Food Heaven Podcast

Nov 3, 2021

Today is a huge day for the Food Heaven podcast because we are chatting with one of the most important people in the HAES movement: Dr. Lindo Bacon. This week we chat with Dr. Bacon, about why all bodies are good bodies and should be supported in compassionate self-care. Dr. Bacon is a professor at UC Davis, a nutritionist, researcher, and author of two bestselling books, Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight, and the co-authored Body Respect: What Conventional Health Books Get Wrong, Leave Out, or Just Plain Fail to Understand about Weight. Listen as we chat with Lindo about the science behind why diets don’t work and how we can make peace with our bodies.
