    • Nutrition

Research shows that 75% of our eating habits are emotionally driven (Cleveland Clinic, 2021).

My guest today is Kiki Athanas, who helps people conquer emotional eating and practice healthy, balanced eating with consistency and ease - even in the face of life’s challenges. She created The Gut Brain Integration method to help people take control of their cravings and hunger, so eating no longer feels like an internal battle. She makes being healthy fun & doable.

Our body craves variety and one way to tap into that is with the concept of intuitive eating. Intuitive eating is honoring the body’s innate boundaries, and there are two keys: hunger and taste. Intuitive eating is always respecting hunger and always respecting taste. Studies have found that intuitive eating has positive outcomes in comparison to restrictive dieting plans.

The body craves variety, a variety of nutrient-dense, whole foods - biodiversity is key. Tune in to learn more about ways to support your body through intuitive eating.
