Here are the 5 steps to stop dieting and find Food Sanity: Step 1: Give yourself permission to eat exactly what appeals to you.

To remove the feeling of obsession and compulsion around food, you need to Step 2: Follow the PSW eating guidelines. Step 3: Develop “emotional tolerance” — a skill far. Simply stop dieting.

Don’t put yourself on a diet, don’t try a new diet, don’t let your diet run your life. Nothing is off limits, nothing is required. The first and most important step to eating intuitively is to free yourself from the stigma that food and society can place on you.

If you want to learn more about intuitive eating and how it can help you in your own relationship to food, check out my 12-week program, be nourished. This online program is designed to help you end the cycle of dieting, bingeing, restricting and embrace intuitive eating. It’s based on the idea that all the calorie-counting and obsessing over weight loss stresses people out, to the point where the diet backfires or becomes unsustainable. Instead, intuitive eating involves paying attention to your body, and giving it what feels right. 10 key principles.

1. Reject the diet mentality. The diet mentality is the idea that there’s a diet out there that will work for you. Intuitive eating is the anti 2. Honor your hunger.

3. Make peace with food. 4. Challenge the food police. 5. Respect your fullness. When you’ve hit diet rock bottom, intuitive eating is an oasis. Finally, you can stop fighting with your body, stop counting points, stop measuring every morsel of food that passes through your lips.

You can have freedom in your relationship with food, and let go of your obsession. But for many people, the journey to [ ]. When it comes to diet, one strategy we mention regularly is eating intuitively. Since many of you were asking for more detail, we asked a Registered Dietician to provide some of the basics in this article, “How to Stop Dieting and Learn to Eat Intuitively.”. Sure, they seem to go against everything you’ve heard about weight loss, but experts say that’s exactly the point.

Remove distractions and enjoy with all your senses. Sit down with no books, no TV, no computers, and (at first) no serious conversation to distract you.

By working backwards from the outer symptom toward the inner dilemma, accepting that overeating or under-eating is not natural, you can start making inroads toward changing your behavior and understanding your beliefs so that you can ultimately stop playing the weight game and move on to new frontiers.

Willpower or self-control Willpower can be conceptualized as the most “mindless” approach, an effortful attempt to resist strong desires, often by using a structured diet very different from usual patterns of eating, and with little or no skill or use of self-management techniques.

  • Kati, I’m new to your channel, but I just want to say thank you. I’ve… I’ve felt insanely out of control and afraid since my ED has gotten less manageable. I’ve gotten a lot of comfort from your videos. Sometimes I don’t know what thoughts are MY thoughts and what are ED thoughts. I don’t know if I’m hungry because I’m sad or if I’m actually hungry, or if I’m binging or just regular eating. If I eat anything that I want, I’ll just gain all the weight back

  • i think my therapist thinks i’m recovered bc i never talk about my ED, but i do have the thoughts still & feel guilty, i’m just far along in recovery so they aren’t as intrusive. i’ve probably been attempting to intuitively eat for about a year and a half. my nutritionist told me about it a few years back and i finally stopped the recover/relapse cycle so i could do it. but it definitely is hard & i feel like i’m in a rut. i am the most i’ve ever weighed and it goes back and forth between guilt & acceptance. but it’s hard bc i’m really picky & hate the texture of most fruits & so i feel like i’m not eating that balanced. i just don’t know how to move forward towards full recovery

  • Colleen, I love the “happy weight” concept. You’re right. The focus on numbers never leads to happiness. I have a friend whose said, “I just have like 10 pounds to lose.” Why? Is it bc of the culture or bc she’s uncomfy with her body. Check out Embrace doc. I’m working towards my happy weight for the reasons you mentioned and bc I want to have energy to hike with my family, dance with no limits…

  • so i need severe therapy. I have previously suffered from suicidal thoughts and I can’t afford a therapist but watching your videos help so thank you.

  • How weird that I’m watching Shane’s series and then search intuitive eating on YouTube as I’m reading the book, and your video pops up!

  • im at the point where i cant even tell if im really hungry or just craving. the same goes to the amount of food i eat, i cant tell anymore when im full, dang

  • I love that the newer generation has so much more information available to them than the older generation. I have learned much and it has sparked my interest in research to improve my own life even if it’s later in life.

  • Hi Kati!
    I came over from Shane’s video and amazingly this, being my first viewing of a video from you, is most definitely the video I need right now in my current situation. Thank you so much!

  • You know what’s a shame? I just googled the German version of the book you recommended and it has been translated to “Loosing weight intuitively”… that sucks.

