“Weight loss money is money down the toilet” – Dee Edington Here’s an alternative…Health At Every Size (HAES) The underlying goal of traditional approaches to weight and health is for individuals to be smaller (i.e., lose weight). Little evidence exists supporting the efficacy of such approaches and concern is mounting that they may be violating the primary health care directive of “first, do no harm.” The basic conceptual framework of the HAES philosophy includes belief in:

  • The naturally existing diversity in body shapes and sizes.
  • The ineffectiveness and dangers of dieting for weight loss.
  • The importance of relaxed eating in response to internal body cues.
  • The critical contribution of social, emotional, spiritual, and physical factors to health and happiness.
