If you're wondering how to stop the desire to constantly eat junk food
If you want to know if Intuitive Eating will help you eat better, and recover your target weight and physical energy
Intuitive eating is also known as "mindful eating", which incorporates mindful meditation and the act of "being" instead of "doing". Being in the moment is a state of mind where you are present and aware of your feelings, thoughts, and surroundings. It's letting go of all the stress, worries and restrictions we are bombarded with in daily life. This is a practice you may be familiar with if you practice yoga and meditation.
Scanning is a way to observe and note any sensations or areas in our body that we wish to pay more attention to or nurture more: this may be a stretched muscle or an injury that we want to heal. Through this process that takes us within, into our minds to explore ourselves, becoming more self-aware so that we can make better decisions in our daily lives that are best for us.
The principles of mindful meditation are similar to how you approach intuitive eating, taking that moment to listen and observe your own body's needs and feelings, as part of deciding how and when to eat. As you indulge in a meal, you'll notice how your body and emotions react, by enjoying the taste, the sensation of satisfying your hunger and the emotions associated with eating. The goal is to allow your body and mind guide you through those decisions, without guilt or haste, so that you get the best out of every meal.
After a lifetime of being told what to eat, what not to eat and when to eat, we are so adapted to the restriction that it may seem impossible to adjust our thinking to a more intuitive concept. When we connect with our body, mind, food, and nature around us, we tune into our body's responses and change more acutely. This will happen internally, as we experience certain sensations and feelings when we eat certain foods and experiences. We'll achieve more control over how we feel, and with a more balanced approach to food, there will be less fluctuation with weight changes (loss or gain) and better health as a result. As your weight stabilizes, you'll feel less likely to binge eat or jump on a new diet with an extreme way of eating.
With this new balanced approach to eating, your relationship with food will improve and become less antagonistic. It will be less about what you cannot have and more about simply enjoying what you eat and feeling less anxious overall. The level of anxiety we experience when trying to follow a diet wreaks havoc on our mind and body, keeping us in a perpetual state of stress and categorizing our way of eating and exercise with a limited view of complete wellness.
