Unpacking Gentle Nutrition

At some point, I’ll just eat better right?

That is often the question we ask ourselves as we go through intuitive eating. We think that if we do the intuitive eating work diligently it will lead us to eating better.

What is eating better?

To a brain that has been affected by diet culture and had to adapt to survive years of food restriction, eating better most often means “eating healthier”. 

Intuitive eating has brought us to the place where we know we shouldn’t be restricting food and should have pleasure with food but unknowingly we still are holding on to beliefs that lead us to think that the end result of the intuitive eating process has to be healthy eating.

But is the end product of intuitive eating healthy eating?

No, it is not. Gentle Nutrition is the end product of an intuitive eating process. Here is the definition of gentle nutrition as per Evelyn Tribole in the book intuitive eating.

“Make food choices that honor your health and taste buds while making you feel well. Remember that you do not have to eat perfectly to be healthy. You will not suddenly get a nutrient deficiency or gain weight from one snack, one meal, or one day of eating. It’s what you eat consistently over time that matters – progress not perfection is what counts.” – Evelyn Tribole.

Gentle nutrition is the ultimate place where we redefine health, nutrition, and trust for our bodies.
