When it comes to nutrition, there's no shortage of seemingly important numbers. We have recommended daily allowances for nutrients, calorie amounts, cholesterol levels, and target weight, just to name a few. And if we're following a specific diet plan, chances are, we know a lot of those numbers by heart. We may even use them to help us make important life decisions. Nutritional numbers can be a great starting place, but sometimes we can start to feel like they're running our life, leaving us no room for fun or spontaneity - and for all the attention we give them, they really only tell part of the story. In this thought-provoking new podcast episode, Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, looks at the benefits and limitations of nutritional data, and offers some powerful alternative sources of guidance. If you find yourself checking the scale more often than you'd like, it may be time to give the numbers a break and tune into your own body's wisdom about what it needs to be fully nourished. What you learn may surprise you!
