Intuitive Eating Review
What You Should Know
The book, ‘Intuitive Eating,’ was written by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch. Evelyn Tribole is a dietician who has a practice in California and Elyse Resch has practiced as a nutritional therapist during twenty five years. The book, ‘Intuitive Eating,’ is based on ‘ten principles.’ Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch tell us that the ten principles that make up their concept of Intuitive Eating as explained in their book are as follows:
1. Reject the Diet Mentality.
2. Honor Your Hunger.
3. Make Peace with Food.
4. Follow the Food Police.
5. Respect Your Fullness.
6. Discover the Satisfaction Factor.
7. Honor Your Feelings Without Using Food.< ?p>
8. Respect Your Body.
9. Exercise…Feel the Difference.
10. Honor Your Health.
There are no ingredients; ‘Intuitive Eating,’ was conceived by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch and is explained in a book written by them, with the same name.
In the book, ‘Intuitive Eating,’ the authors using the ten principles that they have conceived try to gently persuade those who have weight problems and wish to lose weight to change the fundamental relationship they have with food and diets. In the principle entitled, ‘Reject the Diet Mentality,’ they tell you to throw out diet books and magazine articles that give you false hope of permanently losing weight, quickly and easily. In the, ‘Make Peace with Your Food,’ principle they tell you that you should honor your food rather than fight your hunger. In the principle entitled, ‘Honor Your Feelings without Using Food,’ they tell you that rather than using food as a solution to feelings of anger or worry you should find the real source of this emotion and you can then go on to heal your relationship with food. In fact Intuitive Eating seems to be about taking a philosophical and spiritual approach to your eating habits.
- The book, ‘Intuitive Eating,’ is available to order online.
- There is an official site for Intuitive Eating.
- The authors are diet experts.
- The authors do not provide us with much physical proof that following their ten principles will actually procure weight loss.
- This softly holistic approach to weight loss is not suitable for everyone.
- Some people just simply want to get on with their weight loss and do not want to deal with any possible emotional reasons for their weight gain.
- This seems to us to be more of a series of psychological tricks than an actual weight loss aid.
‘Intuitive Eating,’ is certainly a book suitable for the spiritual soul who would like to take a holistic approach to their weight loss and who is prepared to accept that their genetic blueprint simply is such that they are just meant to be a certain shape or size. It is also suitable for those who have the time and motivation to perhaps seek a deeper emotional reason for their weight gain. This book is unlikely to do you any harm and you may enjoy reading it (especially if you found the 10 Principles above intriguing) but the Intuitive Eating concept is not going to be a good weight loss tool for the women who wants to lose weight quickly.
