Intuitive Eating Online Community

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

     Available for Pre-order

Coming June 2020!

Get inspiration & support from the Intuitive Eating Community. Discover tools, forums, & blogs based on bestselling book, Intuitive Eating.




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. Reading the book is highly recommended as discussions do use and follow book terms and suggested practices.

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