Ever wish you could just eat normally?
You're not alone—millions of people struggle with food and battle their bodies. But you can become a normal eater. This course will help you find freedom with food, ease in your body, and faith in your own inner wisdom.
I'm Christy Harrison, a registered dietitian nutritionist, certified intuitive eating counselor, and the host of Food Psych podcast. I created this online course based on my experience helping hundreds of clients and tens of thousands of listeners develop healthier relationships with food.
Intuitive Eating Fundamentals teaches the same scientifically validated principles of intuitive eating and Health at Every Size that I use in my one-on-one nutrition counseling—all in a self-paced online format that's packed with engaging multimedia content and available anywhere in the world.
The course contains hours' worth of audio, video, and interactive exercises that teach you how to:
- Give up dieting for good
- Recognize and honor your hunger and fullness
- Stop yo-yoing between rigid food rules and out-of-control eating
- Choose nourishing foods without having to use willpower or restriction
- Take pleasure in food
- Navigate emotional eating and cope with feelings without using food
- Trust yourself with all foods—even those that seem "off-limits"
- Stop battling your body
- Start exercising for the joy of movement, not as penance for your eating
- ...and so much more!
Find Lasting Peace
This course is designed to help you get back in touch with your body and use it to guide your food choices.
It sounds so easy to "just listen to your body," doesn't it? But as you probably know, this process is incredibly complex.
Maybe you've tried it before, and your initial attempts only confirmed your sense that you couldn't trust your body. Maybe then you doubled down on your efforts to control it—and ended up feeling out of control yet again.
I know that struggle, and I know the way out. Intuitive eating helped me heal my own relationship with food many years ago, and in my work as a nutrition therapist and podcaster I've helped thousands of people on the same journey.
In this 13-week online course, I'm offering the same tools I provide to my one-on-one clients over the first 13-15 sessions—but now you can access them from anywhere in the world, at any time of day or night.
This course isn't designed for people with active eating disorders or those in early recovery, but it's definitely for you if you've recovered from an eating disorder or spent a lifetime fighting food.

I'm a registered dietitian nutritionist and certified intuitive eating counselor in private practice, specializing in Health at Every Size, eating disorder recovery, and (of course) intuitive eating. I'm also a journalist and podcaster with more than 14 years of experience in food and nutrition media.
I have a deep connection to this work because a decade ago, I struggled with my own food issues. My path eventually led me into graduate school at NYU to study nutrition, and it was there that I stumbled upon intuitive eating, which was the final turning point in my relationship with food. I learned to trust my body, honor its needs, and nourish it well—and I experienced a sense of peace I'd never known when I was obsessing about food.
Now I'm so grateful to be able to help others who are on the same journey to freedom.
This course is based on the model of intuitive eating developed by registered dietitian nutritionists Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in their seminal book Intuitive Eating. The course explores and expands on the core principles of intuitive eating through multiple media, helping you troubleshoot common roadblocks and put intuitive eating into practice right away.

Does Intuitive Eating Fundamentals start at a specific time?
No, this is a self-paced online course, so you can start anytime!
Can I go away on vacation during the course without missing anything?
Absolutely! Since the course is self-paced and you have lifetime access, you can go away for a few weeks and pick up right where you left off. Your access will never expire, so take all the time you need!
Do I need to have any prior knowledge of intuitive eating?
Not at all! The course helps you work through each of the principles of intuitive eating, so you don't have to be familiar with them to start. By the end you'll have an excellent working knowledge of intuitive eating.
I'm already familiar with intuitive eating. Will this course still give me something new?
Absolutely! I've designed the course to address common issues with putting intuitive eating into practice, so if you're already familiar with the concept but haven't fully incorporated it into your life, this course will help get you there. The multimedia format suits a variety of learning styles, and the interactive exercises help deepen your understanding.
I'm struggling with an eating disorder. Can I take this course?
This course is NOT designed for people with active eating disorders or people in the early stages of recovery. Eating disorders can make your hunger and fullness cues unreliable, and attempting to practice intuitive eating while in this state can actually worsen your eating disorder. Please wait to purchase this course until your eating disorder is in remission, and then ask your treatment team whether the course is appropriate for you.
I've never been diagnosed with an eating disorder, but I think I have some form of disordered eating. Can I take the course?
Disordered eating is a spectrum, and many people—including most American women—have it to some degree. This course IS designed for people who have disordered eating behaviors such as yo-yo dieting, occasional bingeing, and vacillating between restriction and overeating, without significant medical complications or high-risk behaviors such as gastroparesis, purging, or medication abuse.
What if I have another medical condition?
In scientific studies, intuitive eating has been shown to be effective in managing and reducing the risk of many chronic conditions, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Ask your doctor if you have specific concerns.
Will intuitive eating help me lose weight?
Intuitive eating is not intended as a weight-loss method. Some people may lose weight when they learn to honor their bodies, while others gain weight they'd lost through restriction and deprivation. Still others maintain their weight with intuitive eating. Weight loss is not a goal of intuitive eating or of this course, which is based on principles of Health at Every Size® and body acceptance.
I'm a clinician who wants to use intuitive eating in my practice. Can I take this course?
Yes! The material is presented at a level suitable for clients and clinicians alike, and the program is evidence-based. Clinicians are welcome to adapt some of the course materials, with attribution and a link to this page, for partial use in their one-on-one work with clients. Clinicians may also have clients purchase the course and then work through it with them. To inquire about permission to use course materials in group settings, please contact me.

Get In There!
Working with me one-on-one to master intuitive eating costs $2,000 or more. I'm offering this course at a fraction of that cost so that I can help even more people—and I'd love for one of them to be you!
