Are you tired of following a diet plan? Let your body play the expert. Trusting your inner body's wisdom and signals gives you control of your diet choices. This is called intuitive eating.
It is the opposite of traditional dieting since it doesn't impose any guidelines on what to avoid and eat. The thought process behind intuitive eating is that you should eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full. For this to work, you may need to learn to trust your body and distinguish between physical and emotional hunger. Physical hunger is your biological call to replenish the nutrients, such as growling in your stomach. While emotional hunger is driven by emotional needs like boredom, sadness. Research has also linked intuitive eating to lower BMI, healthier psychological attitudes, and weight maintenance.
To start this practice, approach eating without judgment and become more aware of how and when you eat. Happy intuitive eating!
