A new business, Real Food Rescue, promises
online help with food issues.
A team of three nutrition professionals offer
information and advice to help clients get into
the habit of “eating more real food,” according
to its owner, nutritional therapist Kathryn Kos.
“This is a whole food, real food, real people,
real life program,” according to her website. “You
will transform your life by gasp eating real foods,”
the site states.
The first online series began in August. Kos
is now “fixing some glitches in the system,” and
plans to offer a new series in October or January.
Kos has been a nutritional therapist for about
a year, advising individuals on food choices,
nutritional issues, digestive issues, weight loss
problems and related matters, always emphasizing
the use of whole foods and “real foods.”
Her business, called Primal Bliss, operates
out of rented office space in Saratoga Springs,
Ballston Spa and Gansevoort. Kos also makes
house calls. She offers one-, three- and six- month
packages. The one-month package includes
three meetings with Kos. The other two
packages are less intensive, providing one or two
meetings a month.
The online program begins with a group telephone
call (recorded for those who cannot attend
in person). After that, there are weekly meetings
and daily supportive emails. The program also
provides a program guide and guidebooks on
such topics as fats and carbohydrates. There are
recipes, gift offers and discount coupons as well
and a private Facebook page.
The cost for the online program in $179. Prices
for individual mentoring vary with the length
and intensity of the program.
In addition to Kos, a certified nutritional
therapist, the Real Food Rescue team consists
of Laura Ligos, a registered dietician who also
teaches Crossfit, and Robin Morgan, a nutritional
health coach who specializes in advising on
gluten-free and grain-free foods.
Kos has a bachelors degree in movement
science from Westfield States College in Massachusetts
and a masters degree in rehabilitation
counseling from Springfield College, also in Massachusetts.
Her nutritional therapist certification
is from the Nutritional Therapy Association.
Kos is also beginning to offer the Real Food
Rescue program to businesses. She envisions
weekly “lunch and learn” sessions, either brown
bag lunches or meals catered by a Ballston Spa
company. She would supplement the weekly
lunches with daily emails and printed materials.
She sees such a program as a way to boost
