When I got back from vacation, I felt a great need to re-commit to the "intuitive eating" path. In recent days, I have found several blogs that are helpful and supportive to those of us interested in this approach to weight loss, healthy eating and making peace with food.
Here are a few blogs that I think would interest anyone who'd like to learn more about intuitive eating:
First, a huge self-help forum for intuitive eaters, old and new. It's got a wealth of information and tons of support: http://throughthickandthin.myfreeforum.org/. I've only just started exploring it.
Nutritionist Evelyn Tribole http://www.evelyntribole.com/ has some interesting things to say.
Although I haven't read it, Beyond Chocolate by Sophie and Audry Boss looks intriguing.
I highly recommend reading Paul McKenna's I Can Make You Thin. This was the book that started my voyage.
I also really enjoy http://www.quityourdiet.com/
and have just discovered http://melsmid-lifecrisis.blogspot.com/ and
If you would like to suggest other blogs, I'd love to hear about them.
I read a number of other blogs that run the gamut from fat acceptance to calorie counting to low/no carb to WW, but I'm really interested in connecting with more people who have chosen intuitive eating as their path. It's rather frightening to let go of all the food rules--it's like going into free-fall and trusting that the parachute of your own common sense will open in time. The "trust in oneself" factor is the ultimate challenge.
One day, one meal at a time...
