Some time ago I signed up for the ‘Diet Survivors’ newsletter and I receive it every so often. It’s another branch of the growing No Diet awareness out there that also encompasses legends like Geneen Roth and Susie Orbach. The newsletters focus on a different aspect of life without diets in a very gentle and affirming way and this latest one caught my eye because it started with the title ‘TUNE IN’.
As you might already know, Tune In is the first of the 10 Beyond Chocolate principles. To Beyond Chocolaters it means learning how to be in touch with our bodies so that we know what we want to eat, when, how much etc (I know there’s more to it than that, but it’s a useful place to start). Tuning In helps us to help ourselves and gives us a way to connect back to ourselves, rather than always looking outside ourselves for guidance around food and our bodies.
