Binging is gone ☺️

When I found myself binging while dieting, I felt like I was living hell on earth. I became food obsessed and I feared binging or being near food because I was so emotionally affected by it. Thanks to the principles in this books I have being able to recover in less than a month. I also read the bought the audio book "a thin's woman brain" , and "read brain over binge". I can finally say that I have started to fully live, and I enjoy food and life without feeling deprived anymore. Thank you for writing this book.

Made their point over and over again--OK I get it.

What would have made Intuitive Eating better?

I really like the point of being aware of one's stomach and only eating if you are hungry. How about if you really need to:
lose weight?
deal with emotional eating?

What could Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Read it themselves. That female reader was too sing songy.

Would you be willing to try another one of Pam Ward’s performances?

Narrator really off-putting

Would you listen to Intuitive Eating again? Why?

No, I didn't finish it and just read the book.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Didn't finish.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I couldn't stand this narrator. I dislike it when the tone of voice implies that if you don't buy the theories you are stupid.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?


Any additional comments?

Interesting concepts, but can't recommend the audio.

What would have made Intuitive Eating better?

Different narrator and the 3rd edition rather than 2nd.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed. I discovered this is an older edition. Plus the narrators style is very irritating to me.

It really is like a field guide

Would you consider the audio edition of Intuitive Eating to be better than the print version?

I bought both audio/kindle- the book offers the tables/reference materials and the audio is just easier for me to consume in total.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Intuitive Eating?

Just understanding the equation of: restricting --> deprivation --> grasping --> guilt -->restricting. Once you X out restricting OF ANY KIND - the whole equation goes poof! For me the last frontier was letting go of restricting. I had all these little hidden restrictions (telling myself I wasn't dieting) - you have to truly let go of them for this to work.

What does Pam Ward bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I felt like I was getting counseled directly by an expert. Someone who really understands the depths of this and someone with empathy.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reactions - the book is mellow.

Any additional comments?

Having read all of Geneen Roth's books and Have your Cake and Skinny Jeans too - this book fills in some of the gaps. Really helped cement the practices - and helped me to understand how to apply day to day - practical. Yes it repeats a lot - but when you're unwinding decades of dieting- repetition is good!!

Cannot stand this narrator

I implore the authors to re-record this wonderful book with someone who isn’t channeling “stuck up and condescending” as their tone. It’s intolerable because by her overacting she’s imparting meaning to this book that was definitely NOT intended by the authors. Worst audiobook I’ve ever attempted to listen to.... so disappointing.
