This book was not written by a medical doctor I also find the name Bacon to be deliciously ironicIt s easy to be impressed by someone who says I have a PhD but keep in mind that a PhD is NOT the same as a MD Not only that but Bacon s degree is in physiology not medicine and she as of 2020 is an associate nutritionist at the same college she got her degree from University of CaliforniaCalling oneself is a nutritionist is an automatic strike against that person ANYONE can call themselves a nutritionist you don t need certification for that Dietitians are the ones who need to get certified and you will find dietitians in hospitals and clinics to advise patients on diets usually for health issues ie low sugar diets for diabetics low sodium diets for heart patients etc but since Bacon doesn t believe in diets it makes sense that she is using the word nutritionist Sheer fucking uackeryBacon says several times through the book that obesity is not related to health that obesity has no negative impact on health that if anything is hurting one s health it s other stuff such as diabetes or arthritis etc etc Wrong When it comes to type 2 diabetes 80 85 percent of these cases are obese people Coincidence I think notI have never come across an MD that says obesity is ever healthy I even outright asked my doctor and she said that while 10 or 20 pounds overweight on an adult is fine if their diet is moderate but the body has limits So yes you can be overweight and healthy but your body can only carry so much extra weight before that excess takes a toll on the body so there really is no such thing as HAES despite what this author and so many Fat Acceptance proponents say Not to mention the extreme hypocrisy I see from so many FAHAES advocates when they slamrip thin peopleBacon also ignores the fact that obesity not only causes many health issues particularly heart issues but exacerbates existing health issues ie arthritis Medical studies have proven time and time again that obesity is just NOT GOOD FOR THE BODY but whatever little research Bacon cites in this book is very cherry pickedThere s some good things in this book about not trying to conform to a societal standard of beauty not starving yourself to become skinny and accepting that the ideal standard of beauty is nearly impossible to accomplish but then that gets weighed down with promoting HAES and trying to ignoredownplay the medical conseuences of obesity as well as pushing intuitive eating which sounds great at first but ignores the fact that you do have to be careful of what you eat and be aware of what you are eating and how much instead of just eating whenever you feel hungry which is problematic because the body is meant to feel a limited amount of hunger at times and people who eat a lot thus condition their bodies into feeling hungrier often than they shouldUltimately the concept of HAES is an outright lie and intuitive eating and loving your body needs to be taken in moderation If being extremely underweight is unhealthy something many HAESFA supporters will eagerly believe then so is being extremely overweight That s all there is to it It s simple medicine and simple physics The human body was only designed to take so much abuse alcohol drugs food whatever before conseuences temporary and permanent happenHeatlth at Every Size is an oxymoron and a dangerous delusion that fatties use to make themselves better Thing is having good fee fees isn t going to cancel the negative effects of obesity on the bodyAnd that whole 95 percent of diets fail study that is used as an argument by HAES proponents The study was flawed After the experiment the people were not given any diet or nutrition counseling they were just turned loose back into the world Most of them reverted to their old eating habits because all the experiment did was restrict their diet nothing No counseling or nutrition lessons or anything like that The scientist who did the study realized that and admitted himself that the experiment was flawedLink here about THAT study and how flawed it was doctors have criticized Linda Bacon and her HAES stance and for good reason as of Dec 2019 Anyone calling me a troll or trying to use strawmen to try to argue with me will be insta banned I m tired of stupid fatties REEEEEing at me because they can t accept their own shortcomings and have to take it out on other peopleEDIT as of July 2020 If you have a problem with me rating this book 1 star read my damn review all of it before commenting because it s painfully apparent that the butthurt I see over my review is from the fact that I gave it one star gasp how DARE I and many of the people who REEEEE in my comments section are nothing but butthurt at the fact that I refuse to accept their self induced delusions If you re one of these people take a long look at yourself and stop projecting your self inflicted problems on other people and take god damn responsibility for the choices that YOU make on a daily basisThanks and have a great dayEDIT as of July 9 2020 I have had uite a few FAHAES advocate try to troll me either on this review or reviews I ve written against other HAES books in the last few days alone This just tells me that my reviews are really hitting home for HAES advocates whether or not they want to admit it which pleases me immensely However I have no patience for stupidity and as I said already in my last update take some responsibility for the shitty choices you make instead of taking it out on me or other people who speak out against the delusion of HAESI don t mind intelligent debate that s why I leave comments open on my reviews but anyone who tries to shit it up in my comments section or REEEES about the tone of my reviews or tries to tell me that I don t understand or any of that shit WILL be met with a insta ban and your REEEEing will only strengthen my belief and stance against FAHAES bullshit That is all

