Episode 9: When You Think Intuitive Eating Isn't for You

When You Think Intuitive Eating Isn’t for You

I was inspired to record this episode after a family member of mine expressed interest in listening to my podcast but she said, "Intuitive eating could never work for me."

In this episode, I talk about signs you may be ready to end your relationship with disordered eating, chronic dieting, and start exploring the world or intuitive eating. 

Many think intuitive eating "seems like a nice idea" but then say "that won't work for me." Intuitive eating is not simply a license to eat whatever you want, whenever you want, and you are automatically expected to be able to avoid binges. There is so much more to it. It is a process.

I relate the intuitive eating process to recovering from an eating disorder or tackling drug or alcohol addiction. You can't recover from any of these overnight and you also can't get a quick fix recovery from chronic dieting. 

Take a listen to how becoming an intuitive eater IS achievable. You don't need to live the rest of your life in the "on a diet", "off a diet" trap.
