Health at Every Size

Health at Every Size
is a must-read for both the chronic and the occasional dieter, as well as for health care professionals who readily give advice about weight loss, but know little about the actual impact of dieting on metabolism, weight, and health. Bacon challenges the false promises of the weight-loss industry and translates the science underlying the health-at-every-size movement into practical, easily digestible truths. From the politics of fat and food, to the facts about the human body’s instinctive response to starvation, this timely resource helps readers understand how to heal their relationship to food and to their bodies, and to commit to good health instead of wasting time and energy dieting.”

“Dr. Linda Bacon has done what very few other ‘diet book’ authors have ever done: She has conducted legitimate academic research to show what happens in the real world with real people who try the HAES approach. And what happens should give us all hope. In the midst of all the hype, the fads, the panic, and the confusion, there emerges a quiet and simple way to make peace with one’s body, improve health, and get on with life. It works, it lasts, and it is a way to put all the craziness to rest. Thank you, Dr. Bacon!”
