Although initially I was a little skeptical of intuitive eating, interestingly facing this discomfort face on was the key to healing my relationship with food and body
Reflecting on the question “Why can’t I trust my body to tell me what to eat?” really does open up a can of worms but allowed me to face the elephant in the room and to be honest it brought truth to the surface that my ‘disordered eating behaviors in my late teens was never truly healed.
Although I thought I “healed myself” it was really like a weed with deep under the surface roots. You can keep running it over with a lawn mower but without pulling it out by the roots it will just keep re sprouting and it may take different forms, and for me this showed up in my relationship with exercise.

In this episode we dive deep into what is Intuitive Eating, how was in founded, who is it for and what does the research show us about its benefits. We also discuss how the Intuitive Eating and the principles are applied to eating disorders.
