Summary

The go-to resource - now fully revised and updated - for building a healthy body image and making peace with food, once and for all.

When it was first published, Intuitive Eating was revolutionary in its anti-dieting approach. The authors, both prominent health professionals in the field of nutrition and eating disorders, urge listeners to embrace the goal of developing body positivity and reconnecting with one’s internal wisdom about eating - to unlearn everything they were taught about calorie-counting and other aspects of diet culture and to learn about the harm of weight stigma. Today, their message is more relevant and pressing than ever. With this updated edition of the classic best seller, Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch teach listeners how to:

  • Follow the 10 principles of Intuitive Eating to achieve a new and trusting relationship with food
  • Fight against diet culture and reject diet mentality forever
  • Find satisfaction in their food choices
  • Exercise kindness toward their feelings, their bodies, and themselves
  • Prevent or heal the wounds of an eating disorder
  • Respect their bodies and make peace with food - at any age, weight, or stage of development
  • Follow body positive feeds for inspiration and validation

…and more easy-to-follow suggestions that can lead listeners to integrate Intuitive Eating into their everyday lives and feel the freedom that comes with trusting their inner wisdom - for life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Must read book for EVERYONE

If you have struggled with body image and dieting then this is invaluable. This book has shifted so much for me, I wish I had read it earlier. I am recommending it to everyone I know, essential reading for individuals, parents, and friends.

I am so thankful I listened to this book!

This book has completely changed my view of eating! I had always wondered why I had such a dysfunctional relationship with food and this book explained why and practically explained how to change. This way of eating allows you to not restrict ANY food types like other plans but to develop a healthy relationship with food.

Absolutely dire narration.

I could not listen to the narrator's voice anymore. Dull and soul less, like a robot.

Sounds like a robot reading

The audio is horrible and sounds like a robot. Very difficult to listen to because it’s very monotonous. Can’t follow the content because it’s so hard to listen to. Will have to buy the actual book.

Very useful book

I found the content of the book fantastic but the narration was quite awful. I found it slow and robotic sounding and had to listen to the entire book sped up just so I could get through it quicker.

Excellent but too detailed

It's adefinitive guide and outstanding in many ways. Physical book might have been more useful.

What a fantastic perspective changing book!

This was a total revelation to me - what an antidote to the diet culture! Really refreshing hearing ideas on honouring your body and it's signals. Fantastic! I will need to listen to this book a few more times, do the exercises and maybe even do their course to fully take it in and start using it in practice for myself and my future clients. Thank you ladies.

poor narration

The narrator appears to be in a rush to get all the words out, so for myself with auditory issues it makes it hard to understand what she is saying, this is not helped by the flat, monotone way in which she delivers the narration
I do believe this book can be extremely helpful in repairing your relationship with food, but I'll stick to the actual paper copy.

Very inspiring

Enjoyed listening - I have reached the stage of my life where I’m tired of dieting, deprivation, feelings of guilt and being consumed by food. This approach is definitely breath of fresh air. As the result of listening to this audio I purchased workbook too but a paper version.

Packed with information!

I would suggest taking notes as you go along. Narrator style is not the best but the information is useful. I would also suggest hiring a registered nutritionist for support and guidance along your journey back to intuitive eating

less politics more health please

I was under the impression this book would be more about the science of intuitive eating and less of a political agenda sorrounding body image. My concern is that certain unhealthy people will read this book and use it as an excuse to remain the same. Being a big person myself I have experienced the problems of carrying to much weight from knee problems, back pain, sleepyness from food, the feeling of overeating, eating for emotional release and many other issues I can tell you sometimes just accepting yourself is not always the key and changes need to be made or you will die. In order to understand intuitive eating you do not need this book just feel and understand how food effects your body. I truly wish this book was much more about how to listen and understand your body then about Lizzo and celebrities and oppressors. some pointers I learned in my journey I dont exercise I move and focus on things I want to do for example Nike Run Club and Caroline Girvans training programs I dont always do it 100% I do what I believe I can do for the day sometimes it 100 other times its 40 or 20% or 0% I dont beat myself up or just give up I just rest when I feel I need to. In regards to eating intuitive eating is important you must learn to know your bodys signs of hunger and fullness. Also what foods give you energy and what foods are what I would consider bad and remove energy from you make you feel sad or tired. and contrary to what the book states some foods have made me sad not because of guipt but because when I eat them I feel horrible they make me tired and grogy and take away time from my life sleeping in a food coma how can that be good? anyway good luck people

Great information, terrible narration.

I love this book and it’s a perfect place to start when beginning intuitive eating. It’s packed with helpful information and nurtures a learning environment for honoring your body.
With that in mind, if you have the option to buy the book, I highly suggest you do. It’s terribly narrated, and it sounds like Siri is reading you the book. If you can get past that, it’s worth it.

Terrible narration

I can’t stand the narrator. It’s almost unbearable to listen to. She sounds robotic. It’s distracting and difficult to comprehend.

The narrator sounds like a robot...

I was looking forward to this one but I find that the narrator sounds synthesized. She will start a sentence with decent inflection but then quickly modulates to a flat tone that I find unlistenable. I could have an eBook reader read this with more tonal variety than this.

Changed my life

This is a life changing book. I highly recommended to everyone who has been sucked into the diet culture as I was. The premise is revolutionary and yet so simple.

Amazing. Life saving information.

I appreciate all the eating disorders awareness info that was added to the fourth edition. Eating disorders are deadly and severe. Intuitive eating is so important for us to understand and apply.

Great Book But the Narration is Awful!

Having read the 1st edition of this book, I was very excited to hear the 4th edition. The updated information is great but the narration is awful. It felt like listening to a long robocall. It's the one thing that's preventing me from spending a credit on the book.

Great Information

The information in this book is invaluable. I’m looking forward to finding a coach/nutritionist/therapist to help me with this journey. I already feel relieved and hopeful knowing there is a path to follow that is different from where I’ve been.

The narration and editing of this book is ok. It’s easy to blame the person but I think the editing team has some accountability here too. But if you can avoid getting hung up on the sometimes robotic voice you’ll find the time spent is well worth it.

Potentially Life Changing

I have been a life long dieter. I was burnt out on diets and trying to lose weight. I also felt out of control with food and stress eating. I am using the principles of intuitive eating to ditch the diet mentality, fire the food police, and honor my body and what it needs. It feels like freedom. This is not a quick fix... it is a paradigm shift and takes practice. Not for those seeking a diet, but definitely for those who want to change.

Don’t listen to this!

This book has been one of the worst things I have ever followed. Gained weigh, and not happier in my body. Super puffy, uncomfortable, and bigger from trying this. And horrible advice to just get whatever kids want. They don’t become “intuitive” and start eating vegetables. This breeds a horrible “I want this” mentality and gives no credit to having self control. This book opened more issues and I wish I could return it. I hate it being in my library on audible!
