Nutrition plays an obvious role in your physical health. But did you know that food choices affect your mental and emotional state as well?
This nutritional interplay among minds, bodies, and environments is what I call embodied nutrition because it abandons food rules in favor of giving our bodies a voice in our eating decisions.
Moreover, this strategy has nothing to do with counting calories or following fad diets. Instead, it focuses on nourishing your body-mind and making thoughtful choices that support your health from a non-diet approach.
In short, it’s a form of gentle nutrition that honors your authentic appetite, mood, and food preferences, which are always in flux.
This article looks at the science and philosophy behind embodied nutrition and explores how our food choices affect various aspects of health, from energy levels and digestion to mood and mental clarity with some practical tips to put this approach into action.
Read on to discover the surprising connections between what you eat and how you feel, improve body trust, and let go of diets for good.
