How Much Weight Can You Lose in a Weight Loss Retreat?

How Much Weight Can You Lose in a Weight Loss Retreat?

Losing weight has always been hard work for many of us.

But it’s only in recent times that people have learnt about the negative effects of obesity and upped their game in terms of finding solutions. This, plus the popularity of weight loss programs like the Biggest Loser has alerted people to the problem of weight.

Occasionally, a quick fix to weight loss comes up and people spend a small fortune on it, unaware of the fact that there are no shortcuts to weight loss.

But despite their popularity, very few, if any, of these quick fixes actually work. And if they do, most people end up gaining the weight back immediately after losing it –they’re just temporary fixes to long-lasting problems.

With pills and equipment, the cycle is always the same –a fad develops, people jump on it, realize it’s a fake and dump it for the next fad.

But with weight-loss retreats, the story is somewhat different: people haven’t dumped them yet. They’re perhaps the only weight loss fixes that have stood the test of time.

And they’re working because they make people do what quick-fix programs make you avoid in the first place: eating healthy, avoiding junk, and exercising.

And unless you’re superhuman, none of that appeals to you.

How do Weight Loss Retreats Work?


So they’re more like fat camps, but only for adults. You join a group of people in a camp-like setting, with physicians and professionals to help you stay fit and healthy.

How long you stay depends on how much weight you want to lose. You’ll start noticing huge changes in your weight after staying there for just a few weeks.

In the first week, your body adjusts to the new diet and the increased activity, and this is always a good kick-start.

In the next few weeks, you raise your work out intensity and that’s when the changes start to appear.

Losing Weight…


The amount of weight you lose boils down to the effort you make in the retreats. It’s not entirely impossible to get out of the retreat a heavier person than you walked in.

The retreats provide very useful, state-of-the-art resources and how you use them determines the progress you make. Most services are optional, except for the properly rationed food, and you get to choose the physical exercises you do and the fitness classes you attend. This means you’re more or less responsible for your weight loss.

It’s also not uncommon for people to shed over 60 pounds during their stay at the retreats.

Their general health improves greatly due to improvements in cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
