Congratulations Clare, that must have taken a lot of strength and willpower.

Once the habits are established (within a few weeks, as St. Thomas Aquinas says it takes to establish a habit), it is not really difficult.  In fact, it is a relief to be eating in harmony with one's true appetite (and, therefore, according to God's will).

The intuitive eating approach could definitely benefit those with eating disorders.  It considers dieting itself to be a kind of eating disorder, because dieting puts one out of touch with physical hunger.  It also counsels acceptance of one's body size.
