Have you ever heard the phrase “intuitive eating” ? If not, listen up, because it’s life-altering.
Intuitive eating proposes breaking free from the on-and-off cycle of dieting and learning to eat mindfully and without guilt. There’s no calorie counting or restrictions on certain foods — alternately, you learn to make peace with food and use it for nourishment instead of comfort.
At its core, intuitive eating is learning to tap into your intuition and honor your body.
- Eat nourishing foods when you feel hungry without overdoing it.
- Learn how to feel satisfaction from other areas of your life, without using food for comfort, satisfaction or a feeling of belonging.
- Learn to respect your body for all it does for you, and you’ll naturally become more gentle and mindful with your choices.
It’s quite radically different than the yo-yo dieting our society is used to, but learning to eat intuitively is a lifestyle that will carry you through your years with ease.
