WHAT IS INTUITIVE EATING, AND HOW DOES IT WORK IN REAL LIFE?

It’s a proven method to help you get out of that “on again, off again” mindset.

Intuitive eating is simply listening to your body’s cues and letting them dictate when and how much you eat. 

I know it seems very simple – because it actually IS simple. 

But if you’re like a lot of people I know, there’s a good chance you never learned how to … or have forgotten how to listen to your body.

Most of us rely on our environment for our cues (when to eat, how much, and what kinds of food, etc.). 

That can lead you to constantly get caught up in whatever current “trendy diet” is hot right now. 

Eat fat, not cabs! Eat protein, not fat! Eat plants, not animals! Eat animals, not plants! 

It’s no wonder so many people are completely confused.  

When you rely solely on “what’s out there” for guidance, it leads to an endless cycle of guilt and disappointment. 

Intuitive eating simply means slowing down to LISTEN to your body – and then make decisions based on THAT. 

—> It means eating when you’re actually hungry, and stopping when you are comfortably full. 

—> It also means eating foods that help YOU feel energized and healthy vs. bloated and tired. 

As a result, no foods are “good” or “bad.”

Doesn’t that sound liberating?

But … if you’re not used to eating that way, it also can sound a little scary not to have specific guidelines.

It can be a relearning process – but it’s one that brings along a LOT of freedom!

Over time you learn what foods make you feel energized and which ones leave you feeling depleted – and how much food your body actually likes to eat before it feels too full!

So … how do you get started? 

Easy! Wait for your body to TELL you it’s hungry … and then enjoy your food, until your body tells you it’s full.

You’re eating when you’re physically HUNGRY …. not because you’re bored, stressed, thirsty, or because people around you are eating. 

Over the next couple of weeks, I’m going to share some nina tips to help you be successful tapping into YOUR body’s signals and intuitive eating. 

This could be COMPLETELY LIFE-CHANGING if you pay attention. 🙂
