Intuitive Eater's Holiday Bill of Rights

by Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD

What if peace on earth could begin at the dinner table? Imagine experiencing an inner peace, free from incessant worry about what to eat. It's hard to enjoy the holidays when you are preoccupied with eating or worried about what to say to relatives who have an annual tradition of telling you what and how to eat.

Warning: Dieting Increases Your Risk of Gaining MORE Weight (An Update)

By Evelyn Tribole, MS, RD

     The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) asked if I would contribute an article on the dangers of dieting (specifically, how dieting increases weight gain)  as part of their outreach for National Eating Disorders Awareness week, which begins February 26, 2012.  Of course, I said yes, and here it is.

Update About New Intuitive Eating Book, 3rd Edtion!

This is quick update to let you know that there are exciting things underway for Intuitive Eating in 2012.

The Religion of Dieting—How to Tolerate Friends & Evangelists of the Latest, Greatest Diet

My patients often express difficulty being around enthusiastic friends, who incessantly talk about their new weight loss diet.  The friends are usually well meaning, with no intent to harm.  Yet, this diet talk stirs up a bunch of mixed feelings, such as:

•    Triggering for patients with eating disorders

Warning: Dieting Increases Your Risk of Gaining MORE Weight

If dieting programs had to stand up to the same scrutiny as medications, they would never be allowed for public consumption.  Imagine, for example, taking an asthma medication, which improves your breathing for a few weeks, but in the long run, causes your lungs and breathing to worsen.  Or, imagine taking a medication to unclog your arteries, but ultimately, caused increased blockage.

Intuitive Eater's Holiday Bill of Rights-Part 2

 

After creating the Intuitive Eater's Holiday Bill of Rights, I thought about the collective wisdom of Intuitive Eating Professionals on LinkedIn, (which consists of over 800 allied health professionals).  And so I posed the following question to the group:
