Intuitive Eating 101

In today's podcast episode, I talk about something that I get tons of questions on: INTUITIVE EATING. A lot of my followers ask me how I "cured" my relationship with food. What do you eat? How much do you eat? How did you go from an unhealthy relationship with food to intuitive eating? 

I share my experience with intuitive eating as well as some tools that have worked for me in terms of staying accountable to this "system". 

If food thoughts consume you or if you are always eager to try the next diet, the content of this show may be useful to you!

“Our work is not to change what you do, but to witness what you do with enough awareness, enough curiosity, enough tenderness that the lies and old decisions upon which the compulsion is based become apparent and fall away. When you no longer believe that eating will save your life when you feel exhausted or overwhelmed or lonely, you will stop. When you believe in yourself more than you believe in food, you will stop using food as if it were your only chance at not falling apart. When the shape of your body no longer matches the shape of your beliefs, the weight disappears." Women And Food And God
