What is Intuitive Eating?
Eating healthy is a mantra that many of us try to live. Yet, often we claim there are obstacles in our way. Time, stress, convenience are just a few reasons.
The theory behind intuitive eating is to approach healthy eating with full consciousness of your mind and body. Becoming attuned to our body's natural hunger signals will help us make wiser food decisions.
Next Thursday, March 26th, nutrition counselor, Anne Wilfong, RDN, LD, will give a presentation on the 10 guiding principles behind intuitive eating. These include:
- Reject the Diet Mentality
