Discover how shifting the focus off of weight in health care can greatly improve health outcomes for patients. It is increasingly evident that diets do not work, and that patients of a wide range of sizes can benefit from increasing healthy habits without weight change. With this evidence, we as medical professionals can more effectively and ethically treat our patients by changing how we interact with them around weight. We will explore how to do no harm to our patients of all sizes without recommending weight loss.

This podcast is intended for medical professionals, but we welcome all listeners. DeAun Nelson, ND, and guest hosts will discuss relevant topics such as: obesity as defined by BMI, determinants of health, weight stigma, healthism, weight loss, Well Now, Health at Every Size®, Body Trust®, weight science, research, and more.

MJ no diets ever again ,

True Health

True health is not weight biased or focused on body weight. Thank you so much! As a dietitian this mentality is imperative to do no harm.

Podcast for people who want to learn and be open minded about HAES

Incredible podcast that helps providers learn how to operate in a weight-neutral way. As someone who is not a medical professional, but is someone in recovery from an ED/exercise issue, listening to DeAun and the professionals she interviews has been incredibly helpful in my recovery. Living in a fat phobic culture saturated with the message that weight determines health (and your worth... every other message that feeds my eating disorder) I have found that listening to the research and evidence that supports the Health At Every Size is imperative in my recovery, even as someone who has always been living in a smaller body. It’s also helped me become more empathic to the experiences that people living in larger bodies are having in the world. DeAun is one of the most compassionate and empathetic people I have heard on a podcast and I’m so thankful that she is making this podcast!!!
