What is Intuitive Eating?
Intuitive eating is a non-diet approach to wellness that helps you break the cycle of dieting, heal your relationship with food, and get back in touch with the intuitive eater inside of you. Intuitive eating is not a diet. It’s a way to learn to eat outside of the diet mentality, with a focus on using your own internal hunger, fullness, and satisfaction cues to guide eating choices. But it’s much more than just the ‘hunger-fullness diet’ – we will explore your food beliefs, behaviors, and self-talk while delving deep into what food means to you. We are born natural intuitive eaters.
I’ve tried so many diets. Will this work for me?
This is not a diet. Not only do diets not work – you’re either “on” them or “off” them, right? – they’re the root of many of your problems. 90 to 95 percent of diets fail, yet you blame yourself, not the diet. In reality, it’s the process of dieting that is the problem. Intuitive eating is different. It helps you break free from the cycle of dieting and learn to eat food normally again – finding balance and making peace with all foods.
Will I lose weight?
A desire for weight loss is normal - it's what we've been told we need to do to achieve health, acceptance, and desirability. But in reality, your weight is not a good indicator of your health and you are so much more than a number on the scale. Weight loss must be put on the back burner as you go through the Intuitive Eating process, otherwise it undermines your ability to really tune into your body. While it's important to make space to talk about your desire to change your weight, it's not how we will measure progress or results. Some people lose weight, some people gain weight, and some people stay the same. As you go through the Intuitive Eating process and heal your body from the diet mentality, your weight will eventually normalize to it's set point.
When do courses start and end?
Courses start now and never ends! Courses are completely self-paced - you decide when you start and when you finish.
I'm really busy, how will I find the time?
Life does not have a pause button. There’s never going to be a period time where things are suddenly easier. Often we fall victim to all-or-nothing thinking and if we can’t do it all the way, we don’t do anything. Intuitive eating is not about perfection – that’s the beauty of it! Whether you are a busy professional, a mom with non-stop days, or travel frequently, you can do this. You’ll learn how to make changes – and maintain them – in the midst of your normal, busy, life. What's great about this crash course is that you'll have access to it for a lifetime.
How long will I have access to the courses?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to the courses for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
