What are the Non-Diet and Health at Every Size® Approaches:

The Non-Diet (Health at Every Size®) Approach is an evidenced-based weight-neutral approach to health and is suitable for individuals presenting with weight and/or eating concerns such as:

 

  • Weight concern

  • Emotional overeating/Compulsive eating

  • Disordered eating patterns (restrictive eating, dieting behaviours, overeating)

  • Yo-yo dieting/Weight cycling

  • Body image concern

 

Evidence is now showing associations between dieting/weight loss attempts and weight gain, weight cycling, disordered eating patterns and body image dissatisfaction. The Non-Diet approach is showing promising results as one of the most helpful and least harmful ways to assist those with weight concern and body image dissatisfaction. We are a registered Health at Every Size service under HAES Australia.  

The Non-Diet focuses on encouraging healthy behaviours and includes:

  • Developing appetite awareness skills and learning to respond appropriately to internal cues of hunger-fullness

  • Mindful Eating/Intuitive Eating Training to improve and normalise eating behaviour and if appropriate decreasing overeating

  • Improving dietary quality and increasing food variety

  • Pursuit of physical activity that is enjoyable and sustainable 

  • Developing an understanding of body weight regulation and improving body image
