On the other hand I was pleased to find the list of blogs she tries to crucify, very nice to see some women who don't hate themselves. It's so important to focus on reality these days when we are so innundated with unattainable bodies in the media. It's not so bad to build confidence.
I read that blog also, and it's pretty dated. (2008). Anyway, the latest edition of "Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Program That Works" by Tribole/Resch does contain information about research on IE, so the blogger's insistence that there is none is now incorrect. It may have been true at the time, but that was written five years ago.
