This is a topic I hear about a lot because I have been a fat rights activist/author for 25 years. There is a growing community of people in health-related professions who have, since the mid-80s, developed an approach called Health At Every Size.

If anyone is interested, I'd recommend an internet search on...
- Health At Every Size
- intuitive eating

Some resources, among the thousands possible...

- The Diet Survivors Handbook, by Matz and Frankel
