This book was written to help re-orient you towards eating from a place of educated knowledge, and intuition. Both educated knowledge and intuition are key elements to a healthy body, more peaceful mind, and better relationship with eating and food in general. It’s not enough to just follow a set of diet rules and not pay attention to the body’s signals. Additionally, often it’s not enough to just try to go by the body’s signals when a little knowledge and clear education can help provide some direction, healing, and guidance as well. This book was written to help guide you in getting to know yourself better; to get to know what works for your body and what doesn’t, what foods make you feel energized and what foods make you feel drained, what foods settle in your stomach well and which one’s don’t, and what foods bring satiation and which foods leave you feeling “full” but still hungry. All of this is accomplished through the artful combination of broadening your knowledge on facts not fads, and learning to trust and follow your intuition. This book is intended to help guide you back to trusting your own intuition instead of giving your authority away - and becoming a victim to - the next shiny yo-yo system that promises to “work” this time. I’ll start you off with some general information for educational purposes, and also share a few guidelines to help your body come into a less toxic environment. I will provide a list of “General Guidelines” that will help get you started, as well as a short “Nutritional Type Test” to help orient you towards a good starting point in finding the foods that are right for your “Type.” This book was not written to be yet another set of self-imprisoning rules, but rather a guide to lead you home to your natural way of eating, and as a way for you to find confidence and ease in the foods you’re consuming. If you’re looking for another restrictive “diet,” you’ve picked up the wrong book. After establishing a base of knowledge of “the basics,” along with a foundation of your “Nutritional Type,” you will have a solid foundation and great starting point to get you going. Then, you can fine-tune your meals according to your individual needs. Following your intuition from this starting point will provide you the foundational guidance to discover what’s right for you.