  • Hi Kati
    Whenever I take holiday from work to spend at home and ‘relax ‘ I never can quite relax. I get so stressed to make the most of my time even though I am wasting it being stressed. I get scared of being lonely and not enjoying my week off. And I can’t control it. Even if I tell myself there’s no point in stressing my body is unconsciously getting stressed. I’ll wake up with my heart beating and having not slept enough. And this will ruin my day as I will spend it tired as well as lonely and stressed. Do you have any advice? Thanks
    Jasmine

  • I love that statement, it’s what we naturally know as children. So true and why it’s so important not to push food and to get our children to eat all of their food. Let them learn themselves

  • This video was perfection <3 I cant wait to get up tomorrow and implement them. I always eat until full but sometimes i feel overly full, especially in the evening. Thank you lovely <3

  • Excellent Video! Excuse me for the intrusion, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you researched Dinanlinson Natural Beauty Approach (should be on google have a look)? It is a great one of a kind product for learning what to eat to look younger minus the headache. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my friend after many years got cool results with it.

  • In my experience, losing my weight is about feeling better, more active. Like you say, the body is smart and know where it feels more comfortable. Not so heavy and tired. I’m not too overweight, but my body is just not comfortable where it’s at. ����‍♀️

  • This is really helpful, I had a bad January, just eating tons of crap and always eating because i think i should eat now and not when I am actually hungry. Thanks for this video! ❤️

  • Thank you so much for this video! It’s really interesting! I’m trying to eat intuitively while losing weight but it’s so difficult. I’m also vegan too, so if you can check out my channel I would be really happy ����

  • I’ve read that society also projects this ideal of people not expressing or having “negative” emotions, and how avoidance of dealing with difficult emotional states from feelings by abusing substances is very typical (drugs, stimulants, foods etc). It’s so sad, it’s not a natural state of being to be subject to all the modern stresses but not allowed to just express them freely

  • Great video! I have read about intuitive eating today and I discovered that my way of eating has a name! People often say that I’m lucky because I eat what I want and I’m slim. And I’m surprised because why should I be fat? I can’t eat more than I need, that’s something natural, right? Food is my friend, calories is something I need to function and I like my body although don’t spend too much time thinking about it.

  • I can’t throw away my scales ( for my weight) i worry too much, and they really help me, reasure me, stop my mind from going crazy thinking i’ve gained weight when i hav’nt…. ( I’m french by the way)

    Edit 1year After: I have thrown the scales away. And I’m trying to eat with intuitive.

  • Hey, this is unrelated to the topic of this video but I had a question. How do I know if a therapist is right for me? Are there any general cues that can help me figure it out? Because I’ve had 3 therapists so far and the two I felt most at ease with at first, who seemed happier and more friendly, ended up not really helping me; whereas the other one I always felt a bit awkward around and they were quieter, but I felt like we got more done and it helped me more to see them.
    Also, if I decide I want to stop seeing a therapist or just not make a second appointment because I feel the fit isn’t right, how do I tell them (I get super anxious about it)?
    Love your videos!

  • It’s so sad how I have really lost the ability to eat intuitively. As a child, I never snacked or couldn’t stop myself from eating, but now I don’t even know what is hunger:(

  • I have some concerns about my Gluten/Dairy/Soy-Free diet and how it relates to IE. I definitely don’t crave soy or gluten. Lately things like Brie and blue cheese seem so enticing. It’s hard! Perhaps I should give them a try just to see if my body is still unable to handle those food physiologically. Actually I do crave bread now that I think about it. I think I have been craving the texture of french and sourdough bread but it’s the texture for me… anyone else able to relate? Anyone dealing with food allergies as well as disordered eating?

  • Awesome content ❤️ Thank you Kati ��
    My biggest take-away: food isn’t good or bad.
    Every food serves a purpose in our lives.
    This made me think of simply having preference based on what I like and my personal intentions for myself. A subtle yet profound breakthrough. Thank you ������

    And… what if all of my emotions have a place and serve a purpose in my life too??? �� what if instead of being overly active in trying to control my experiences aka the people / places & things that cause me to feel a certain way, I can simply observe what I’m feeling, why I feel it, and explore the question do I want to create the experience of feeling a certain feeling again or not? (Be accountable, take action to care for myself, change me if need be)

    Thank you for your kindness and generosity. This type of caring has been / is extremely elusive. You are appreciated ��❤️��

  • thank you so much, kati!

    i’m working on my recovery from my restrict-binge eating disorder, and it’s definitely not an eating process. when my eating disorder started, i had the mentality that i “wasn’t good enough” and i “needed control”. i became really angry and mean to my friends because i felt so frustrated that my body was making little to no changes. everyday i would eat little to no food, and then binge a lot during the night out of hunger and frustration. it got to a point in the summer where i ate two lollipops everyday whilst idolising malnourished bodies that i considered were beautiful. in that time i lost 7 pounds in within 4 days.

    however, one day i was able to put my thoughts aside to go to a stage show with my internet friends as well as my irl friends. i had so much fun, and i recognised that people loved me for who i am, and not what i look like. i decided to go vegetarian so that i can still have that “control” feeling, without it being too abusive.

    today i still feel really insecure about my body and i even have mental breakdowns about it every week. sometimes my breakdowns are out of disbelief that i actually tried to destroy myself by not eating, or about how i’ve lost the fight of me gaining control and losing weight.

    one day i aspire to look at myself and smile, and not overthink my meals. xx

  • Visit website called NextLevelDiet and get complete guide for your transformation. I got personalized meal plan for 28 days which contains ONLY food that I have chosen. They provided me with complete DIET PLAN for 30 days with TRAINING PLAN included and I finally started seeing results.

