Eat intuitively and give up diets for good

Published on July 11, 2014

Nancy Kuppersmith, a registered dietitian with UofL Physicians, speaks on eating intuitively at a Lunch and Learn. The event was held in the Health Care Outpatient Center in downtown Louisville.

What is intuitive eating? According to, a resource used by Kuppersmith, "intuitive eating is an approach that teaches you how to create a healthy relationship with your food, mind and body--where you ultimately become the expert of your own body. You learn how to distinguish between physical and emotional feelings, and gain a sense of body wisdom. It's also a process of making peace with food---so that you no longer have constant "food worry" thoughts. It's knowing that your health and your worth as a person do not change, because you ate a food that you had labeled as 'bad' or 'fattening'.
