Can You Be Healthy At Any Size?

Dr. Linda Bacon educates us on the tenets of Health at Every Size. We are so grateful that she shared her time & expertise and hope that after listening, you will get off the diet roller coaster and begin respecting your body.

Most of us believe that being fat is unhealthy and losing weight will extend lives. But acclaimed research scientist and author Dr. Linda Bacon shows that a focus on weight backfires – and the best way to deal with health concerns is to end the quest for thinness, focus on good health habits, and let your weight naturally settle. Bacon backs her claims on solid research. She has published in top scientific journals and is author of the highly acclaimed popular press book, Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight. Her newest book, Body Respect: What Conventional Health Books Get Wrong, Leave Out, or Just Fail to Understand about Weight, a crash course in what you need to know about bodies and health, was released this month. You can learn more about her at www.lindabacon.org.
