Welcome to the third and final installment of our three-part series all about intuitive eating and PCOS. Intuitive eating is a self-care nutrition framework that can help you let go of dieting and have a more peaceful relationship with food.
It’s not uncommon to hear someone say that they tried intuitive eating and it didn’t work for them. Have you been there? Maybe you just really felt like you couldn’t put your favorite foods down, or you noticed your symptoms getting worse without food rules or restriction. Maybe you were especially concerned about your weight and couldn’t let go of the scale as you tried to be more flexible with food. If you can relate to these then this episode is for you!
In today’s episode, we are focusing on the four most common obstacles that you may face with PCOS and intuitive eating and how to overcome them.
In today’s episode, we cover:
- How to deal with the desire to eat all the things when you stop dieting
- When to start incorporating “gentle nutrition” with PCOS
- Why working through body image distress is important with intuitive eating
- Some things to think about if you’ve tried intuitive eating in the past but felt like it didn’t work for you
