At the risk of sounding preachy, I've noticed good results when I combine these healthy lifestyles with my ADD meds.

I've noticed the same thing. Vigorous exercise, like running and swimming, really help me a lot. I run or swim 6 days a week for an hour or so, and I've been able to decrease my stimulant usage by 40%. I don't know if reducing refined sugar really helps with adhd, but it makes me feel better in general. As far as sleep is concerned, I get 8-9 hours a night, and I feel good the next day.
