Many of you in our industry have heard about Intuitive Eating.
It is a nutrition philosophy about ditching diets and choosing health promoting behaviors, first created by Registered Dietitians Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch.
You may already be practicing with an Intuitive Eating approach, or you may be curious about what Intuitive Eating is!
The fact is, many dietitians use an Intuitive Eating approach with clients who struggle with chronic up and down dieting patterns to truly help their clients find food peace and develop a healthy relationship with food. More people understand that diets don’t work, that restrictive eating is not helping. Clients want Intuitive Eating as a way to get past disordered eating and make changes to their health and well being that are lasting.
Happy clients = passionate providers + more business to your private practice!
This statement is why the industry is changing. Dietitians and healthcare professionals are seeing long lasting changes in their clients because of this approach.
As dietitians, sometimes we are taught that “we have all the answers”. How many times were you told in school to “educate the client to do x, y, z” or worse- “this client is non-compliant”. Every single client is an individual and there is no universal “answer” to a client’s health problems.
Intuitive Eating is rooted in a client-centered approach. This is not only good for the client, it’s good for YOU, the provider! Intuitive eating has a foundation that is based on flexibility and compassion. This type of counseling as been proven to be more beneficial to clients.
I know dietitians out there need support on how to implement these concepts into their practice. The most common question I get is “How do I grow my private practice specializing in Intuitive Eating?” Well, wonder no more, I am going to show you!
