Beyond the Scale

Confused about what defines a healthy weight? Many of us are, with the overwhelming messages telling us that thinner bodies are healthier, more beautiful and successful. Despite all our efforts, we're not getting any thinner, and research shows that dieting can be harmful to overall health and wellbeing.

Health at Every Size (HAES)® is an alternative to the traditional weight focused approach. Join us as we discuss this novel approach to health that can help us build a positive body image, enjoy food, and discover the pleasure of moving our bodies.
