Give the body exactly what it needs, listen to it, and it will be satisfied. This is the whole point of intuitive eating. In addition, this is not just a way to get rid of excess weight, but a way of life. In addition, there are 10 basic principles of intuitive eating.
1. Give up diets
Do not torture your body with the rejection of substances that are useful to it. You should not only forget about diets, but also realize what harm they bring to you, because a week will pass, and all the lost kilograms will return, not to mention the spoiled skin, nails and hair. Only then can you focus on what will benefit you.
2. Respect your hunger
Everyone knows that breakfast is a must, but almost no one eats it.
Throughout the day, you randomly eat different snacks, and when you come home late, you fill up to satiety, as you are pretty hungry for the whole day. Therefore, a new day should begin with a full breakfast, then you will have enough strength to work in the morning.
3. Challenge food control
There is no need to adhere to rigid restrictions, for example, “only 1000 calories today, no more.” And don’t beat yourself up for every piece of cake or chocolate bar you eat. It’s better to eat a piece now than a whole cake later.
4. Make peace with food
Allow yourself to eat what you like (in moderation, of course).
5. Respect your sense of fullness
While eating, learn to understand in a timely manner that you are no longer hungry. Even if you have food left on your plate and you know you can eat more, don’t.
6. Find the Satisfaction Factor
Learn not just to satisfy your hunger, but to enjoy food, so you will notice that in fact you do not need so much to get enough.
7. Don’t get in a bad mood
Eating your bad mood, stress or resentment with something tasty is a bad solution to the problem, or rather, it will not solve your problems in any way, while bringing a couple of extra pounds. So learn to deal with your problems without eating them.
8. Respect your body
As the saying goes, your body is your temple. Protect him, take care of him and, most importantly, love him, stop complexing. You can work on yourself and improve — you just need to learn to love and respect your body.
Lead an active lifestyle, stop being lazy. You don’t have to push yourself to the point of exhaustion, but you should at least once a day do something like a ten-minute walk in the park or a bike ride.
10. Respect your health — choose a sensible diet
Eat foods that contain the most nutrients and do not harm your body. If you want harmful
food — eat its healthy substitute. For example, candy can be replaced with dried fruits, and soda can be replaced with berry compote.
