"Health At Every Size (“HAES”) is a weight-neutral approach to healthcare that promotes the pursuit of healthful behaviors (like eating vegetables, moving your body, getting enough protein, etc.) for the inherent health benefits of those behaviors, rather than for the explicit purpose of weight manipulation."

HAES

The Health At Every Size ® (HAES ®) approach is an alternative to the weight/size-based paradigm upon which much current public health policy is based. The Health At Every Size® principles can be found at: www.sizediversityandhealth.org.

Weight Inclusive

A weight-inclusive approach provides health care that is free from weight stigma and body shaming. The focus is on overall improvement of well-being independent of weight.
