Are You a Part of the Clean Plate Club?
Registered Dietitian Tips About How Much to Eat
By Registered Dietitian Kate
Are you a part of the ‘clean plate club’? Were you ever forced (or encouraged) to eat all that is on your plate? Or perhaps you’re on the other side of the table encouraging loved ones to always clean their plates?
Relearning hunger and fullness cues is a major component of becoming a more mindful or intuitive eater. One of my goals as a Registered Dietitian is to help clients to recognize (or re-recognize, really) their internal hunger and fullness cues, so they can eat foods that are enjoyable to them, in portions that are both satisfying and healthy.
Remember, it’s okay to not eat everything on your plate. It is also okay to eat everything on your plate. Let your hunger guide you. Trust that your body knows how to nourish itself. It may take some time to learn to truly identify your hunger and fullness cues after ignoring them for some time but it sure is worth it.
