“I’m confused. I literally just ate a second ago and I’m hungry again! And it sounds crazy, I feel like I can’t trust my body.”
“Yet I know Intuitive Eating is good … but I’m having troubles with my hunger. Where do I go from here?”
I’m paraphrasing, but a friend just asked me those questions a few days ago.
She’d been getting into Intuitive Eating and really loving the concepts. The first practice, Honor Your Hunger, made a lot of sense to her.
Instead of following a meal plan or some dietitian’s food plan, she would listen to her body.
Sounds easy and straightforward, right?
It’s confusing as all hell. And that’s okay. It’s supposed to be confusing.
