Hi Christo,

I am yet to be diagnosed, but have long suspected I have ADHD and I am in the process of trying to get a diagnosis. I find that my symptoms get much better when my diet is in check and sticking to a structured gym routine. As for your question, with regard to macros, I am not sure what Macros are best for the relief of ADHD symptoms because it probably isn’t a one size fits all kind of question. The macros I am currently following are 40 percent protein, 35 percent fat and 25 percent carbohydrates. I guess it also depends on if you have a weight loss/gain goal as well. This combination works best for me, but it might be a case of testing different variations to see what works for you.
