This week Sami and Aleen are joined by nutrition therapist and originator of the Intuitive Eating movement, Elyse Resch, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S, Fiaedp, FADA, FAND. They start with an explanation directly from the source about what intuitive eating actually means, and dispel the myths associated with it. They also talk about the fear of gaining weight we inevitably feel when trying intuitive eating, and share the concept of “radical acceptance” of our bodies. Plus, they talk about the getting started, how its a process, and why there’s no perfect way to intuitively eat. Next, they answer some listener questions including one about the nature of cravings and whether or not you’re allowed to go in for another bite (and finish that package of Oreos). They talk about Sami’s wedding this weekend, which leads to a conversation about moving on from diets. Then they finish the show by talking about keeping your kitchen stocked so you can eat when you’re actually hungry, and the best way to ease into your intuitive eating journey.
