    1. I never really thought about it, but now it has me thinking about my daughter and ADHD and food too. Found out about the Feingold Diet and how it helps ADHD kids. That’s my next experiment! Hope that one works even better! Thanks Kendall!

    1. The mood and energy ratings are on a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being best. The food/mood percentages are figured by taking the total number of “good mood foods” eaten in one day devided by the total number of foods eaten for the day. You are supposed to try for 75% “good mood foods” each day. So far I have found that when the percentage of “good mood foods” goes down, so does my mood and energy level. Hmmm.
