23 May MC #14: Intuitive Eating with Alissa Rumsey
The term ‘intuitive eating’ has been loosely thrown around for the last couple of years, but it is often out of context and misunderstood. Does it really mean eating whatever I want, whenever I want and as much as I want? Can I do it wrong? What if I find myself unable to stop eating foods I’ve always perceived as being unhealthy… cakes, donuts, ice cream, pies…?
In this episode of MaxiChats we chat to non-diet dietician Alissa Rumsey about what exactly intuitive eating is, the principles around it and the context in which she uses it her practice. We explore the effects of dieting and why diets so often fail, how a non-diet approach may offer a solution, the importance of body acceptance in healing your relationship with food and weightloss goals in the midst of this.
It is a super interesting episode and we hope that it answers any question you’ve ever had around the concept of intuitive eating.
