We get it - diet culture sucks! It has created a hostile environment where fat phobia is stigmatized and thin privilege reigns supreme. This results in an overall dysfunctional relationship with food and it's no surprise society has now come to reject the 36"-24"-36" measurements of "beauty". Intuitive Eating (IE) rejects diet culture and promotes the love of self, and the love of all foods. While it is true we should respect our bodies and honor our health, social media has painted only a small fragment of what IE really is. Spoiler alert: it's not all about having a second helping of apple pie or eating a cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. IE is a DEEP framework based on ten guiding principles that can be applied for someone who has diabetes, high cholesterol, and other metabolic diseases. In today's episode we have Ayana Habtemariam MSW, RDN, LD who is a Certified Intuitive Eating counselor here to answer all our burning questions about the truth behind IE.
