What is Intuitive Eating? 

​Intuitive eating is an approach that teaches you how to create a healthy relationship with your food, mind, and body--where you ultimately become the expert of your own body.   You learn how to distinguish between physical and emotional feelings, and gain a sense of body wisdom.   It's also a process of making peace with food---so that you no longer have constant "food worry" thoughts.  It's knowing that your health and your worth as a person do not change, because you ate a food that you had labeled as "bad" or "fattening”. 

The underlying premise of Intuitive Eating is that you will learn to respond to your inner body cues, because you were born with all the wisdom you need for eating intuitively. On the surface, this may sound simplistic, but it is rather complex.  This inner wisdom is often clouded by years of dieting and food myths that abound in the culture.  For example, “Eat when you're hungry and stop when you're full” may sound like basic common sense, but when you have a history of chronic dieting or of following rigid “healthy” rules about eating, it can be quite difficult. To be able to ultimately return to your inborn Intuitive Eater, a number of things need to be in place—most importantly, the ability to trust yourself!

My Story...

I've had personal experience with eating disorders since the age of 18.  My relationship with food became dysfunctional by age 8 and became emotional eater by age 11.  I started using laxative and diet pills which quickly escalated into full blown disordered bulimia & anorexia by age 19.  My relationship with food was unhealthy and destructive.  My self-esteem was broken and my relationships with people were greatly impacted.  I started therapy at age 21, Overeaters Anonymous at age 23 and read book after book to heal my relationship with food and body image.  The eating disorder subsided, but the constant battle in my head remained.  I thought I would spend the rest of my life in my head until I discovered Intuitive Eating by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch.  I read the book and began taking the certification classes so I could help others rediscover their natural cues and heal their relationship with food.  To read more of my story, pick up a copy of "RENEWED:  A Mind, Body, Spirit Approach to Self-Renewal" on Amazon.com.

Program Reviews

Just finished an Intuitive Eating workshop with Katie! I learned so much about I.E., myself, my struggles with my body and food. It's a process but I love the freedom this process brings me. Freedom to rethink, freedom to be happy right now, freedom from guilt... thank you Katie, Maggie and Leslie! Katie, you are a great example as well as a great teacher.
