Why ADHD Brains Crave Sugar and Carbs

Becca King, a dietitian with ADHD who specializes in help others with ADHD develop health eating habits, shares the role dopamine plays in binge eating and explains the idea of “conscious eating” and why it’s important.  She also offers up advice to several questions Ned poses like, “How do I stop myself from eating the whole pint of ice cream?” and “How can I break the pattern of binging on carbs when I love eating them?”
