While Intuitive Eating, includes mindful eating, that term was not in the public venacular, when the first edition of Intuitive Eating was published in 1995. Consequently, we used the term “conscious eating” to describe the process of being aware while eating. (I actually prefer the term mindful eating, because it’s less ambigous). I really wanted to explore the topic(s) of Mindful Eating vs. Intuitive Eating.
And this is by no means and exhaustive blog post about it either Albeit still a bit of a lengthy one. As mentioned, intuitive eating includes mindful eating in it’s broader philosophy. I feel that both are practices that encourage normal eating and more positive relationships with food, as they encompass listening to your body, respecting it’s hunger and fullness cues, and recognizing that there is not a right or wrong way to eat.
Whereas mindful eating is about being present in the eating experience in a non-judgmental way, intuitive eating is a broader framework that goes outside the eating experience, encouraging people to actively reject external diet messaging and change their relationship with food and their body. Intuitive Eating. Intuitive eating, much like mindful eating is about being in flow.
It’s about respecting and honoring internal cues from the body to determine what and how much to eat versus external factors such as the clock or what the rules are of a particular diet plan. On the other hand, if your concerns aren’t specifically targeted by intuitive eating, or you are interested in a more reflective, less structured. This also means that the real goal of intuitive eating is to LET GO around food. I’ll say that again: Unlike mindfulness, which encourages conscious and non-judgmental connection with your food, intuitive eating is about letting go around food. Intuitive eating encourages us to discover joy in eating and give ourselves the freedom and permission to find satisfaction in what we eat.
Mindful eating can be hard to learn. It can be a frustrating process, as with anything new. And by opening curiosity and awareness, we might notice things that don’t make us particularly happy.
And it involves eating without judgement. Intuitive Eating, on the other hand, is the term coined by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in 1995 when they published the first edition of their book Intuitive Eating (aff link). Yep, this ain’t no fad diet or flash in the pan way of eating! Intuitive Eating has been around for over 20 years.
Mindful eating is the non-judgemental process of paying attention to the eating experience with awareness of the subconscious reasons behind your hunger (emotions, comfort, schedule, habits, etc.) Intuitive eating, on the other hand, is a bit broader.