  • i use table measurements like cups, tbsps and tsps because they don’t bother me, and i start with a recommended serving size and eat more if i’m not satisfied which is rare bc i’m small ig?��

  • I come from a background of binge eating, so intuitive eating has caused me to lose weight. I obsess over food less and just eat when I’m hungry instead of when I’m sad.

  • Hey guys! I’m new to this community and just wanted to touch base on one thing Katie said in this video: self talk. If you’re having problems with positive self talk (like I have) check out the book “What to Say When You Talk to Yourself”. It’s really helped me out a lot and it might help you:)

  • wow -this is the best video I have ever seen about this topic It really moved me, and opened up <3 thanks a lot from the bottom of my heart -your beautiful soul <3 <3

  • Diet Plan called Custokebon Secrets kept appearing here on different youtube and I thought they were scam. However after my cousin follow it, and finally lost crazy amounts of weight with it without starving herself. I’m persuaded. You should not take my word for it, search for Custokebon Secrets on the google search engine.

  • Wow ���� holy shit #3 is so powerful & meaningful to me “make peace with food” your explanation & going in details wow I write that all down I needed that I need to work on this!!!!

  • I started cooking healthy recipes and it’s so much fun! I’ve made awesome salads and I seriously look forward to cooking everyday now…��

  • Thank you for this, it had been something I’ve struggled with. I’m shifting my perspective to my body feeling better, stronger, more able, more energy, as opposed to thinner. Thanks for tackling this, which I find is so often ignored when people discuss intuitive eating

  • I only eat when i’m hungry, exept before my period. I wonder why that is. I never diet and people say i eat little, but i guess i dont need as much, since my weight is the same as in my teenage years. Also: i eat all the bad stuff, and find that only alcohol will make me gain a bit weight if i drink more than usually for a period of time

  • I just want to put it out here so someone sees this and relates to what I feel… I know that staying fit and wanting a flat ab is all that there is in this world but after dieting and losing my weight and trying to maintain it with diet has driven me crazy… it actually doesn’t make me happy… I love this intuitive eating… who says this is bad and that is good? It should be your body and you should hear it out and follow… stay happy with ur body and just focus on keeping it happy and nourished

  • This is one of the best videos about food and dieting I have seen. I have always intuitively known that my body asks for what it needs and my craving is its “calling” to get me to to eat those foods. There are times that my body asks for more carbs and sweets and there are other times that I have no craving for those but craving for veges and fruits and other times, grains and meats. The craving is a direct translation of your body for what it needs and it intuitively knows what it needs. Why did we lose this important function of the body, I will never know. It is just the mass-media-fed guilt and resistance that cause all negative outcomes from what we eat. There is no such thing as a bad food.

  • Is this real? I mean, seriously, i also do track my macros and calories. But look where humanity has come… We need help to eat normally. And this has a name for it ‘intuitive eating’. This is just eating, we’re fucked up. This video is amazing, but i feel sad for being in this situation…:(

  • Such great tip! My biggest thing I think I have to work on is accepting my God given shape. It’s a process and I know I’m on the right track. Thanks Kelsey!

  • This is how I’m learning to maintain my weight and feel great. I now eat everything. I tossed the scale and I’m finally getting in touch with both hunger and cravings. I have chocolate almost every day with no guilt or weight gain.

  • I’m not going to lie, you said pizza and my stomach started rumbling. I think toxic hunger is a real thing. I remember eating a WFPB diet for a month and simple fruits and vegetables tasted way better. But somehow processed foods made their way back into the house. Thanks for the encouragement to try intuitive eating.

  • I am struggling with binging and restricting for 13 years now. I’ll give IE (and myself) a try, I guess. Time for change. Thanks a lot for this video! <3

  • I really needed this video. Thank you! So thankful that I found you on YouTube! You have been a great help for me and have helped me to not be so afraid of therapy and find a therapist.

  • Any comment about people who have lost hunger cues? I’ve been nearly ten years free of my ED, but my hunger cues never returned. I always just remind myself to eat at random intervals throughout the day.

