The intersection of neurodivergence with disordered eating is a relatively unexplored area. Thought hyperactivity, food urgency, and nervous system dysregulation can have powerful consequences on our relationship with food. We talk to Becca King (aka The ADHD Nutritionist) about things like:

  • Gender differences in ADHD
  • Types and symptoms of ADHD
  • Hyperactivity of the brain (hyperactive thoughts)
  • Becca’s experience with EDs
  • Stimulation through food (while watching TV, at night when meds wear off)
  • What can we do about impulsivity with food
  • How to slow down
  • Do you need a diagnosis? How would it help?
  • Medication
  • Becca’s notable sources of dopamine
  • ADHD and restriction
  • How family and helping professionals can support people with ADHD
