Scientific Rigor

Intuitive eating is the process of recovering internal cues, which includes eating in response to hunger and satiety versus responding solely to emotions and external rules. There are thousands of studies that have shown how intuitive eating helps people develop a healthier relationship with food resulting in improvements in blood pressure, lipids, weight loss, and cardiorespiratory fitness. In addition, intuitive eating has positive psychological benefits including decreased depression and anxiety, increased self-esteem, and improved body image.

Science has been an integral part of the creation of the Peace With Food App since day one. We recognize that the only way to know if we are achieving our goal of improving relationship with food and body image is to measure it. That's where the research comes in. Peace With Food is committed to advancing the field of intuitive eating through clinically-validated research on our technologies with specific testing groups (outside of our app users.) Privacy is paramount to our work; we never gather research data on our users. We are currently in progress on research studies that could be among the largest digital intuitive eating trials ever conducted.
