Health At Every Size
3/26/2012 8:30:43 AM

I remember when I first heard about the philosophy of health at every size.  As a graduate student in exercise physiology and a dietetic intern I was first very skeptical of the philosophy that a person could be healthy at any size.  Coming to believe in the Health at every Size (HAES) philosophy was an evolution for me.  I was familiar with the literature of how obesity impacted health parameters including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer (to name a few).  I understood as a person lost weight their risk for the disease went down.  However, what I did not fully understand at that time and what many people, including medical professionals, still do not understand is that health and weight are not synonymous. 

Time Spent Thinking About Food

How often do you talk about food and weight with others?  Or even more, how much time do you spend thinking about food and weight in a given day?  Did you know that food and weight are some of the most frequently discussed topics?  And, according to one clinical finding the amount of time you spend thinking about food, and weight directly correlates to your personal relationship with food.   This study recently came to mind when my husband and I were out to eat at two local establishments.
