Are these your resolutions yet again this year?
The Katonah Program, a new concierge weight loss and management program, in downtown Katonah is now fully operational and taking new clients. After completing a number of trial cases, the program began taking new clients only 6 months ago. All trial and full program participants have already succeeded. Success is defined by the loss of a minimum of 10 pounds during phase 1 of the program. While this might not seem like a big challenge, the power of this program is in the approach, which makes it much more likely that once you lose the ten pounds, you keep it off. Ten pounds can make a big difference, even if your end goal is 30 or 40 or even 50 pounds. The health benefits of such weight loss cannot be minimized. The added benefit of this program is that you work with a team of professionals who are all on your side and who work together to ensure your success.
Clients learn individualized strategies that help them eat right, eat less and exercise more resulting in improved health, positive self-image and self confidence.
The Katonah Program Inc., is a professionally supervised, multi-disciplinary weight loss and health management program. The program is based on a bio-psycho-social understanding of weight gain, and weight loss. The goal for every client is to lose a minimum of 10 pounds in 3 months, and learn how to KEEP IT OFF! Food guidelines are based upon traditional calorie counting principals, using standard nutritional guidelines.
The program is simple to follow and there are NO SPECIAL FOODS OR SUPPLEMENTS to purchase.
Clients are supervised by a personal team consisting of a licensed clinical social worker, a registered dietitian, and a personal trainer. They are seen weekly by their social worker to review daily eating patterns which are identified through a log that is submitted and reviewed on a daily basis. Sessions focus on identifying individual behaviors that may sabotage weight loss, as well as those behaviors that encourage healthy weight loss.
A personal trainer educates clients and supervises individual fitness plans. Clients meet with their personal trainer no less than bi-monthly for 12 weeks. A fully equipped cardio-vascular gym is available for daily use (except Sundays), for the duration of the program.
The personal team communicates frequently about each client, and formally meets weekly to discuss the client’s progress and needs. Adjustments and recommendations are continually made based on the individual’s progress towards their goal. Areas of weakness are identified, and special attention is paid to those areas, be it more supervised exercise, deeper exploration of stress-eating behaviors, or improved nutritional education, just to name a few.
The Katonah Program has successfully helped a wide range of people achieve their weight and overall health goals. Some of the clients include: Insulin-resistant teens, menopausal (peri and post) women, sedentary executives, young mothers, and others.
The Katonah Program, Inc. is not a quick fix but it is a fix that works. For clients who want to diet for the very last time, all they have to do it call for an initial, complimentary consultation conducted by a licensed clinical social worker.
