In general, vacations and sticking to a diet do not mix. Many of us will actually do the classic “crash diet” just to loose some extra weight before heading off on vacation because we want to look our best. Then, once the vacation starts, indulgence begins and concerns about dieting, healthy eating and exercise are put in the far reaches of our minds, and we quickly gain the weight that took weeks, or even months, to lose.

 

Weight Loss Spas and Weight Loss Vacations

Weight Loss Spas and Weight Loss Vacations that offer weight loss vacation programs are becoming a popular alternative destination for people looking for a healthier way to vacation. Weight Loss Spas and Weight Loss Holidays not only offer some of the most luxurious vacation settings, but also have the amenities and professionals that specialize in weight loss, fitness, hiking and world class gourmet spa cuisine. A vacation spent at a Weight Loss Spa will bring both your mind and body to a healthier state, leaving you feeling refreshed and invigorated after your vacation instead of sluggish and heavy.

 

Most people will lose a few pounds during their weight loss holidays. Of course over a week or two, anything more than that would be unhealthy. Weight Loss vacation programs can also assist you to develop lifestyle programs that are specific for your health needs, including diabetes prevention and control, cardiovascular health, stress management and smoking cessation.

Quoting jan:
I wonder if these really are as good as they seem for weight loss. They look like they’re a wonderful, healthy escape. I guess I’d consider this the best place to go if you’re looking for somewhere “safe” when you’re on a diet. I know that one of my main problems with traveling is weight gain. I certainly wouldn’t consider this a diet in itself, though.

I don't find that these are fantastic for weight loss. Instead, I find that they focus more on mental and physical health so that when you go home, you're far more motivated for weight loss and you have more ideas about how you want to achieve it.

The last time I went to one of these resorts, I actually gained weight! It wasn’t too disappointing, though, because I hiked for several hours, I swam, and I enjoyed a number of different kinds of aqua and massage therapies. It was the wonderful (and still healthy) food that was the kicker that made weight gain happen. The food may have excellent ingredients, but it’s so good that I find myself stuffing my face more than usual. So even though I don’t lose weight, I’d still call these places good for weight loss because when I come home, I’m ready to exercise and eat great.

I just realized that this would be a very good idea for a honeymoon. Though the couple will still be pampered, they can do a lot of things together in the daytime, stay healthy, and then enjoy the resort when they want to wind down and be romantic.

The perfect opportunity to exercise, relax, and eat extremely flavorful food that is healthy, too. Relax your mind, body, and soul!

0 # No more fat camps! Spas!1000kw 2012-01-18 02:59
When I first heard of weight loss spas, I thought that they were just a fancy name for a fat camp which would be like undergoing expensive torture. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.

When you go to one of the really great weight loss spas, it’s like you’re heading to a healthy little piece of heaven, where you can balance nutritious, flavorful foods with lots of fun activities and pampering yourself with spa services until you just don’t think you could ever be more relaxed.

It’s everything a vacation should be.

These spas are absolutely gorgeous and they help you to make sure that you eat healthy and keep active while you’re on vacation, but at the same time, you’re still pampered and live in luxury.

That’s exactly what we should all get from a vacation. Sure, it’s fun to lie on the beach with a cocktail, but it just means that you’re using your precious relaxing time to pollute your body and make it harder to lose weight.

Most of us complain that the reason that we don’t lose weight is that we don’t have time to exercise and eat right – so these spas are just the thing to make us show that we can treat ourselves right!

These look very relaxing and like a good healthy vacation, but they're also really expensive. Reading into these places, it doesn't look like it's for the faint of wallet! I guess if you have the budget, they'd be phenomenal, but all of the differnet fees add up very quickly. In an economy like this one, I'm just not sure that it's wise. I'll just keep hoping and playing the lottery!
