Disordered Eating and Obesity

This document is the result of the work of the BC Promoting Healthy Weights Working Group. The document outlines the evidence that suggests “public health messages focusing on the benefits of weight loss or the consequences of obesity may inadvertently promote disordered eating.” It is a very important document setting out the actions necessary to reduce the unintentional harms that could result from obesity reduction policies and programs.
