I don’t know why I haven’t created an Intuitive Eating Resources page or post yet. It comes up in nearly all of my client sessions. I have this Pinterest board with non-diet motivation, if you’re interested.

So today, I thought it would be helpful to share these multiple intuitive eating resources on one page – quotes, books, blogs, social media accounts and the like to create your non-diet bubble. thinness = health.

These resources defy the standard that , and that your weight is the most interesting thing about you. Newsflash: it’s not and never should be.

Busting the “What Health Is” Myths

Did you know that our socioeconomic status is more indicative of our health? In other words, our access to healthy food. The people we live with and have in our close-knit community. Whether we even have a community or not.

Our access to safe places to exercise and grocery shop. Education. Income levels. All of these affect our health in huge ways, yet diet culture minimizes these things. 

Many of these things are out of our control. Ironically, diet culture makes you think that your weight and your health are within your control. And that it’s only a matter of willpower.

Comprehensive list of intuitive eating resources includes quotes, books, videos, podcasts, blogs and more to help you learn and embrace intuitive eating.

Health is so SO much more complex than that. We are so much more complex than that. More complex and interesting than a number on the scale, or a pant size. Another thing we have no control over? Our genetics.

Furthermore, the more we stress about our health, the worse off we are. Stress hormones can have a devastating impact on the risk of chronic disease.

Think of this as not only a great starting point for those interested in intuitive eating, but also a great check-in point if you’ve already started your journey.

There are always new viewpoints to consider, and new books to expand our knowledge. If we’re close minded, how can we continue to grow? So rightfully, I will do my best to update this list of intuitive eating resources as needed.

So, here you go.

A Comprehensive List of Intuitive Eating Resources

All of these are non-diet and intuitive eating resources. Some are even geared towards Health at Every Size and Body Image. In my opinion, many of these topics and resources interconnect on many levels.

But, that being said, it’s important to have knowledge and understanding of them separately too.

This list of intuitive eating resources includes quotes, books, videos, podcasts, blogs and more to help you learn and embrace intuitive eating.

Most of these are quotes that I have shared on Instagram or this blog at one point or another, as well as some from other accounts I love. Consider saving these somewhere and create a folder or intuitive eating resources journal or pinterest board. Create something that you can refer to and look back on when you need it, when you’re feeling vulnerable or confused. Intuitive eating is hard, which is why it’s important to form this bubble to block out diet culture.

Books

I will say first, if you prefer to listen to, rather than read, books, I definitely recommend an audiobook! Audible is great because if you have Amazon prime it can link, plus you get TWO free books when starting.

I love downloading them and listening while running, walking, driving, doing the dishes, etc. It’s much more time efficient for me. You can use this link for 50% off your first audiobook

Intuitive Eating is an ongoing practice. It’s not just a “one and done” or get there and it’s over type thing. Because we are fluid humans, we are always needing to check in and reassess how we feel in different situations. That’s a good thing! Imagine how boring it would be if we wanted the same food every single day. Or if we had the same amount of hunger and fullness every day.

Change can be a good thing. And I hope these intuitive eating resources help you understand that, as well as what is intuitive eating.

I know this list of resources is not exhaustive in any way, and I’ll do my best to refer back to it and update it as needed.
