It’s Time to Try Something Different

You don’t need a “fat farm,” because fat is not really the problem and because farms are for animals. You are a strong, capable woman who likely has simply never been taught how to mindfully enjoy food and healthy movement or effectively manage the stress in your life.

Just like fad diets, a fat farm vacation produces temporary results. You may return home slimmer, but before you know it, old patterns and behaviors take over and it all falls apart. The lost weight returns.

Achieving and Maintaining Your Healthy Weight Is More About the WHYs Than the WHATs

Over four decades ago, Green Mountain at Fox Run pioneered the first non-diet program in the US designed to help weight-struggling women make changes that last.

With a science-based program, empathetic compassion, and a deep understanding of a woman’s unique needs, we’ve helped thousands of women find peace with food, exercise, and body image.

You can uncover the roots of your struggles and develop new attitudes about food, exercise, and yourself that make new behaviors something that you want to do, rather than something you feel like you have to do.

“This program has been a godsend. When I got to Green Mountain, my body and spirit were in pain and broken. Eight months later, I am living more mindfully, practicing gratitude and keeping the negative self talk in check. I eat mindfully to nourish my body, not just to fill an emotional void. This program and all of the people involved in it are true professionals who truly care. I am very lucky to have discovered this amazing place. It not only helped put me on a path to healthy living and taught me how to love myself, but also helped to shift my perspective on life. I am filled with so much hope for a bright and beautiful life one day, one step, and one savored bite at a time!”
