But… often these programmes impose a top down approach, are impossible to follow over the long term, and end up causing guilt and anxiety leading to overconsumption and binge eating.
Based on this observation, I took a different route… I chose Intuitive Eating which I believe is the solution to eating disorders.
I have realised that strict dieting rules have a negative impact on health. On the other hand intuitive eating, which unconsciously allows a person to listen to their physiological, nutritional and emotional needs, promises better health by maintaining their natural weight.
As a practitioner of Le G.R.O.S, I am able to give skills and tools to help people listen to their internal hunger cues, their appetite, and accept their emotional need to eat. I am opposed to the dictates of thinness, against dieting, in favour of intuitive and mindful eating, in favour of self-acceptance and self-compassion.
