Eat What You Love

For several months now I've been interning with Rebecca Scritchfield, an RD in Washington D.C., working with her on all things blog, and social media related. It's been a fantastic experience, and Rebecca has taught me and the other interns a lot. One of the perks of this position is the opportunity to interview leaders in the field. I spoke on the phone recently toMichelle May, an intuitive eating coach about her new book: "Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat!" You can find the interview on Rebecca's blog, Balanced Health and Nutrition.
I would love for you to read the post, and chime in here, there or on Guiltless about intuitive eating. Are you an intuitive eater? Have you been caught in the diet-cycle of Eating, Repenting, Repeating before? How do you really know if you are hungry?
Have a fantastic Monday!

I'm still working on my personal battle with "Am I Hungry?"! I seem to never be full so my decision often comes from my brain and when I know anything additional I eat will be for taste and I "should" be hungry. I'm definitely going to check out her book though - what woman hasn't been caught in that diet-cycle!

I am loving this!! Thank you so much!! It very much connects to my personal story and now my professional mission!

Oh yes, I have been caught in that cycle more than once. When I "hit bottom" I would then "join a weight loss challenge." Let me tell ya, failing at weight loss challenges against others challengers does WONDERS for a person's self esteem. (not) I am breaking free!!! Mindfulness, awareness, love, compassion. I may have to check out this book, too, though I am kinda needing a break from experts. lol (It does look good, though!!) Janelle
