A Framework: ADHD Nutrition
Posted February 2nd, 2008 by Carroll King Schuller
Some thoughts on ADHD Nutrition…
If you’re a fast thinker, you know what happens when your blood sugar crashes. You could be pulling yourself through a tedious task admirably when suddenly all you can think about is food.
Now the problem is compounded, because nothing’s nearby but candy, which is only going to lead to a worse crash later. But what are you going to do? You’re already thinking about your next three tasks.
Here’s how you fight crashes: feed your fast brain. Make it a habit to structure your day so that you’re never more than a few hours away from a planned meal, even if you have to enlist coworkers to keep you on track. Replace the candy cravings by stocking your working area with healthy snacks, of which you’re going to want a variety.
