An interactive workshop on Intuitive Eating, a non-diet approach to break the cycle of chronic eating disorders and heal people’s relationship with food was organised in the national capital recently.

The workshop was organised by nutritionist Sahiba Bhardwaj and spiritual healer Sakshi Kumar where more than 20 individuals attended and experienced a mix of light meditation, tips on intuitive eating, relished delicious food from gluten-free, vegetarian and non-vegetarian options paired with wine and mocktails.

“The intuitive eating concept was created by two registered dietitians - Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in the year 2015 recognising the detrimental effects of diet culture on our eating habits as well as body image. The concept appears quite simple - it encourages us to tune in to our body’s internal cues i.e., hunger, fullness and satisfaction and to reject rules, restrictions and schedules. There are no meal plans and no foods that are off limits. You are given unconditional permission to eat whatever you want without feeling guilty,” said Bhardwaj, a dietitian and a graduate from Tufts University, Boston, in nutrition science and research.

 “The heart of this method is to trust your body’s internal hunger and satiety signals to guide you on when, what and how much to eat. Yet, intuitive eating is not as simple as a “hunger-fullness diet,” it encourages us to connect with our body and listen to its needs. Sometimes, this means a salad. Another time, it can be, dessert. This approach is not only centered on food but healing body image issues and exercise,” she said.

“Intuitive eating helps one to move away from conflicting information about nutrition and helps you to reconnect with your body’s wisdom, learn to listen to its hunger, fullness and satiety cues to promote long-term health - physically, mentally and emotionally,” stated Bhardwaj.

“Intuitive eating is an evidence-based approach to healthy lifestyle that prioritises internal cues rather than body weight. The 10 principals of intuitive eating that can help you to build a healthy relationship with food and your body get rid of food rules include learn how to trust your body and eat without guilt or shame stop dieting, so that you have your mind free to focus on things that really matter stop the restrict/binge cycle navigate emotional eating,” she added.

“The workshop concluded with two meditations. Meditation helps one reconnect with oneself. This is a crucial step in eating and living intuitively as meditation helps raise your vibrations, so you can trust your own inner voice,” summed up Kumar about the workshop.
