    Intuitive Eating: A Strategy To Re-Learn How to Eat & Disconnect From Diet Culture

    Intuitive Eating: A Strategy To Re-Learn How to Eat & Disconnect From Diet Culture

    The concept of intuitive eating is pretty simple, listen to your body, eat when you're hungry, stop when you're full and trust that your body intuitively knows what it needs.
    We all know that person who has no issue maintaining a healthy body weight, eats just enough but knows when to stop, and just seems to have a relaxed, healthy relationship with food. We all had that at some point in our lives, it might have been a very long time ago when we were children but it was there. Unfortunately as we've grown older, had rules and restrictions set around food, many of us have lost our inner intuitive eater.

Love this podcast!

Nicky,

I love the shortened format of the podcast! It keeps it doable during a busy life. Made me think about drinking less coffee and more chamomile tea or maybe running a personal best in a five km race.

Thanks!

Wilson
