- health at every size
January 20, 2020 | Alyssa Y
Inspired by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch's work on Intuitive Eating in 1995, and based on the Health at Every Size movement, a slew of new and older titles are available that argue that the best way to be on a diet is to be on no diet at all. These books state that dieting, particularly fad dieting, can cause more emotional, mental, and physical damage that it's worth, and they advocate for gentle nutrition and a return to one's instincts in the kitchen. Many of these authors are also podcasters, many of which overlap or interview each other.

Rebecca Scritchfield offers a unique approach to Intuitive Eating, encouraging readers to create 'upward spirals' in their lives, and craft belief in themselves and kindness towards their bodies.

Health at every size from a fitness perspective, Steph Gaudreau (creator of successful fitness-emotion-nutrition podcast Harder to Kill Radio) lines out the four pillars of health, which she advocates is achievable without dieting or engaging in diet culture.
