Our feeling of fullness is something that can change from day-to-day and meal-to-meal. Some days we find ourselves wolfing food down and other days we feel content on less than usual. The goal is to try and find that sweet spot of comfortable fullness.
If you tell yourself that you can’t or shouldn’t have a particular food, it can lead to intense feelings of deprivation that build into uncontrollable cravings and, often, bingeing. When you finally “give-in” to your forbidden food, eating will be experienced with such intensity, it usually results in overwhelming guilt.
Meal plans, macro tracking, and calorie counting are the opposite of listening to your body! External cues pull us further away from an awareness of what our body wants and needs, and the goal of intuitive eating is to listen in to our bodies cues in order to guide decision making about what, when, and how much we eat.
Research that shows that Intuitive Eating and body acceptance leads to positive health outcomes that far outweigh those gained by dieting. The truth of it is, there is NO way to lose weight quickly, easily, and permanently, and being at a low weight is not the be-all and end-all of health.
