Do any of the following questions resonate with you?
- Do you deprive yourself of food giving your body little to no sustenance to function normally?
- Do you restrict yourself of certain foods that you find yourself over-indulging in anyway?
- Do you feel guilty when you do indulge in your delicious pleasures?
If so, me too! in fact I have been guilty of all three throughout my life until of course my relationship with food improved.
Did you know our bodies give us signals all of the time beyond the obvious indicators of hunger and fullness. When we are receptive to these signs is where we can tune into the wisdom of our inner body to make choices around what, how much and when to eat food without judgement. Intuitive eating is a anti-diet approach to your health and wellness whereby you learn to trust your intuitive body, in turn improving your relationship with food and how you feel every day.
The podcast below gives a great overview on the topic and what intuitive eating can do for you.
