Description of Presentation:
Historically, weight loss has been highly promoted as a health promoting behavior for a wide variety of health conditions and ailments. With the growing rise of eating disorders and the overwhelming amount of research showing, that long-term weight loss is not obtainable; it becomes imperative to find other non-weight centric models to improve health outcomes. One model that has evolved from many movements throughout history is Health at Every Size ®. This presentation will provide information on why this model is important to implement in the health care system and the research supports it having positive impacts on health outcomes.
Based on the content of the workshop participants will be able to:
1. List three of the five Health at Every SizeⓇ principles
