Welcome to the Fall 2021 Intuitive Eating Group Coaching Program!
This 10-week Intuitive Eating Group Coaching Program is designed to help you heal your relationship with food. If you're fed up with the endless cycle of dieting and weight regain, and you're ready to reconnect to your body and make peace with food-- this program is for you!
Over the course of 10 weeks, participants will work through the 10 Intuitive Eating Principles using the Intuitive Eating Workbook by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch. This program will provide you with the structure, community, and support you need to finally let go of dieting for good and discover a new way of improving your health.
What is Intuitive Eating?
Intuitive Eating is defined as "... a self-care eating framework, which integrates instinct, emotion, and rational thought and was created by two dietitians, Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in 1995. Intuitive Eating is a weight-inclusive, evidence-based model with a validated assessment scale and over 100 studies to date.
It’s a personal and dynamic process, which includes 10 principles:
- Reject the Diet Mentality
- Honor Your Hunger
- Make Peace with Food
- Challenge the Food Police
- Respect Your Fullness
- Discover the Satisfaction Factor
- Honor Your Feelings without Using Food
- Respect Your Body
- Exercise—Feel the Difference
- Honor Your Health with Gentle Nutrition
The principles work in two key ways:
- By helping you cultivate attunement to the physical sensations that arise from within your body to get both your biological and psychological needs met and
- Removing the obstacles and disruptors to attunement, which usually come from the mind in the form of rules, beliefs, and thoughts.
The process of Intuitive Eating is a practice, which honors both physical and mental health. Intuitive Eating is aligned with Health at Every Size, because the pursuit of intentional weight loss is a failed paradigm, which creates health problems: including weight stigma, weight cycling, and eating disorders. All bodies deserve dignity and respect."
