What is Intuitive Eating?

Intuitive Eating  (IE)  is simply getting us back to the food instincts we once knew. Currently, there are approximately 125 research studies showing its benefits. Intuitive Eating consists of 10 principles, which were developed by Evelyn Tribole, RD and Elyse Resch, RD. Some principles help us connect with the physical sensations of our body, while other principles help us reject the diet mentality and break free from diet culture.

 

What training did you complete to become a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor?

I completed supervision/coaching sessions with one of the Original Intuitive Eating Pros, Evelyn Tribole, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S. Additionally, I completed the Intuitive Eating PRO Teleseminar Training, and I completed and passed the Intuitive Eating course and exams.

Can we work together even if I have doubts about Intuitive Eating?

Absolutely! Changing the way we think about food can be tough. As long as you are willing to consider approaching food in a new way, I'm happy to meet you where you are!

 

Can I lose weight with Intuitive Eating?

Intuitive eating helps you heal your relationship with food, and it's not intended to help you lose weight. With that said, some individuals may lose weight when they learn to honor their bodies, while others may gain if their weight has been suppressed through dieting and restrictive eating. And some people may maintain their weight with Intuitive Eating.
