"Welcome, Sabine! Yes, isn’t it interesting how some folks have just never become entangled in thinking about food and diets ALL the time! It’s great that you have a couple of natural IE “role-models” as you start this journey!"

I'm new to IE and I have never used a forum, so this is an opportunity to learn a lot of new things. My goal is to improve my relationship with food. I have a couple of friends that are natural intuitive eaters, which I just now realize after I learned about it. I always wondered why they are so relaxed around food and when I'm with them we never discuss diets or anything like that and they never seem to have cravings or want to eat like a bottomless pit.. Another friend of mine is like me, we…See More

Wow - first time at market since starting IE

I had the most interesting experience of opening up to aisles I don't usually allow myself to go into today! It was so overwhelming that I just allowed myself to just take that in without the pressure to buy ALL THE THINGS. That felt like a good first step. I do go into those aisles for my son and husband but not for me. So... it felt like a really good process!See More

"I prefer thinking of the IE process as 'biocentric (own) body honoring'."

"I have just drawn a new cover for my German edition of the book. Before: "Intuitive Weight Loss". Now: "Intuitive Eating". I could have printed the original english cover, but I wanted to make the book "mine"."
