Health at Every Size® Lifestyle
Confused about what defines a healthy weight? Many of us are, given the bombardment of messages telling us that thinner bodies are healthier, more beautiful and are passports to success in all areas of our lives. These messages are partly driven by $65 BILLION (and growing) diet industry and the public health messages about the “obesity epidemic”.
