Do you know that the regular, calorie rich diet your kid gets at home and outside could be the cause behind his ADHD? For most people, it is no secret that excessive junk food consumption cause weight gain, but few are aware of the fact that these foods could negatively affect the behavioural patterns of kids as well.

If your kid is not following a healthy diet, then he is likely to suffer from several behavioural disorders, including ADHD.

I don’t want to try and really give you medical advise as I am not a doctor but I think that before medicating it is a really good idea to think about your childs diet and if you can change it to alter symptoms.

Diet Changes to Reduce ADHD Symptoms?

ADHD CapsA recent study on a group of school children further confirmed this concept. All those children were made to eat only healthy foods for a given period of time; during this time they couldn’t have any junk foods.

Before the study began, some of these kids were overweight while others were suffering from ADHD are other related diseases.

Once the period of study was over, it was found out that very few kids were overweight, not to mention that most of them started exhibiting normal (not ADHD) behavior. As you can see, the type of food your kid eats affects more than just his body weight.

The Advantages of Eating Better for Kids

I am not saying that once your kid starts eating healthy and natural foods, he would be completely cured of ADHD or obesity, but it is surely a good first step in that direction. With that said here are some food tips which should be followed by your kids.

1. Don’t give them milk or cereals to eat at breakfast: Apart from the fact that most kids are lactose-intolerant and consequently unable to digest milk or foods prepared from milk, milk is also the cause of obesity. So far as cereals are concerned, they are rich in carbs and any expert would tell you how bad carbs are for someone who is looking forward to losing and staying slim.

A better option is to offer scrambled or boiled eggs to your kids for breakfast, as they are high on protein. Protein helps one burn fat as well as build muscles. You may also want to add salad to the mix, as salad is rich in fiber and would help keep your kids full for a long time. One big advantage of this is that your kids would be less inclined to gorge on the junk foods they notice outside.

2. Restrict the intake of candies and fizzy drinks of your kids: Both candies are fizzy drinks are high on sugar and consequently make one fat.

The school kids I told you about were able to stay away from junk drinks only because they always carried a bottle filled with plain water with them. You could adopt the same strategy for your kids as well.

3. Increase their intake of “good fats“: There are basically two types of the fats; the ‘bad fat’ which makes one over, and the ‘good fat’ which helps combat obesity.

Omega 3 fatty acid is a good example of “good fats” and it is available in plenty in fishes such as salmon, tuna, etc.

So although these tips may help your kids overall it is important to note really that the diet can not only affect a kids weight but also his or her behavior.

Smarties and More Deceptive Marketing

There is a real struggle in the candy and treat marketplace to make all of our familiar candy look and tasted the same but market it to be somehow not bad for you.

Sorry no such luck if they don’t change how they make it.

Today I was in the store and got some Smarties for my son. I know this is candy, I know this has no redeeming qualities as far as food goes, but he is 11 and likes Smarties. So I bought them.

How Many Calories in Those Smarties?

The interesting thing about the box is that it is 45 grams just like it has always been but it is broken into three portions that are 70 calories each. So I am supposed to eat just a third of the box when I ma looking for Smarties? Maybe eat 15 or so Smarties?

Well maybe not exactly. You can see along the side there that there are three words “Make” “Em” and “Last”. Well the box itself has been broken into three sections and each of these sections apparently just holds 70 calories worth of smarties.

So I am expected to eat just one section and put it away? Or are people really going to have three hits of guilt instead and eat the whole box like they did yesterday?

70 Calorie Smarties? 210 Calorie Smarties?

This whole idea of being able to visualize 100 calories, or 70 calories, or 300 calories has a really good idea at it’s core.

Maybe if you know that the box is 210 calories you will consciously decide whether you really want to eat these treats or not.

But the trouble that I have is that instead there is a little note telling you that it is only 70 calories. Nice try guys but totally deceptive in my book!

Sometimes I feel a bit down. Maybe down is the wrong word but instead it should be unmotivated. I just sit and surf, play clash of clans, formulate simple ideas that I might never fulfill.

But sometimes, more now than last month I feel the pull do make a change to more peoples lives. This blog to you seems like a bunch of information and articles but to me this is a vehicle to change peoples lives one at a time.

Everyone has a destiny. Some people do not see their destiny yet but hopefully that destiny will come to them soon.

Do you know your destiny?

I love this video. It has been out for a few month and was created by a fellow called Mateusz. There are a deries of them but this one called Destiny is my motivation today

Watch it! Only 3 minutes but it will rally up your mind and spirit and help you on your way today to finding or further fulfilling your destiny

How do I find My Destiny?

This is a question that I have wondered for a long time. I think that your destiny can not be seen just by looking forward but instead by looking back at the moments that stand out in your life.

We are all good at certain things and not good at others.

A destiny is not always, I believe, just to help other people or to change the world but is often just a way that we are all a bit of a stone that others can use to find their way as well. A footprint that leads a path for others.

Always try and make the world a better place. We hear that line a lot but is it the way we live?

I try to break down some of these “woohoo” type ideas into the practical and the real.

So to me I believe that this looking back at memories will show successes and strengths as well as failures and weaknesses.

Dont believe in luck, always move towards your destiny

Also see what makes you most passionate will lead you in your quest for your destiny.

So when you look at that intersection between your past success, your past and present strengths, and then overlay your passion on top of that you will find your destiny.

Your destiny is the thing that gets you out of bed with a spring in the morning. I know that some days I crawl slowly and with trepidation out of bed.

But other days when I am really excited about what I am creating I just can’t wait to get out of bed and start moving in the direction of my dreams and destiny where I can help others.

Destiny is to achieve starting today

I hope that today you can make some time to look back and see what you have always been good at and what you want to do in the future.

Remember that your destiny can be difficult to find but often it is obvious once you have found it.

Work always towards the fulfillment of your destiny. Live your life as if your destiny is the only thing that matters and you will find that you make much better decisions instead of having your life meander through the instruction and decisions dictated by others.

Do you know what your destiny is? Are you moving towards bringing that destiny to the world today?
