Nutritionist offers weight management in Vail

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – The Vitality Center at Vail Mountain Lodge combines all aspects of health and wellness in one facility, and this weekend, the focus is provided by Mary Horn, a nutritionist and exercise physiologist. Horn will offer a two-hour course on “Understanding Weight Management” on Friday followed by a Mindful Eating breakfast session on Saturday.

The Understanding Weight Management course will be the first in a series, and will focus on familiarity with body composition. Participants will receive a personal body composition analysis to use during the discussion, and will walk away with a keen understanding of what it takes to successfully manage a healthy weight.

“Whether you are at an ideal weight or feel you are overweight, this course is for you,” Horn said. “Simply managing weight can be challenging, and this course addresses just that, encouraging an empowered, educated approach to body composition and how it is affected by food choice, exercise intensity, and more.”

Saturday’s Mindful Eating breakfast is open to the public, and offers an attentive and grateful approach to eating. Breakfast will begin with a short introduction, after which participants will choose their breakfast foods from Terra Bistro’s buffet. The group will eat together thru 10 minutes of silence, placing their knife, fork, or spoon down after each bite. After the silent 10 minutes, conversation with breakfast will resume, while participants share their experience and join into Horn’s guided discussion.
