Health At Every Size

The act of dieting is the greatest predictor of weight gain.

Most of us know diets have failed us and continue to fail us. The older we get, the worse it gets… it’s not just failing us physically on the scale but also emotionally and mentally. In fact, the side effect of food and exercise obsession is leaving us feeling overwhelmed, stressed and terribly anxious.

We want to be confident and healthy but we know diets don’t work… but we feel we have no other choice. Right??

Is there another choice other than dieting?

Yes, there is… Chasing health instead of weight loss. Adopting compassionate and healing behaviors towards our whole self.

The truth is weight management isn’t a guarantee of health. What?!?!

Yup… and now enter Health At Every Size. A movement and scientific approach to health that isn’t focused on weight but instead what really drives health in humans.

In this interview, Molly Bahr takes us through the Health At Every size basic principles.

In this episode I discuss

  • What is HAES: Health At Every Size 101
  • The collateral damage of dieting
  • ‘What Conventional Health Books Get Wrong, Leave Out, and Just Plain Fail to Understand about Weight’

Last episode I shared my interview with one of the graduates of the Fall 2018 Going Beyond the Food Academy. It was a vulnerable one as she shared her personal journey going beyond the food and transforming her relationship to food and her body. 

Indeed, her inspirational story proved that the journey to body confidence and peace with food and body image is possible and quickly achievable if you…

If you get committed and invest in yourself!

For Erin, the transformation led her to have peace of mind and body confidence… and yes, peace with food. She is now on her way to healing other parts of her life seeking the next best version of herself. Learn more about her story through this interview episode. Click here!
