Changing the Conversation Around Health and Weight
Healthy Weight Week, which started 25 years ago, serves to help people understand that health really isn’t about a number – on the scale or otherwise – and to encourage people to stop dieting and pursue livable and sustainable healthy lifestyles through eating well, living actively and feeling good about themselves.

Some of the past winners dating back to 1989 include a laser lamp that melts fat, thigh cream, skin patches, cleanses, slippers and food pads, and even media personalities and television networks.
