Nutritionist: Ditch diets for intuitive eating - WCAX

"It's dieting that has caused you to feel out of control around food," Rumsey said.

She believes the better way to health and wellness is intuitive eating, which means trusting the signals from your body rather than external dieting rules.

"Our body biologically is wired to know how much we need to eat and what we need to eat. And as we get older, we tend to lose sight of that," Rumsey said.

Rumsey gives clients permission to eat what they want, as long as there's a healthy balance. The program is not for weight loss. But the idea is if you stop restricting the foods you crave, you're less likely to binge.
