Our original interview was released in 2016 and replaced with this update.
In the third episode of our Body Kindness for Beginners podcast series “Learn and Grow” Bernie and I reflect on ways in which the practice of intuitive eating has helped him reject dieting and we discover new growth opportunities going forward. Tune in if you’ve ever felt confused about what the heck intuitive eating is and why it may be exactly what you need in your life. (Hint, the goal is to heal your relationship to food, not lose weight)
So what is intuitive eating? It’s not a diet. It’s a way to reconnect with your body and listen to its signals, so you can meet your body’s needs. It’s not a quick fix – it’s a beautiful practice that you can learn and use for the rest of your life.
