Mindful Eating, ADHD and Nutrition

June 27, 2015

The words attention deficit are so strongly associated with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), many people overlook other far-reaching consequences of the disorder.  Among them are poor eating habits, eating disorders, and a higher-than-average risk of becoming overweight as a result of having ADHD.    For example, a recent study linked ADHD to binge eating.  How these eating issues happen makes a lot of sense when you understand the impact of ADHD on life management as a whole.

Executive function includes cognitive abilities that act as the brain’s manager.  ADHD is essentially a consequence of poor executive function, not inattention or impulsiveness. That means it undermines skills such as time management, decision making, organization, and planning.  For people with ADHD all these management-level mental abilities can be difficult.
