Ditch diets and make peace with food in 3 steps

Episode 14: Now that you've done all the diets. Lost weight. Gained weight. Tried to love and accept your body by squeezing into skinny jeans only to end up frustrated, bingeing on chips, and hating yourself afterward.

You're ready to try something new. A new approach to health and loving the skin you're in. So you Google intuitive eating and you get a list of book reviews, blog posts, and news articles on the pluses and minuses of doing intuitive eating. 

But what is intuitive eating and how the heck do you apply it to your life when you've been on every diet on the planet and have no idea how to feed yourself without a list of do and don't eat foods?

In this Savor Food and Body Podcast episode, I'm talking with a fellow anti-diet dietitian and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor Meme Inge MS, RDN author of the Living Well Kitchen blog and more recently the book The Intuitive Eating Guide to Recovery; Let go of Toxic Diet Culture, Reconnect with Food, and Build Self-Love.

Meme Inge, MS, RDN, is a registered dietitian nutritionist helping people let go of extreme health views to live free of diets and shame, be comfortable in their own skin, and celebrate food and life.

Focusing on taste, accessibility, and gentle nutrition around food, Meme helps people feel nourished from the inside out and discover how to feel less stress and confusion about what, when, and how to eat.

As a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and mindful eating–trained dietitian, Meme helps people connect to their bodies to enjoy food instead of stressing about fads, food rules, or restrictive diets. Her work and blog, Living Well Kitchen, have been featured in The Huffington Post, CNN, SELF Magazine, HGTV, Buzz Feed, Greatist, Reader’s Digest, and more.

During the show, we're talking about what intuitive eating is and isn't by giving you a snapshot view of the 10 principles of intuitive eating, how to address the nuances of each principle, and Meme's top 3 "Put it into practice" strategies for getting started or maintaining an intuitive eating practice. 

No matter where you are on the journey of ditching diets and learning to make peace with food, I know you'll find some helpful nuggets of wisdom in this episode. Note-taking encouraged!
