Inspiring change and a better world…

Dr. Linda Bacon is a professor, researcher, and the author of the groundbreaking book Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth About your Weight, changing lives through her teaching, research, writing, public speaking and the transformative Passing the Message On multi-day Health at Every Size® (HAES) workshops. Dr. Bacon combines academic expertise and compassionate clinical experience to bring together scientific research and practical application. She shifts the focus from WEIGHT to WELL-BEING, giving doctors, dietitians, therapists, and people of all shapes the tools for achieving better fitness, health and even happiness – all without dieting.

Participants call the HAES training workshops delivered by Linda and Dr. Lucy Aphramor “life-changing,” giving professional clinicians and others confidence to deliver the HAES health message. (Read their comments here.) Linda and Lucy co-authored the groundbreaking peer-reviewed study, Weight Science: Evaluating the Evidence for a Paradigm Shift, that has up-ended conventional thinking in weight-loss research. Their forthcoming book, Body Respect: What Conventional Health Books Get Wrong, Leave Out, or Just Plain Fail to Understand about Weight, is a crash course in what you need to know about bodies and health, and will be followed shortly by Eat Well: For Your Self, For the World, rebooting nutrition education.

Dr. Bacon’s multi-disciplinary training includes graduate degrees in physiology (specializing in nutrition), psychology, and exercise science. She is committed to furthering social justice and education about the scientific evidence that underlies our understanding of weight.
