ADHD Nutrition and Weight Loss/Gain

What are your best go to books for ADHD diet, nutrition and meals

I am looking for cookbooks, menus, books on ADHD diet suggestions that you have found helpful. How long did it take before you saw an improvement in ADHD symptoms?


I think any book on “clean eating” would be a helpful guide for ADHD. The basic premise for ADHD is to cut out processed foods and chemical additives. Some people find removing gluten and/or dairy helpful as well (neither of those helped my son’s ADHD symptoms). If you follow the Paleo diet, you would be eating clean and eliminating gluten and dairy. I hear the Against All Grain cookbook is phenomenal—I’ve tried many of her recipes from her blog and they are great.
