The purpose of this study was to investigate intuitive eating after an intervention using the Intuitive Eating Scale. Specifically, this study examined intuitive eating in subjects attending the University of California, Irvine Medical Center's Weight Management Series by number of years dieting, percent of life dieting, number of diets tried, BMI, having parents that dieted, being told to finish everything on the plate as a child, and number of weeks in the Weight Management Series. A convenience sample of 43 individuals participated in this study. Results showed that participants who had dieted 26–50% of their lives had greater change in intuitive eating as measured by the Intuitive Eating Scale than participants who dieted either 0–25% or 51–100% of their lives.
