Is HAES® backed by science?

The approach has indeed been supported by scientific evidence which is fantastic. 

 

Research shows that weight stigma and discrimination contribute to negative health outcomes. Furthermore, dieting and weight loss attempts have been shown to be associated with adverse health outcomes including increased risk of disordered eating, psychological distress, and long term weight gain. Studies have proved that taking health at every size and intuitive eating approach promotes healthy eating habits, improved body image, reduces disordered eating and long term weight stability.
