18. When Intuitive Eating Isn’t Working

If you've been trying intuitive eating and you feel like it is not working to bring you the peace and health you are looking for, I am going to tell you why right now...

The practice and principles of intuitive eating are IDEALISTIC. They are the end goal. But the end goal is not always the means to that end. Yes it sounds IDEAL to trust your hunger and fullness and to not have any food rules, BUT if you have a bunch of internalized rules that dictate your life, it's damn near impossible to adopt intuitive eating just because you want to.

Becoming an intuitive eater takes hard and challenging work. You have to actively and intentionally implement a nutrition practice that DIRECTLY challenges your food rules head on. For example, if you believe that you are only allowed to eat carbohydrates once per day, then you need a nutrition prescription that includes eating carbohydrates 3-4 times per day. And this must be followed every day for at least 6 weeks before your body starts to connect with carbohydrates and give you clear somatic feedback on how they make you feel.

While intuitive eating sounds like a walk in the park, the process of getting there is anything but that. It's emotional, it's challenging, and the experience of coming back home into your body is vulnerable. But it's also the most empowering thing you will ever do.

In today's podcast episode I dive deeper into why intuitive eating might not be working for you and I give you step by step instructions on how you can start to make it work for you, FOR REAL.
