Life at Your Best
The information, Tools, and Strength You Need to Change Your Life Course

Living life at your best means looking great, feeling confident, enjoying healthy
relationships, and experiencing a long life with vitality. What you do, how you live, and what you eat, think, and believe may dramatically affect your health and life expectancy. Life at Your Best, developed by Advanced Cognitive Therapy of New York, combines clinically proven therapeutic breakthroughs with a lifestyle plan focused on health and longevity. Through this comprehensive approach, you can replace lifelong core themes and patterns that have sabotaged you in the past with healthy, adaptive behaviors that can actually help you change your life course. With Life at Your Best, you can work to stack the odds in your favor for living a longer life — and look and feel great at the same time.

Recognizing the mind-body connection with food and exercise, you can reappraise your initial urges and increase your odds of maintaining a healthy weight. Advanced Cognitive Therapy uses a cognitive-behavioral and schema therapy approach to help you identify and change chronic negative beliefs and thoughts that affect your emotions and lead to unhealthy behaviors. Integrating the latest research on weight and body fat loss with tools to help you manage your emotions, Life at Your Best is a lifestyle plan that may significantly increase your odds of long-term success.

The Life at Your Best Plan: Individual Assessment & Consultation
When you start the Life at Your Best Plan, you will work with a highly experienced therapist to identify your areas of strength to build on, and areas that stop you from reaching your goals. You will create a specific, comprehensive plan tailored to your needs, which you will track daily and adjust as needed.

While developing a detailed plan over the first three individual sessions, you will
examine your:

  • Prior attempts to change your lifestyle and their outcomes
  • Current lifestyle, including eating patterns, exercise, and social connections
  • Reasons for wanting to make changes
  • Attitudes toward yourself and your appearance
  • Weight, body fat percent, and physical and health goals

Using this information, you and your therapist will design an individualized plan — which may include con-tinued individual therapy, group therapy, support groups, and the latest resources to help you achieve measurable and sustainable results. Over the remaining sessions, you will be coached through the plan as you encounter the obstacles that have stopped you in the past, such as inability to control your portions or maintain your exercise routine. As you progress, you will easily be able to track your progress in eating patterns, exercise, significant health markers, and how you feel.

Call 212-725-7774 or email to schedule your consultation and start changing your life course today.
