On this episode of The Noble Art of Wellbeing it was my pleasure to get to speak to the Inspirational Dr. Linda Bacon, a professor, researcher, and the author of the groundbreaking books, Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth About your Weight, and Body Respect: What Conventional Health Books Get Wrong, Leave Out, or Just Plain Fail to Understand about Weight, is changing lives through her teaching, research, writing, and transformative workshops and seminars.
Dr Bacon combines academic expertise and clinical experience to bring together scientific research and practical application, all couched in a raw honesty and compassion that touches and inspires. She shifts the focus from WEIGHT to WELL-BEING, making a persuasive case for honouring human dignity. She speaks out on the damages of dieting – not only because it’s ineffective, compromises health, and teaches disconnect and body distrust – but also because it feeds weight stigma.
We discuss how you can have health at any Size, but most importantly we debunk some of the myths around weight.
We talk more about the problem with diets and weight loss programs, how to truly honour and listen to your body!
If you are want to start a healthy relationship with your body and weight then this is one episode not to be missed.
