If you're sick of yo-yo dieting, stuck in a cycle of losing and gaining weight, and feeling so restricted that you can't eat your favourite foods (especially cultural or family recipes), then you'll resonate with this TikTok video posted by Dalina Soto, MA, RDN, LDN, founder of Your Latina Nutritionist. In it she shares the 10 benefits to intuitive eating and giving up dieting forever. Soto told POPSUGAR, "People are usually so confused about intuitive eating, like it's eating candy and sweets all the time. But I am here to tell you that intuitive eating is a self-care model that allows for you to take control of your health."
Intuitive eating is a way of eating where you stop restrictive dieting, and instead are encouraged to listen to your body, eat the foods you love, and not obsess over calories and carbs. With intuitive eating you can build a healthier relationship with food, while finding peace from the pressures food and dieting may have put on you in the past. You'll also reap the health benefits Soto mentions in the video above, such as less emotional eating, no longer being afraid of eating cultural foods, and less binge eating.
