Intuitive Eating Online Community

Empowering you to create a healthy relationship with food, mind, and body.


Our Intuitive Eating Community (based on the book Intuitive Eating by Evelyn Tribole & Elyse Resch) is a safe and nurturing place -- free from "diet talk", "fat talk", and body bashing.

It's a place to get inspiration & support for your Intuitive Eating journey.

It's free to join, but you will need to sign-up.  Elyse and I are dedicated to maintaining a 100% free membership.

This is your community and we are very open to feedback.  Please feel free leave suggestions in the Forum: Feedback & Suggestions about features that you would like to see in your Intuitive Eating Community!
