Health At Every Size (HAES®) is a weight inclusive approach to health. HAES® supports people of all sizes in addressing physical and mental needs by incorporating health-promoting behaviors. HAES® is an inclusive movement, recognizing that our social characteristics, such as size, race, national origin, sexuality, gender, disability status, and other attributes, are assets, and acknowledges and challenges the structural and systemic forces that impinge on living well.*
