“It is possible to be vital and healthy, to feel better about ourselves and to feel attractive in whatever body we inhabit. It is possible to achieve a healthful weight by dumping the diet rules and trusting internal mechanisms, such as hunger, appetite and satiety. The new paradigm – Health at Every Size – champions happiness and health for people of all sizes — and trusting that our bodies know best how to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Decades of research make it clear: biologic safeguards prevent most people from maintaining weight loss, despite vigilant dieting and exercise. Research also shows that the body has a built-in regulatory system to maintain a healthful weight, if only we’d trust it.” states Linda Bacon, PhD.
