Green Mountain at Fox Run: The Novel
OK, here's the deal. If you're anything like me, you found out about Green Mountain online by searching for something like, "weight loss retreat". You probably found a bunch of other places, too, during your search, many of...More
The two weeks I spent at Green Mountain at the end of the summer were relaxing, enlivening and restorative. I felt the weight of the world lifted from my shoulders, the staff are extremely supportive and create an environment that fits what you need. The...More

Excellent food, accommodations, behavioral classes, staff and support!
Do this for yourself!!

Hi Kate! I do apologize for such an overdue response. I don't look at trip advisor very much. To answer your question if you have not already found a facility, I went to green mountain for five weeks. It was not a facility where I would say to you that you would get a kickstart on weight loss. This facility has been around much longer than most, and all I can tell you is that it is absolutely life-changing. Your mentality towards everything will change. I do suggest you consider staying for as long as possible. I have met lifelong friends and staff members that were pivotal in my healthy lifestyle. Since you're asking, in the five weeks of being there I lost 15 pounds. I think that is a reasonable number but again, you will learn that that is not the focus. When I got home, I lost another 20 pounds and have maintained that weight over a year since I left. My gift to myself is to go back to green mountain for one week a year to continue my healthy lifestyle. Since returning from Greenmountain, I have never considered a diet or other type of program for rapid weight loss or a kickstart to weight loss after the information and experience I had at green men. I really hope this helps. I went in the dead of winter, I'm from California so it seemed like a fun idea to trap around in the snow. I'm sure anytime of year is wonderful. Enjoy!
