The Intuitive Eating Workshop is a safe space for students to discuss their experiences with food among a small group of others who are also interested in creating a new relationship with their mind, body, and food. Discussion topics are centered around the 10 Principles of Intuitive Eating, originally developed by “Intuitive Eating Pros” Evelyn Tribole, M.S., R.D., and Elise Resch, R.D., F.A.D.A., C.E.D.R.D. Learn more about the 10 Principles on the Intuitive Eating website: http://www.intuitiveeating.org/10-principles-of-intuitive-eating/.

Intuitive Eating Sessions

Intuitive Eating is an approach that teaches you how to create a healthy relationship with your food, mind, and body. You learn how to distinguish between physical and emotional feelings, and gain a sense of body wisdom as you reject the diet mentality. Intuitive Eating is rooted in 10 basic principles that invite you to a world of pleasurable yet healthy eating and a sense of freedom that can be exhilarating!
