NEDIC has a non-dieting, client-centred, feminist philosophy. We promote healthy lifestyles, including appropriate, enjoyable exercise and eating. NEDIC recognizes that the determinants of health are varied, and that weight is not an effective gauge of health, so we do not endorse dieting or diet centres. 

NEDIC strives to make our materials and services accessible to all Canadians regardless of financial status, geography and other potential barriers. Our goal is to provide information and resources so that individuals are empowered to make the decision best suited to their personal circumstance.
