Our healthy weight loss program is based on a four-week curriculum that can be taken one week at a time. The workshops offered each week of your stay are different and build on the previous weeks’ information and discussions. In order to practice the skills you learn, a stay of two or more weeks is highly recommended.
Three & Four Week Programs: “Building a Bridge from Your Past to Your Future”
Your best bet for developing new habits that will stay with you for a lifetime.
More time to practice and plan your transition back home. Three and four week stays offer the greatest opportunity to truly incorporate the Green Mountain approach into your life. Long-term participants are better able to achieve lasting weight loss and improved body image.
Our most comprehensive Green Mountain program, featuring the full set of core workshops in nutrition, fitness/exercise physiology, emotional eating, binge eating and body image. You’ll also enjoy more time to relax and see Vermont while forging new relationships with fellow participants to develop a support network for the future.
Our four-week program has been evaluated for its long-term results. A published study showed a five-year success rate more than 20 times that of other commercial or hospital-based programs. With more education, practice and repetition of new behaviors, your probability for long-term success is that much greater.
Two-Week Program: “The Building Blocks of Success”
Our most popular program for busy women who want to develop new skills and practice them before returning home.
Specifically designed for the busy woman with limited time and big goals for long-term success, our two-week program is often a more realistic time commitment for most women.
Our in-depth eating and behavioral workshops help you improve your ability to handle difficult situations (such as managing food cravings and eating in restaurants) and to cope with issues that may trigger overeating. Building on your accomplishments during the first week, you’ll begin to develop the confidence that only practice allows you to achieve.
Free yourself from the frustration and fear that dieting has imposed on you. By ‘testing the waters” and eating one night at one of the many restaurants in the area (if you choose to do so), you’ll begin to understand how our “eating to lose weight” approach can free you and help you succeed at home.
Introductory One-Week Program: “Getting Started”
Many participants have been able to successfully achieve their goals after just one week at Green Mountain.
This intensive one-week experience introduces you to the fundamentals of the Green Mountain approach. You’ll learn critical skills and strategies needed for successful health management and how to change the attitudes and behaviors that lead to overeating.
We help you create a “take-home” exercise routine. You’ll get started with a fitness program that is safe, comfortable and geared to your ability and suited to your schedule at home.
Jump start your commitment to a healthy weight and lifestyle or get back on track.Many women elect to come for the one-week program because of time restraints, then return to continue with the second, third and fourth week programs at later dates. If you’re already in shape or becoming fit, one week is also a great opportunity to fine-tune your physical activities to maximize benefits and tailor them to your personal lifestyle.
