How To Listen To Your Body w/ Steph Gaudreau
We are all born as intuitive eaters, but through socialization and diet culture, we often drift away from the intuition that we hold from the beginning. I want to persuade you to get back to your true nature and increase your health-promoting behaviors through intuitive eating.
Prime Yourself To Pay Attention To Your Signals
Diet culture will have you believe that you should stay miserable even when you are not seeing the results you desire, just because it is familiar. Today is the day for you to challenge yourself, break out of that mold, and start building the capacity to listen to your body.
Instead of glorifying weight loss, it is time to prime yourself to pay attention to your signals of hunger and fullness and start to become more connected and aware of what your body is trying to tell you. How do you work to harness your intuition and embrace intuitive eating? Share your strategies with us in the comments on the episode page.
