Intuitive Eating

I've heard so much about this book and am considering buying it. Looking for feedback before I do... if you've read it, does it work for you? Not? I'm hoping it's not one of those things that sounds good in theory, but just doesn't work.

I'm beginning to think it's spam or self promotion. I've seen it too many times over the last few weeks not to be suspicious. If it's good fine, but I'd like to hear a real story about it.

I'm currently in the process of reading it. I wouldn't consider it spam or a hoax at all. At the risk of sounding like a "book groupie" many of the points made in the book make total sense. I definitely plan to use it and continue it. Since I'm in the early parts of the process, I haven't lost weight. However, the process emphasizes slow weight loss. Perhaps some of the IE veterans could be more helpful...

I borrowed it from the library. It's interesting in theory but just not realistic for me. The basic idea is to only eat when you are truly hungry...if it was that easy I wouldn't be trying to lose right now.

not spam

well, i don't know, it could've started as such but i, margeis32, am currently reading IE. this book is for people who can not do "one more diet". this book is about shedding the "i shouldn't eat that" mentality and all the "good" and "bad" labeling we dieters do. IE is about returning to the innate ability to eat healthfully and to be satiated that has gotten buried due to years of dieting, societal pressure, family expectations, etc., etc... has it worked for me? i don't know if i've lost any numbers on the scale b/c i just started it a week ago (and haven't felt like weighing myself). i DO know that almost immediately i feel like the uncomfortable pressure cooker of dieting has been released. i eat what looks good, i try not to get too full, and i go about my day. i do not feel like i wasted my $13.95 even if i don't lose any numbers on the scale!

I got this book in May on the recommendation of my therapist. While I am following my own version of the plan (aka doing what works best for me), I would honestly credit this book for preventing me from developing a binge eating disorder. It prevented my relationship with food from taking over my life.

The thinking in this book goes against everything our culture has taught us about calorie counting and dieting. It teaches you to listen to your body's natural hunger and fullness cues, which you are told to basically ignore if you are on a diet.

Also, for the principles to truly take affect could take several months. This is the opposite of a quick fix. If you are interested in a new way of developing healthy eating habits for a lifetime, check it out.
