The co-creator of Intuitive Eating, Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD wants people to understand that dieting is associated with weight gain, the opposite of it’s promised intention.
On this podcast, we chat about how we use intuitive eating as a model for being the expert on your body when it comes to nourishment. We swap client stories of struggles and how we have helped them overcome their challenges. We dig into the research a bit to show the positive, life-enhancing benefits of ditching diets for intuitive eating.
We also touch on diet culture and body oppression, especially of fat bodies that get “concern trolled” so often by society…. “Oh, you really DO need to lose weight…. for health.”
Nope. We believe intuitive eating is for every body.
Tune in and take action on your freedom from diets.
