Episode 37: Part 1 – How to Ditch Diets and Make Peace with Food with Elyse Resch

OK folks, it’s finally here – the brand new 4th edition of the most authoritative book on anti-diets, Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Anti-Diet Approach! Intuitive Eating is a classic bestseller, and definitely NOT one of those diet books! Intuitive Eating, is a way of eating that is in line with our values, helping us transform our relationship with food and free ourselves from the hamster-wheel of fad diet gimmicks and tricks, yo-yo dieting (also known as weight-cycling), and the barrage of fake-science-based nutrition programs designed to fail us over and over again. This episode is Part 1 of a two-part series where I have the privilege of interviewing co-author Elyse Resch, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S. Elyse is a nutrition therapist in private practice in Beverly Hills, CA, with close to forty years of experience specializing in eating disorders. She is a prominent health professional in the field of nutrition, Intuitive Eating, and Health at Every Size. The best part is that I finally have both authors of Intuitive Eating on the show! If you haven’t yet listened to Episode 13 with co-author Evelyn Tribole, make sure to go over and take a listen! You’ll get to hear her perspectives and enjoy just a down-to-earth and just fun interview filled with nuggets of wisdom and information that will transform the way you eat.

    In this Part 1 Episode Elyse discusses topics such as:

  • Intuitive Eating Research and Science – over 125 research articles to date
  • Elyse’s definition of IE – the dynamic interplay of instinct, emotion, and thought
  • Interoceptive Awareness – the ability to hear and understand the body’s physiology
  • The first 5 of the 10 Principles of Intuitive Eating – newly revised order and naming
  • Satisfaction – Elyse explains how it’s at the core of Intuitive Eating

All this and so much more. That’s why you have to tune in for this insightful Part 1 interview and discover a new leaf on life, free from those extreme diets and crazy food rules that dominate our culture. And then keep listening, the following week we bring Part 2 with topics like

  • Principles 6 through 10 – newly revised and updated with greater perspective
  • Radical Acceptance – acceptance of ourselves through every cell in our body
  • Honing our hunger and fullness cues – to enhance our health and well-being
  • …And much more
