Eating intuitively when it's too loud to hear your intuition

I'm betting many of you can relate:With a full-time job and two young kids, I spend the bulk of my days in a position where it feels next to impossible to tune into my intuition well enough to honor it. I'm often eating to the point of physical discomfort during the day, because I'm trying to "honor my hunger" and it's telling me I want, say, another heaping spoon of peanut butter.Honestly, that gut feeling that I need a source of energy is probably right on the money. It's the discomfort of…See More

Hello to all

Hello to each of you.  I am 57 and have struggled with my weight for my entire life.  A wonderful therapist introduced me to IE 2 years ago and it has made a major difference in my life.  Enormous stress stemming from the pandemic has made for a very difficult 16 months and I have gained weight and do not feel my best.  My knees hurt. I am hitting refresh on the IE principles and already feeling calmer and more at peace in my body.  Thank you for sharing your experiences.  See More
