Intuitive Eating
« on: January 17, 2018, 06:30:19 PM »
 I'm looking for a good book or website that can help someone learn to eat intuitively instead of counting macronutrients and tracking their food constantly.
I myself would like to know more about mindful eating.

Thanks!

 I love the idea of intuitive eating! One of my favorite new to me books is called "Body Love" by Kelly LeVeque. Although much of it is backed by science, I think she does a great job talking about feeling (how food can and should make you feel) vs. categorizing food by good/bad/a certain nutritional value. The book taught me to honor my hunger, and to help me determine what I am hungry for and when I am truly full/satisfied. It was a great read and I would highly recommend it!

Evelyn Tribole 'Intuitive Eating". It's a fantastic Book written by almost a founder of the intuitive eating concept.

As a professional dieting person I ve tried almost every popular diet in this world. And when I fall desperate about building normal  relationship with food, I found this book and it changed my world. It is so much helpful in explaining the eating disorders, how to change attitude to the food, how to be conscious. It explains everything which relates to the food from a different angle. And it really works. I personally found it as a must read book and  its  advices to be included to patients of nutrition consultants. And moreover if you follow its advices, you would be able to significantly develop your intuition in general.

I recently listened to a great interview with Katie Garces on the Balanced Bites podcast all about intuitive eating. This was my first introduction to this concept and I found it very accessible and inspiring. She has some helpful resources on her website at katiegarces.com. I've already been able to apply some of her ideas and reframe my thinking when it comes to eating.

Thanks for all of these great resource recommendations!  To be honest, I had never come across the term "intuitive eating" but it seems to be in alignment with my own food philosophy.  I plan to read up on this concept to gain more knowledge about this mindful approach to food.  I found this site to be quick guide on the subject too http://www.intuitiveeating.org/10-principles-of-intuitive-eating/
Thanks again!

I'm really a big fan of intuitive eating. I've had a lot of health problems and huge life changes in the past three years and I think more often than not, my body knows best. The more in tune I become with it the more it tells me what I do and don't need. I also think the guilt and shame our society puts on us in relation to the food choices we make is really scary. We already have so much pressure on us to be/look a certain way. I really want to be sure that the information I'm bringing to my clients is tailored to what they are able and willing to do. Not to shame them into thinking they have to eat a particular way all of the time.

I've found this post incredibly enlightening.  I have never heard of the term, intuitive eating before starting with Bauman College.  I agree that there is a lot of shame felt when it comes to food, but especially when your body does not accept foods considered "healthy."  For the longest time, I would force myself to keep trying foods that would make my body feel uncomfortable just because I had read the science behind how it was a "nutritional powerhouse."  It wasn't until fairly recently that I learned I have to listen to body's response to a particular food and respect what food is accepted or not.  I came across "The Evidence for Intuitive Eating" by Alexis Conason Psy. D in psychologytoday.com and in the article she emphasizes that intuitive eating helps individuals develop a healthier relationship with food, decreased depression and anxiety, and a greater self-esteem and more valued body image.  For those of us who have had a negative relationship with food due to various health circumstances, this approach to intuitive eating sounds very promising.   This approach is very encouraging to be able to educate clients on and one that I plan on individually pursuing myself

Hi!
I found the book The Yoga of eating by Charles Eisenstein really helpful and practical! It's not about restrictions and rules but rather listening to the body and trusting it.

Hi guys! I have been teaching Intuitive Eating in my health coaching practice for 6+ years. IE was really what completely transformed my relationship with food and I can't say enough great things about learning to eat in a way that honors your own body. I was previously caught on the diet / binge rollercoaster for 10 years and it was awful, and IE helped me heal all of that and feel sane and calm around food. I have a lot of resources on my website (www.jamiemendell.com) and here are some other people to follow: https://www.thereallife-rd.com/ and https://www.paigeschmidt.com/

I also found Evelyn Tribole's book (mentioned above) to be AMAZING. https://www.amazon.com/Intuitive-Eating-Revolutionary-Program-Works/dp/0312321236

Hope this helps!!

Hi Kristen! My recommendation is slightly different from the intuitive eating suggestions, but I've found the books: The Slow Down Diet and Nourishing Wisdom: A Mind-Body Approach to Nutrition and Well-Being by Marc David to be very insightful books that pair well with your interest in intuitive eating.
