A:  Essentially it’s a term I’ve coined that’s like your eating GPS….your innate, internal wisdom that lets you know what, when, and how much to eat. Diets teach us to fear our true hunger cues in order to lose weight. Eventually this disconnection from your {IBW} prevents you from listening to and honoring your authentic hunger and fullness cues.

Study after study indicate that restrictive diets lead to overeating, binging, and feeling out of control with food. So people who dial into and use their IBW to guide them during meals and snacks can or may or may not lose weight if they tend to overeat or binge.

 The KEY is to NOT make this your goal, because focusing on weight loss detaches and disconnects you from this interoceptive wisdom or being able to feel and properly interpret the physical sensations of your body.  We want to reconnect with that wisdom that is inside of you!

The fact that you are viewing the Nutrition Atlanta website demonstrates your interest in wellness. I am here to say that you have landed at the right place. My experience with Jennifer Hnat has been transformational for my life. I must admit, before meeting with a nutritionist, I was skeptical about committing to a possible long-term regimen to improve my health. But, immediately following my first consultation with Jennifer, I was blown away! It was incredible to have someone truly listen to my needs. Offering practical, personalized guidance, she made me feel empowered to take charge of my wellbeing. Her holistic approach to nutrition is uniquely refreshing. It’s hard to believe that almost two years have elapsed since my initial visit to Nutrition Atlanta. Yet, I do not regret making this pivotal choice for my personal welfare and prosperity. But you shouldn’t simply take my word for it. I challenge you to take the first step: schedule a consultation with Jennifer Hnat. Your future self will thank you later.

And feeling down about my weight. When I first met Jennifer she told me I will never have to diet or weigh myself again. This was music to my ears, no more dieting! She explained the healthy living plan designed especially for me (no one plan fits all like most diets).  I am a very picky eater with medical issues; Jennifer put together a plan that would work well for me. She explained portion sizes based on my health concern, how to listen to my body, and delicious recipes. I was never hungry after balanced meals. The first week I lost weight (Jennifer stressed is just a bonus). Within a couple of weeks, I no longer craved sweets. Something I thought was impossible! Jennifer was very thorough and truly cares about her clients. She is passionate about healthy living and it shows. I couldn't have reached my goal without Jennifer’s help. Thank you!”

I contacted Jennifer because I was tired of yo-yo dieting...

Mary Ann, Yelp Review

She listened and immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease with her. She is extremely knowledgeable about the science of nutrition and how it affects our bodies. As I answered her questions, she almost immediately was able to pinpoint my eating patterns and what was missing from my diet, including what food groups, timing of meals, calories in vs. calories out, etc. When I would answer her questions, Jennifer would explain a pattern or reasoning for something, and I always found my head nodding because she hit the nail on the head.  I could go on and on, but I will just say that if you are looking for help with your diet or way of eating, contact Jennifer and you will be glad you did!

I met with Jennifer today and can't say enough about her!  

Aditaya, Google Review

I was diabetic, had high cholesterol, LDL & triglyceride levels. I was determined to avoid pharmaceutical drugs and motivated to change my diet and lifestyle. Three months after following my customized Nutrition Atlanta health plan my blood work showed a radical improvement. My 12/2019 lab results: A1C down from 6.9% to 5.7% in just three months!  Total cholesterol down from 250mg/dL to 199mg/dL; Triglycerides slashed in half from 326 to 167; LDL decreased from 134 to 117; And ALT down a bit from 47 to 44. This gives me the motivation to continue this healthy trend! Thanks for all your thorough nutrition guidance, recipes and help Jennifer, I will avoid medication after changing my diet and lifestyle!! ”

“I recently had a disturbing visit with my doctor and was told I would have to go on medication.

Hiya body love!

We've all tried diets and failed. But it's not you, it's the deprivation and psychology of diets that fail us. This one decision to invest in yourself and repair your relationship with food and your body is the biggest game changer if you're willing to commit and do the work!

Yeah but...will this really work for me?

Look, I get it. We buy into this belief that our self-worth is tied to our weight. Your weight will fluctuate throughout your life both on and off a diet. When you delete the diet messages and reconnect to your inner wisdom {IBW™} you never have to diet again.  I promise! 

