“Everyone seems to be talking about fat these days. That fat somehow is good now and can help with weight loss and disease prevention. How can that be true when for decades we all were told that fat was the bad guy?” asks this week’s house call. “What are its benefits? Are there any downsides to eating more fat?”

Whether you are sick, well, overweight, metabolically compromised, experiencing brain issues, or just want to preserve your mental wellbeing, understand that the Glycemic Index plays a pivotal role. Choose foods with a lower GI while making sure they are gluten-free. This will maintain healthy levels of blood sugar and insulin. These are the keys to enhancing general health as well as brain health and function.
Happy New Year to all my fellow ADHD friends. Remember, you DO NOT have a disorder. I hate that. You have a very unique temperament and many gifts. The major problem is that this temperament is created in the prefrontal cortex of your brain. That controls “executive functioning”.. that means mainly the things you hate to do you probably won’t, because you have to have stimulation to make your brain increase dopamine, which drives us. So….when possible, delegate out the things that need to be done, but you hate to do and always procrastinate. Learning to compensate for our areas we lack interest in (or feel inadequate about, for that matter) is a SMART thing to do. Some people get down on themselves because of this.
Instead of being bummed about the things you don’t do, concentrate on your strengths. Embrace what you are good at and do it! Most people with ADHD are creative, likely to be entrepreneurs, innovators, challengers of the system, and passionate with their interests, whatever they are!
If you don’t have a person that is your own “personal secretary”, BARTER out your boring stuff!
Some of the people I love most dearly in the world have ADHD….So Happy New Year to all of you!!!!!!!
