In this video dietician Elyse Resch, one of the co-authors of the book Intuitive Eating – A Revolutionary Program That Works, discusses what intuitive eating really is and how it gets misrepresented.

Elyse explains that it’s important to understand how diet mentality can undermine your efforts at intuitive eating. Intuitive eating is not another diet. There are 10 principles meant to be guidelines – not hard and fast rules that make your eating wrong or right.

Elyse gets into this around the 38.20 minute mark. Prior to this she and the host, Meret Boxler of the Life. Unrestricted. podcast and the blog, discuss why dieting doesn’t work, the supporting research, and how Elyse came to her approach.
