the Pledge

Health at Every Size® principles help us be at peace in our bodies, supporting people of all sizes in finding compassionate ways to take care of themselves. It includes the following basic components:

  • Respect, including respect for body diversity.
  • Compassionate Self-care
    • Eating in a flexible and attuned manner that values pleasure and honors internal cues of hunger, satiety, and appetite;
    • Finding the joy in moving one’s body and being physically active.
  • Critical Awareness
    • Challenges scientific and cultural assumptions;
    • Values body knowledge and people’s lived experiences.

From Linda Bacon: I've created the HAES Pledge, Registry, and Resource List with support and advice from members of the HAES community. My intent is to strengthen the HAES movement: to help support people in adopting HAES and to help those of us in the HAES community get better connected and develop our ideas. Follow the links to learn more about my books, Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight, and Body Respect: What Conventional Health Books Leave Out, Misunderstand, or Just Plain Fail to Understand about Weight, co-authored with Dr. Lucy Aphramor.
