They are a teaching hospital and a high-risk OB/GYN unit. They
are *all* more health conscious than fat conscious -- especially
if YOU say fat is not an issue. -- Anita

"women's center for healthy living without dieting"
Ludlow, Vermont 05149
We are a residential facility which we describe as a women's
retreat for healthy living without dieting. In operation since
1973, we were a pioneer in the nondiet approach to health and
weight management. Our focus is not on helping people make
changes in body weight, but on helping them understand and adopt
realistic, healthy lifestyles that promote health and
well-being, regardless of size. We believe there is a wide range
of healthy body size that is very dependent on the individual
and cannot be reflected in "ideal" weight charts or BMI figures.
We encourage positive body images and self-esteem independent of
body size, and are a promoter of the Health at Any Size concept.
