The benefits of visiting a weight loss retreat

You are probably reading this and asking yourself why should I invest what seems like a significant sum of money to attend a weight loss retreat? Every day we meet people who have tried every possible method to lose weight including fad diets, extreme exercise regimes, gym memberships, bariatric surgery, weight loss pills. The list goes on and on, no matter how extreme or ridiculous, we have encountered someone who has tried it. This is driven largely by modern day societies desire for quick fixes, no matter how complex the problem.

If you Google “weight loss” you will be presented with page upon page instructing you on the steps you should take shed those unwanted pounds. Having worked with tens of thousands of people of varying ages, genders and demographics we know that there is no quick fix so any solution that advocates fast weight loss is probably unsustainable. These so called fast weight loss methods can yield results in the short term, but most people who are overweight have developed unhealthy patterns over years if not decades. This means that eventually most people will inevitably revert back to learnt behaviors resulting in the unwanted weight coming back. The emotional impact of this can be devastating because the euphoria because you looked good and finally felt you found a solution that worked. As the weight eventually piles back on, you are left feeling disheartened, lost and somewhat resigned.

      The number of weeks you stay depends very much on the goal you want to achieve during your stay. Guests staying 1 week get a great kickstart, this is because their bodies are adjusting to the changes in food and increased activity. Guests staying multiple weeks make significant progress because after the initial adjustment they feel much healthier and are able to increase the intensity of their workouts. Also when staying multiple weeks, people can arrange one-on-one sessions if they need additional help in any specific area.

    Do you have any catalogs that you can send out about your resorts and how much they cost. Also, how long is each retreat because when you work you have to plan ahead.

      Our program runs in 7-day cycles with the minimum stay being one week. Check-in and check-out are always on Sunday. Guests are welcome to stay for as long as they wish with many guests stay for multiple weeks at a time.

    That is a good point that for weight loss, exercise is a must have. Maybe I should start going to a place that can help me to effectively exercise and lose weight. That is something I am going to have to start looking for soon.

    Thanks for explaining how going to a weight loss center can help you meet like-minded people. I agree that you want to visit a center in order to know they are right for you. My husband and I are looking for a way to lose weight, so maybe we should consider visiting a center.
