It is recommended this Adrenaline Dominance Diet-30 Day Meal Plan is read along with the Adrenaline Dominance book, although it can stand on it's own merits. It is available in paperback or digital version and in Kindle format on Amazon.
Adrenaline is a hormone that most people are aware of. It is best known as the “fight-or-flight' hormone, which is released in large quantities whenever we are in danger. It is an extremely powerful hormone, and has significant physiologic effects on our body. These episodes are usually short-lived, and as soon as the danger passes the adrenaline levels go back down.
However, there is another reason the body releases adrenaline, and it can occur throughout the day and night for sustained periods. The primary function of adrenaline is to ensure that the brain has a proper amount of fuel to operate. Anytime a low level of fuel is detected, the body releases adrenaline which can have a significant effect on our health, and certainly, on the quality of our life, including:

- cause conditions felt to be incurable such as chronic interstitial cystitis and PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder) cause weight gain
- create muscle tension in the neck resulting in tinnitus and headaches
It is important to have the understanding that the primary reason the body is releasing excess
adrenaline is simply to raise glucose levels for the brain. However, by giving the brain the fuel it needs, there is a reduced need to use adrenaline to provide fuel. Accordingly, there are two fuels the brain uses: glucose and ketones. The best source of glucose is derived from vegetables. Ketones are derived from coconut or MCT oil.
The key to lowering adrenaline is to eliminate the underlying reason why the body is overproducing it.
Since the brain uses more sugar than any other tissue in the body and must have sufficient fuel at all times, whenever the level of glucose in the brain is too low, the body releases adrenaline to raise the sugar level.
The primary approach to managing adrenaline is to follow a meal plan designed to feed the body, and especially the brain, a steady supply of the proper amount and the right type of sugar (that is, from low-glycemic carbohydrates) plus ketones, along with using a bio-identical progesterone cream.
Because everyone’s metabolism is different, there is no such thing as a one-size-ts-all meal plan. Thus the following meal plan should be treated as a set of guidelines, to be adjusted to the metabolic needs of each person’s body and brain. Even though this meal plan specifically addresses excess adrenaline, anyone who wants to eat healthfully can benefit from it.
The plan will lower any excess adrenaline that may be contributing to stress. And because the meal plan keeps insulin production low, anyone with a weight problem can follow these guidelines to lose weight healthfully.
