Since hitting the month of September, I'm officially one year on from ditching the diet - and wow don't I notice the difference it has made to my life! So I just thought I would share a few tips that I've learned from my own journey so far, that I thought would be helpful to those who are beginning an intuitive eating path.
1. Recognise that giving up the control you think a diet brings to your life can be truly scary - with the main fear being around weight gain and not being able to trust yourself with food.
Acknowledge this fear, but remember that diets do not actually really help you to control your weight in the LONG term (overall, they help you put it on). The only person who can do this is you, not a diet, and the more you let dieting go, the more you are able to learn how you can trust yourself.
