"Brilliant, best-selling author and dietitian Elyse Resch has done
it again with this wonderful workbook designed to help teenagers
learn how to eat in a balanced, joyful, intuitive way. This fun,
interactive, and comprehensive guide encourages teens to consider
how the toxic effects of social media and harmful 'diet culture'
messages--as well as their own sense of self-confidence and
emotional states--affect their relationship with food and their
bodies. In honoring body diversity and bringing commonsense wisdom
to teens, this workbook also offers highly medically sound advice.
I will definitely be recommending it for my teenage patients!"

"Having overcome my own eating disorder (that began in my teens), and having spent the last several decades helping teens in my psychotherapy practice, I know the immense benefits that the intuitive eating process can offer to a young person's life. Elyse lays it all out beautifully in this important workbook.
The original Intuitive Eating book introduced us to a
life-changing concept. This teen version will do nothing less."
