Adrenal Fatigue Stage 3: Gaining fat ...
I am researching about Adrenal Exhaustion- treatment and recovery for others with stage three. I have been tested six weeks ago and changed my lifestyle (no more Ironmans or racing this year). I am now focusing on easy "nature walks" and yoga as well as continuing with my low carb food plan (higher fat). My blood sugar control is out of my control and every week I seem to get fatter. Any suggestions? Any success stories? I can't heal if I get stressed or depressed but seeing my athletic figure go to saddlebags in depressing.
Have you tested your hormone levels? low progesterone can cause insulin resistance.
Are you taking Wilson's supplements?
I had stage 3 adrenal fatigue. It's been a long tricky road to recovery. Yes, it's difficult watching your body transform like that but sometimes it's necassary to proper healing. Yoga will definitely help keep your strength and flexibility I'm sure. Also, your other hormones are likely off as well. It's such a delicate balance! It took me 6 yrs to feel somewhat "normal" again, although, I had many life circumstances get in the way of healing and progress (nursing a baby, international move, homeschooling kiddos).
It does get better eventually, I promise
