In his article [Food for Though], Jamie Fellrath reported that his own personal journey with Paleo eating led to a significant reduction in ADHD symptoms. I too have much greater levels of focus, creativity, and mental clarity through exercise and diet, but switching to Paleo (Loren Cordain/Robb Wolf version) seriously took things to a whole new level.
Has anyone else experienced this effect?
Art DeVany talked a little about this in relation to carbohydrate restriction (restricting carbs signals the body to regenerate/recover in order to make it through times of scarcity rather than reproduce in times of abundant carbohydrate access), but I really noticed this more while eating fruits, some starchy vegetables (sweet potatoes primarily), and while consuming much more Omega-3 than Art, Sisson, or others like Dr. Harris recommend.
