Book Cover: Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Program that Works

This is a foundational guidebook for anyone who is interested in healing their relationship with food. We live in a food-phobic society that demonizes food groups and labels food (and the people who eat them) as either "good" or "bad." This approach is not improving our health and is, in fact, leading to higher weight, shame, and increased disordered eating and eating disorders. Intuitive Eating is based on the idea that we should stop dieting forever and instead allow our bodies to guide our food choices. When followed mindfully, it is an excellent book to guide advanced eating disorder recovery.
