Don't plan on it: A primary effect of Ritalin other than helping with ADD is appetite suppression, which fades after a period of tolerance builds up. The effect on your metabolism is minor and really doesn't effect how you burn off or absorb any particular nutrient. If you decide to believe it does it may effect how you eat and then some weight change.
