about us

The Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH) is an international professional organization started in 2003. It is an all-volunteer not-for-profit organization, whose diverse membership is committed to Health At Every Size® (HAESSM) Principles.

The HAESSM (Health At Every Size® ) movement is a continuously evolving alternative to the weight-centered approach to treating clients and patients of all sizes. It is also a movement working to promote size acceptance, end weight discrimination, and lessen the cultural obsession with weight loss and thinness.  You can learn more about ASDAH and Health At Every Size® approach visit our website at www.sizediversityandhealth.org

  1. “Why We Get Fat” by Gary Taubes substitutes the problematic “calories in/calories out” model, for “calories-to-fat/calories-to-energy” model — seems closer to reality. What do you say? – Elizabeth

  2. Here is a great article/podcast of how much added sugar is really out there – the author really has a great way of expressing what ASDAH is trying to say: http://www.npr.org/2013/01/11/169144853/the-fallacies-of-fat
