And a holiday at a special wellness resort could help you detox and lose weight without realizing it. Instead of switching to a limited diet of beetroot and broccoli, detoxing means enjoying a very extensive range of tasty whole foods in their most natural state, limiting anything processed.
Lack of energy, hormonal imbalance, digestive problems, arthritic conditions or headaches are all signs that you may need to detox. Taking a wellness holiday is an ideal opportunity to learn how to plan your diet to tackle these problems. And if you are hoping to lose weight as well, this could be the ideal type of holiday for you.
It isn’t necessary to go to a boot-camp or follow a scary diet. Places like ‘Tierra de Suenos’ in Costa Rica , Ti Sana in the Lombardy region of Italy, or ‘Les Paletuviers’ in Senegal offer this kind of ‘pure’ food. These holidays will provide you with a personalized diet plan which gives you all the nutrients you need, making your eating highly nutritional using fresh and healthy ingredients. Some of these resorts also lay on activities such as walking, yoga and Pilates, which are all pleasant and non-stressful ways of exercising. Such activities will help you to raise your heart rate, boost your metabolism and promote weight loss.
An additional benefit is that taking a wellness holiday gives you the opportunity to pay attention to your emotional and mental health – the time and space to focus on yourself: crucial if you are going to achieve your weight loss goals.
The holiday combination of overhauling your diet and exercise is vital. Dieting is sometimes seen as more important than exercise for weight loss. But exercise will help to raise your metabolic rate thus increasing the number of calories you burn. And the endorphins produced during exercise will improve your psychological state and help put you in the right frame of mind for rejigging your diet.
So the Healthy Holiday or detox vacation actually creates the perfect environment for clicking the restart button on your body; abstain from the negative stresses of everyday life; breathe healthier air; get more vitamin D from sunshine; acquire more focus and mindfulness. Eradicate the poor elements from your diet; get additional movement, plus food and liquids that replenish.
