Stop Losing the Food Fight!

Group for Adult ADHD Women Struggling with Disordered Eating

Registration has closed for this group. If you are interested in future sessions, please complete the form on this page and we will add you to our interested list!

Stop Losing the Food Fight is a group that will offer an ADHD-friendly approach to developing healthier eating habits and get away from the disordered eating patterns so common among people with ADHD.

We will look at eating issues through an ADHD lens, including:

  • How ADHD impacts eating habits
  • Stimulant medication, appetite suppression and hunger cues
  • ADHD-friendly ways to build healthy eating habits
  • Getting away from all-or-nothing thinking about healthy eating
  • Healthy eating when you don’t like to plan meals or cook
  • Healthy eating challenges when you live alone 
  • "Mindless eating" in response to the need to fidget 
  • Bingeing and Night Eating
  • When Boredom or Frustration trigger eating
  • Setting reasonable goals for long-term habit change 

In this group you will feel supported and understood and will help each other find ADHD-friendly solutions that work. This will be a small, closed group. We ask everyone that joins us to commit to 8 sessions.

This group is not meant as an eating disorders treatment program for those with diagnosed anorexia or bulimia.
