How much should a person weigh to be healthy? Which diet should they follow? Should they diet at all? How long should they exercise? Everybodys got an opinion, and advice is administered like flu shots in December, but for the most part, its not much different from whats been printed, pitched, televised or sold for the last 40 years. Most women have heard it all before, and it hasnt made any difference in their ability to achieve their weight loss and fitness goals. Maybe its time for a different perspective, a new forum instead of the same old, tired story. Imagine a place where women feel comfortable and safe sharing their ideas, frustration and successes about dieting and weight with other women in search of that one single voice of reason.
After 33 years of offering women an alternative approach to diets (which only make you fat or fatter), Green Mountain is once again breaking new ground by launching A Weight Lifted, the Green Mountain at Fox Run Blog. A Weight Lifted (http://www.aweightlifted.blogs.com),is specifically designed for women seeking practical insight into their eating and health. Its a place to find straightforward information and commentary and to get livable, time-tested solutions to help make healthy weights a permanent reality in their lives.
Every week we hear from women frustrated with hearing the same old advice for managing their weight, says Marsha Hudnall, MS, RD, program director at Green Mountain. We want to help women see theres a different way of approaching the issue, a way that can free them of old attitudes and behaviors that consistently lead to failure. Part of what creates success is encouraging camaraderie with other like-minded women who find themselves in the same boat, and we hope the blog will do that.
Featuring posts from Hudnall and other visionary alumnae of the Green Mountain program, the blog will address topical issues surrounding weight loss, healthy eating, lifestyle, body image and diabetes. For example, the post Normal Eating vs. Perfect Eating, discusses how women often mistakenly resort to eating perfection in their effort to get healthy and lose weight, allowing for little flexibility, which is a must given todays busy lifestyles. In Out with the Old, In with the New, they poke fun at those who criticize the old Food Guide Pyramid as the reason for weight struggles in this country how could it be the reason when no one ate like it advised in the first place? See Jane Run talks about our modern times and a culture that leaves no time for taking care of ourselves, pointing out that the lifestyle, not the person, is at the root of failure. Grilled Vegetables provides a wealth of ways to prepare great-tasting vegetables for healthy eating and enjoyment. Delicious, healthy recipes developed by the chefs at Green Mountain at Fox Run are promised each week.
Any and all women who are tired of struggling with their weight and being let down by the latest diet or healthy lifestyle propaganda are welcome. You can visit A Weight Lifted, at http://www.aweightlifted.blogs.com.
