  1. My daughter has struggled with ADD since she started school. (She's in 4th grade now) We started the WFGF diet about 6 months ago - and she is doing DRAMATICALLY better this year. Her report card last week was mostly A's and B's! This is a kid that we have considered holding back every year since Kindergarten. The school and pediatricians have been pushing medication - but I was determined not to go there. My daughter is a completely different kid now. She's more cooperative, there aren't 3 hour homework battles any more, she happily participates in class, she wakes up easier in the morning, she's nicer to her sisters and to me! I have met several other moms who have had similar results with their children. One in particular whoose son had a severe case of ADHD - and going WFGF completely turned him around. I would suggest that you give it a try! The results are slow at first - it took about a month before we saw a real difference, and the effect was cumulative - I have heard that it takes 6 months to get it completely out of your system. That definitely seemed to be true with us. Good Luck! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
