Weight Loss Retreats

Have you ever wondered why it is so hard to lose weight and keep it off – even if you try to diet and exercise? I mean, we all know the pattern. We make a decision to try to lose weight. We try to eat healthy. We join a gym. We lose a few pounds. And then we gain it all back.You would think it would be easy to lose weight. That all you have to do is diet and exercise. But, experience will teach you that it is much harder to lose weight than you would expect.That’s because most of us live in toxic environments. We are surrounded by obstacles that destroy our weight loss plans. It’s too easy to go out with your friends on Friday night and have a few drinks. The snack machine is always sitting in the corner of the office. You get caught up in work and become sedentary. After work, it becomes too easy to just sit in front of the couch and watch TV.Plus, your mind isn’t ready to really lose weight. You want to shed pounds, but deep down the relationship between your mind and your body is unhealthy.All these obstacles in your toxic environment help build and reinforce bad habits that are nearly impossible to break. These bad habits cause you to go off your diet and lose your motivation to exercise. You can only resist bad habits for so long. Eventually they win, and you go off your weight loss plan.

There’s nothing you can do about it as long as you stay in your toxic environment. Your bad habits will win and your subconscious will sabotage your weight loss goals.

This is why many people have chosen to go to weight loss retreats. Yet, many people don’t even know what weight loss retreats are – even though they are one of the only ways to really lose weight for the long term.

To put it simply, a weight loss retreat is somewhere you go for two to six weeks to get out of your toxic environment, break your old unhealthy habits, and develop new ones that will help you stay in shape for the rest of your life.

First-timers typically go to a weight loss retreat for a month. People who come back tend to stay for two weeks if they just want to cleanse their bodies and mind, or up to six weeks if they are in training for a marathon or similar event.

Weight loss retreats work for a variety of reasons. For one, you stay at the retreat the whole time – and there is no temptation at all for you to break your diet or avoid your exercise routine.

For another, when you are at the retreat you are part of a community – and everyone there is working for a common goal. You all want to lose weight, so you can support each other.

Weight loss retreats also have psychologists on staff who help you change the way your mind relates to your body. This is just as important as diet and exercise when it comes to losing weight. You have to have a healthy mental relationship with your body if you don’t want to sabotage yourself in the future. You need to understand why you gained weight in the first place. Then you can find a healthy mindspace that will be conducive to losing weight and keeping it off.

Finally, weight loss retreats are fun. One of the reasons that people often get lazy about going to the gym is that it can feel like a chore. A reason many people go off their diets is that the food becomes bland and boring.

Weight loss retreats show you how to work out effectively while enjoying the experience. If you associate working out with positive mental health and fun, you are far more likely to keep working out.

These retreats also serve food that is comparable to what you’d find in a five-star restaurant – yet it is designed by dieticians to be healthy and promote weight loss. When you actually learn to like to eat healthy food, you won’t want to go back to processed foods or fast food. They’ll even give you the recipes their world class chefs have created so you can recreate the meals in your own home!

Many weight loss retreats, like Live In Fitness in Playa del Ray, CA, are set up as luxury resorts. You have your own private room with premium cable and access to high-speed WiFi.

The concierges on duty will be willing to cater to your every whim. You will be a five-minute walk from the beach and great shopping – because you’ll need a new wardrobe for your new body.

The staff won’t create a one-size-fits-all exercise program. Instead, they’ll evaluate you and provide you with a personalized exercise routine that meets your unique needs. They won’t bully you into losing weight – they’ll help you feel good about yourself and the progress you are making.

Meanwhile you’ll be living in the lap of luxury, making new friends, and most importantly be out of your toxic environment.

By the time you return to the real world you will feel better about your body and yourself. You’ll feel healthier than you have in years. You will be in a better mental state. You’ll know why you were overweight to begin with, and understand how to relate to your body in a way that is much healthier.

This means that once you leave the weight loss retreat you will no longer be tempted by the toxic lifestyle you used to lead. It will seem negative, and you won’t want to go back to feeling sluggish and unhealthy.

Your old bad habits will be a thing of the past, and your new, healthier habits will feel so good, you’ll stick to them – all because you took the time and effort to go to a weight loss retreat and finally take control of your future.

Weight loss retreats are the most sensible solution when you are finally really ready to lose weight and keep it off.
