If you’ve ever tried to lose weight by restricting foods and by trying to follow strict diets, you know firsthand that DIETS DON’T WORK. Not only are they impossible to stick to long term but you find yourself with a stronger food craving than when you started. It is time to try a different approach; an approach that will give you the tools for lifelong success…the Intuitive Eating approach.
Intuitive eating will help you create a healthy relationship with food, mind, and body. You will learn how to distinguish between physical and emotional hunger and focus on recognizing and responding to your inner body cues which may be disguised by emotional factors and years of dieting and food myths. Intuitive eating is a process of making peace with food so you no longer have to worry about eating a “bad” or “fattening” food.
The THREE CORE CHARACTERISTICS of INTUITIVE EATING are:
- Unconditional permission to eat when hungry and what food is desired
- Eating for physical rather than emotional reasons
- Reliance on internal hunger and satiety cues to determine when and how much to eat
The 10 PRINCIPLES of INTUITIVE EATING are:
- Reject the Diet Mentality
- Honor your Hunger
- Make Peace with Food
- Challenge the Food Police
- Respect Your Fullness
- Discover the Satisfaction Factor
- Honor Your Feelings Without Using Food
- Respect Your Body
- Exercise-Feel the Difference
- Honor Your Health-Gentle Nutrition
Research has shown that intuitive eaters have a better self-esteem, eat a variety of foods, are optimistic, and have healthier body weights.
