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.

"Teh Rachel, Life happens, life can be stressful and work can be stressful. Navigating all of life with the IE principles in our tool bag can help us focus and navigate. I'd say the 'mundane' successes are well worth noting :)"

Sometimes success doesn't sparkle

Hey folks, it's been a while since I posted and I wanted to check in. Things are going as well as they can with intuitive eating. <3 Some might recall I got a job back in August... well, it didn't work out so well. I had some issues with my manager that never resolved. It ends in Jan, and I'm working from home until then. I've been struggling with fairly intense stress for months now. I noticed my eating and movement patterns shift a bit towards my old stress response - overeating and not…See More

"I can really relate to the sadness of giving up overeating. I'm still a bit stuck there. Knowing I've had enough and eating more because it tastes so good. Often eating so fast that I don't realize how full I am. Yep, work in process."

eating out intuitively first time

I planned our shopping trip to town so we could eat at a restaurant. I intentionally did not pick the place or my food ahead of time. I chose Cracker Barrel (edited from Golden Corral) not impulsively but because I thought I would have a good choice of different types of food.The food police, my husband and the waitress were put on hold while I studied the menu. Once I let go of the thought of judging by calorie count list for each item (I used to think this was a good thing) so many more…See More
