Trust Your Body

Our bodies give us very specific cues to help us regulate our food and nutrient intake.  The problem is that some of us begin ignoring those cues at some point in our life.  Either as a child when a parent thinks that a child has surely eaten enough, and tries to tell them they can’t possibly be hungry…repeatedly.  That child begins to doubt the signals that they know as hunger or the signals that indicate they are not quite satisfied… Read more »
