What Does a Weekend of Intuitive Eating Look Like?

Since I’ve been eating intuitively for a couple of months, I thought I’d share what I ate this past weekend. I’m pretty excited about how my progress has been going with intuitive eating, I’ve been a lot more conscious about when I’m hungry versus grabbing something because I’m bored and I haven’t been eating (as much) just to eat.

I also jumped on the scale just to see and I’m only about a pound up from when I stopped counting macros which is amazing considering I was eating a lot at the beginning just because I paying attention to my body cues as closely as I am now.

Saturday

I ended up not having a protein smoothie after my five mile run, I had breakfast not too long before it and I wasn’t that hungry after my run so I just had a little bit earlier lunch after I was done with my run and grocery shopping. I did have an afternoon snack of a protein smoothie bowl with mini chocolate chips and coconut flakes. Dinner was later than usual since I took a long nap after the smoothie bowl but I wasn’t too hungry so it was on the lighter side (with lots of vegetables).

Breakfast: Oatmeal with mixed berries, egg whites and peanut butter plus coffee with creamer

Post-run: Smoothie with mixed berries, protein powder and spinach

Lunch: Diced potatoes, bell pepper and egg whites with cheddar cheese and lettuce mix with Bolthouse Dressing
