Intuitive Eating During Menopause - Give Up Dieting For Good
Intuitive Eating is the name coined by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in their groundbreaking book of the same name.
So many women put themselves through the relentless cycle of going on and off diets, sometimes losing some weight, but always putting it back on, often ending up even heavier than when they started out.
What's worse, the diet/binge cycle can leave you feeling like a total failure, furious with your lack of willpower and guilty because you didn't stick to your self-imposed regime. This is why using slimming diets as a route to menopause weight loss is such a bad idea.
It's all horribly negative, but thankfully intuitive eating is the key to breaking away from this demoralising cycle, and building a new and positive relationship with food.
Once you do that, weight issues start to manage themselves. By adopting a whole new approach to food, you break the pattern of overeating for good. Your excess weight gradually slips away, and you feel healthier in mind and body than ever before. It's a great approach - read on, to find out how intuitive eating works.
What Is Intuitive Eating?
In their book, Intuitive Eating, Tribole and Esch describe in great detail the 10 principles of their approach.
This is the interdependent set of ideas that you need to follow to change your relationship with food. It all makes perfect sense, and the book explains the approach clearly, with plenty of case histories and examples.
This is a powerful approach which can be extremely effective if you let yourself go with it. Eating this way really can change your whole attitude to food, and make a huge difference to the way you eat from now on.
Here's an outline of the 10 Principles of Intuitive Eating, with a brief description of each one. If you're interested in trying this approach, you'll want to read the whole book, and refer to it often.

The greed challenge
"One of the main struggles I've had with intuitive eating is grappling with the challenge of satiety versus greed...
"It is easy to kid yourself that you are not yet full, and therefore want to eat more, because you actually are just being greedy.
But it is hard to accept this less desirable trait in ourselves (and sometimes, for me, easier to blame it on something like 'emotional eating')."
