High GI Foods

Signs of adrenal fatigue

High GI (glycemic index) foods are the foods you should stay away from to stay healthy. They are high in sugar and have little nutritional value. Unhealthy adrenals can’t handle
heavy loads of sugar and will leave you even more exhausted, so you need to be aware when consuming these foods.

Foods Rich In Highly Processed Carbohydrates:

White potatoes
Some fruits: bananas, grapes, cherries, and watermelon (though these have
nutritional value they are high in sugar, eat in moderation.)
Many breakfast cereals, including puffed rice and corn flakes
Soda (including Gatorade, Powerade, etc.)
Cookies and crackers
snack chips
Yogurt (unless it’s unflavored)
Fruit juices
Fruit “leather,” strips, etc.


Alcoholic beverages (including beer, wine, and “hard” liquors)
Fructose-rich foods (most commonly fruit juices, honey, high fructose corn
syrup, and agave nectar
