What is Intuitive Eating?
Intuitive Eating is an evidence-based, mind-body health approach that teaches you how to tune into your body’s unique signals. Rather than following rigid dieting rules, Intuitive Eating encourages you to listen to your body’s natural hunger and fullness cues, fostering a healthier relationship with food. It’s about trusting your inner body wisdom to make choices around food that feel good in your body, without judgment and influence from diet culture.
