The research also show that intuitive eaters naturally balance their energy intake and tend to have lower body weight-without dieting and restriction. You might be wondering what is intuitive eating. Well, here's a definition for you: intuitive eating is a nutritional approach that teaches you how to create a healthy relationship with your food, mind and body rather than keeping track of the amounts of energy and fats in foods. Intuitive eaters have positive relaxed and flexible attitudes towards eating. They trust internal hunger cues and enjoy a variety of foods -both healthy and purely indulgent choices.
Here's some tips on how you can become an intuitive eater:
- Listen to your body's hunger cues. Eat when you are hungry, not when you're bored or tempted by the sight and smell of food
- Eat only until you're satisfied and not full
- Give up any unrealistic or rigid food rules
- Enjoy your food choices without guilt
