Make this the year to make peace with food and body

January 14, 2022

Many of us often start the new year with well-intentioned resolutions, often with weight loss topping the list. What if there was an approach to eating that allows you freedom with food  and the number on a scale isn’t how you measure progress? A mindset where there were no “good” or “bad” foods?  While this may sound like a new fad diet, it’s quite the contrary. In fact, call it the anti-diet. Intuitive Eating (IE) is a self-care approach that has been 25 years in the making and is now being more fully embraced by the mainstream for good reason. 

IE is an evidenced-based model that ties together mind and body via 10 principles. It’s a framework for eating that incorporates intuition, emotion, and logic and honors both physical and mental health needs. 

IE looks at food from an “all foods fit” approach, fosters awareness, and teaches you to relearn how to listen to internal cues to nourish and move your body without restriction and rigid rules. Instead of focusing on weight loss why not focus on attending to self-care and nurturing your body? Interested in learning more?
