Why Choose a Weight Loss Spa for Vacation?

August 10, 2012 by

Life is full of everyday stresses, and if you’re trying to lose weight, that stress can sabotage your weight loss efforts. Stress can cause your body to release hormones associated with slowing metabolism. Cortisol is one of these hormones which has been shown to encourage the buildup of abdominal fat.

If you really want to lose weight, a weight loss spa vacation is a perfect choice. It not only works as a springboard to losing weight, it does it in an atmosphere of encouragement with a touch of pampering.

Weight Loss Spas Initiate Lifestyle Changes

We hear it all the timeā€¦it’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle. If you’re the type of person who knows about healthy eating and exercise, but have a hard time sticking with it in the day-to-day rat race, a weight loss spa may be the vacation to get you on track.

You’ll have someone to make your healthy meals, time to participate in exercise you enjoy, and someone to guide and remind you of the habits and changes you need to make to reach your goals. This will include classes on dieting and cooking as well as meditative activities to help you deal with it all when you get back home.

Fitness Activities at Weight Loss Spas

One weight loss spa differs from the next in what fitness activities they offer. If you plan to spend your vacation at one of these spas, choose one that offers activities you enjoy. These can include:

  • Fitness classes
  • Golf
  • Hiking
  • Horse riding
  • Swimming
  • Tennis

Weight Loss Results

On average people gain about 10 pounds on vacation. If you choose to vacation at a weight loss spa, you’ll come home thinner than when you left and feeling better about yourself.

It still gives you a chance to relax in a vacation atmosphere, but instead of indulging by eating anything and everything you want, you’ll get to indulge yourself by developing habits that will help you beat the stress of daily life and stick to your diet when you go back home. The results will be a thinner, happier you!
