Intuitive eating (also called normalized eating)

Intuitive eating, the concept of eating when you are hungry and stopping when you are full, can be very challenging for individuals with eating disorders. Malnutrition tends to impede the individual's ability to accurately recognize and respond to eating out of hunger and satiety cues. For patients, intuitive eating is an absent but necessary skill set, essential to developing and maintaining a healthy relationship with food. Goals include learning to distinguish between physical and emotional feelings, and increasing awareness of physical verses emotional hunger. For some patients, a more structured eating plan prepared by a dietitian is necessary to maintain weight and nutritional progress. Source.
