Nourish Every Body: Mindful & Intuitive Eating
You may have heard the terms “mindful eating” and “intuitive eating” and wondered they mean. Vincci Tsui, RD, an Anti-Diet Dietitian and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, explains the differences this way:
Whereas mindful eating is about being present in the eating experience in a non-judgmental way, intuitive eating is a broader framework that goes outside the eating experience, encouraging people to actively reject external diet messaging and change their relationship with food and their body.
Lisa Carlson, MS, RDN, LDN, Northwestern’s Campus Dietitian Nutritionist, writes about Mindful Eating this week on the Northwestern Dining Wellness and Sustainability Blog. Be sure to subscribe to the blog!

Health at Every Size® (HAES®) is both an approach and a movement. A core tenet of HAES® is that “measures of body weight/size do not accurately reflect an individual’s health status and often lead to ineffective interventions rather than efforts that enhance health and wellness.” Both mindful eating and intuitive eating are in line with the Health at Every Size® approach.
