You’ve heard about “The Diet Cycle” enough. Let’s switch it up and talk about what this Mindful Eating cycle looks like today.
So, how does it work?
This model was developed my Michelle May, MD. It can teach us how to develop awareness with our experiences, internal cues, and feelings about food. It helps shift the intention from weight-focused interventions and lays the foundation for a non-diet, mindful-based approach to eating, health, and self-care.
Creating mindfulness can help you:
- End the cycle of restricting and dieting
- Gain confidence with your body’s signals
- Create a positive and enjoyable relationship with food
I integrate a mindfulness approach with my clients (when appropriate) when we’re re-learning how to use internal cues of hunger and satiety, rather than external restrictive rules.
What are you doing to create more mindfulness with food, health, or self-care?
Eating more plants can come with its challenges. There’s a lot of nutrition noise out there, everyone has an opinion, and it can be confusing to figure out what works best for YOU. Working through these challenges and learning how to easily incorporate more plant-based foods into your diet and lifestyle can be helpful. Working with a plant-based dietitian to guide you through your unique journey and surrounding yourself with other like-minded people who are on a similar journey can be monumental. When you join my nutrition coaching program, you’ll get a highly customized, one-on-one experience to help you confidently and sustainably eat foods that taste good and make you feel good.
