Mindful Eating or is a “non-diet” philosophy based on the belief that your body’s natural hunger and full signals provide all the information you need to maintain a balanced weight and health life. The premise of intuitive eating is that learning to “listen” to your body’s innate wisdom, and banishing food rules, can set you free from the shackles of constant ‘food control’.
Other names for this approach include:
- Non-Diet Approach
- Intuitive Eating
- Conscious Eating
Susie Orbach, a psyhotherapist and author, who has pioneered intuitive eating for years, sums up 5 simple steps to mindful eating, in her pocket-sized book, “On Eating”.
