How To Eat Whatever You Want Without Gaining Weight

Imagine a lifestyle where you can eat whatever you want without gaining weight. You only eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full.

This method is called intuitive eating and it’s a way of eating that helps you to have a healthy relationship with food and you body. Wouldn’t it be amazing to be able to eat whatever you want without worrying about it.

1. Stop dieting and start living
Diets don’t work, if you want to lose weight and keep it off or just want to be a healthier version of yourself, you have to make a lifestyle change. Diets give you rules about when and what you should eat.

2. Eat when you’re hungry
Hunger is your body’s way of telling you to eat. Nourish your body by eating when  mild hunger kicks in and eat before you get ravenous.  Waiting until you’re extremely hungry may lead you to overeat.

3. Make Peace with Food
Slow down and eat slowly, without distraction. Give yourself unconditional permission to eat. If it’s a piece of chocolate or cake, go ahead and enjoy it without guilt

4. Don’t expect yourself to eat perfectly
Stop categorizing food as good or bad.  Don’t expect yourself to eat perfectly — it’s not possible or even necessary.

5. Stop eating when you’re full
Learn to identify when you’re comfortably full. It’s the point when you’re no longer hungry and the food you’re eating is losing its enjoyability.

6. Make eating enjoyable
Eating should be an enjoyable, satisfying experience. Make it a special moment, set the table and sit down to eat. Value quality over quantity.

7. Don’t use food to honor your feelings 
Eating shouldn’t be your main source of comfort. There are other ways to deal with your feelings that are not food-related. Take a bath, call a friend, write down your feelings or take a walk.

8. Respect Your Body
Accept and respect your body as it is now, whatever shape and size you are.

9. Exercise for your health 
If you’re exercising just to burn calories, then it becomes boring. Exercise for health and energy, not to earn the right to eat or pay penance for eating a “bad food.”

10. Honor Your Health
When you start realizing how food actually tastes and how your body feels when you eat, then you’ll also start noticing that some foods make you feel better than others.

  1. Really good post. I love all the points on this. I think people need to start realising that if they want to become healthier, they should opt for a change in lifestyle rather than dieting. My main problem is eating without feeling hungry and sometimes when I’m just relaxing in the evening I just eat because I feel like I should. Hopefully this will change and the advice you’ve given here will definitely help in general. Thanks.

  2. I love this advice. It’s very important to listen to your body. I ran my first half marathon in January. As I was training I didn’t loose any wait. I asked myself why and the answer was simply, I was over eating. I eat when I’m hungry, but I eat way too fast. Therefore, I wind up eating way too much, before my body has a chance to tell me that I am full. As I prepare for my next half marathon, my plan is to relax and take time to enjoy every bight of my food. :)


  3. Thanks, great post! I especially find the parts about not dividing food into good and bad, and to enjoy food without guilt important.

  4. Great post! Love the tip about not eating in honour of your feeling. Just what I needed. Wishing you a happy Easter and a wonderful day! Lots of love <3

  5. This is BY FAR one of the best posts I have read on diet in a long long while. This is so true and I guarantee it will work 100 % more sustainable (maybe to faster) and more healthy than any stupid cleanse or diet to lose weight will ever.
    People should strive for being happy and confident instead of being “a certain ideal”.

    Lovely post.
