Stop Losing the Food Fight:
Many people with ADHD find themselves struggling to manage their busy lives. Work, friends, school, kids, downtime – it all adds up. This often leads them to develop unhealthy food habits, and make “quick & easy” food choices. This 8-session program has been designed to help you learn ADHD-Friendly solutions to healthy eating. You will learn how to make intentional, mindful, decisions. We want you to be able to indulge in a balanced way without self-shame or the feelings of guilt that may follow. Our goal is to provide a supportive environment to discuss food struggles, answer questions and help you develop strategies when overwhelmed or triggered. This group is a safe space for everyone at any stage of their journey, and is a shame and judgment free zone.
