This is quick update to let you know that there are exciting things underway for Intuitive Eating in 2012.

Intuitive Eating-New Edition. Elyse and I just finished our final tweaks on the manuscript for a newly updated Intuitive Eating (the 3rd edition), which will be released in July 2012.  We are especially excited about this update because in addition to updating our entire book, we added two new chapters:

  • The Science of Intuitive Eating.  There are over 25 studies to date on our work, which validates the benefits and characteristics of Intuitive Eating for health and wellbeing.
  • How to Raise an Intuitive Eater.  This is a much-needed chapter about how to apply the Principle of Intuitive Eating for your family.  We often get queries about teaching children how to become (or continue to be) Intuitive Eaters.

Online Community. We will launch a free online community at the end of this month to help support your journey in creating a healthy relationship with food, mind, and body.  We hope that the Intuitive Eating Community will be a source of inspiration & support with tools and discussion forums.

Speaking at Conferences. Elyse will be speaking at the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals (IAEDP) conference on Intuitive Eating: The Path Toward Healing. And Evelyn will be speaking at the Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA) on Food Addiction, Nutritionism, & Intuitive Eating in the Prevention & Treatment of BED: From Science to Application.  You can find more information on our Events Calendar.

Intuitive Eating Webinar for Health Professionals. The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (PCNA) is hosting a webinar on Intuitive Eating: Creating a Healthy Relationship with Food, Mind & Body Understanding the Research. See our Events Calendar for more information.

Eating Well Magazine Hosts an Intuitive Eating Chat. In March 2012, Eating Well magazine will host a Facebook chat with Evelyn on Intuitive Eating, in conjunction with their March issue, which will feature an article on Intuitive Eating. I will post this information on our Events calendar as soon as it is available.

Intuitive Eating Professionals on LinkedIn. The group continues to grow–currently there are over 1,600 allied health professionals from around the world. The purpose of the group is to unite health professionals who help people create a healthy relationship with food, mind and body—through Intuitive Eating practices.  Ultimately this is a place to resources, network and collaborate.  Allied health professionals welcome, including but not limited to: dietitians, psychologists, therapists, physicians, exercise physiologists, and psychiatrists.  More information here:

Intuitive Eating is off to a great year and we will keep you updated on the launch of both the Intuitive Eating Community and our new edition.
