What a great idea! Book discussions, not just your book but the ADD books as well.
Can you give me an idea of what thermodynamics is? I hope it isn’t a Atkins diet clone. Never paid much attention to the food pyramid, it never seemed right to me and its always behind the times. When I was a kid the food pyeramid was a receipe for a heart attack. I don’t even remember what it looks like now.
The best diet advice I ever got was the Pritikin diet. I tried it when it first came out. I managed to stay on it for 8 weeks and felt wonderful. If I had known about my ADD then I might have stayed on it forever. I never felt hungry or deprived and never had to count calories. I’m trying to get back on it now. It should be easier now that I know about my ADD. I remember the clarity of mind I had on that diet. Unfortunatly, that was nearly 40 years ago. I wonder if it would work for anyone that has ADD. I could focus without caffeine. I could remember things. I had energy that I want back.
If anyone is interested their website is http://www.pritikin.com. It gives you the whole plan without even having to log in. It is a simple diet, simple is good for ADDers. The way I remember it from the original book was no salt, no sugar, no fats or oils, no caffeine and no chocolate. The site gives you how many servings of different kinds of foods but I still remember the basic stuff that the original book said. Has anyone else tried this diet?REPORT ABUSE
