Intuitive eating. It is how we were made, yet…. because of the effects of sin on my body, I have digestive issues. These issues make intuitive eating hard; sometimes the issues are so painful that intuitive eating seems impossible. Don’t get me wrong. I love intuitive eating, and I don’t and won’t ever actively promote calorie counting or food tracking or even food journaling (unless you have to) but when you have a family history of digestive issues, it can be hard to know when you’re actually full or actually hungry.
This is not pity party for Em of course. Lately, my digestion has actually been really good (much better than normal), yet i want to talk and share about why digestive issues can make the concept of intuitive eating even harder.
