If there's anyone out there who understands French, there was a nifty little debate here on CBC radio (French) between an anti-diet nutritionist (sort of the French version of the Fat Nutritionist) and a spokesperson for Weight Watchers Quebec.
Essentially, the nutritionist was in favour of "letting go" and stopping trying to "control" your eating. I think she made some good points about re-learning to listen to your body's hunger and satiety signals. The most important one, in my opinion, was that it does take time to re-learn these signals. Perhaps one of the weaknesses of the "intuitive eating gang" is that their message is how easy it is. Not. The WW lady was thrilled to be selling her product to a large audience via the radio. She gushed about the new plan and insisted that WW is really a "lifestyle change rather than a diet". The nutritionist kept needling her about control.
Really, the debate is the same, no matter what the language!

Any brave souls out there??
