Review- Health at Every Size®- An introduction for AEPs. Presented by Meg McClintock APD

Practising under a weight centric approach doesn’t mean weight is the only focus of the intervention, rather it describes an underlying belief that better health is accessed through maintaining or achieving a ‘healthy weight’. Health at Every Size® (HAES) challenges this assumption that weight is a reflection of health behaviours and acknowledges research that demonstrates the ineffectiveness and harms caused by the pursuit of weight loss.   
Meg unravels the rationale for a weight neutral approach, asserting that promoting healthy behaviours, rather than a focus on reducing body size, is the most useful way to support our client’s health. 

We are introduced to the Health at Every Size® principles: 

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

How these principles apply to the role of an Exercise Physiologist is actually rather intuitive. Meg offers her impression of the broad range of functional and biochemical measures which can be the focus of our exercise intervention. 

You’ll be offered a sense of confidence that we can, and should, help our clients improve their health independent of weight change. And well, when it’s put like that, it’s not so provocative after all! HAES® and Exercise Physiology seem to be a pretty great match.
