Based on the popular anti-diet program, Intuitive Eating, this guided companion will help you pay attention to your body’s natural hunger cues, and develop a healthier relationship with food.
Do you use food to comfort yourself during stressful times? Do you deny yourself the pleasure of eating because it causes you to feel guilt or shame? You aren’t alone. Many people today have a complicated and difficult relationship with food. But there is a way to change. Intuitive Eating is a comprehensive, evidence-based program to help you pay attention to your natural cues of hunger and satisfaction, and cultivate a profound connection with your mind and body.
This illustrated journal will give you all the tools you need for eating intuitively, and will show you that you are the expert of your own body. You’ll also discover ways to distinguish between physical and emotional feelings, and make peace with food—so that you no longer have constant ‘food worry’ thoughts. Most importantly, you’ll find powerful writing prompts to help you explore yourself as a whole person—regardless of what you eat.
Now is the time to move beyond diet mentality, honor your hunger, and make peace with food—and yourself. This journal will help guide the way.

“Elyse Resch has taught me that the key to body positivity and health is not about deprivation or strict rules, but about being in tune with your body and mind.
