#6 February Q&A
Answering the below questions from you guys. I hope you enjoy! For the post version, click here. “How do you handle or how would you handle your kids around family that does not do intuitive eating? Such as extended family members with really unhealthy behaviors around food (very into diets, overly controlled portions, passing up meals, etc).” "How can I get truly started with intuitive eating? I feel like I kind of follow the principles, but want to get better at listening to my hunger cues.” “Can you clarify the benefits of structured/mechanical eating and how it compares to IE?” “How do you keep social media boundaries and make it a positive place?” “How much should I pay attention to food? I want to nourish myself and get enough fruits and veggies, but I don’t want to focus on it too much. Where’s the balance?” "Can you discuss intuitive eating while pregnant? I know there are guidelines about gaining 25-30 lbs when pregnant, but I’d love to hear more non-diet tips for navigating a healthy relationship with food while pregnant."
