Most of us believe that being fat is unhealthy and losing weight will extend lives. But acclaimed research scientist and author Linda Bacon shows that a focus on weight backfires – and the best way to deal with health concerns is to end the quest for thinness, focus on good health habits, and let your weight naturally settle. Bacon backs her claims on solid research. She has published in top scientific journals and is author of the highly acclaimed popular press books, Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight and Body Respect: What Conventional Health Books Get Wrong, Leave Out, or Just Fail to Understand about Weight.
