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.
Healthy Weight Week – 2015 Schedule Coming Soon
Healthy Weight Week is an educational event to help change public perception that weight determines health and that dieting is a viable health solution. Dieting has led women astray by making their struggles with weight worse, negatively affecting their health, and keeping them from living the lives they want. Healthy Weight Week encourages women to improve health habits in lasting ways by eating well without dieting, living actively and feeling good about themselves and others.
