  • We know, generally, what humans need to be healthy. But there are details that vary from person to person. Mindful & intuitive eating help you uncover what works for you
  • Having energy and feeling well feels good. Mindful eating allows you to notice the habits that energize you — and which ones don’t.
  • When you force yourself to use “willpower” and white-knuckle your way to change your habits, it gets harder and harder over time. Mindfulness get easier over time. It feels good and makes you want more!
