Episode 52- Intuitive Eating with Katie Garces
Episode 52 dives deep into why so many people fail on all of these different diets.
There is a stigma that one diet can fix everybody, and every new year people are rushing to figure out which diet is the latest and greatest. However, 95% of people cannot stick with the diet they choose. Why is that?
Katie Garces explains exactly how this happens. It is because we get so caught up in following the directions of the diet that we forget about listening to what our body needs.
In Episode 52, Katie explains how to listen to your body to discover what the perfect diet for you is.
