Respect your fullness

Respect your fullness.

Do you mean that feeling full is ok?

Is it ok to feel full?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That question was playing in a loop in my head for weeks when I was studying intuitive eating. Since the age of 12, I held a belief that feeling full was to be avoided and when I did it meant my willpower had failed.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀
I held the belief that feeling full should be avoided. That it was bad to feel full.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you are a “good dieter”, just like I was, you likely did or still do hold that belief.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just like hunger feelings, I had to learn to be comfortable with fullness feelings. I had to learn to feel the different level of fullness my body gave me and get acquainted it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Respect your fullness

Intuitive Eating teaches us how to feel our body signals like hunger and fullness. To “decode” them and be guided by these body messages. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Intuitive Eating operates hand in hand with mindful eating which is key is getting familiar with our fullness signals.⠀⠀

Respect your fulness by eating mindfully. Be present with your food and your fullness.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Next time you eat: place your utensil on the table between each bite and ask yourself: What is my current level of fullness?
