Intuitive Eating After Weight Loss Surgery Mini Course
Everything you need to know about finding food peace after weight loss surgery
The process of weight loss surgery can be triggering for obsessive behaviors around food and body image. In many cases, these behaviors are actively promoted by health care professionals in the name of "health". Trying to develop a healthy relationship around food after this experience can be especially difficult.
The intuitive eating model promotes the empowerment of internal wisdom when it comes to food, it questions the dominant weight-focused paradigm, and introduces an alternative that brings feeling good in your body into the spotlight.
This course dives into the basic foundation of the intuitive eating model and supplies personalized recommendations for implementing the approach after weight loss surgery. Intuitive eating relies heavily on connecting to your body, finding peace within your body, and tuning into internal cues. After weight loss surgery, each and every one of these variables can be difficult. This course will help you to figure out what this means to you.
