“If you aren’t hungry when you start eating, how do you know when to stop?”
~ Michelle May, MD Am I Hungry?® Mindful Moment
This profound question gets to the heart of what it means to eat intuitively using mindfulness. Mindful-Intuitive eating is the practice of using innate hunger and fullness (satiety) cues to guide eating rather than eating or restricting food because of situational or emotional reasons.
To accept your body means to:

(b) have an awareness of your body’s needs and actively care for those needs, and
(c) protect your body from unrealistic body image ideals that permeate our culture, while undermining body-esteem.
