Just What is Normal Eating?

Normal eating is……….

………not eating the exact same way everyday, but rather balancing eating habits out over several days.

………feeling hungry and then eating until satisfied.

………trusting your body's hunger and satiety cues and responding to them.

………realizing you owe your body daily fuel and nutrients to keep healthy, but without keeping a running "food calculator" going in your brain or being too restrictive.

………eating, or not eating, because you want to, not because you "should".

You control normal eating; it does not control you.
