With most of society being bombarded with diet messages, diet rules, do and don’t foods, eat this and not that, coupled with photoshopped IG pictures of unnatural physiques, etc. - an alternative approach is what is called intuitive eating. Intuitive eating is a philosophy that rejects traditional dieting and instead supports listening to your body’s own cues to decide what, when, and how much to eat. This approach was NOT designed specifically for weight loss but rather considers your mental, emotional, and physical health holistically. In this show, we’ll discuss the foundation of intuitive eating and the core 10 principles that guides one in this methodology. Intuitive eating rejects the traditional weight-loss diets that promote caloric restriction and/or deprivation and encourages an inner reflection on how hungry or how satisfied you are in a given moment, and use that information to guide what, when, and how much to eat. While the eating experience is also called “mindful eating,” intuitive eating encompasses a broader spectrum that includes physical activity, mental reflection and your ability to regain confidence in your own eating habits.
