Don’t get me wrong, listening to your body and honoring your hunger + fullness cues is critical to your non-diet lifestyle…

but unfortunately many well meaning coaches teaching on intuitive eating and the anti-diet culture movement fail to teach you how to listen to your body in the first place.

If you have been dieting (whether you knew it or not) it can be extremely hard to know what your body is saying especially when it seems to just be shouting you want another brownie (insert eye roll). And the more obsessive (often seen as extreme discipline and healthy eating) the harder it can be to discern what exactly your body needs and whether or not you can even trust it.

Let’s face it, we are not taught to trust our bodies. We are not taught to enjoy indulgent foods. And we are not taught that you can be healthy without watching what you eat, tracking your food in some way, or focusing on weight loss/ fat loss.

In today’s episode I am walking you through some of the baby steps that will help you learn how to listen to your body helping you become a more mindful and intuitive eater.

Learning how to know when you’re hungry, when you’re full, and what kinds of foods your body *might* actually be needing from moment to moment is a nuanced practice that takes time, patience, and a lot of grace.

So grab your favorite beverage or head out for a walk, hit play, and learn how you can trust your body around food one bite at a time.

PS.
If you are looking to dive a bit deeper into the world of intuitive eating with a mindful approach, I have a 30 Day Kit that walks you through the foundational skills in daily bite sized bits. You can get that here: https://alishacarlson.com/tmep30daykit/ (did I mention you can get this for less than a $1 a day?!)

PPS. If you know you want to get started on this journey, but not sure you can do it alone, you fill out the form here, and let’s talk!
