Hormonal problems in CFS - a clinical picture - the ectomorph - DoctorMyhill
Ectomorphs often have Cronic fatigue syndrome.
On Jaminet's website there is a item about the fact that somem people who eats very high carb in their meal can see their Thyroid hormones rise up and this cause that their meatbolism increases. If you see the site you can read that ectomorphs ususally have a very high metabolism and ususally they have adrenals stress.
Now I've experimented a diet where I eat a day white rice and a day I only eat a few fruits until dinner what a very large amount of fats.
I used eat before whatever I want to start the diet lot of junk food to feel worse and see the affects of the diet. Well the second day when I begin the semi-fast with fruit I have a terrible adrenal symptoms. I'm tired, I'm nervous I have tummyache and headache and I feel very weak. The thrid day I eat rice or tomatoes the four day I have another fasting day. This time symptoms are less terrible than the second day. But I the sixth day I can fast easly with no problem.
I suppose that ectomorphs need to use safe starches cause in this time they can't rest so much to recover as in the paleolitical age. In the pas people like me can rest for a long time, there weren't TV, internet, night-club, but today to be social one is compelled to be awake even very late in the night and the modern life-style inclused the stressed jobs needs more carboydrate otherwise the adrenal glands are destroyed.
A thing is curious. I have four uncle by my mother side. well otwo are dead for cancer at bowel, the only ones that were very slim like (to be slim is sign of adrenal fatigue), the other ones that are a bit fat are ok even if they have some problems with their health.
Anyway what do you thin?, I suppose are too much a pound of starches every day and you?
