Intuitive Eating is different than nearly every nutrition book out there because it’s not a diet or weight loss book. Instead of teaching the readers what foods are good and what they should be eating, Intuitive Eating invites the reader to learn a totally new way of relating to food and discover what works for their individual body and life. Intuitive Eating fundamentally rejects diets, rules about food and attempts to lose weight. Rather than looking to external factors to tell us when, what and how much to eat, Intuitive Eating looks to the internal wisdom of our own bodies and teaches us to reconnect to and honor that intuition.
I have found this to be incredibly useful both as a practicing RD counseling clients as a well a book to recommend to non- RD friends suffering from GI symptoms. This book explains the many ways someone might be suffering from a bloated belly. It not only determines the cause but also teaches you limit digestive symptoms and guides you towards foods you should be eating. There is also a very useful quiz that helps you determine what might be causing your bloated belly. Lastly, there are recipes that are specific to your bloated belly. Overall, I absolutely love this book and I could not recommend it more!

This is no ordinary cookbook – none of the recipes involve cooking. Rather, this is a book about raw food – the simple, fun and delicious building blocks of health and vitality. Be inspired to start “un-cooking”. Heating food can destroy the vital enzymes it contains, and diminish its nutritional value. Raw foods, in contrast, reach you exactly as Nature intended them to: full of the nutrients you need to live well and live longer.
