‘Intuitive Eating will not only change your relationship with food; it may change your life.’
- Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch, authors of 'Intuitive Eating'
With the toxic messaging that we receive everyday about what we should be eating, how to eat, how much to eat and when, it's very easy to feel like the control isn’t in our hands anymore.
Diet culture, weight conversations and body shapes fill our eyes and ears every day and some people equate every thing they consume with a points value or what has to be done in the gym to make that next bite justified. All the pleasure has been stripped out of one of the most pleasurable experiences: eating. But can we trust ourselves without the diet or 'lifestyle choice' dictating to us? Where and why has that trust gone and how do we rebuild it?
The Chachi Power Project wanted to create this special evening to explore Intuitive Eating and has asked Tali from Tali’s Yoga, who is a graduate from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and an advocate for Intuitive Eating, to talk about the basics.
We will discuss emotional eating, body cues, mindful eating, having an unrestrictive approach to food alongside making a commitment to do the right thing for your body. In essence Intuitive Eating is about rebuilding the trust between your mind, emotions and your body.
We'll do all of this while walking the talk: we'll be eating a scrumptious communal dinner together in a gorgeous location! Let’s get together to chat, laugh, eat, drink and be merry- while also learning how to take back control of our own bodies and the food that goes into them. We invite you to join us!
Ticket price includes a delicious meal (all food intolerances taken into consideration) and one glass of wine, beer or soft drink of your choice.
