NUTRITION – THE HEALTHY EATING PLAN
An Individualized Plan to Meet Your Needs
We understand everyone is unique, and depending on the goals of your stay, be it weight loss or training for a race your plan can be adjusted to better meet your individual metabolism to ensure you’re getting what you need to see maximum results.
Food is Information for Your Body
We care about portion size and the amount of calories — but we also place great emphasis on the quality of the food and when you eat it!
The food plan, specifically designed for the most effective health and weight loss results, by highly-experienced Registered Dietitians and Nutritionists, is developed as a Modified Elimination & Gentle Detox.
Below are the key components of the plan:
- Including whole, nutritious, unprocessed foods from organic, non-GMO and local sources.
- Excluding artificial sweeteners, food additives and preservatives, caffeine and alcohol.
- Limiting added sugars, fat, salt, gluten and dairy.
- A specific fuel/calorie number based on your individual muscle mass/BMR.
The purpose of this type of food plan is to ensure your body is getting all the nutrition it needs during your stay and to lighten the load on the natural detoxification system of the body. This becomes overworked for many reasons. Two of which are unhealthy food/beverage choices and the environment we live in. As your body works to cleanse itself of excesses toxins and fat, it will utilize the nutrients from all the healthy food you’ll be eating to work more effectively toward repairing and detoxifying your body which in turn makes you feel better and lose weight.
In combination with all you’ll be participating in during the program – exercise and sweating, increased fluid intake, sleep, and relaxation, you will feel the effects of the nutrients doing their job through increased energy and an improved overall feeling of well-being, as well as weight loss, by the end of your stay.
Cuisine – Eating Well and Enjoying It
