Then I had my first baby 8 months ago. I gained 60lbs— an absolute blast at the time but then I was left with a body heavier than it’s ever been. I despised how I look and felt. I wanted another baby soon after but told myself I couldn’t get pregnant again until I lost this weight— and I would never gain weight like that again! I did an intense high-protein diet and tough exercise regime and even hired trainers. I did drop a pants size but was positively miserable. I had to consume 180 grams of protein a day! I had to force myself to eat when I wasn’t hungry, had no room in my “macronutrient budget” to eat fruits or even many vegetables.
Then, three important things happened. One, I realized that I don’t enjoy meat (I typically choose meatless options when eating whatever I want) and craved fruits and vegetables like crazy.
Two, I looked back at pictures of myself from a few years ago where I thought I was fat and had so much to improve on my body— and realized that I looked fantastic! I couldn’t see what I possibly didn’t like about that body! What was wrong with this picture? Would I ever be happy, even at goal weight/size?
Thirdly, I began to question the amount of protein I really NEED. I don’t particular want to be a bodybuilder and I’m craving fruit so why not eat them? Is 180 grams of protein really the only way?
Then I somehow stumbled upon the Ten Principles of Intuitive Eating. I was HOOKED. I’ve read this book twice now in the past two months and feel finally free to live the life I want. I’m exercising every day in ONLY the ways I enjoy and I cannot wait to do it! I eat the foods I truly want, including the love of my life chocolate, and never feel grossly over full. My weight is normalizing but that’s not even the main concern or best part about all of this. I see the beauty in my body NOW. I feel sexy and cute NOW. I am happy every day. I wish I had known about this my entire life. My kids sure will!

I read it 6 weeks ago and been carrying out the practices since. After a lifetime of yo-yo dieting, it is going to take a while to break free of the dieting mindset, but eating intuitively is definitely the right way for me. Something just clicked into place reading this book and I think it is going to help me transform my relationship with food.
The book is thorough, kind, easy to absorb, suitably paced and detailed and not at all patronising (as books of this kind can sometimes be).
I would (and have) recommend it to all.
I am looking forward to my journey to becoming a normal eater evolving more and more.
If I could I'd give the book 4 and a half stars as the authors are a bit long winded, however the overall message is one that I think we should all know hence the high review.
