When we first enter the world, we’re born comfortable in our skin and we trust our hunger and fullness cues without a second guess. We eat intuitively in a way that supports us to grow and thrive so we can enjoy and explore the world around us. Whether it was milk or solids, we ate what we wanted for as long as we wanted. And when we became full, we turned away. We trusted our body, and it trusted us back.
Do you remember the moment in your life when all of that changed? The first time you decided not to – or perhaps were unable to – honor your hunger?
Somewhere along the line, many of us lose this innate tool to trust our bodies. Whether it’s because of the mixed messages we receive from the media, well-intentioned family or friends, or even health professionals, many of us learn to disconnect from what our body wants. Because “we shouldn’t really be hungry” or “it isn’t meal time yet,” it only becomes more difficult to decipher how we’re feeling. The good news is that you can always reclaim your ability to eat intuitively. According to a study published in January 2020, the benefits of eating this way have been associated with lower odds of depressive symptoms, low self-esteem, and body dissatisfaction.
