What is a weightloss programme or retreat?Losing weight is a complex process that must take into account many factors: physical fitness, eating habits, personal well-being, life-style, relationships and environment.
Many people will find it difficult to know where to start, and it is important to make sure you lose weight in a way that is safe for your health.
A typical weight-loss programme is designed to consider all these factors. Specialists in weight-loss and obesity will be on hand, as well as nutrition and fitness experts to provide you with intensive support during your visit.
What is included in a typical weight-loss programme?While all weight-loss retreats are different, all the programmes should be tailored to an individual’s exact requirements.
Given the many factors that can influence weight-loss, there is no specific recipe, but a selection of different services depending on the philosophy of the medical director.
The ideal combination for any patient is certain to include weight-loss through diet and fitness alongside measures to boost self-confidence, emotional well-being and coaching preparation for life after the retreat. These can include:
- Analysis of eating habits and nutritional advice
- Personal training programme
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
- Sleep laboratory
- Healthy, light cuisine
- Medical examination and screening for diseases where obesity is a risk factor
- Measurement of body mass index, body fat percentage and cardiovascular fitness levels
- Medical consultations before, during and after the programme
- Detailed personalised diet and exercise programmes for resuming normal life
- Alternative therapies and spa treatments
Why should I go to a medical wellness resort?A weight-loss programme under the supervision of medical professionals will allow you to kick-start the process of losing weight.
It should also help you evaluate the reasons for being overweight, in order to help you make permanent changes in your lifestyle.
Being able to stay for a week or several in a relaxed and inspiring environment can help your focus on this challenge, as well as making it easy to change your habits.
Healthy cuisine, excellent fitness facilities and five-star accommodation are certain to make the process less daunting.
How much does a weight-loss programme cost?Optimum results are likely to be seen the longer you spend on the weight-loss retreats.
Many medical wellness resorts offer the option of prolonging your stay, in addition to offering highly personalised programmes.
Depending on the resort, it can cost from 2000€ – 3500€ per week, excluding accommodation, with reductions in subsequent weeks for patients who choose to stay for longer.
