I am 46 years old, 5’2″ and 315 lbs. I have been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, and feel I’m stable enough to finally deal with my weight issue. I am taking the month of July off to attend a weight loss program. Which one do you recommend, Structure House or Green Mountain at Fox Run?”
Both Structure House in North Carolina and Green Mountain at Fox Run in Vermont are known for their weight loss programs and high success rates. There is, however, one major difference that makes it very clear to me that of the two, Structure House would be the better choice for you. Structure House has physicians and nurses on staff, while Green Mountain at Fox Run works more with exercise physiologists and nutritionists. Because of your medical history and the amount of weight you need to lose, you definitely want to be under a doctor’s supervision as you begin this exciting new chapter of your life, losing weight.
One last thought…I have noticed that for some people staying at the same place for an entire month is challenging. If that becomes the case for you, you might consider staying two weeks at Structure House followed by two weeks at Pritikin Longevity Center, which is in Florida. Both facilities have a medical staff and specialize in weight loss.
Good luck to you, and congratulations on your full commitment to get started!
