MINDFUL INTUITIVE EATING
Mindful or intuitive eating is a nutritional approach that rejects the dieting mentality and instead allows us to improve the complicated relationship we may have with food and our bodies. Adopting the principles of conscious or intuitive eating means learning to recognize and listen to the signals our body sends us about hunger and satiety. We’ve always had those signals but often have lost sight of them because of external signals, such as the time of day and an empty plate.
Mindful, intuitive eating is also about putting the satisfaction and pleasure of eating back at the heart of our diet rather than being in constant “restriction” mode. Foods are not considered good or bad, and this allows us to put guilt aside and instead choose foods that will meet our needs and those of our bodies.
In fact, mindful or intuitive eating is not a weight loss technique; rather, it allows us to stop yo-yo dieting and reach our natural weight.
