#017- Intuitive Eating and Happiness: What's the Connection

Our bodies are SO good about telling us what it wants, but sometimes we aren't that great at listening. Alllllll month long we have been talking about really focusing on what our bodies are telling us and intuitive eating.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret: I actually don't like the term intuitive eating. My take is to be intentional, not intuitive because some people can’t trust their intuition. Listen to this week’s podcast to know why I don’t love all the steps, and how I put my own spin on these steps.

I want you to be more intentional and mindful about what you put into your body. The type of food we eat impacts our overall health -- both mentally AND physically. 

Did you know food was so powerful? 💪


The goal here is nourishment for your body.  Here are 10 steps to get started:

  • Reject the diet mentality. Stop dieting.
  • Recognize your hunger.
  • Eat when your body tells you that you're hungry and stop eating when you are full.
  • Make peace with food.
  • Challenge the 'food police'.
  • Feel your fullness.
  • Discover the satisfaction factor.
  • Cope with your feelings without using food.
  • Respect your body.
  • Movement - feel the difference
  • Honor your health - gentle nutrition

Being more intentional will lead to a happier you. I'm here to help you live your best life!
