is pleased to announce our first virtual (online) event of 2012: The ADHD & Weight Management Seminar: How to Build Healthy Eating Habits that are ADHD-friendly. Register by January 3 to secure the early bird price of just $77!

Did you know that adults with ADHD are more likely to become obese, and even to develop an eating disorder like bulimia, binge eating, and morbid obesity? It makes sense, considering the fact that healthy eating habits require the use of executive functions such as time management, planning, decision-making, and impulsive control—some of the very skills that ADHDers are troubled by to begin with!

If you struggle with managing your weight and eating habits, then you’ve probably been struggling for a long time, unable to find the tools and resources that will work for you long term. I know what it’s like, too. I had everything under control for a couple of years—until I had a baby. And then boom! When my life structure changed, many of my poor eating habits returned. Chances are you know what I’m talking about, even if you’ve never had a baby.

It’s really not about will power. It is about having the right tools and strategies that work with your ADHD.

So I’m looking forward to this event as much as I know many of you are! Together, we’re going to learn from  prominent Psychologist and Clinical Instructor at Harvard Medical School, ADHD expert Dr. Roberto Olivardia. Over the course of two evenings, January 24-25, Dr. Olivardia will teach us everything from the science and studies behind ADHD and weight management to the practical, ADHD-friendly strategies and steps that you and I can take—right away—to start building healthy eating habits and take control of our weight.

And the best part is that you can join us from your own home or office! But don’t worry if you can’t attend live, because everyone who registers gets the presentation playback, downloadable audio recordings and presentation slides. So you can actually “attend” live or at any time you like after the event.

Take a look at the The ADHD & Weight Management Seminar: How to Build Healthy Eating Habits that are ADHD-friendly event page and, if you’d like to join us, then be sure to register before 11:59pm EST on January 3 to secure the early bird rate of $77. (That’s just $77 for 4 hours of structured information, audio recordings of the presentation, and presentation slides–which is way less than you’d pay for just 1 hour with a nutritionist or personal trainer!)

I’m excited. See ya there!
