Ready to Embrace Intuitive Eating?


- Advertisment -

With memes about quarantine fridge trips and more time at home to cook and snack, intuitive eating is having a moment. We use intuition every day to make decisions about work, love, and life, so why not use intuition when it comes to food too? 


The term “intuitive eating” was coined by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in 1995 in their book Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Program that Works. The book was aimed at helping chronic dieters form a peaceful relationship with food. “Intuitive eating is a dynamic interplay of instinct, emotion, and thoughts which gives us our inner wisdom to know how to eat,” said Elyse Resch. 

The 10 principles of Intuitive Eating

From Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Program that Works

1. Reject the diet mentality

Toss diet books that only provide short-term fixes to weight loss and stop believing the false hopes they inaccurately promise.

2. Honor your hunger

Consistently take in the energy and carbohydrates that your body biologically needs. Your body naturally knows what nutrients it needs to not only survive, but to thrive. Try eating every three to four hours and to figure out how much food you need to feel satisfied. The lines between physical and emotional hunger will become more clear.
