Here is the perfect diet we’ve been looking for: “Intuitive eating”. In 2016, Molly Bahr changed her whole life with a Google search and from then on she devoted herself to promote this diet “intuitive eating”. See her Instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/mollybcounseling
Up to that moment, she had been dedicated to traditional ideas of dieting and health, encouraging followers of her growing fitness-focused Instagram account to weigh their food, watch their nutritional macros, and fret over their weight as a primary indicator of their health. Intuitive eating, on the other hand, is a theory that posits the opposite: Calorie counting, carb avoiding, and waistline measuring are not only making people emotionally miserable but contributing to many of the health problems previously attributed to simple overeating.
Intuitive eating has 10 tenets, but the most well-known one is that no foods are off limits and that there is no such thing as a “good” or “bad” food.
Intuitive eating sounds like permission to sit on your couch and eat pizza until you pass out. The theory is that if you can have pizza whenever you want, it feels less essential to eat it until you’re uncomfortable when the opportunity presents itself, or to seek out the opportunity at all. Telling yourself you can’t have something, meanwhile, gives it undue power and allure.
Live long intuitive eating!
