51ilyzv1gwl_sl500_aa240__3A couple weeks ago, I posted about research that showed reading books that young girls could identify with helped improve self esteem and might be a good way to reach them with helpful fitness and health information. Emphasis on the helpful, which to us at Green Mountain means health at every size [HAES] messages.

For anyone who can use a primer on what HAES is all about, I’m thrilled to report that Linda Bacon has published her long-awaited book (long-awaited in HAES circles at least) “Health at Every Size, The Surprising Truth about your Weight.” Excerpts from the website:

Fat isn’t the problem. Dieting is the problem.

A society that rejects anyone whose size or body shape doesn’t meet an impossible ideal is the problem.

A medical establishment that equates “thin” with “healthy” is the problem.

The solution? Health at Every Size

Health at Every Size is not a diet book. Read it and you will be convinced that the best way to win the war against fat is the give up the fight.

This is a book with helpful messages that anyone concerned about womens healthy weight and living– or anyone else’s, for that matter — can really use.
