Why the Intuitive Eating Group?
I’m offering this group because I’m passionate about intuitive eating and want to help people make peace with food. I can still remember when I first heard about intuitive eating. Like many things I have come to love- including yoga and capri pants- I automatically dismissed it. I was scared and thought it couldn’t work for me. I was desperate for change with my eating, but the change I believed I needed was more self-control, structure, and rigidity. What I found out was that the more you try to gain control, the more you lose control. That’s where I entered that place of “I guess I’ll give this intuitive eating thing a shot…. I’m already miserable with my eating…what do I have to lose?” I couldn’t keep doing what I was doing, I didn’t want to go backwards, but the idea of intuitive eating sure did scare the pants off of me!
I started reading the book and related so much of what it said. I felt like it described exactly what I was thinking and doing. I started working through the process of connecting with my body and liberalizing ALL foods. I began recognizing and responding to hunger and fullness. It was magical. I no longer needed an external guide to tell me what, when, or how much to eat- I could trust my body and enjoy food again. Amazing!
When I went through this process I was just like you (I wasn’t a dietitian at that time, although I did work with one). I was: Scared. Unsure. Afraid of gaining a lot of weight. And Convinced that it would work for other people, but not me.
If you’re feeling that way now and want to become an intuitive eater so that you can replace food fear, guilt and anxiety with confidence, satisfaction, and well-being then I have a special invitation for you! The Intuitive Eating Group is enrolling right now → Reserve Your Spot Today!
If you’re thinking that it sounds “unusual”, you’re not alone. I’ve had several people contact me about this “strange” method. It’s not. Or, If you’re thinking thinking that it’ll work for other people, but not you- then let me show you the research… Intuitive eating has been around for about 20 years and has been published in over 75 peer reviewed journals where the research showed that intuitive eating is associated with:
- higher satisfaction with life
- reduced risk for heart disease
- improved blood glucose levels
- lower cholesterol
- optimism/greater positive mood
- proactive coping skills
- interoceptive awareness
- pleasure in eating
- lower body mass index
- body trust
- higher body satisfaction
- less internalization of the thin ideal
- higher levels of self esteem
- enjoyable movement and exercise
