Intuitive eating

Intuitive eating involves coming to peace with your body’s needs, letting go of the guilt associated with eating and ending the struggle of rules.

The end result of intuitive eating has nothing to do with your weight.

What Is Intuitive Eating? Ditch Your Diet And Eat For Wellness, Instead

forbes.com

With mindful eating, there is no explicit rejection of dieting. 

Intuitive eating rejects the diet mentality altogether—that’s the biggest difference.

Principles of intuitive eating
  • Honor your hunger. Reject the diet mentality, make peace with food and challenge the food police.
  • The act of eating. Respect your fullness, and discover the food delight factor.
  • The emotion of eating. Honor your feelings without using food, and respect your body.
  • Exercise—feel the difference.
  • Honor your health.

When you are in touch with your body’s needs and desires, you honor those without judgment and start to see the ridiculousness of trying to get smaller at all costs.

Eating or not eating certain foods doesn’t make us good or bad people, according to the philosophy of intuitive eating. 

The number on the scale doesn’t make us good or bad people—it’s just a number. It’s so much easier to come to these realizations when you aren’t worrying about every bite you put in your mouth.
