Anyone with ADHD and experience with eating disorders, how have they influenced eachother? I struggle a lot with binge eating, hating myself for it, impulsively starting long fasts and impulsively breaking them with more junk. I want out.

      Youd be right, im on ritalin. It makes me feel in control of my intake throughout the day but as soon as night falls im completely out of control, moreso than when im not on them at all.

      I struggle with binge eating as well, though I don’t suffer from ADHD. From what I know, ADHD meds reduce your appetite, but after the effect disappears you become even hungrier

      I would hyperfocus and forget to eat and then lack executive function required to eat/cook. So for me it was a lot of fasting then binging on fast food. Now I have pre-portioned meals/snacks that I can grab or heat up during the week. I schedule blocks of time in specifically to eat otherwise I won’t remember. I also schedule in a day when I make the pre portioned food but it’s the only big task I do that day (well that and clean up). It’s not perfect but it has helped me improve, I hope you are able to take something useful away from my experience as well
