Did you know that your eating habits could be influenced by your ADHD?

And that it can be harder to lose weight if you have ADHD?

Not only that, but binge eating, bulimia, and obesity are more common among women with ADHD.

Pretty depressing, right?

There are a number of reasons why these things are true:

There is very little research done on the subject of eating disorders and ADHD, especially as it relates to women.

But I have some good news.

While it is not specific to women, the University of Birmingham in England is doing a study on eating behaviors.

They are looking for participants between the ages of 18 – 60, with or without ADHD.

You simply take a survey – they say it takes about 40 minutes – and you can be entered to win an Amazon gift card worth 50 pounds; about $75 in U.S. currency.

For more information, click the link or contact the researcher.

I hope you decide to participate; it’s important for all of us and our children.

What about you?

Is the subject of eating disorders, binge eating, or just overeating relevant to you?

I know I struggle with eating out of boredom or stress eating. I gained 10 lbs in the 6 weeks after my dad passed away. It’s hard.

If you’re willing to share, I’d love to hear your experiences. You can email me if adding a comment is too uncomfortable.
