What does a weight loss retreat look like?
Before embarking on the weight loss programme, you will receive a health check. Some hotels also offer seminars and workshops, where you’ll learn more about how to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Besides light and healthy food, exercise is also very important; in order to lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you are consuming. Often, you will be under the supervision of a personal trainer. The exercise is easier to keep up, as you’ll be trying out various types. Plus, you’ll discover which forms of exercises are for you, so that you can continue exercising once home.
Why lose weight on holiday?
Losing weight is top of the New Year’s resolution list, every year. And there’s good reason why: around 45% of people in the Netherlands is over-weight. Being over-weight has all kinds of negative effects on health: it increases the chances of heart and vascular disease, joint complaints and type 2 diabetes. It also increases the chances of certain cancers. Often, those excess kilos get – quite literally – in the way. Clothes shopping is less fun, sport and exercise is harder, and fitness suffers.
Losing weight on holiday is easier
Losing weight is not easy. The temptation from all the unhealthy foods we are surrounded by on a daily basis is large. However, a holiday can provide the ideal opportunity to break out of those unhealthy eating and snacking habits. In a pleasant, comfortable environment you will enjoy fresh and light meals, which in itself often causes any cravings to disappear. Particularly when you’re spending your days doing sporting activities and having gorgeous, relaxing treatments! You will be supervised by a nutritional coach or dietician during a weight loss holiday. This will give you insights into your eating habits and teach you how to eat better and healthier, without getting hungry. During the holiday, those initial few kilos will drop off. And with the right tools in place, you can continue working towards a healthy weight once home.
What to expect from a weight loss holiday
Do not expect miracles: the goal of a weight loss holiday isn’t to lose ten kilos in as many days. The weight loss programmes are targeted at sensible, sustainable weight loss. The main thing is that you’re starting to work towards a healthier lifestyle. A slender body is important, but a healthy one is more important. A well-functioning body that’s getting everything it needs is much more valuable than striving for the perfect ideal of beauty.
Weight loss treatments
Seaweed wraps for cellulite, colonic hydrotherapy or treatments for lighter legs… there are often all kinds of treatments that support weight loss on spa menus. Make the most of them: every little helps.
Don’t drive yourself mad by weighing yourself daily: your weight will fluctuate, as we have a different amount of water in our bodies each day. It can be as much as two kilo’s difference! Use one, fixed weighing time. Lastly, it is better to take a year over a good programme to reach your ideal weight than give up after a few weeks out of frustration.
