With the holidays in full swing and plenty of hearty meals on the horizon, now might be the best time to get a jump on winter weight loss. Ilanit Blumenfeld, RDN, CDN, MPH, runs IBG Nutrition, her own private practice in Scarsdale, and has developed a weight loss program to help clients “eat healthier and make long lasting changes that work for them, depending on their particular needs and lifestyle.” Blumenfeld also teaches clients how to cook, what to order when eating out, and even provides them with healthful recipes.
From January 16 to February 13, Blumenfeld will be bringing her eating expertise to the Formé 2018 Weight Loss Challenge run out of the Formé Medical Center and Urgent Care in White Plains. Participants will receive a monthlong weight loss meal plan developed by Blumenfeld, daily nutrition advice on a Facebook community page, free and discounted gym memberships, and discounted prices at local restaurants, among other features.
The program costs $80 to join but, through December 29, Blumenfeld will be offering a $10 early bird discount. Plus, participants receive $1 back for each pound they lose and have the ability to win up to $1,500 in prizes. Those who want to turn the tide of yuletide weight gain may want to call (914) 723-900 for more information or search “Weight Loss Challenge” on eventbrite.com to join in on the challenge.
