S2 E5: To Eat Or Not To Eat: Intuitive Eating, Part I

October 11, 2019

Heidi and Shar discuss the principles from a book called Intuitive Eating. This book is authored by two dieticians, Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch, who encourage us to leave diets behind and embrace a healthy relationship with food. This is ​not ​about weight loss. This is ​not ​about restricting calories. This is ​not​ about eating some foods and leaving others behind. It ​IS​ about self-acceptance, fighting against diet culture and actually enjoying food you eat. (Cue Gasp!) YOU. DO. YOU.
