The Strong Link Between ADHD and Diet
You know how filling your car with cheap gas leaves your engine pinging and knocking? The link between ADHD and diet isn’t far off. Eat the wrong foods, or don’t eat, and you will be more distracted and less motivated.
Your ADHD brain is like a high-performance car. It runs better on quality fuel with regular pit stops. Just this simple change will make controlling your ADHD symptoms tons easier.
Food is fuel for the ADHD brain. Which is why your diet is vital to your brain’s performance.
If you want an easier life with ADHD you have to take the link between diet and ADHD seriously. That’s why we cover the ADHD-Friendly Diet early in the ADHD Success Club.

When I get someone to shift their eating habits getting their ADHD out of the way becomes so much easier. They are on the way to creating a life they dream of having.
So, what kind of fuel does the ADHD brain need?
Today I’ll share a quick summary of the best diet for ADHD. Also, what foods you want to avoid if you have Attention Deficit. Simply put, the wrong diet makes ADHD symptoms worse.