  • How do you deal with cravings outside of physical hunger? I feel kind of still restricted when I can’t have something because I’m not hungry, in a similar way calorie counting made me feel restricted:(

  • I hope you liked the video <3 i also made another video on metabolism, and how our bodies work! Watch it if you are interested in the topic:) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NudgHQOPnI&t=2s

  • Thank you for posting this! Just the right time:) I eat mostly healthy but this past week was so emotional for me and I ate so much food that I cannot really digest properly (gluten & dairy). I will try eating intuitively from now on, I feel like it really will help me ❤ fingers crossed hehe

  • When considering eating healthy, you have to never fall victim to modern fad diet plans. Extreme diets are a danger for your health, especially ones that seriously restrict your every day nutritionary intake. Many of these fad diet plans work for a short time period and then the benefits decrease after a while. It is best to look up Custokebon Secrets on google since it isn’t just another fad diet where you starve yourself.

  • I’ve been vegan for a year now and I try to intuitive eat, I found that twice a month I crave either sushi or boiled eggs… And I go for it! Maybe I should call myself flexivegan… Well, the point is I listen to my body needs:)

  • I’m doing well with not bingeing but I have one of my biggest trigger foods in the house!!!! Ruffles potato chips. I’ve been eating them daily and not bingeing, but I always have to give the leftovers to my dog so I don’t eat the rest:/ I don’t know how to leave them on my plate without completely getting rid of them

  • I don’t have a eating disorder but i have a hard time eating correctly. For example I will fast for 2 days then eat like 1 small meal the third day and sometimes I than will over eat but not binge. A year ago I had lost A LOT of weight and it really worried my family. I’m not sure how to work up to having a better relationship with food.

  • Thank you for this I’m going to try to do this because maybe applying this it’s way easier to accept eating and being okay with it.

  • I really enjoyed this Ted talk, I intend to watch several more times and take notes! So much rings true for me. Thank you. I just shared amongst my friends of all ages because it’s something we all express frustration about.

  • I’m just starting IE and this is very reassuring. I’ve been uncomfortable for a long time, not as fast and strong as I used to be. I’m about 80 lbs overweight with a history of both anorexia as a teen and then binge eating disorder. I’m also an emotional eater. I’ve been through the “eat everything I want” phase and gained even more weight, as expected. I’m trying to eat things that don’t make me feel slow, get headaches, or make my stomach hurt. Foods that make me feel strong instead of lethargic. I’m finally starting to actually crave fresh fruits and leafy greens and that’s just crazy to me! I was feeling a bit guilty for wanting to lose weight, but I’m very tired all the time, bloated, self conscious, and I just feel slow. I miss being strong.

  • this is such a beautiful video! many people should actually watch this, anyway thank you for the wonderful message❤️ love from singapore xx

  • Kati, I was wondering if you could do a video on hypochondriasis, and how to cope with being a hypochondriac. Thanks! Love your vids! I just recently discovered your channel while struggling with this issue.

  • Amazing video, thank you! Awesome tip as well on how to know when to stop eating hahah Absolutely love it, I’m definitely trying this!!! xx

  • I really appreciate this video because I have become consumed with counting macros while I’m carb cycling. I’ve not been enjoying the process and I think this will free me up to enjoy it more. Thank you!

  • Kati I LOVE all your videos I think you’re doing an amazing thing may GOD bless you. I have been listening to your clips for the last half a year and it has really been clarifying some of the most important things in life! I am just wondering is there a difference between eating disorder and disordered eating?

  • So insightful! This method is very refreshing since there are basically no restrictions like diets, I’m gonna remember this next time ��

  • just wanna say thank you sooo much..I don’t know that there’s a video like this..the first video I’ve had watch, it really made me cry so much..felt so relieved that i’m not the only one struggling with parents with mental illness..now I understand better and know what’s my next steps..i’m already so tired filling in other people’s responsibility…my parents and siblings. God bless you and more knowledge and videos to come and to look forward.

  • Dankjewel lieve Silke.
    Voor je eerlijkheid, openheid en alle moeite die je in deze video’s steekt.
    Ik wil je even laten weten dat ze me enorm inspireren en helpen het beste in mezelf naar boven te halen.
    <3

  • I did this with my dietitian. I used to practice this when I was younger and I didnt even know I was practicing it. It was my normal. Until a death in my family happened and from then on, I spiraled. I’m working on it again.

  • This is so true. I Have been dieting for 10 years. I started practising intuitive eating, and I have a major sweet tooth. And now I could care less about having many sweet stuff. I can’t even eat more than 3 cookies whereas when I dieted sweet stuff was all I thought about��

  • I’ve been on the journey of finding when I am hungry and when I am just bored or stressed. I never would have thought of eating when not doing anything else. That is great to know!

  • Why would muscular legs be unattractive? I would think them to be very functional, what if someday you need to move a heavy piano? If somebody has a problem with you being a muscular woman because it make them feel insecure, then I can’t help them. Come on, it’s 2018, people!

