This is the second episode of the Intuitive Eating series where I had the great privilege of interviewing one of the co-authors of the book Intuitive Eating. Elyse and I have a fabulous conversation about what intuitive eating is and what it isn’t. She also dives deeper into why pleasure is essential.
