What Is Intuitive Eating?
Intuitive eating has roots in evidence-based research regarding the health benefits associated with intuitive eating. Intuitive eating is a framework for long-term health that uses behavior change, psychology, self-awareness, and intuition practices instead of restrictive diet plans or food rules to follow.
Happily, we’re seeing intuitive eating become more mainstream conversation as the rise of non-diet culture gains momentum. At Nutrition Stripped, intuitive and mindful living and eating is a cornerstone of our coaching process with clients and has been part of our philosophy as a company since day one.
Intuitive eating is a way of eating and living that’s unique to you — at its core, it’s a way of connecting with your unique food and body needs.

The intuitive eating movement started prior to this coined terminology with practitioners such as psychotherapist Susie Orbach in 1978 with her work with the psychology of dieting in women, author Geneen Roth in the early 1980s speaking to emotional eating, and Registered Dietitian Thelma Wayler in 1973 started a weight management program that focuses on emotional eating and lifestyle changes for long-term health.
