Finding the Workbook Exercise Extremely Helpful

I am working through the IE workbook now after having read the book a few times. I am on Principle Two:Honor Your Hunger. The Hunger Discovery Scale Journal on page 51 has been most interesting to me for the past 2 days. I made several copies and plan to note my hunger rating and length of time between eating for a few days.On the one hand, it almost felt like keeping my Weight Watchers journal of tracking my food and number of points for the day (which is negative diet mentality.) But on the…See More

Fear of IE resulting in ignoring hunger cues in order to eat with company

I want to open up a discussion about fear. What are you all fearful of? How did you or are you getting over that fear? I am relatively new to intuitive eating. I'm almost done with the book.
