(If you haven’t yet read my introductory post about beginning intuitive eating, start there! Today I will address my experiences with the first few chapters of Intuitive Eating by Evelyn Tribole.)
I’ve never explicitly talked about this on my blog, but most people who know me have some idea of my history with an eating disorder. I tend to feel like I’m being special snowflakey when I mention it, but I’ve learned that that mindset is incredibly common and incredibly problematic. It keeps so many people from seeking the help that they truly need, because they don’t see themselves as “sick enough.” I never want anyone else to feel like they can’t talk about it, so I know that I should.
