Being Smart About Intuitive Eating
“I don’t know what my macro ratios are – I just eat!”
The above phrase is one I have admired for quite some time now. I never really understood how one could not know or even have the slightest idea of what their total daily intake was by the end of the day, but I guess that’s just because I have been so aware of my intake for such a long time that not knowing seemed so foreign and strange to me. However, despite viewing it as foreign and strange, I still admired those who didn’t know and just ate intuitively.
You know what else I admire, though? People who know and understand their body. I mean, of course it’s a learning process. Our bodies are so complex and extremely different from one another, which makes it even more difficult to understand our bodies, but I truly admire those who understand their bodies to the best of their ability and continue to learn and become more in tune with who they are and what their bodies need.
If you’ve read my last two posts, you probably have a pretty good idea of what my main goal is right now – to eat intuitively. But, like I’ve mentioned before, there has been some fear within me which has held me back from eating intuitively. However, after four days of not weighing or measuring my food and focusing more on my hunger cues rather than the time on the clock, the fear within me has dampened and I feel more confident in myself than ever before.
In the vlog posted below I share some realizations I’ve had over the past few days as well as the approach I have developed for myself to transition into and intuitive eater.
I hope the video wasn’t too long for you guys! I guess I had a lot to say! I can be such a blabber mouth ;)
