We define the fundamental principles of intuitive eating as: (i) eating when hungry; (ii) stopping eating when no longer hungry/full; and (iii) no restrictions on types of food eaten unless for medical reasons. Design We include articles cited by PubMed, PsycInfo and Science Direct published in peer-reviewed journals or… 
Intuitive eating and its psychological correlates: A meta-analysis.
There is a strong evidence base for intuitive eating's connection to numerous adaptive psychological constructs and attention should now shift toward prospective and experimental designs so that the temporal nature of these relationships can be identified.
Systematic Review Impact of Non-Diet Approaches on Attitudes, Behaviors, and Health Outcomes: A Systematic Review
Non-diet interventions resulted in statistically significant improvements in disordered eating patterns, self-esteem, and depression, and the psychological improvements seen in weight-neutral, non-d diet interventions warrant further investigation.
Intuitive eating is positively associated with indicators of physical and mental health among rural Australian adults.
Findings may help allied health professionals guide rural populations to better health, and may be a particularly effective approach for people for whom the barriers to seeking out health services are high.
Preference for Intuition and Deliberation in Eating Decision-making: Scale validation and associations with eating behaviour and health.
Investigating the relationships between Preference for Intuition and Deliberation in Eating Decision-making (E-PID) and subjective and objective health-related parameters using a newly developed scale found neither decision-making style was shown to be detrimental.
