Is Intuitive Eating Your Solution?

“Fear mongering, in the name of health, in front of the backdrop of an appearance-based culture, has triggered the perception that we are one bite way from a disaster. It’s a cultural neurosis; the fork has become akin to a loaded gun - just one wrong move pulls the trigger.⁣

“This creates a perpetual background of anxiety at the kitchen table and everywhere you eat: Eater beware - you are only one bite away from a heart attack or obesity.⁣

“It’s no wonder that people are driven to popular eating crazes, such as “clean eating” and fad dieting, all in the name of health. But this pursuit is creating more problems.⁣

🙁 “A substantial body of research shows that dieting is not sustainable and leads to a host of problems including eating disorders, food and body preoccupation, distraction from other personal health goals, reduced self-esteem, weight stigmatization, discrimination, and — paradoxically — weight gain.⁣

“As a result, many people don’t know how to eat anymore. They are ashamed of their bodies and don’t trust their bodies to “work.” The pleasure of eating has been stolen.⁣

“Intuitive Eating — a concept we (Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch) created in 1995, based on evaluating hundreds of studies, in addition to our own clinical experience — is the solution of this growing dilemma.” ⁣
