Intuitive Eating

I'm slowly wondering what this is.  Because my intuitive eating right now is eat what I want, when I want it.  But I'm guessing that it's more complex than that and a bit less like a free-for-all than I imagine.

I've been researching books to read and there are lots.  Most seem to take this Zen like approach to eating and being mindful about it.  I'm not sure I'm there.  On the Zen part.  While I like some of the ideas of Buddism, I'm not fully sold and I don't want to be confused by the aspects of it while trying to read a book about eating.

I'm thinking of this book:  Normal Eating For Normal Weight.  Anyone read it?  Anyone read any other books that are similar?

Jen from Prior Fat Girl posted on Facebook about going to a class at Sky Zone next week.  Immediately I sent Pete a message asking if he'd want to do it and that it sounded cool.  He sent me back a response asking if I remembered him telling me about this very thing a week or so ago?  Nope.  No memory of it at all.  (I'm sure he was shaking his head as he said it...)  Then he reminded me that our new neighbor teaches classes at this facility.  He started when he was trying to lose weight, lost 80 pounds and loved it so much that he started teaching the classes.  Very Cool!  I'll let you know how it went next week.
