I think in order for anyone to try anything as counter-cultural as Intuitive Eating, one has to hit Diet Bottom.
What is Diet Bottom?
Diet Bottom is realizing…
*Dieting doesn’t work in the long run, it just makes you fatter & sadder.
*There is more to life than being obsessed over food!
*Food is NOT the enemy and we DO deserve to eat, irregardless of our size.
I hit Diet Bottom after many attempts at Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, “eating healthy”, & of course the good old “living a healthy lifestyle.”
I was sick of documenting every morsel of food, and hating myself for eating three bites of brownies, & then overexercising to make up for it. (I would go to the gym twice a day to pay penance.)
I knew there had to be another way! That way lead to imperfect peace.
Did you reach a moment in your life where you hit Diet Bottom?
