Style/ Plot – Evelyn and Elyse define intuitive eating as the process of honouring our health by paying attention to the messages of our body.

As this is a Workbook, the authors advice how it should be used. They explain the 10 principles of intuitive eating and provide practical exercises to show the reader how to eat intuitively.

Favourite Quote – “If you have been counting calories for a long time, it’s difficult to stop, because it has become an automatic mental habit. Focusing on calories does not connect you to Intuitive eating. It’s a tool of dieting. Simply willing yourself to stop is not enough to make it go away. However, as you work on becoming and Intuitive Eater, the calorie counting will stop.

Recommendation – Out of the 10 principles, my favourite was the 8th principle – “Respect your body”. It encourages the reader to surrender to the body they are meant to have and treat it respectfully.
