How Intuitive Eating Fits in an Eating Structure

Defining the Difference Between Dieting and Intuitive Eating


Kim Hynes Notable Quotes

“With intuitive eating, ­we can really slow down by looking at our stress, looking at our sleep, looking at our activity, but also looking at our mind. Are we changing our negative thoughts into positive thoughts? When we say we want food, and this week, we want to get chips, what are we really wanting?”
                                                – Kim Hynes

Episode Summary

When we want to lose weight, oftentimes, we subscribe to a diet. Many of these diets have foods we can and can’t eat, and even timeframes of when we’re “allowed” to eat. And this, understandably, can feel restrictive for many of us.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to health and wellness coach Kim Hynes to shed some light on intuitive eating and how we can use it as a less restrictive tool to lose weight and take control of our health.
