"Sure. The point of IE, as I understand it, is to (re)learn how to trust ourselves around food. And part of that means eating to being satisfied most of the time. Sometimes you'll eat a little bit too much because, darn, it was really, really…"

Any Intuitive Eaters looking for phone support?

Hi IE Online Community, I would love to connect with someone here who is possibly looking for outside phone support - even supportive texting.  I have been trying to do IE on my own for a few years, but I know the best changes I have made in life have come when I have support buddies. I used to live in an area where there was an active intuitive eating group and I miss it!A little about me: I am 29, live in the SF Bay Area, and am in grad school for a Masters in Social Work. I have done a lot…See More

Mary replied to Christi Hansen's discussion Struggling with physical pain that would not exist if I was not overweight - hard to love my body right now
"I think we all need the reminder! I always get so tempted to try the newest "in" diet. Now my friends are into The Paleo Diet. It helps me to read some of IE or similar material each day."

Triggered by feeling full

A big breakthrough for me was when I figured out that when I felt full or overfull, this was a trigger to eat more. This might seem odd, but let me explain. In my years of dieting mentality, when I felt full or overfull, I'd think, "Oh now I've really blown my diet. There's no hope now. I might as well binge for the rest of the day and start all over again tomorrow." So...whenever I felt full or past full, I'd want to eat more and more. Once I realized this dynamic, I made even more of an…See More

"Christine--Do you like to knit or crochet? I find that always having a project to work on helps me because I can't eat while I am knitting or crocheting. I am making some dishcloths and scrubbies for Xmas gifts."

"Hi Christi, Have you ever tried diets in the past? I am guessing you probably have, like the rest of us have. Did any of these diets work for you? They didn't work for us...that's why we're doing IE. Did you find a diet that worked…"

"Thanks Mary! I definitely find I am more prone to mindless eating on days where I haven't exercised. Funny how that works! Thank you for the helpful examples. As nervous as I am about mindful eating, I know it will be a good experiment for me.…"

Mary replied to Christine's discussion Over-eating out of boredom or tastiness
"I forget if I mentioned this....it helps if I only eat in the kitchen, sitting down at the kitchen table. I do not eat in the living room or the computer room or the bedroom or the family room. I do not eat in the car (unless we are on a trip and in…"

Christine replied to Christine's discussion Over-eating out of boredom or tastiness