  • Yes! Very nice video��❤�� thank you for sharing your thoughts with us! You da best girl, keep it up! Love you, hope you have an amazing day!

  • Missteps are part of the learning process. Not only do setbacks not define you, they are opportunities to grow and learn more about how you and the world work. Rather than focusing on what didn’t work out for you or what’s impossible to change, someone with a growth mindset always stays focused on what’s workable. They focus their attention on the action or the things they can control to get a different outcome next time. To cultivate this mindset in yourself ask yourself 3 questions.1. What works 2.  What didn’t work 3. What can I do differently next time.This great talk seems underappreciated.

  • I ate wayyy too much as a child and ate large adult size meals. Even my uncle called me out on it and I remember that was the first time I got upset over my diet for the first time. I was never brought up to eat healthily so I make my own meals even when I’m back home from university.

  • The thing about sex. Completely brilliant! When I eat too much I feel like hiding, because of feeling uncomfortable at even the thought of sex. You and I both don’t even know how much this video just helped me!!!! God Bless you beautiful lady �� I got into the mentality of dieting 7 years ago when I was over 100lbs heavier and I truly want to find a new way of life. I want to naturally be able to eat enough. Thank-you so much

  • Makes sense…but I may eat oreos and ben and jerry’s for a day or two…lol no but it’s a good rule to eat without distrations too, totally agree:) Great video!

  • This is probably the most encouraging Intuitive eating video on YouTube, and I’ve seen ALOT. For me this was the final push I needed to take the full plunge. I wanna say THANK YOU very much for putting this perfect video together.

    Have a Merry Christmas & a wonderful New Year!!!

    PS: Your eyes are amazing

  • I want to try eating food this way. My doctor said I need to loose weight ASAP. I think that this flexibility is going to work for me. Thanks for the video!:)

  • Hi there, have you thought about this diet plan called the Custokebon Secrets? My friend says it helps people lost plenty of weight. Is that possible? I also noticed numerous excellent review about this diet plan. Thoughts?

  • Right now, intuitive eating sounds impossible and awful to me. My mom’s trying to force me to eat 3 times a day but I barely eat once a day. Maybe one day I’ll be able to eat correctly with intuitive eating! We’ll see. But at the moment I’m pretty desperate

  • This is me right now…..I want to lose weight, I don’t have a specific number, just want to be healthy and feel good. I am new to the intuitive eating and it’s a strange balance…..

  • What about the gut biome, the bacteria that sends signals to our brain to eat certain things? The bacteria is hijacking the brain to get us to eat the things for the bacteria’s survival, not ours.

  • hey i am also thinking about going plant based, i am working very hard for my body, and i am looking toned and athletic. i have always felt like my body is dealing very badly with carbs, like i am better off on a low carb high protein diet, i am also restricting my calories quite a lote, i guess you could say.. i am about 5.6 and 117 pounds.. do you think that i will gain weight on a plant based diet? i am really afaraid of losing all of my accomplishments in my body? did you experience any weight gain??

  • Great information. When I do eat, I do not restrict myself but I try not to eat anything beyond 7p.m. That’s how I was raised so not doing that is really hard.

  • I’m about to start my journey at this outpatient eating disorder clinic for the 3rd time because the other 2 times I didn’t take it seriously I wasn’t ready but now I am because now my binging is out of control I randomly search intuitive eating & find this ��

  • Nice video content! Sorry for the intrusion, I am interested in your opinion. Have you ever tried Dinanlinson Natural Beauty Approach (should be on google have a look)? It is a good one of a kind product for learning what to eat to look younger minus the normal expense. Ive heard some decent things about it and my cooworker at last got amazing results with it.

  • First of all, the quality of this video is amazing! I love the minimalistic set-up and minimal pop-ups. I hope you make more of these types of videos. They help to not overload my brain with pistures and colors but still provide life-savingly useful information!

    Second, I am definitely going to check out this book. I think it will really help me because I’ve been struggling with food lately. I hope I can get my hands on it here in Russia.

  • In quarantine right now…I was able to get still and realize I had a insane desire for oranges and apples. I could not get enough of them. Their juices and the fruit itself..its all the things right now. Everybody says it too much sugar, too many carbs. Newsflash I get sick and very mean without carbs. I can not go that low carb, keto way. My body didn’t like it. I quit eating fruit for years. Now I can’t be without it. I want to be healthy for myself and look the best I can. Be my best. Thank you for this. I just heard someone I follow say they are doing this way if eating because its not a diet. I’ve been on a diet since I was 8. Mom gave me pills to cut my appetite, seriously she did. In this season of pandemic I’ll use it to help myself with more mindful eating, and listening to what my body wants. ��������

  • Hey Kati, love your videos ^^ Could you make a video about Dissociative Fugue please? Or maybe recommend some helpful literature?:3

  • I found your video very interesting, thank you for making it!
    I agree with all of what you said, I just have a lil questo’
    When you’re used to eating certain types of food all the time, how is your body supposed to figure out that there are other ways to get the nutrients it wants and needs? Would you suggest to force oneself to go out there and try other types of food?

