Health At Every Size (HAES)
HAES is a paradigm that says you don’t have to change your weight or size in order to improve your health. It isn’t a health promotion model that we hear much about, but it’s an approach that has been shown to have tremendous psychological and physiological benefits – without the pitfalls associated with traditional weight-focused interventions.
