About Dr. Lindo Bacon
Best known for their paradigm-shifting research and advocacy upending the weight discourse, Dr. Lindo Bacon’s inspiring message takes us beyond size, to shaping a culture of empathy, equity and true belonging.
Dr. Bacon has mined their deep academic proficiency, wide-ranging clinical expertise and own personal experience to write two best-selling books, Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight, and the co-authored Body Respect: What Conventional Health Books Get Wrong, Leave Out, or Just Plain Fail to Understand about Weight. Both are credited with transforming the weight discourse and inspiring a hopeful new course for the global body positivity movement. Bacon’s work is inspired by lessons learned through three graduate degrees in health science, including a PhD in physiology, as well as clinical and research experience.
A compelling speaker, writer and storyteller, Dr. Bacon delivers a unique blend of academic expertise, clinical experience, and social justice advocacy, all couched in a raw honesty and compassion that touch and inspire.
New Self-Care for Diabetes
I created an online learning and virtual support group for people with diabetes or concerns about pre-diabetes with fellow dietitian, Glenys Oyston. Our self-care for diabetes program is for you if you want support to enhance your well-being without dieting or focusing on your weight.
With 14 jam-packed education modules, resources, live group calls, a moderated online community and discounts on 1/1 visits with us, we got your back with this compassionate place for diagnosis and health shame resilience.
