What is Intuitive Eating?
Intuitive Eating is a weight-inclusive, evidence-based model of eating developed by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch.
The Intuitive Eating process is just that...a process, and is highly personal and dynamic, honoring both physical and mental health. There are 10 principles of Intuitive Eating which include:
1. Reject the Diet Mentality
2. Honor Your Hunger
3. Make Peace with Food
4. Challenge the Food Police
5. Respect Your Fullness
6. Discover the Satisfaction Factor
7. Honor Your Feelings without Using Food
8. Respect Your Body
9. Exercise—Feel the Difference
10. Honor Your Health with Gentle Nutrition

What if I still want to lose weight?
I understand that it can feel strange or uncomfortable to put the pursuit of weight loss on the back burner during this process. Please know that it is okay to still want to lose weight or change your body. In our diet culture world, we've been conditioned to believe that we need to be smaller in order to be worthy.
Bodies change through all stages of life for many reasons and it is unethical for me (or any healthcare provider) to encourage or promise weight loss. What I can promise is that regardless of your body weight or size, you can learn to appreciate and honor it, and implement health-promoting behaviors.
What does Health at Every Size mean?
The Health At Every Size® Principles are:
Weight Inclusivity: Accept and respect the inherent diversity of body shapes and sizes and reject the idealizing or pathologizing of specific weights.
Health Enhancement: Support health policies that improve and equalize access to information and services, and personal practices that improve human well-being, including attention to individual physical, economic, social, spiritual, emotional, and other needs.
Respectful Care: Acknowledge our biases, and work to end weight discrimination, weight stigma, and weight bias. Provide information and services from an understanding that socio-economic status, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, and other identities impact weight stigma, and support environments that address these inequities.
Eating for Well-being: Promote flexible, individualized eating based on hunger, satiety, nutritional needs, and pleasure, rather than any externally regulated eating plan focused on weight control.
Life-Enhancing Movement: Support physical activities that allow people of all sizes, abilities, and interests to engage in enjoyable movement, to the degree that they choose.
