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.

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.