    I am a vegetarian, I don’t eat meat and fish but I decided to allow myself a lapse every month, so once in a while I might eat sushi’s or a fat burger
    Would you suggest that I should listen more often to the little voice telling me to eat meat and fish when I actually have reasons to not want to?

  • Hey now, strong legs are a GOOD thing! I actually like the idea of mental love letters. I’m not fighting an eating disorder, but have had my share of negative thoughts about myself, and even as a runner (“You’re so slow!” “You needed a walk break AGAIN?” “You don’t train hard enough…”). Those “love letters” can be a mental game changer, even if it’s just the thought of “I love that this run is done and I made it through. Thank you body for allowing this. Now, let’s shower and recover! Love you!”

  • I have to keep my weight scale. I can think I’ve gained 5 pounds and jump on the scale to find out I’ve actually lost a pound. I also practice mindful eating and it’s helping me to lose weight but like most women I have “ugly days” or ” fat days” where unless I see the numbers on the scale I’m convinced I’m gaining. The scale has to stay.

  • I thought this would be pretty much all the other videos I’ve seen, but this was actually so helpful. It actually had helpful practical tips

  • Its cool to see a therapist talking about this. I thought it sounded kinda weird when random people on the internet would kinda talk about it.

  • All this sounds very nice and beautiful, what do u do when u have food intolerances and almost everything hurts your stomach? Lactose, gluten, etc. Like u have IBS or some other chronic condition like Chrones? It’s nice when u say: “I can eat ice-cream cuz that’s what I feel like” but I know for a fact that if I eat it I ll b in the toilet all day long and my stomach will hurt so bad! How can I eat intuitively when I know for a fact if I’m craving something it’s gonna hurt me so bad if I eat it?

  • oooh shit this is gonna take so much willpower. waiting for REAL hunger…. it’s gonna be hard for me. because i am dealing with daily anxiety, so it throws off my hunger cues and makes me want to eat to relief stress.. it has caused me to binge and find it really hard to listen to my body to STOP eating and when to eat.
    but i really want to learn this. you have inspired me. thank you.

  • Hey There! Thank you for this useful video. By the way, I notice lots of people keep on talking about Custokebon Secrets (search on google), but I’m not sure if it’s good. Have you tried Custokebon Secrets? I have heard some incredible things about it and my buddy lost a lot of weight with it, but she refuses to tell me:(

  • I really struggle figuring out where the line between being satiated and being full so I really appreciate your tips! Especially the one about sex. Even though you may have felt shy sharing that one I thought that one was helpful so I really appreciate you going out on a limb to share it!

  • I needed this. Thank you. Been becoming obsessed with losing weight and keep gaining the same weight I lost because I hate dieting. It makes me truly unhappy and obsessive. I eat super healthy but I know I snack when I’m not really hungry. Gonna try this.

  • Love the video! I don’t believe in diets and restrictions either, it just leads to binge eating afterwards. Intuitive eating is the way! ��

  • I’ve actually been trying this for the past 2 weeks or so. Just working on listening to my body and what it wants. When I’m hungry. When I’m full. And it’s actually so much more easier to control what you eat.

  • This is NOT intuitive eating. This is the hunger and fullness diet. Real intuitive eating is about accepting your body exactly where it’s at and accepting that you might gain weight. And it’s about eating like a normal person. If you are trying to lose weight while doing this then that’s fine but it’s NOT intuitive eating.

  • Do any of you know how to join/register on her website? I finished the registration form and they emailed me a link for activation but when I click the link it asks me for an activation code? I didn’t get one so I am very confused how to activate my account. Thanks in advance for your help!

  • I am so happy you mentioned the disclaimer about highly processed foods. Intuitive eating is such a great way to trust your body, but if you are actually addicted to bad foods you might still make the wrong choices and over eat. This was a great video outlining different ways of approaching food. I’m a pretty big fan of intermittent fasting right now (16/8) but i eat totally unrestricted (vegan of course!) during my eating window. Feeling great so far:)

  • You are right on target, Colleen. I spent DECADES in the prison of food rules, deprivation, and disordered eating.
    Keep posting vids. You have a valuable message and great delivery. Peace.

