Episode 19: Jumbo Shrimp and Intuitive Eating "Meal Plans"

Podcast cover
Read more

What do jumbo shrimp and intuitive eating meal plans have in common? They are both oxymorons! Jill reviews the basic function of meal plans in the eating recovery process and discusses when intuitive eating concepts are appropriate. Most clients need solid structure (meal plans) when they discharge from a higher level of care, usually for 6 months or longer. Also they are helpful as a recovery protection plan when a major life event might occur (Houston Flood, divorce, marriage, etc!).