Sounds interesting but.... I want to lose weight? 

This is so frustrating. If you can commit to your food journey for a solid year of effort, undoing all the diet beliefs and food behaviors, you will discover that you can cultivate a balanced approach towards nourishing your body. It takes time and effort, but radical recovery is possible and absolutely happens. 

I have tried everything and nothing works. 

I feel like I have tried everything and nothing works. 

Intuitive eating is a non-diet framework similar to mindful eating but with a focus on deleting diet and restrictive eating behaviors.  Combining mindfulness + intuitive eating is the perfect partnership to repair your relationship with food and will reconnect you with your IBW™ so you can crack your Unique Food Code™.  

What is Intuitive Eating? 

Diets create a toxic good food vs. bad food belief system. You don't allow yourself to eat the "bad" food you love unless you're off your diet. It's backwards and creates a distrust with your body. But you can learn to take your power back with all food and find peace!

I don't trust myself around food.

Mindfulness is a way to observe your personal habits in real time, replacing judgment or expectation with curiosity and acceptance.  It's a way to see unconscious eating behaviors or habits to empower you to change if they feel unbalanced.  This helps you recognize current eating patterns you want to change to feel more food peace.

I started out super motivated to start some of Jennifer’s plant-based recipes, but when I started to make my menu, I realized a sense of dread would come over me. When I explored this feeling, I realized I am not used to spending real time preparing vegetables. Sure, I will spend 30-90 minutes prepping an entree, but vegetables are another story. Preparing vegetables, to me, was throwing a bag of green beans in the microwave, and maybe placing them in a bowl, some days maybe not… The negative feelings around plant based recipes made me realize I needed some plant literacy, and I am so glad I scheduled a 90-minute kitchen prep session with Jennifer! It was a joy because 1) she is joy and 2) I became much more comfortable with vegetables. Now the idea of new unknown vegetables and fruits feels like an exploration. And I can already tell this reframe is going to be life changing! I was surprised to find the recipes much simpler than I anticipated. Also, simply knowing Jennifer is out there gathering vegetables, mindfully preparing them makes me want to follow in her suit!  Every session is filled with a new reframe or tool to move me towards health in my relationship with food. Working with Jennifer has been the best gift to myself. I almost don’t want to say gift because it feels so necessary. I wish everyone could work with Jennifer so they could experience the joy of the mindful eating journey.

Marisa, ATLANTA

"I've been working with Jennifer for about two years. She is by far the most responsive provider that I have! On top of that, she has helped me open my eyes beyond diet culture and diet mentality that I was trapped in for years. Previously, I would complete Whole 30s, and was stuck in a regimented/restrictive view of food. Working with her has helped me get unstuck, and greatly improve my overall wellbeing."

Gwyneth Paltrow is promoting a new book, Intuitive Fasting, written by Dr. William Cole (ps: he is not a medical doctor or physician).  Don't be fooled, this is diet culture co-opting intuitive eating which is dangerous.  Two words that should NEVER be juxtaposed: intuitive + fasting.  The irony is it was released during National Eating Disorders Association Awareness week.  Intentional fasting is the opposite of tuning inward and listening to the Intelligent Belly/Body Wisdom™.  I do believe in tapping into the natural rhythms of the body and allow the digestive system to rest for 12-hour between dinner and breakfast.  But I am NOT a fan of ignoring true hunger cues packaged up as a new health-ism term that is really a glamorized diet book pretending not to be.  AVOID. 

Intuitive Fasting is a DIET

Life is too short to be at war with food and your body! Working with Jennifer during the 30-Day Mindful Eating Challenge has changed my relationship with food! I nourish my body and listen to what I truly need and want instead of grabbing for whatever is there or my usual go to food. I don't judge my food choices or have to eat everything on my plate anymore.  I eat when I know I need to nourish my body when I'm hungry and eat what I want in moderation.  This is a BIG change. Food is my friend, not my enemy. I don't eat perfect mindfully; that's ok.  I'm continuing to learn.  Mindful eating skills are gifts that keep on giving and teaching as I go along this wonderful journey!  If I could sum up mindful eating in one word, it would be
total FOOD FREEDOM!
