Dieting is unethical. But how do you approach eating if you never want to diet again? By now you probably heard of intuitive eating, but do you see yourself eating intuitively and feeling happier about your relationship to food?
The co-creator of Intuitive Eating, Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD wants people to understand what intuitive eating is and is NOT. One big NOT… intuitive eating is not a diet or weight loss plan (though it has been co-opted as such “lose weight with intuitive eating!” (NOPE! Run far and fast from that if you see it advertised.)
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 everybody. Tune in and take action on your freedom from diets.
