What is Intuitive Eating?

Intuitive Eating is a philosophy that promotes a healthy relationship between food and your body. Unlike traditional diets that are based on external rules and restrictions, Intuitive Eating is all about listening to your body and honoring your internal cues for hunger, fullness, and satisfaction.

Mindset and Lifestyle

It's about giving yourself permission to eat the foods you enjoy, without guilt or shame, and trusting that your body will guide you toward what you need to feel your best.

Intuitive Eating is not a diet or a weight loss program - it's a way of life that emphasizes self-care, mindfulness, and pleasure in eating.

How Does Intuitive Eating Work?

Intuitive Eating is based on ten principles that guide you toward a more mindful and intuitive approach to eating. One of the key elements of Intuitive Eating is giving yourself unconditional permission to eat - this means letting go of food rules and trusting your body to make choices based on your internal cues and preferences.

Trusting Your Body

It can be a scary concept, especially if you've spent years following strict diets and meal plans, but it's also incredibly liberating. When you give yourself unconditional permission to eat, you take the power away from food and give it back to yourself. You learn to trust your body and develop a more positive and compassionate relationship with food.

The Science Behind Intuitive Eating

The principles of Intuitive Eating are rooted in the idea that we can trust our bodies to tell us what they need, just like any other mammal in nature. By making a conscious choice to listen to your hunger and fullness cues, you honor your body's innate wisdom and learn to do what's best for your unique needs.

How Does Intuitive Eating Differ From Traditional Diets?


In a world that's obsessed with diets and weight loss, Intuitive Eating offers a refreshing and empowering alternative. Unlike traditional diets that promote strict food rules, calorie counting, and the pursuit of a certain body shape, Intuitive Eating takes a non-diet approach to health and wellness. It recognizes that diet culture is harmful and unsustainable, and encourages us to tune in to our bodies and find joy and satisfaction in eating.

Intuitive Eating encourages you to reject the diet mentality, honor your hunger and fullness, make peace with food, and discover the satisfaction factor in eating - all of which can lead to a more positive and sustainable relationship with food and our bodies.

If you're tired of restrictive diets and other fad diets, Intuitive Eating is something you should consider. With the help of our Intuitive Eating Guide, you can learn how to practice this approach to food and find balance in your life.

The Importance of Having a Positive Relationship With Food

Our relationship with food goes beyond just fueling our bodies...

...it's also tied to our emotions, social connections, and cultural identities. Unfortunately, diet culture tells us that we should only eat certain foods and in certain amounts, which can lead to feelings of guilt, shame, and anxiety around food. This can also lead to a negative cycle of emotional eating and restriction, further damaging our relationship with food.

Intuitive Eating recognizes the importance of having a positive relationship with food and encourages us to tune in to our bodies, honor our hunger and fullness, and make peace with all foods. By doing so, we can break free from the negative emotions that are often associated with food and develop a more joyful and satisfying way of eating.

Intuitive Eating Benefits


If you develop a healthy relationship with food, it becomes easier to make mindful choices that are driven by nourishment rather than deprivation. This can lead to improved overall health and well-being, as well as an increased sense of joy and satisfaction when you eat.


Improved Relationship with Food and Your Body


Intuitive Eating encourages you to listen to your body. This can lead to reduced feelings of guilt or shame around food, and a greater sense of satisfaction and pleasure from eating. You will feel more connected to your body, and support self-acceptance and body appreciation.


Increased Trust in Hunger and Fullness Cues


By paying attention to how your body feels before, during, and after eating, you can learn to recognize your unique patterns of hunger and fullness and respond accordingly. This can help you feel more confident in your ability to provide your body with enough food.


Improved Body Image and Self-Esteem


By rejecting the idea that your worth is tied to your body size or shape, and instead learning to accept and appreciate your body as it is, you can develop a more positive and compassionate relationship with yourself. Instead of focusing on appearance or trying to change your body shape, you'll learn to focus on the way you feel in your body.


Improved Physical and Mental Health


Intuitive Eating has been associated with a number of positive health outcomes, including improved blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and insulin sensitivity. 

By focusing on nourishing your body with foods that make you feel good and engaging in joyful movement, rather than strict rules or punishing exercise regimens, you can improve your overall health.


Improved Mood and Emotional Well-Being


At its core, Intuitive Eating is about more than just eating - it's a holistic approach to wellness that acknowledges the connection between physical and emotional health. By forming a deeper understanding of yourself and your relationship with food, you cultivate self-compassion, which can lead to greater emotional and psychological well-being.


Improved Physical and Athletic Performance


By tuning into your body's hunger and fullness cues, you can ensure that you are fueling yourself appropriately for your workouts and recovery needs. Intuitive Eating can also help you gain a better understanding of how different types of food affect your energy levels, allowing you to make more informed choices about the foods that will optimize your athletic performance.


Reduced Risk of Developing Eating Disorders


Intuitive Eating can help reduce the risk of developing disordered eating behaviors, such as stress eating, binge eating, and emotional eating. By learning to listen to their body, individuals practicing intuitive eating are less likely to engage in restrictive or excessive eating behaviors that can lead to disordered eating patterns.


More Conscious Weight Control


By listening to your body, you can eat the amount of food that feels satisfying without feeling the need to restrict or overeat. This can lead to a more stable and sustainable weight. When you allow yourself to eat all foods in moderation, you can truly savor and enjoy your meals and the way food tastes, rather than feeling deprived or guilty about what you eat.


More Sustainable Approach to Nutrition and Health


Instead of restricting certain foods or following strict rules, you can learn to eat intuitively and listen to your body's needs. This can lead to a more balanced and varied diet, as you are able to choose foods that you truly enjoy and that nourish your own body. By making peace with food and eating intuitively, individuals can create a sustainable and enjoyable approach to nutrition and health.

Common Myths About Intuitive Eating

Intuitive eating has gained popularity in recent years, but some myths surrounding this eating style still persist.

Here are a few of the most common myths about intuitive eating and why they’re inaccurate.

It's the Same as Binge-Eating

Myth 1

Binge-eating disorder (BED) involves episodes of eating large amounts of food in a short amount of time, generally without feeling in control of the behavior. Intuitive eating is about listening to your body and responding to its needs in a mindful way, rather than engaging in out-of-control eating behaviors.

It Is Only for Weight Loss

Myth 2

The truth is that intuitive eating can be beneficial for any body size. Intuitive eating isn’t focused on weight loss - it’s actually focused on finding and maintaining a sense of balance in your life. It teaches you to look at food differently – as nourishment instead of something that needs to be avoided or restricted.

An Excuse to Eat Junk Food

Myth 3

Intuitive eating is about paying attention to the pleasure of food, rather than labeling foods as “good” or “bad”, it doesn't mean you should ignore the nutritional value and health benefits. There are lots of healthy alternatives that can provide your body with the nutrients it needs while still satisfying your cravings.

It Is Not Sustainable in the Long Run

Myth 4

While it's true that changing habits takes effort and discipline, over time, once you've trained your brain to pay attention to hunger cues and distinguish between physical and emotional cravings, intuitive eating becomes an easier lifestyle choice.
