ADHD Nutrition and Weight Loss/Gain


Has anyone worked w/OA, attended meetings, found a sponsor & lost weight successfully?  I need your help.


I have for 29 years. It’s the only thing that worked for me with my food, and I am at a normal weight and generally, free from the compulsion and have learned how to eat healthier, still enjoy my food, change many areas and aspects of my life that I had no control over before. I also discovered my ADD after putting down the food, which had masked it. It is not uncommon to have ADD/ADHD and problems with food, alcohol or drugs, as we use these to cope and make up for what we lack in executive functions, and to just plain feel better about ourselves!!  Would be glad to write or talk offline. I read the guidelines & I believe it’s okay to share contact info, so here is my cell. You can text me your email. (847) 899-8054, and we can proceed from there..
