Well the newest edition of Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Program that Works was just released on August 7. And I got to preview a copy beforehand!
There are so many things to like about this book. One of the first things I found was that the writing style and organization of the book is pretty inviting and easy to follow. It doesn't use huge diet and nutrition related words that people don't understand. Another great part of the book is the personal experiences that cover many pages. These experiences not only show that intuitive eating works, but that there are lots of people that have gone through what you have gone through with diets and weight and health struggles.
The book starts by talking about how people have come to try intuitive eating, and it is usually because of "hitting diet bottom". After that, the authors help you to discover what kind of eater you are. It's important to figure that out, because that determines how you will move forward in the intuitive eating process. And that is exactly what it is - it is a process that takes change. And that, my friends, is another thing I love about this book. It doesn't talk about quick fixes or crazy miracle stories. Instead, it takes you through steps that fit your lifestyle and behavior, and it also addresses the process bringing hard and good times.
Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch did a wonderful job sharing their knowledge about healthy lives and healthy bodies. Even better, this newest edition includes ideas on how to raise intuitive eaters in your family - a concept not many parents have ever heard of before.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone ready for a positive change in their health behaviors. Even if you are happy with your weight and your current health status, this book teaches you even more about feeding your body the way it should be fed and accepting what a gift your body is.
