When I discovered intuitive eating, a philosophy based on creating permission rather than restriction around food, my entire life changed. I learned to be patient with myself around what I eat, rather than judge myself. I got in touch with what my body truly desires, which it turns out is not to eat constantly without looking up. The lessons learned in food transferred directly to other areas of my life. As Geneen Roth, one of the inspirations for the project explains it, food became a “doorway” to understanding the parts of my life that were not working, which I had been carefully avoiding by eating.
