Resources Amber recommend if people want to start exploring Intuitive Eating on their own.
- Intuitive Eating (a revolutionary anti-diet approach) Fourth Edition
The fourth edition of Intuitive Eating by E.Tribole and E.Resch. It’s important people get the latest version, which came out in 2020, as it focuses much more on weight discrimination and social justice. Every edition is better than the previous, as far as limiting “diet culture” language.
- The Intuitive Eating Workbook
This workbook is great for people who want exercises and ways to process the information on Intuitive Eating for themselves. I’ll often have clients get this workbook and assign exercises for them to do that coincides with our conversation.
