Have you ever heard of intuitive eating? This beneficial approach, which encourages you to respect your individual needs, offers several advantages for your health. In this post, Karine Gravel, nutritionist and doctor of nutrition introduces intuitive eating and its 10 basic principles, formulated by dietitians Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch.
It goes without saying that “conscious eating”, also called “mindful eating”, is an increasingly popular term in the world of food. Nutritionists and dieticians use the word, which generally refers to having greater individual responsibility for your overall health. It is not just about eating well, but about establishing a healthy relationship with the food we consume. This philosophy has become so well-received that it is sometimes touted as the “new solution” to weight loss. While weight loss may be a direct consequence, the principle of conscious eating cannot be reduced to this single benefit. We invite you to explore the broader meaning of conscious eating by providing you some ways to gradually integrate it into your life.
