Notes & Quotes: 

“Avoiding the lifestyle of dieting is an essential step in learning how to have a healthier relationship with food” 

“The goal is to develop a ‘sustainable’ eating strategy and then apply it to our busy lives”

“Intuitive eating allows us to eat when hungry, and requires we learn to ‘listen’ to our bodies”

“Our food choices should be made without guilt or shame”

“Key stress risks for unhealthy eating often occur in the ‘transitions’ stages of our lives. Key transitions include moving from Junior High school to High School, and then to College, later its during post-partum and menopause.”

“Eating disorders are related to cultural and body image, our culture tells us to be popular and happy we must be ‘thin'”
