INTUITIVE EATING HAS BECOME UN-INTUITIVE
I received a text from my dear friend Dana who asked what I thought about an article written by CNN HEALTH, regarding returning to intuitive eating. The gist of it was that if we return to our childlike self, where we listen to our bodies and know what we feel like eating, when we are hungry and when we aren't, then we can restore our bodies to the size they are supposed to be. It suggests that we stop discriminating against size, and feel more satisfied and happy along the way. This sounds terrific- if only...
Here is a link to the article,

SAY IT'S CREATORS.
And here was my reply, with a few extra added words because I couldn't help myself when I started editing. Well, I have a mouthful to say.
Yes I think our bodies HAVE HAD more accurate internal sensors that WHEN interpreted correctly could guide our eating. These sensors must be rediscovered, for sure.
