Fellow Adderall users, I am curious as to the eating habits of others on this med. I hate eating on it. It makes food taste bland or dry. I'll chew the same bite for minutes before forcing myself to swallow or taking a drink to wash it down. I'm currently eating soup, which I've made four times this week! Granted it is homemade and delicious but there has to be more I can eat than soup! Just curious as to what ya'll enjoy.

One helpful tip is eat something really good for breakfast, before your first dose has kicked in.

Just some advice- if you DON'T eat a decent amount of protein every day and PLENTY of fluids you will start to develop terribly painful headaches- Adderall removes the "hungry signal" but your brain knows it is starving......I'd suggest lots of water and protein, try leafy vegetables- fresh and crisp if possible, it's a nice texture for me anyway. And apples.......ohhh the apples......yessssss

I eat the same food every day.

But I like it that way.

What about smoothies or protein shakes?

Same here. My medication does not change what I eat but maybe just makes me crave junk food a bit more...

I do love smoothies(Bella). But I had forgotten that. I should really make a list on my whiteboard and put it on my counter. And eating in the morning does help a lot.(Dvd) Also I am no stranger to the headaches and starving game (Trev). This is something I've been struggling with for almost 8 years now. I wish I had known sooner there is a place like this to get such understanding help. Thank you all for the great advice!

Salad goes down easy.

+1 for more water, helps with that dry mouth thirsty feel.

I eat normal on it but I also crave more junk foods.

Try eating right after you take your pills before they kick on.
Are you on xr or ir?

Protein shakes can be your best friend. Blended with some ice they taste like milkshakes.

Taking an SSRI like Zoloft, Lexapro, Prozac helps with appetite if you don't mind adding a medication.

on my adderall I don't want to eat during the day but I know I HAVE to & my stomach feeling hungry is annoying so I eat whatever is quick. I gulp down a scrambled egg, cup of yogurt or applesauce- and lately I've been just binging on special k protien shakes lol.
When the addy wears off I actually crave food then its a diff story.
