Do any of these ring true for you?
- Have you tried so many diets you’ve lost count, only to end up right back where you started?
- Do you jump from one diet to the next trying to find the one “perfect” plan?

Intuitive Eating, The “Un-Diet”
Intuitive Eating is an evidence based approach that provides a different way of thinking about food, our bodies, and our health. It is a framework that helps us let go of the myth of dieting (which leads to deprivation, rebellion, and rebound weight gain). It means learning to trust your body and its signals and honoring your physical, mental, and emotional health. It is about normalizing and healing your relationship with food.
Intuitive Eating takes the focus off of the scale and rules and restrictions and puts it on health-promoting behaviors, improving body image, and finding peace, enjoyment, and satisfaction with food. It is a self-care framework based on ten principles that teaches a different approach to

“Before this class I had no idea that my body had anything to say about my hunger. I believed it was all in my head. I thought that surely, if I searched long enough I could find the diet that worked for me. All the while everything I needed was within my reach and body. It’s called Intuitive Eating. With IE I found I could free up the diet restrictions, remove the pressure of failed diets and let my body tell me what it needed. What an amazing feeling!”

“My life is quieter around food and I feel more at peace with my choices. I don’t obsess over everything I eat, nor do I exercise to burn off every calorie I eat. It has also helped to inoculate me from the constant barrage of messages we get from diet culture.”
