A NON-DIET SOLUTION TO WEIGHT LOSS STRUGGLES
For over 40 years, women have been escaping to this welcoming retreat in beautiful Vermont to discover a whole new way of addressing issues around weight. The staff at Green Mountain at Fox Run is made of caring people who are experienced professionals at the forefront of the health and wellness fields. In fact, you’ll be introduced to one very special expert on your health and well-being during your experience here, the one that will help you change your life.
That expert is YOU.
OUR LIBERATING HEALTHY WEIGHT PHILOSOPHY
It’s not about losing weight. It’s about gaining health. The fact is, today’s approaches to weight loss aren’t working, and when they do, the benefits don’t last. At Green Mountain, you’ll find out what’s naturally healthy for YOU.
Forget about rules and dieting. This place is all about how to eat mindfully and acquire healthy habits around food. And the fitness you’ll experience is more like a celebration than a practice. You’ll learn to accept and embrace your body like a long, lost friend.
WOMEN’S CENTER FOR BINGE & EMOTIONAL EATING
Unlike any other women’s center in the country, we’ve opened this insurance-eligible program to fill an important need for women suffering from emotional eating disorders. Our center has a licensed clinical staff who specialize in issues that are particular to bingeing and emotional eating. Finally, a place created to help this growing problem, and the results are overwhelmingly positive.
How blessed I felt to be in this safe, supportive, comfortable and fun oasis of healing. To not be self-conscious about my weight or shape, to put my shame behind me and replace it with confidence in my new direction!Carol Proctor
WE DON'T PUT YOU ON A DIET
We provide nutrition. We teach our guests to eat normally, and for the right reasons, in response to your body’s natural hunger and satiety signals. We encourage mindful eating, a technique that guides you in using your internal cues to make decisions about when and what to eat. It involves choice, freedom and flexibility and is anything but boring and bland.
WILL I FIT IN ...
… and will I be able to keep up? We understand that everyone enters with their own fears and concerns. The good news is that women of all ages, sizes and fitness levels can participate fully in our program. If you have special dietary needs, we can accommodate that. We also offer extensive fitness modifications with enough variety to keep you feeling challenged and inspired. You’ll learn. You’ll be inspired. You’ll even have fun!
