Follow a diet that is directed and navigated by your own body. If you didn't guess it by now, this kind of diet is called 'intuitive eating.' Studies suggest that your own mind knows best what is good for your body than anyone else's mind. You just have to connect with it, decipher it and use your own discretion to frame your diet.
The concept of 'intuitive eating' was coined by the nutritionist duo - Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch - from California in the year 1995. The idea caught on fast and has been climbing its way up on the popularity charts ever since. The dietitians base their findings on some principles that are important to find success in this form of dieting.
A satisfied appetite leads to a happy mind.
7. Honour Your Feelings - Don't feed yourself to appease emotional hunger. Food is only to fulfil regular feeding needs of the body; it is not a solution for depression or stress.
8. Respect Your Body - Each body has its own individual needs. Find what your body really wants and give it heartily.
9. Feel The Difference - Change your focus from burning calories to feeling the adrenaline rush by exercising regularly. Since, your body and mind will be active and happy through proper meals, you'll realise you will be more energised to carry out your workout regime and also enjoy it.
10. Honour Your Health - Finally, make your food choices wisely and don't ever forego the need to have a healthy body. Though, a few guilty pleasures won't derail a regular sound diet.
'Intuitive eating' doesn't claim instant weight loss but it leads you on the right path to overall wellness. A steady mindful 'intuitive eating' will yield positive results in the long run, more than what all those trending diets promise.