  • i ate a lot today and i am thinking of having another snack even though its almost 11pm

    i just want to make sure its not that i am sleepy so i am going to try to sleep first

    i also ate a lot today i had an egg wheat wrap for lunch

    dinner was a pork appetizer that was pretty big then a chicken meal and a carrot cake desert (no nuts in it so thats why i ordered that one and it had cream cheese for the icing)

    i was up at about 6-7am today as well so that could be why and i walked pretty much nonstop

    i am an intuitive eater but sometimes i can eat instead of sleep so that is what i dont want to do

    thx for another amazing ha bisky video i really hope on sept 4th my life changes and i can live in cali

  • if i decide to intuitively eat, what do i do if im over my carbohydrate intake without knowing? people say that when you go over, you use the extra carbs for fat storage?? something like that. im new to this fitness thing..

  • I love that you didn’t mention any certain “food” and there’s not a lot of hateful meat eater vs vegan comments. I’m gonna whisper this in the wind “anybody who is awake and does real thorough research into the animal product industry and still eats animal products cannot be considered to be human to me I’m sorry it’s too sickening and horrific I know the best way to spread veganism isn’t meat eater shaming but it’s the only way when you see animals as the equals they are and the exploitation of them as sadistic torture and murder” Please the world will look back and frown upon when we ate meat do your part make the change to veganism quicker and help save part of tge world over night or nights this is a lot more serious once you see the bigger picture you’ll understand we can do this and quickly.

  • what does it mean if i fit all the criteria for bulimia but i very rarely binge and ive never purged?
    im in the time when i feel disgusting even after snacking and if i eat over 1200 calories i feel terrible and I keep denying thr fact that I’m hungry because I don’t want to eat. I also really think that I could lose weight and that I shouldnt even eat. I only eat just enough so that my family doesn’t suspect anything wrong with me. (I’m overweight)

  • I have been trying intuitive eating for two years. It has helped me to feel normal eating all food. I no longer restrict. After my pregnancy I feel uncomfortable in my body, I have aches and no energy. Also because of the no energy k would order a lot of food instead of cooking. I would even order in when I really didn’t want to. So I set a challenge for myself to cook for two weeks instead of ordering in. I can still have pizza or a burger, but I just don’t order it anymore. I also started playful exercise and I feel so much better. I am going to continue this.

  • Thank you for talking about this topic, its such a shame that intuitive eating has been lost. It is true that children intuitively eat, but it also has a lot of influence with the parents and cultural economic background. I grew up overweight/ obese due to my parents giving me junk food and growing up into a poor economic community, with also having mental issues that I chose to control with food. I have now naturally cured myself and getting back to my natural weight by mindfully eating and choosing foods that nourish your body. Which I feel is the most important. To actually listen to your body and choose the option that is going to nourish.

  • This video made me kinda emotional! I’m very used to chugging water when I feel hunger, or not feeling it at all when I have ate too much (I currently struggle with ednos). I’m trying to recover. Thank you so much, I’m going to watch this video every single day.

  • Thank you for this kati, I’m entering eating disorder recovery for the third time (third time lucky) and it’s important to remember not to rush ahead i’ve got a lot to learn and i am so grateful that my body is still powering on after all i’ve done to it.

  • I’ve always tried to tear the connection between food and reducing stress, but nothing helped until I become vegan) I don’t know how it works ��

  • I’m a pretty healthy eater. Today I just had 2 slices of pizza, some chips and some dessert today. I don’t feel bad at all. I deserved it. Mainly because I actually wanted it.��

  • But what about treats? Fancying a treat which is not physical hunger? When you’re a child and you fancy a chocolate bar you just have it. That’s not eating with an emotional reason…

  • I eat almost 100% whole foods, avoid most times oil, refined sugar, added salt with a few exceptions. And for the first time in my life I don’t need to pay attention to my portions in order to not gain weight. I eat in abundance without checking the calories, even when I exceed them I don’t gain weight anymore ��

  • I have really been experiencing this myself lately. I feel like I am not the same as everyone else who is trying to lose weight. I found something that is working for me and I am now down 11lbs in 3 month by just eating when I am truly hungry and not other times.

  • This video really opened my eyes and helped me understand what I’m going through. You’re so awesome and I love what you do keep doing it!!! This helped me so much ❤️

  • I’ve been restricting and binging for so long now, I just want to develop a healthy relationship with food again. I think many of us have been beating ourselves up at night for over eating, saying how we will “make it up in the morning”. I’m reading “Just eat it” by Laura Thomas, and I would highly recommend it. There is a lot of brainwashing done in the media and our society. I was always a chubby kid; I got a lot of hurtful comments. I never thought I was a disordered eater until I read the book. I think many of us can learn from it. I just want to say: IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT. You have been told it’s “healthy” to count calories, do “vegan-keto diets” when you have no tolerances or ethical restrictions. We as a society have all gone mad and we call it #fitspo. Stress and disordered eating is way worse for you than a couple extra pounds! And you’re still beautiful!

