What: Health at Every Size offers a new and compassionate approach to weight and well-being, shifting the focus away from the frustrating pursuit of weight loss in favour of self-care and developing long-term healthy habits. Over 4 sessions, we will explore nutrition, and building a positive relationship with ourselves and with food, in a friendly and supportive group. Classes will include discussion, presentations including nutrition and science, group work, a bit of homework and some fun activities too.
