Hello. I read somewhere, forgot where it was, but I’m sure I saw it…they mentioned a protein heavy diet would help. The Paleo diet has been touted to possibly help with ADHD. Really if the Paleo diet doesn’t seem to make much difference with ADHD symptoms, you still win with it because its still a better way to eat healthy and that can’t hurt. I’ve been advised to try to stay away from processed foods, sugars, and alcohol, and get the proper amount of sleep…which would be great advise for everyone,whether they struggle with ADHD or not…Hope this helps.
