This is the fourth principle in the IE + Scripture Series and if you read Monday’s post, you’ll know this is one of my favorite Intuitive Eating principles. The gospel has SO much to say on the topic.
So without further ado, the fourth principle of Intuitive Eating is “Challenge the Food Police”
The authors of the book write this about the third principle:
Scream a loud “NO” to thoughts in your head that declare you’re “good” for eating minimal calories or “bad” because you ate a piece of chocolate cake. The Food Police monitor unreasonable rules that dieting has created. The police station is housed deep in your psyche, and its loud speaker shouts negative barbs, hopeless phrases and guilt-provoking indictments. Chasing the Food Police away is a critical step in returning to Intuitive Eating.
