In a world filled with diet culture and quick-fix solutions, it's easy to lose touch with our bodies and the innate wisdom they hold. Intuitive eating is a powerful approach that helps us reconnect with our bodies, heal our relationship with food, and find true nourishment. It's about listening to our inner cues, honoring our hunger and fullness, and embracing a balanced and joyful approach to eating. In this blog post, I will share the top 10 intuitive eating tips to help you heal your mind, body, and soul.

First, though, Allow me to share with you my own personal journey with food. It's certainly has been an enticing love and hate relationship, from being anorexic back in high school to becoming severely overweight, bordering on serious health risks including diabetes; to finally losing a 100 pounds, getting healthy and coming to present day and now adjusting to motherhood as well as peri-menopause, I am telling you, dear friend I have experienced it all and have done all the things when it has come to diets and fads. 

It's honestly through coming to understand Intuitive Eating and healing my relationship with food that I feel I have found a balance and perhaps - just maybe- and hopefully this will lend some guidance and valuable insight for you as well. 

So go grab your favorite cup of positivity and I'll continue...


Before we really get into the nitty-gritty, I want to be clear on something - Intuitive eating is a mindful and balanced approach to eating that focuses on listening to your body's cues, honoring your cravings, and cultivating a healthy relationship with food. It is not about strict rules or restrictions but rather about finding joy, satisfaction, and nourishment in your eating experiences.

1. Reject Diet Mentality:

The first step towards intuitive eating is to let go of the diet mentality. Say goodbye to restrictive rules, calorie counting, and weight obsession. Embrace the belief that all foods can fit into a healthy and balanced lifestyle.


2. Honor Your Hunger:

Listen to your body's hunger cues and respond to them. Eat when you are physically hungry, and choose foods that will truly nourish and satisfy you. Trust your body's wisdom to guide your eating patterns.


3. Make Peace with Food:

Give yourself permission to eat all kinds of foods without guilt or judgment. Allow yourself to enjoy your favorite treats in moderation. Remember that food is not just fuel; it is also meant to be pleasurable.


4. Challenge Food Police:

Silence the critical voices in your head that label foods as "good" or "bad." Challenge the internalized beliefs that equate your worth with what you eat. Embrace a compassionate and non-judgmental attitude towards yourself and your choices.


5. Discover Satisfaction:

Focus on finding true satisfaction in your meals. Slow down, savor each bite, and pay attention to the flavors, textures, and aromas. Allow yourself to experience pleasure and satisfaction from your food.

6. Respect Your Fullness:

Learn to recognize your body's signals of fullness and stop eating when you feel satisfied, not overly full. Tune in to the subtle cues that indicate you've had enough to eat and respect your body's natural limits.


7. Cope with Emotions:

Find alternative ways to cope with emotions instead of turning to food for comfort. Explore activities that bring you joy, practice self-care, seek support from loved ones, or engage in creative outlets like writing or painting..


8. Respect Your Body:

Embrace body positivity and accept your body as it is. Shift your focus from appearance to overall well-being. Treat your body with kindness, respect, and gratitude for all that it does for you.


9. Exercise for Joy:

Engage in movement and physical activity that brings you joy and makes you feel good. Let go of rigid exercise routines and embrace activities that you genuinely enjoy, whether it's dancing, hiking, or practicing yoga.


10. Cultivate Self-Compassion:

Finally, be gentle with yourself throughout this journey. Embrace self-compassion and let go of perfectionism. Remember that healing your mind, body, and soul is a process, and it's okay to have ups and downs along the way


To wrap this all up, Intuitive eating is a transformative approach that allows us to break free from the cycle of diets and restrictions.