Linda Bacon ✓ 2 Read & download Health at Every Size The Surprising Truth about Your Weight Read & download º PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free D healthy living manual that debunks the weight myths and translates the latest science into practical advice to help readers forever end their battle with weight. I have mixed feelings after reading Health at Every Size I have struggled for over 3 decades with eating disorders and even when my weight has been well within normal ranges ie a healthy BMI I have still felt pressure to diet to get thinner to generally not feel happy with who I am or how I look Over the years I ve read a variety of books on health fitness diet weight and disease including different diets such as Paleo keto vegetarian vegan Whole 30 Mediterranean etc and I kept seeing Health at Every Size referenced so I thought I d read itFirst my key takeaway might not be what the author intended My take is that restrictive dieting in which we listen to outside sources for guidance is the problem When we listen to societal and cultural norms telling us what is beautiful and what is not that s a problem When we listen to the government telling us what is healthy or not that s a problem When we listen to Weight Watchers or Jenny Craig or Atkins telling us what to eat when to eat and how much to eat that s a problem When we listen to that doofus guy who calls you a fat heifer when you re 5 6 130 lbs and a size 6 that s a problem When you listen to the nightly news screaming about the obesity epidemic and blaming every condition under the sun on being overweight that s a problemI m not saying nor do I think Linda Bacon is saying that we should reject science and go with only our feelings and instincts however too often the news gets it wrong As Bacon references correlation does not eual causation Studies may find a correlation between obesity and cancer Does that mean obesity causes cancer Maybebut until we study every single variable and its effect on getting cancer we cannot and should not take obesity causes cancer as truth Could it be that obese people get less exercise and are less active That they don t get proper sleep That they do not have good positive social networks That they are less likely to go to a doctor when ill That they are on medications Are they likely to smoke More likely to drink alcohol Eat processed foods Eat fewer vegetables and fruits So a link exists between certain conditions and obesity but could it be something else causing the cancerEually as important Bacon points out that when correlations are found it s typically for individuals who are very obese I think she wrote that it was at a BMI of 41 So this panic that someone who is 30 lbs overweight is going to get cancer heart disease and diabetes because of being overweight is simply wrong Taking it further the idea that the very institutions created to help us with these issues may very well be propagating this misinformation is pretty likely Drug companies weight loss organizations the government certain medical professions and the food industry have a huge stake in diet culture How can we truly trust what they tell usNow I had some issues with Health at Every Size For a book that claims not to be a diet book she spends an inordinate amount of time talking about what foods to eat how much activity to get etc More than once I was annoyed when I felt she fell into dieting tips propaganda As someone who has spent her entire adult life on and off restrictive diets I am sick to death of reading I should eat fiber to feel full that I should park further away and walk or that I should eat vegetables I skimmed over pretty much all of that and there was uite a bit Second she is a big proponent of intuitive eating in which a person must reject diet culture and learn to listen to her own body when it comes to food In other words our bodies will tell us when it is hungry and if we truly listen we will know exactly when what and how much to eat Perhaps she can live that way but for someone struggling with eating disorders it s an issue for me Why My intuition sucks I ve spent so many years not buyingeating certain foods that giving myself free rein is disastrous This book and others on the topic of intuitive eating will tell you that most people gain weight when first trying to learn this way of eating and unlearn old styles Again speaking as someone with an eating disorder I can say this is not good for my mental health I gained 30 lbs over a few months and I descended into a brutal and scary depression And not only that my orthopedic issues went absolutely bonkers I was diagnosed with widespread osteoarthritis in my 20s from my jaw and neck down to my toes and gaining weight directly caused my feet ankles knees hips and back to hurt A lot In fact I had to cancel a hiking holiday over Thanksgiving because my back was so acute and I had a miserable vacation in Dubrovnik because my ankles and knees were so inflamed no one told me Dubrovnik had 10 gabillion stairs I simply cannot live happily gaining weight while waiting for my intuition to override decades of diet culture Even with the parts I felt were flawed I think this is a critically important book Many will say it s all about fat acceptance and dismiss it outright however I think it s about acceptance in general and learning that the science of weight gain and loss is inherently flawed Lumping all people who are outside of healthy BMI range which is kind of a load of poo anyway as fat overweight obese etc and then building a multi billion dollar industry to all at once tear them down and try to rebuild them is a tragedy Even worse is when we apply flawed or fake science to bolster these ideas I think Bacon did a good job exposing the half truths and outright lies even though sometimes it felt like she went too far to the other side but I d still recommend the book
