Healthy relationship to food, first and foremost


We all know it: Nutrition & healthy eating is important. But not as important as first & foremost, the relationship you have with food, eating, your body & self. All the nutrition knowledge in the world can be counterproductive without a solid base built first. It’s like building a house on a foundation of twigs. It doesn’t matter what the top is built of, it’s all going to come crumbling down at some point.

The 10th, & final principle of Intuitive Eating is: Honour your Health with Gentle Nutrition. Meaning, when the diet mentality has been removed, when the trust in your body’s innate wisdom has been re-established, when your interoceptive awareness is built, when you have finally re-connected with your inner being & your autonomy is strong against diet culture, THEN, we talk nutrition.

It’s not a race. It’s the journey back to yourself. It’s all YOU. You choose how the race is run & where you’re going to run to, walk to, stumble to or crawl to next. How cool is that?
