Intuitive Eating Online Community

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


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.

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

"Feeling pride in working out doesn't mean bragging to others. But quite often our inner rebel reacts negatively to feeling pride about eating well or working out. It provokes feeling bad if we don't do the "right thing.""

IE in my dreams!

I had a dream last night where I somehow ended up with a big pink box full of donuts.  They looked so good so I decided to have one with sprinkles.  It tastes too sweet and I put it down.  I then grabbed an old fashioned and it was too dry.  I decided not to eat that one either.  I am proud of my IE dream self because I did what I would have done in real life.  I think if my subconscious is IE, then I must be finally IE!  :)See More

Katcha - IEing since March 2007 commented on Katcha - IEing since March 2007's blog post Why I no longer use 'weight' as a measurement of 'me'.
"A PS for this blog = instead of weight I use COMFORT as my guideline for body happiness. Using comfort helps me to focus on overall condition, not a single factor such as my mass in relation to gravity (lol)."
