What is Intuitive Eating?

More and more people, including dietitians, are talking about Intuitive Eating (IE), but what exactly is intuitive eating? In this video, I'm going over the basics of intuitive eating and what it includes, explaining how it came about, and talking about how intuitive eating can help people. A lot of people think that intuitive eating is just about listening to your hunger and fullness cues and that to be an intuitive eater you simply need to eat only when you're hungry and stop eating when you're full. That's not what intuitive eating is though. It isn't a diet based on rigid rules and while listening to your hunger and fullness are two principles of intuitive eating, there are ten principles total. There's a lot more to intuitive eating than just hunger and fullness and I'm breaking it all down for you in this video.
