Inspiring change and a more compassionate world…

Dr. Linda Bacon, a professor, researcher, and the author of the groundbreaking books, Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth About your Weight, and Body Respect: What Conventional Health Books Get Wrong, Leave Out, or Just Plain Fail to Understand about Weight, is changing lives through her teaching, research, writing, and transformative workshops and seminars. Bacon combines academic expertise and clinical experience to bring together scientific research and practical application, all couched in a raw honesty and compassion that touches and inspires. She shifts the focus from WEIGHT to WELL-BEING, making a persuasive case for honoring human dignity. She speaks out on the damages of dieting – not only because it’s ineffective, compromises health, and teaches disconnect and body distrust – but also because it feeds weight stigma.

Health professionals – and people on their own personal journeys to body appreciation – call the seminars and workshops conducted by Linda “life-changing,” providing the tools and confidence for personal change and inspiring others. (Read their comments.)

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.

She co-authored with Dr. Lucy Aphramor 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 newly released book, Body Respect, is a crash course in what you need to know about bodies and health.
