What is Intuitive Eating?
Intuitive Eating is an approach that teaches you how to create a healthy relationship with your food, mind, and body--where you ultimately become the expert of your own body. You learn how to distinguish between physical and emotional feelings, and gain a sense of body wisdom. Intuitive Eating is rooted in 10 basic principles that invite you to a world of satisfying eating and a sense of freedom that can be exhilarating!
Student Health & Wellness offers Intuitive Eating workshops for students taught by certified Intuitive Eating Counselors. Four-week workshops are free for students and will provide education, activities, practice, and support. Workshops will be held at the CRWC. Check back in the fall for upcoming dates/times.
If you have any questions, or would like to meet with an Intuitive Eating counselor individually, please email Heidi. Not sure you want to go through the workshop sessions? Have a health educator come to your floor, sorority, or organization for a 1-hour Intuitive Eating Program. This 1-hour program will introduce you to Intuitive Eating and its 10 Principles.
