Finding Freedom with Food

Aug 16 2023 • 22 mins

Many critics of Intuitive Eating express concern that encouraging people to listen to their body encourages them to eat with reckless abandon and nutrition goes out the window. That couldn't be further from the truth.

It’s actually quite the opposite. Intuitive Eating encourages you to eat a wide variety of foods and adopt health-promoting habits that are rooted in self-care, and in a way that's actually sustainable. Studies have shown that Intuitive Eating is associated with improved nutrition intake, eating a wider variety of foods, and reduced eating disorder and disordered eating symptoms.

In this episode, I’m breaking down what principle # 10 – Honoring Your Health with Gentle Nutrition – is all about, what it looks like when you make gentle nutrition food choices and how you can begin incorporating gentle nutrition into your eating routine.
