Intuitive Eating is the go-to book on rebuilding a healthy body image and making peace with food. We’ve all been there - angry with ourselves for overeating, for our lack of willpower, for failing at yet another diet. But the problem isn’t us; it’s that dieting, with its strict rules, keeps us from listening to our bodies. Written by two prominent nutritionists, Intuitive Eating will teach you how to reject diet mentality forever; how our three eating "personalities" define our eating difficulties; how to find satisfaction in your eating; how to feel your feelings without using food; how to honor hunger and feel fullness; how to follow the 10 principles of "intuitive eating"; how to achieve a new and safe relationship with food and, ultimately, your body; and more.
This revised edition includes updates and expansions throughout, as well as two brand-new chapters that will help readers integrate intuitive eating even more fully into their daily lives.

"Both sound and supportive…this nurturing volume will find an eager audience in all those who are tired of living in the land of forbidden foods and the latest greatest diet fad." (Publishers Weekly)
"A valuable resource in the eating disorder field, both for clinicians and clients, helping all keep the end goal in mind." (Carolyn Costin, renowned eating disorder expert and author)
I really like the point of being aware of one's stomach and only eating if you are hungry. How about if you really need to:
deal with emotional eating?
Read it themselves. That female reader was too sing songy.
Different narrator and the 3rd edition rather than 2nd.
Disappointed. I discovered this is an older edition. Plus the narrators style is very irritating to me.
I bought both audio/kindle- the book offers the tables/reference materials and the audio is just easier for me to consume in total.
Just understanding the equation of: restricting --> deprivation --> grasping --> guilt -->restricting. Once you X out restricting OF ANY KIND - the whole equation goes poof! For me the last frontier was letting go of restricting. I had all these little hidden restrictions (telling myself I wasn't dieting) - you have to truly let go of them for this to work.
I felt like I was getting counseled directly by an expert. Someone who really understands the depths of this and someone with empathy.
No extreme reactions - the book is mellow.
Having read all of Geneen Roth's books and Have your Cake and Skinny Jeans too - this book fills in some of the gaps. Really helped cement the practices - and helped me to understand how to apply day to day - practical. Yes it repeats a lot - but when you're unwinding decades of dieting- repetition is good!!
No, I didn't finish it and just read the book.
I couldn't stand this narrator. I dislike it when the tone of voice implies that if you don't buy the theories you are stupid.
Interesting concepts, but can't recommend the audio.
tHANnks for making me a FIGHTER!
When I found myself binging while dieting, I felt like I was living hell on earth. I became food obsessed and I feared binging or being near food because I was so emotionally affected by it. Thanks to the principles in this books I have being able to recover in less than a month. I also read the bought the audio book "a thin's woman brain" , and "read brain over binge". I can finally say that I have started to fully live, and I enjoy food and life without feeling deprived anymore. Thank you for writing this book.
I like the concepts but they will be hard for me to follow. Some points seem outdated. Whole grains are just not a necessary part of our diets. I think the book Eat the Yolks is more up my alley. I just started listening to the audiobook, but it focuses on nourishing your body with nutritious foods as opposed to dieting. I dont know that I can ever re-program my brain to view all foods as equal like the book suggests. The ideas of listening to your body regarding fullness and hunger instead of following weight watchers is very valuable, and I love the hunger/fullness scale.
This is a good book with valuable information. It's just one I struggled to follow in audiobook format.

So often, the audio bothers me because the performance sounds stuffy. This one was very well done. I felt like I was being entertained, as the reader had a great skill in delivery. And of course, the content is superb!
