More on intuitive eating

Monday, October 21, 2019

I’m reading an article on intuitive eating in “Health” magazine. The author Alex van Buren makes some good points that I wanted to list here for future reference-

emoticon 1. Trust your body’s signals - honor your hunger ( not excessively but give your body what it needs when it sends you the signal). emoticon

emoticon 2. Reject the diet mentality and embrace eating for fuel and with pleasure. emoticon

emoticon 3. Make peace with food - give yourself unconditional permission to eat so you don’t fall into the deprivation-craving-binging cycle. emoticon

emoticon 4. Focus on healthy foods but don’t eliminate entire food groups for no medical reason (remove the deprivation, bad food good food mentality). emoticon

emoticon 5. Respect your body when it’s full. Don’t just keep eating because it’s tempting or because you feel obliged to finish everything on your plate. emoticon

emoticon 6. Eat in a lovely environment. Use your good plates emoticon . Enjoy your meals. emoticon

emoticon 7. Honor your feelings without using food. emoticon

emoticon 8. Respect your body. Don’t beat yourself self up for what you didn’t do - instead give yourself credit for what you did accomplish. emoticon

emoticon 9. Add in exercise you enjoy so you begin to enjoy movement and feel uplifted every time you work out. emoticon

emoticon 10. Honor your health. Go for meals that make you feel the most nourished and strong and that you enjoy. emoticon
