Food To Avoid Stress

Eat Fat and Sea Salt - Your body uses good fats to make happy hormones, so if you are on a fat free diet your body doesn't have what it needs to make any hormones. Good fats to eat include butter, olive oil, and coconut oil. You want to have plenty of sodium for your adrenals to function and sea salt also contains trace minerals.

Eat Meat and Eggs - You want to make sure you are giving your body frequent, high protein meals and snacks. Proteins contain Amino acids, and they are the building blocks for healthy cells and proper function of the endocrine system. Limit your sugar, alcohol, and caffeine, a diet high in these three puts daily stress on your body and your adrenals have to respond to this stress as much as they do the deadline at work.

Have Protein for Breakfast - If you have carbohydrate or fruit for breakfast the sugar will cause your adrenals to be stressed and working hard before you even start the day. A better option is eggs cooked in butter.

Eat Real Food - Try to avoid any fake food, if you can't recognize the ingredients, neither can your body.
In addition, you also need to be taking a "whole food" multi-vitamin and an extra vitamin C and B complex. These are vitamins that are quickly used up when under daily stress so we need to take them daily. You also need to supplement magnesium, especially at night to help you sleep and repair your body while you are resting.
