Doing no harm with Health At Every SizeĀ® Presented by Anneke Hobson, MPH, MA, RD, Canada

Anneke describes the research which has been the backbone of the HAES® movement. She explains the findings of two areas in particular. The association between weight and health, and the harms and ineffectiveness of weight-loss attempts.

She then details the application of the five principles of Health At Every Size approach

  1. Weight inclusivity
  2. Health enhancement
  3. Respectful care
  4. Eating for wellbeing
  5. Life-enhancing movement

Amongst dietitians, the HAES® approach has caused division. Some dietitians are fervent advocates and others shun it as inadequate. But is there are middle ground? Anneke explains some of the common misconceptions of HAES®. She also clarifies that your practice doesn’t have to be one of either the “diet” or the “non-diet” approach. HAES® is continually evolving and there is a continuum of practise. You can find your own way and navigate between the two approaches.

Anneke has created a useful list of further reading and resources found here.
