About ADHD
by: TJ Chambers

Just cutting out sugar and foods with colorings is not the only thing that needs to be done. There is more to it then that.

There are a lot of issues surrounding ADHD. What I recommend is to get this book. This book introduces all the issues and will give you a good understanding of ADHD.

What Kind of Diet
by: TJ Chambers

What kind of diet did you do exactly? It is good to know what you ate and drank all day, each day.

most people think they did a good diet to find that either they didnt do as good as they thought or they ate to many carbs and not enough protein.

Yes I have ADHD
by: TJ Chambers

Yes I have ADHD. I'm 32. My days aren't as bad since I have been reducing my symptoms with diet and a vitamin and mineral supplement.

My apartment is really dis organized and we still havent fully unpacked since we moved 8 months ago. I also zone out when reading or in a conversation if someone talks to long.

The advice you want is on this website. Eat a good diet of fresh foods and reduce the amount of carbs and cut out the sugar and dairy. Pay attention to how things you eat effect you.

Look at This assessment
by: TJ Chambers

Hi Rachael,

Only a doctor can diagnose you if you have ADHD or not. Check out this ADHD Assessment Checklist and verify your behaviors and tendencies towards ADHD. If most of them fit you, then there is a really good chance you are ADHD.

What you describe sounds a lot like the problems I experienced myself.
