The Neuroscience of Intuitive Eating
In Episode 125, I discuss the neuroscience of intuitive eating. Intuitive eating is associated with a healthier BMI, less symptoms of depression, less probability for disordered eating, higher self-esteem, and more positive body image. Intuitive eating is a form of adaptive eating that relies on our skill of interoception: being able to observe our internal sensations like hunger. Intuitive eating focuses upon us eating when physically hungry and not due to emotional or environmental cues. Two-thirds of us struggle with interoception. I get into the neuroscience of how we can become more interoceptive so that we might eat more intuitively and to have a healthier relationship with food.
