ADHD Nutrition and Weight Loss/Gain

Dieticians/Nutritionists - ADHD Experts
Keywords:


Does anyone know where I can find nutritionists and/or dietitians that are well versed in dealing with adults with ADHD? I know that my impulsivity plays a HUGE part in my inability to lose weight/exercise/eat properly on a regular basis.

I see a therapist twice a month to talk about my anxiety and ADHD and I LOVE HER - she just doesn’t do the food thing. I also tried seeing a dietitian but she didn’t understand the ADHD; she thought I was just lazy.

Any resources would be absolutely appreciated - thank you!

I can’t recommend specific people to work with, but ADDitudeMag.com has some good articles on managing weight when you have ADHD:
