Course Overview

Programs intended to prevent or reduce childhood obesity may be harmful to teens by increasing the stigma associated with obesity and fueling pressures to engage in unsafe weight control behaviors. Such dieting behaviors predict significant weight gain over time and may contribute to disordered eating patterns. In contrast, a non-diet approach promotes reconnection with internally directed hunger and satiety cues to facilitate eating competence, being active for energy and fun, and acceptance of the size and weight that result naturally from a health-supportive lifestyle. This course includes information health care professionals and fitness experts will need to shift from using a traditional, weight-centered model to a health-promoting, weight-neutral model for teens.
