Intuitive Eating

< My Weight Loss Story is here. >

After years of dieting, binging, restricting and therapy I realize diets don’t work. I am committed to getting healthy, losing weight and maintaining with Intuitive Eating.

I read the book Intuitive Eating and was working with one of the writers, Evelyn Tribole R.D. before I moved.

I have posted about the process of becoming an Intuitive Eater extensively. It is very difficult for me because years of disordered eating have completely destroyed my hunger cues. I am working on eating when I’m hungry ( not other reasons) and stopping when I’m full very hard.

The Ten Principles of Intuitive Eating can be found in the book and on their website. They are:

1. Reject the Diet Mentality

2. Honor Your Hunger

3. Make Peace with Food

4. Challenge the Food Police

5. Respect your Fullness

6. Discover your Satisfaction Factor

7. Honor your Feelings Without Food

8. Respect Your Body

9. Exercise

10. Honor Your Health

I am currently working on these steps and working with Evelyn Tribole on becoming an Intuitive Eater and losing weight in a natural way. It’s a long process, but it is also the only long term solution. I document my therapy sessions and “homework” here.
