Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), also known as Attention Deficit Hypersensitivity Disorder (ADHD), is a disease found in 5-6 percent of kids worldwide, whereas the number lowers a bit in adults. While the common cause for ADD/ADHD is the insufficient amount of dopamine produced in the brain’s prefrontal lobe, it causes a person with ADD to suffer in paying attention, weight balancing, and impulsivity a few. But what is the connection of a person’s weight with ADHD? The answer is very simple. The doctors who deal with ADD treatment, suggest that a person whose mind lacks dopamine seeks it through instant effectiveness, and food is what almost everyone finds nearest to them. This not only makes it difficult to lose weight, but a person keeps giving himself away with his impulsivity more and more, which in other words: makes the disease more complex.
However, losing or balancing weight is hard for almost everyone, and it’s not just limited to people dealing with chronic mental health issues.
This article shares the common mistakes people make, including their dependence on food to relieve stress while not being able to function exclusively on a routine or a diet plan.

The For-Granted Consistency
When you realize summers are around the corner, you want to have a nice body, but you keep forgetting you’re on a diet or giving yourself too many cheat days or the ‘prize’ for your diet. Being inconsistent in eating the same kind of food, or eating one meal at 8 pm after starving yourself the whole day makes you gain weight regardless of all the fasting.
The Overlooked Breaks
People generally have a hard time understanding that consistency is a good thing, especially if they have a history of ADD/ADHD that consistency is a good thing, but taking timely breaks in a workout is even better. When a person deals with impulsivity, he gives himself an unnecessarily hard time and ignores the importance of taking a break. When you overburden yourself with gyming, chances are your body is going to collapse all the way. Instead, talk to a proper nutritionist; eat good food, and exercise in good hours.
When we are talking about giving oneself a hard time or doing self-harm in other words. One very important mistake people do while observing weight loss is that they decide about going on a diet at 1 am, expecting the body to follow the plan while feeding it all kinds of fast food and desserts in the whole week. Of course, you’re going to crave like crazy if you instantly cut out the items you have been binging on. Give yourself time, and take it easy and gradually. The more you cut out, you’ll somehow end up eating that specific junk in a dozen, which makes the situation of your weight even worse.
The Self Bash
If you have ever been hypersensitive about yourself or how you look, you know how it goes. You hate seeing yourself in the mirror or have developed low self-esteem. But that doesn’t stop here when a sensitive person plans on dieting; he already is hating his body, which is the biggest mistake about the whole process. When you aren’t happy about whatever weight you have, you’re going to be super prepared with yourself and weight loss progress. While in fact, weight loss can take months and in the process, you’re going to lose it every day since you are ready to consider yourself a failure. So the point is, love the way you are. If you want to lose weight, it’s very good, but you shall not hate it. You’re equally worthy of the love right now, as well as you think what you’d receive in your slimmer summer version!