  • Thanks Kati this video was very helpful I strugle because I was under weight all the way up until early 20s i found it easy to starve myself when i hit 23 i got on mental health meds and got over weight they made me constantly hungry but then switched meds and got really underweight again then changed meds and got a drinking problem and got big again. Im now about 5 pounds over weight and am trying this method for a while i went from starving myself to having binge nights cause i was just so hungry. I find now that im trying this im not gaining or loosing plus im not getting really dizzy after my workout sessions. I think iv platoed im a size 10 i was having troble excepting i dont think il be a size 1 ever again i think because thats were my metabolism is. But after watching this it made me think im healthy now im very active im more stable i always have energy and im not almost fainting when im really active. So thats something to be happy about and thankful for. I have to keep telling myself that:). I love your videos and am learning lots from watching them.:)

  • Before I started watching: Intuitive eating is listening to your body what it needs and providing it.
    After watching: Well…I’m doing a lot of it already. And if I want a chocolate (my body doesn’t want it very often though), I eat it. It’s nice. But…the dieting thing worries me…I don’t care about my weight (as long as I feel healthy, I’m fine with having a few pounds more than my “ideal weight”), what I’m worried about is that I’m a vegan. That’s not dieting, right? Just being a vegan I mean? Because that would seriously suck.

  • Thanks for sharing your story! It really helped me as I used to have an eating disorder. I’m looking forward to giving intuitive eating a try now ☺️✌��

  • What do you do when a parent makes it hard to start being comfortable with your body. My mom weighs less than me but is shorter so she carries it different. She is constantly making negative remarks about her weight and it make me feel worse than I do. I have asked her to stop and told her why but she told me I’m taller so I look better (not that much taller). I told her that doesn’t matter and it’s not enough of a difference. I know she has issues with her weight and she used to see a therapist about a year ago but she won’t stop saying things that make me feel worse than I already do.

  • I hope I can get to the point where you are at. I have been struggling with binge eating and restricting/counting calories for three years now and It is just such a vicious cycle that I feel so trapped in.. But I think the only escape is to stop counting calories and intuitively eat. Its sad that It even got to the place where Im not sure how to. This video helped a lot thank you for posting this:)

  • Realtionship with food is the same as any healthy relationship ship, give what you get and get what you give. How does the food make you feel physically and emotionally and cognitively. If it’s a positive return put more effort into preparing the food that makes you feel the best. Also don’t be a xenophobia or racist and be scared to try different foods and diets or think one is superior to the other, you’d be surprised which foods your BODY AND MIND prefer. Listen to how your body feels and what your mind think about the food and do your back round research and how they’ve treated their exes.

    Lastly just like any relationship, it might not last a life time. When you stop seeing the benefits move on, don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened. exploring until you find your soul plate…mate.

    And if you wanna be abstainant or celibate, go ahead. Just don’t complain about #sexculture or #relationshipculture #loveculture When you fuck up and start fucking everyone or wanking everywhere

  • Anybody tried the Custokebon Secrets (do a search on google)? We have noticed numerous awesome things about this popular diet plan program.

  • #katiFAQ
    Hey Kati, I would love to hear your thoughts on if it’s okay to break up with someone, because you need to work on yourself?

  • Hi, I’m well over 350 pounds and I feel completely hopeless. My desperation to be healthy enough to move without pain and play with my kids overwhelms me. I have done a lot of work on the eating disorder aspect with a mentor and therapist but since the Corona virus I haven’t been able to or afford to meet with them. I feel lost. My eating disorder mentor helped me a ton to overcome food rules and restriction. I really dont feel I have any specific food rules or fears anymore. I used to have tons! But, she would always tell me there is no healthy way to lose weight and even thinking about weight loss was unhealthy. I feel like I have to do something! I really need help! I haven’t weighed myself in over a year but I do know I am busting out of my size 24 plus jean’s. I cant just keep eating whatever I want and sitting on my butt and pretending I’m just going to magically drop into the perfect size. I need real help!

  • That’s what i’ve been doing all my life haha ���� I’ve never believed in restrictions and diets, I think that our body knows the best for us

  • What if I never get physically hungry anymore? I struggle with binge eating with a past anorexia mindset that I’m trying to get over

  • 1The new habits you want to create need to be intrinsically enjoyable.

    2Cultivate awareness around your thoughts, actions and emotions(buzzwordmindfulness).

    3Develop a growth mindset.

    What work,What didn’t work,What to do differently to make it work next time. These questions can change your mindset from ‘fixed’ to ‘growth’.

  • Beautifully broken down. I’ve started to thank the old body for a few things. Seeing and hearing and such. I don’t have a terrifically well oiled machine of a body but it’s there and it’s okay. Trying ‘scary’ foods is turning out to be quite a delight. My digestion is coping and I’m taking it slowly as my fear is getting stomach migraines. I know that I crave all sorts of things and they are all diverse and wonderful. Thank you Kati! Thank you Sean. xoxoxoxox
