THRIVE BOOK CLUB:

INTUITIVE EATING by Evelyn Tribole & Elyse Resch

SELF-HELP MEETS MENTAL HEALTH

There are countless of #1 New York bestseller self-help books on the market that are so relatable and engaging. Authors we’ve never met manage to communicate how we feel in such a succinct and articulate way that it helps us better understand our own experience. However, upon conclusion of the final chapter it can be difficult to determine how to move apply what we learning from the book to our own lives. Where do we go from here? Thrive Therapy’s self-help book review creates an opportunity to explore self-help content with mental health professionals and practitioners. Together we sift through the chapter, discuss any shifts in perspective and/or determine if the book prompts any practical changes in our lives. Join us at our next Thrive Therapy book review for coffee, connection and chance to unravel some questions from your favorite books and authors. Please reserve your seat in advance, as only 8 seats are available.

SUMMARY:

"This guide to eating for nourishment and pleasure has been updated with new material and research supporting the authors' clinical experiences over nearly two decades. Tribole (Healthy Homestyle Cooking) and Resch are nutritional therapists specializing in eating disorders, and their focus is on links between food, fear, guilt, and compulsive behaviors associated with futile dieting cycles. Each chapter is like an extended therapy session, with the bonus of case studies, insights, charts, and step-by-step guidelines to revisit while working through the 10 Intuitive Eating principles (making peace with food, coping with emotions, etc.).

The authors explain why diets fail to produce enduring weight loss, sabotaging the body's natural signals for hunger and satiety; and how perfectionism strict calorie counts, obsessive workouts, etc. ensures defeat. In place of food restriction and calorie counts, they offer "gentle nutrition" (i.e., food choices honoring health and taste buds) and feel-good exercise as great incentives toward success. Parents will appreciate a chapter on preventing eating disorders and obesity in children, and readers suffering from eating disorders and their families will find hope and realistic advice on healing even longstanding, intractable cases."
