestyle.com/fasting-for-fast-weight-loss-superior-fitness-and-better-health.html"]which I was very intrigued by. I thought it was worth a try since my adrenals and thyroid were doing better. I have been doing the 5 day IFing for about 3 months now and my adrenals are about the same. I just had my thyroid checked and it's still normal.
I am really good at understanding when they are acting up. Signs of my adrenals are temp fluctuations, pupils not dialating properly or at appropriate times, blood pressure drops when I stand up, waking with racing heart for no reason, and anxiety attacks. First thing I do is look at my stress levels. Try to remove any that are easily removed. Cafeine usually is the first to go. I love it though so I find myself drinking decaf then reverting back to cafeine almost without thinking about it. Usually just getting rid of the coffee helps alot. Yoga is next. As long as I do yoga (which I can't always afford) then I usually start feeling better. Adrenals are VERY sensitive to hard exercise (I used to be a chronic cardio girl which probably contributed to thier downfall). So I don't do crossfit or kickboxing or even running as this stresses my body out more than anything else can.
For my thyroid it's mostly supplements and eating right. Gluten was the culprit for my thyroid issues. But I still have occasional rises or falls in T3 and t4 if I don't get enough iodine, selenium, magnesium, D3, vit c, and sodium. So I supplement all of them just to make sure I am taken care of in that department. Even while fasting or doing the potato feast.
So far no issues........
