Most people are familiar with all kinds of different diets, but they may not know much about Intuitive Eating. If you are sick of dieting, I have good news for you. Intuitive Eating is not a diet!
Dieting and other forms of restriction are likely what’s causing your problems with food. Now you might say, “But don’t I need to be on a diet to be healthy.” I’ve heard that a lot, and that’s what the diet industry wants you to believe. In reality, diets have been scientifically proven to fail by lowering metabolism and increasing preoccupation with food.
In other words, dieting makes you feel crazy around the foods you “can’t” have, and you end up eating more of those foods in the long run. When you eat those foods, you feel like you don’t have self-control and conclude that you must need to follow a diet. This increases your cravings, and the hopeless cycle continues. However, you haven’t failed, dieting has failed you!
Ninety-five percent of people that go on a diet will regain all the weight they lost. In fact, dieting has been a consistent predictor of weight gain. I always say, dieting is a highly effective way to lose a whole lot of happiness while gaining pounds. If losing happiness and gaining pounds isn’t your goal, dieting may not be for you!
If you’ve been on diets, you may have blamed yourself, but it’s the process of dieting that doesn’t work. Dieting works against the way your mind and body naturally work. Intuitive Eating works WITH your mind and body to set you up for success. Intuitive Eating allows you to enjoy your eating while improving your health. There are over 100 studies validating the benefits of Intuitive Eating.
