Fat isn't the problem. Dieting is the problem. A society that rejects anyone whose body shape or size doesn't match an impossible ideal is the problem. A medical establishment that equates "thin" with "healthy" is the problem.
The solution?

Health at Every Size.

Tune in to your body's expert guidance. Find the joy in movement. Eat what you want, when you want, choosing pleasurable foods that help you to feel good. You too can feel great in your body right now--and Health at Every Size will show you how.

Health at Every Size has been scientifically proven to boost health and self-esteem. The program was evaluated in a government-funded academic study, its data published in well-respected scientific journals.

Updated with the latest scientific research and even more powerful messages, Health at Every Size is not a diet book, and after reading it, you will be convinced the best way to win the war against fat is to give up the fight.

I really believe this book should be taught in our public middle school health classes!!!!

This book changed my life. In twelve accessibly written chapters with 419 references to scientific studies, Dr. Bacon disproves the myth that fat is not conducive to health. She shows us that much weight loss research, which doctors and the media reference, is funded by people who work for the diet industry. “At least seven of the nine members on the National Institute of Health’s Obesity Task Force were directors of weight-loss clinics, and most had multiple financial relationships with private industry.” She points out that from 1970-2004, during the so called “obesity epidemic” the average lifespan rose from 70.8 to 77.8. She addresses the issue that many diseases such as high blood pressure and heart disease associated with overweight are found in thin people too. She raises our awareness of the vast diversity of size among the human population, and proves that health can be achieved for all sizes. But how? Her advice is simple. Give up trying to lose weight. Regardless of your size, “enjoy a variety of real food, primarily plants.” Move your body in pleasurable ways, which she calls “active living.” And most of all, love yourself. This health manual is not going to raise profits for the multi-billion dollar diet industry. But it raises awareness that health comes in all sizes and it has raised my self-esteem immeasurably. - See more at: http://blogs.jocolibrary.org/staffpicks/03/2010/carletonb/317/#sthash.nmMl08EY.dpuf
