Popular Online Dietitians Who Represent Intuitive Eating


Thinking about specializing in intuitive eating? In today's video, we'll explore this approach and its representation by dietitians. Intuitive eating, popularized by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch since 1995, emphasizes developing a healthy relationship with food and honoring your body's signals.
