I love this interview I did on the Healthspace podcast as it provides a great outline for what intuitive eating is and how using internal body cues of hunger, fullness and satisfaction to guide your eating (instead of diets) rebuilds body wisdom and trust.
Client: I've noticed a pattern where I will binge eat, sleep it off or numb by watching TV, social media, etc for the day. It sounds so simple in theory to journal, or get fresh air but in reality, my default is to just reach for the ice cream and sit in front of the TV. How do you go about dealing with hard emotions without self-sabotaging the process?
Most people I meet assume a health coach helps people lose weight and get healthy with meal plans or new diet.
But in reality, most of my clients are already health-conscious, they’re not afraid of a chia seed pudding, and they probably switched to almond mylk years ago. What they struggle with is their relationship with food and body.
My intention for these posts is to give you an example of how I make decisions around food that is right for me, and in turn, pave the way for you to get curious about what right for your body.
