Intuitive Eating: Who Can and Who Shouldn’t?
Sheikh Nadir Siddiquee
Intuitive eating is not a type of Diet. It is eating as per your own wish without any guilt respecting fullness and enjoying the meal. Who can do it? - If you have been dieting for years - If you are closer to your Goal Physique - If you have a basic knowledge of Nutrition to determine the Caloric value and macro distribution of a particular meal - If you realize the difference between internal fullness and emotional fullness - If you can adjust mindful quantities to achieve your goals - If you can watch your protein intake in every meal Who shouldn’t do it? - If you are a Binge or emotional eater - If you do not have an idea of the nutritional profile of a meal - If you do not understand the Basics of Nutrition - If you are preparing for some Contest or Photoshoot - If you are not very active - If you are too bad at guessing Calories of a food item - If you are too impatient about your Goals Note: You need to build a healthy relationship with Food. Start with studying what you usually eat. Know that Protein and Carbs yield 4 Calories per gm and Fat yields 9 Calories per gm.
