The meal plan for reducing adrenaline is designed around the principle of providing a steady supply of fuel for the body and especially for the brain.
The importance of diet in treating hyperadrenalism cannot be underestimated. It represents 70 percent of the successful approach to lowering adrenaline and is essential in addressing all of the conditions mentioned in this book: the “good,” the “bad”, the “ugly” manifestations of excess adrenaline.

The meal plan for reducing adrenaline is designed around the principal of providing a steady supply of fuel for the body and especially the brain. It relies on the glycemic index, which rates foods according to how quickly and how high they raise the level of glucose in the blood, and consequently, the level of insulin. A useful version of the glycemic index is available in Appendix B.
