#16: Can I Lose Weight with Intuitive Eating?
In this episode, we’re answering a frequently asked question: Can I lose weight with intuitive eating? Abbie walks us through a way to think about and reflect on the desire to lose weight (her answer might surprise you!) and how to unpack what is beneath the surface of this question. We discuss how it can be approached within the intuitive eating and anti-diet paradigms, and provide practical tips on moving through it.
