Next up on our summer reading series, probably the most talked about topic in the anti-diet and eating disorder recovery world, we have Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Anti-Diet Approach by Evelyn Tribole, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S and Elyse Resch, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S, FAND.
If you’re looking to give up the dieting cycle and truly heal your relationship with food but don’t know how to begin, this book about intuitive eating is for you.
The authors of this book break down everything from the science, to the internal experience of ditching diets and reclaiming your internal hunger and fullness cues.
However, in our practice we have noticed that this book is often misrepresented in the nutrition space.
From our experience there are some common misperceptions of the phrase “intuitive eating” and the most common often sound like: “I can’t eat intuitively since I have XYZ disease”, “intuitive eating will just cause me to gain weight because I’m not paying attention to my nutrition” or “intuitive eating isn’t healthy if I’m already overweight.”
Every single one of those statements is utterly untrue. In short, intuitive eating is essentially learning how to bring your body back to “factory settings” by pushing away and rejecting external dieting influences and returning to patterns that enhance your connection with hunger, fullness, and satiety on a physical and emotional level.
This book will explore how to identify what type of “dieter” you are, how to engage with the 10 Principles of Intuitive Eating, and how to raise an intuitive eater for all of our parents out there!
