To date, there are over 80 studies that highlight the benefits of intuitive eating on health outcomes. If you're new to Intuitive Eating, these principles are a great place to start. Remember that Intuitive Eating takes time to master. Work with a Registered Dietitian to help turn these Intuitive Eating principles into long-term�skills.� Say no to�fad diets and�rigid rules around eating. Keep your body fed with adequate calories. Don't ignore your hunger cues! Restriction often leads to overeating, so give yourself permission to eat all foods. Stop equating your worth to the "good" or "bad" food you ate today.� Tune in to your body's signals for fullness.�A�hunger scale can help you listen to your cues and avoid that over-stuffed feeling. Food is an experience meant to be nourishing, joyful and satisfying - if you let it be! Find ways to comfort without food. Try calling a friend or taking a relaxing bath. Learn to accept your body by remembering your worth does not increase as your size decreases. Exercise doesn't�only count when it is at the gym. A walk with your dog is a great�option. Anti-diet is not anti-health. Choose nutrient-dense foods most of the time while allowing for some indulgences without guilt.
