Intuitive Eating: Difference And The 10 Principles

Intuitive Eating: Difference And The 10 Principles

Intuitive eating is a non-diet approach to health and wellness that helps us tune into our body signals, break the cycle of chronic dieting and heal our relationship with food.

  • Intuitive eaters give themselves unconditional permission to eat whatever they want without feeling guilty.

Intuitive Eating is made up of ten core principles:

  1. Reject the diet mentality
  2. Honor our hunger
  3. Make peace with food
  4. Challenge the food police
  5. Respect our fullness
  6. Discover the satisfaction factor
  7. Honor our feelings without using food
  8. Respect our body
  9. Exercise—feel the difference
  10. Honor our health with gentle nutrition

Diet Mentality

Diet Mentality

  • Diet mentality is a false belief that diets for weight loss create health and happiness.
  • Diet mentality is the mean voice we hear over and over which categorizes food into good and bad or healthy and unhealthy.

It is the voice that tells us ridiculous rules such as “no eating after 7pm”, “no carbs after lunch”, or “no dessert because we didn’t exercise”.

Many people think this voice means they should have more control. Rather, this voice acts like a bully that keeps us from living our fullest life.

Start Practicing Reject The Diet Mentality

  • Step 1: Recognize and Acknowledge the Damage that Dieting Causes
  • Step 2: Be Aware of Diet Mentality Traits and Thinking
  • Step 3: Get Rid of the Dieter’s Tools
  • Step 4: Be Compassionate Towards Ourselves

Biologically and psychologically, diets are set up to fail. But unlike diets, Intuitive Eating empowers us to become our own expert on what, how much and when to eat.

So be kind and compassionate towards ourselves and others as we start to reject the diet mentality.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
