Lynn M. Klein Certified Holistic Health Counselor

Although many seek out Lynn Klein of Hartsdale hoping her expertise will help them lose weight, she doesn't think of herself as a dietician.
Nor does she like being called a nutritionist, because she won't tell you what to eat, but encourage you to think about how you eat whatever it is you choose to eat. Klein's proper title is certified holistic health counselor; if that's too much of a mouthful for you, she also goes by "myth buster."
Klein sips green tea at the Scarsdale Starbucks while talking to the Inquirer. She isn't bone thin or über-athletic looking like others in her profession. The silver-haired, youthful 57-year-old looks the right weight for her age, like she practices what she preaches.
Klein wasn't always committed to living a healthy lifestyle. When she was in her 20s, she went on the Scarsdale Diet and lost 7 pounds in only two weeks. "It all came back and then some and that started the yo-yo dieting," she said, explaining that the several pounds she had lost through deprivation was just water weight. After trying out diet after diet over the years, a bout with adult-onset asthma in her early 40s triggered her life-changing career switch from investment adviser to health counselor.
She was inspired to develop her "Don't Weight" program - and to go back to school - while on a trip to Italy in 2004. "I didn't see anyone that was fat walking around," yet Italians eat all these foods we've been told aren't good for us, she said, like bread and pasta. During her first night in Rome, the restaurant she ate at served lard as an appetizer. "Americans are taught that fat is bad for you, but not all fats are created equal. We are stuck following conventional wisdom, but the truth is that we need fat, especially as we get older," Klein said.
Klein will also unveil some "secrets" to healthy eating gleaned from these societies. Italians, for example, cook their pasta al dente, a little on the chewy side, which takes more energy to digest. The Japanese stay slim even though the staple of their diet is white rice (not whole grain!). Klein said white rice is easier on the stomach. Servings of pasta and rice are smaller in these countries than they are in America, she said.
Klein's family hosted a Japanese exchange student and she was impressed with the girl's ability to gauge when she was hungry and full. "It's not about what you eat, but how you eat," she said.
Klein feels that too often Americans tend to graze on food all day long. She recommends sticking to three meals a day. Clients aren't told to count calories or balance the four food groups or master the pyramid. Klein considers only three "food groups" relevant to track in one's diet: carbohydrates, fat and protein.
Klein has studied energy healing, an important aspect of which is meditation. Finding a way to deal with stress apart from eating, whether through meditation, prayer or some other means, is essential to changing one's life, she said.
Klein doesn't tell her clients they need to go to the gym, instead suggesting ways for them to slip exercise into their normal daily routines.
She also works with clients to "get them past the notion that cooking is difficult and not fun."
She tells clients that depriving themselves of a food they crave often backfires. If they want lasagna, but eat a hardboiled egg to be "healthy," they might still be unsatisfied at the end of the meal. That often leads to binging later on to satisfy that unaddressed craving. Klein said she gives into her cravings, but doesn't go overboard.
Klein helps her clients create a lifestyle plan and stick with it to attain a healthful weight, but cautions that for most women that weight won't turn them into supermodels. "There are lots of people that come in lots of shapes. Everyone wants to be Barbie, but that's unattainable for most people. They say if a real woman had Barbie's proportions, she would stop menstruating," she said.
She advises clients to steer clear of undergoing surgeries to slim down, which can have "serious side effects."Unless the condition of morbid obesity is life-threatening, it's better to sit down and just face your bad habits. It's common sense," Klein said.
Although she doesn't tell clients what they can or cannot eat, she encourages them to "eat as close to nature as you can."
Klein was inspired to approach co-owner of the Ardsley DeCicco's, Joe DeCicco Jr. about holding her program there after she saw the store's meeting room space one day. DeCicco said in a press release, "Lynn impressed us with her tremendous knowledge and a passion for food that rivals our own.
Klein was a familiar face to the family-owned store before the partnership.
Klein was born in New York City, grew up in Yonkers and has spent much of her adult life in Hartsdale.

"If losing weight and keeping it off were as simple as restricting food for a period of time," says Klein, "we would all be slim.
