What Is Intuitive Eating?

I believe in Intuitive Eating? Do you?

1. "What is intuitive eating? Intuitive eating also is known as normal eating, diet survival, nondieting, and the no-diet approach.
2. What are the benefits of intuitive eating?
A study conducted at Brigham Young University showed that 24 female students following the intuitive eating plan had a reduced body mass index (BMI), lowered triglyceride levels, increased high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels, and reduced overall risk for cardiovascular disease. In addition, the plan leads to better body image and a diet with higher nutritional quality, which has multiple health benefits.
3. What about exercise?
Exercise is strongly encouraged. It leads to a better understanding of the mind-body connection. Do not concentrate on how many calories you are burning. Instead, focus on how good it feels to move your body and how the food that you ate is fueling your activity". via RD411
