and at one time secondary adrenal insufficient and a whole host of other issues.
I workout hard and try to eat a healthy diet but it doesnt work... i won't go into all the details but basically.... when i workout it does a number on my body i believe its due to cortisol but i may be wrong... when i eat clean/low carb/ healthy nutitional foods i look/feel horrible
and it requires me to binge on the worst foods possible to look and feel human... i try to go back to the healthier way of eating and it starts up again.
A typical week goes like this.
Go to gym workout hard.
the next few days despite eating the correct number of calories but choosing what most would class as healthy wholefoods
i begin to bloat all over/hold onto a lot of water.. face puffy, chest, abs etc...
pee a lot but the above continues despite this....
cant sleep even though tired.
sore/pressure behinds eyes.
sore all over muscles/bones
feel sick to the stomach with hunger
next day instead eating the same amount of calories with healthy foods i replace those calories with junk food... pizza...chocolate...etc
sleep like baby...bloating comes down.. no longer run to the bathroom as often.. muscle/bone pain goes away... feel more alive to the world.
Both days i consume the exact same amount of calories, so it isnt how much i eat but what i eat that is key.
seems my body wants carbs.... chocolate... sugar....
I keep leaning towards adrenals but every article i've read about adrenal health advices to eat wholesome organic foods and avoid processed sugars etc...
so what gives ?
