You Don't Need Fat Farms, Fat Camps or Weight Loss Boot Camps

If you’re like many women who have lost weight only to gain it back, you already know that quick fixes like diets, boot camps, fat farms and fat camps for adults simply don’t work long-term.

What We Are: A Healthy Living Retreat to End Struggles with Weight Loss

We’ve been helping women develop a healthy relationship with food, exercise and body image for over 45 years. We’re about real women getting healthier and happier and end eating and weight struggles for good.

What We’re Not: A Short-Term Diet and Exercise Program or Fat Farm

We’re different from other adult weight loss programs that put women on restrictive diets and excessive exercise regimens like “fat farms” and “weight loss boot camps”. These programs don’t bring about lasting behavior change. And importantly, research shows restrictive diets cause many people to gain weight instead of lose it.

Fat Farms and Boot Camps are Short-Term, Superficial Programs

We’re not an adult fat farm, fat camp, or anything else like that. A traditional weight loss camp and the horrendous-sounding “fat farm” doesn’t work long-term for most women who struggle with eating, exercise and weight. A fat farm doesn’t address the behavioral and emotional issues that stand between you and a healthy weight.

We Are A Nurturing, Supportive Retreat Exclusively for Women

Working through issues such as emotional eating and self acceptance is key to establishing a long-term healthy eating and living pattern. Our non-diet program is designed to meet the changing needs and realities of today’s busy woman.

We Immerse You in Healthy Living to Produce Longer-Lasting Results

No other program approaches long-term weight loss for women the way we do or can match our documented, long-term success rates. That’s the reason why thousands of women who have been yo-yo dieters choose Green Mountain at Fox Run instead of a fat farm.
