First published in 1995, Intuitive Eating has become the go-to book on rebuilding a healthy body image and making peace with food. Weve all been there—angry with ourselves for overeating, for our lack of willpower, for failing at yet another diet. But the problem is not us; its that dieting, with its emphasis on rules and regulations, has stopped us from listening to our bodies. Written by two prominent nutritionists, Intuitive Eating will teach you:
• How to reject diet mentality forever
• How our three Eating Personalities define our eating difficulties
• How to find satisfaction in your eating
• How to feel your feelings without using food
• How to honor hunger and feel fullness
• How to follow the ten principles of ”Intuitive Eating”,
• How to achieve a new and safe relationship with food and, ultimately, your body
• How to raise an "intuitive eater"-NEW!
• The incredible science behind intuitive eating-NEW!
This revised edition includes updates and expansions throughout, as well as two brand new chapters that will help readers integrate intuitive eating even more fully into their daily lives.
"First published in 1995 and now in a third revised edition, this guide to eating for nourishment and pleasure has been updated with new material and research supporting the authors' clinical experiences over nearly two decades. Tribole (Healthy Homestyle Cooking) and Resch are nutritional therapists specializing in eating disorders, and their focus is on links between food, fear, guilt, and compulsive behaviors associated with futile dieting cycles. Each chapter is like an extended therapy session, with the bonus of case studies, insights, charts, and step-by-step guidelines to revisit while working through the 10 Intuitive Eating principles (making peace with food, coping with emotions, etc.). The authors explain why diets fail to produce enduring weight loss, sabotaging the body's natural signals for hunger and satiety; and how perfectionism strict calorie counts, obsessive workouts, etc. ensures defeat. In place of food restriction and calorie counts, they offer 'gentle nutrition' (i.e., food choices honoring health and taste buds) and feel-good exercise as great incentives toward success. Parents will appreciate a chapter on preventing eating disorders and obesity in children, and readers suffering from eating disorders and their families will find hope and realistic advice on healing even longstanding, intractable cases.
