I can’t really label how I’m eating as fully intuitive or fully mindful eating - because a lot of things I do go against some of the “principals” promoted by groups and books.
Simply, I eat balanced meals with healthy fats, carbs, and adequate protein.
If I crave something, I have it.
If I am hungry, I eat more.
I eat slowly.
I drink water between bites.
I eat on meal times, and sometimes I don’t.
My health physically is still the biggest priority... so more organic foods that affect women’s hormones like dairy, fruits, and poultry/meats. My other is my cholesterol. So healthy fats like nuts, oils, and seeds are big in my daily intake.
I’ve tracked in processed foods/ice cream and cookies for in 3-4x a week the last two years and had high cholesterol again. So eating intuitive with a donut for breakfast and a deli sandwich for lunch won’t reach my health goals.
My mental health is also important ... obsessed with weighing my food and myself are out the window.
