What does intuitive eating look like?
Updated: Aug 25, 2019
One of the big mindset shifts when you move from dieting to intuitive eating is realising that food is just food. Each decision about when, what and how much you eat is not a big deal. You are no longer concerned with making ‘perfect’ choices and you don’t beat yourself up all day if you eat something that didn’t feel great. Food is enjoyable but it’s not the most important thing in your life. I often talk to my clients about getting to a place that is similar to the way that children relate to food. They eat according to their hunger and fullness cues, they don’t have rules about food and bad foods and they will have a treat if it looks good without overthinking it. It takes work to get to this place but it is possible, regardless of your history with food. Your brain and body aren’t broken, you just need practice, patience and persistence.
