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 isn't required but discussions do use and follow book terms and suggested practices.

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 Evelyn are dedicated to maintaining a 100% free membership.

"So true Sarah!  I have added juice back to the permission list and I am loving having it instead of my diet soda.  I feel so much better after a high quality orange juice than coke.  My stomach is so much happier as well.  "
