The 10 Principles of Intuitive Eating
Intuitive eating is researched and evidence based - a way to reclaim your relationship with food.
“Intuitive Eating” (book by Evelyn Tribole & Elyse Resch): IE aims to reconnect us to instinct and intuition. Intuitive Eating aims to get you back in touch with your body's own signals.
The Book proposes 10 principles to guide you:
Reject the Diet Mentality
Honor Your Hunger.
Make Peace with Food
Challenge the Food Police
Respect Your Fullness
Discover the Satisfaction Factor
Honor Your Feelings Without Using Food
Respect Your Body
Exercise–Feel the Difference
Honor Your Health
You can have intuitive eating down intellectually, but it’s about embodiment. It’s a *journey* of reconnection to self. It’s about food, yes, but the big picture is also embodiment of emotion. The big picture is about interoceptive awareness - which means mindfulness and connection to your internal sensations and processes. Once you have empowerment with food and trust your judgment again, it ripple affects your whole paradigm. My goal on Instagram is often sharing the basics of intuitive eating, like pointing out that diet culture is a thing. In the feel deal heal pack, my online courses, & therapy we get to the digging and nuance of understanding the PROCESS.
You can read the book and have an opinion, but the REAL DEAL is through the lived experience of reclaiming YOUR POWER and not needed diet cults, celebrities, rigid programs, or shame to tell you your worth. You’re so much more.
Therapy and tacos for all,
