Healthy Weight Loss Weeks

Start 2019 with our fabulous new healthy weight loss week. This new special package is only available in January and February 2019. It is designed to help you to lose weight, in a healthy way. We give you extra support, more education and additional sessions to set you up for success.

This special week is available for arrival any Tuesday or Saturday from Saturday 5th January 2019 to Saturday 26th February 2019 inclusive.

We believe healthy weight loss comes from making changes to your lifestyle, not just during your stay at the retreat, but also when you return home. So, you will see results during your week, however our aim is to give you the tools to continue once you return home at the end of the week. As well as weight loss, you might also experience a reduction in your blood pressure, as your body starts to relax.

Lose weight, in a healthy way

To lose weight and reach your optimal weight, includes many areas of life: what you eat, what you do and how you think. This week is not a crash diet, or a boot camp. This healthy weight loss week will give you a boost, a start to creating a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.

As part of this weight loss week we recommend that you juice for at least three days. After 3 days you can choose to continue to juice or you could swap to eating one plant-based meal a day (click on the links to read more about juicing and food). We strongly recommend that you eat at least one plant-based meal before you leave. We will talk to you about this in your 1:1 session when you arrive at the retreat and our programme team will be available throughout your stay for support.

You will have a session with a personal trainer, with takeaway tips and actions for you to do at home, to maintain your healthy weight. Get your body moving in our daily guided walks through the lovely local area – into the natural park, along the coast and into the woods. At the same time, it´s important to tone your body, in our daily yoga classes, to gain both strength and flexibility. And there are also 60 minutes of exercise classes every day, which will include rebounding, leg bums and tums, fat-burn and more.

Included in the package is a new session – Body Composition Analysis. In your first session we will measure your weight, body / fat / water mass, BMI (body mass index), BMR (basal metabolic rate), plus more. We will explain to you what all these numbers mean AND give you tips on what you can do to make positive steps towards losing weight, improving your BMI and more. Before you leave you will repeat the measurements, so you can see the results of your week.

Here at La Crisalida we believe education is important to create success, so during your week you will also participate in a group cooking demonstration, and a group juicing demonstration where we give you recipes and tips for cooking plant-based food and making juices at home. You will also have a special 3-hour session, packed with hands-on cooking experience, nutrition information and more, so you feel confident about returning home and continuing in your new healthy lifestyle. There will also be workshops to help with mindset, to create successful thinking about your weight loss and life.

Choose your accommodation to suit your personal needs – whether it´s a shared studio, private studio or your own private bedroom in a shared apartment, it´s your choice.

Common questions and answers about the healthy weight loss week

  • Q.

    Can I stay extra nights?


    Yes, if you want to book extra nights you can. You can add another 7 nights on the special rate. If you want one or two extra nights then contact reception and you would pay at the usual retreat rate. (See more on our prices page).

  • Q.

    How much weight will I lose?


    By juicing and following the programme of activities, many people will lose 1 lb a day (1 kilo over 2 days). Remember, the more you take part in the activities the more likely you will achieve your weight loss goals. Please note, we cannot guarantee any specific weight loss results. Every person is different and their results will vary. Juicing is a great way to kick start weight loss and to introduce some healthy habits, so that you can make a longer-term lifestyle change when you return home.

  • Q.

    I only have five nights holiday, can I book this package?


    Sorry, no. This special week is a package for 7 nights. If you want to, you can book a standard detox and weight loss retreat for 5 nights. You can then purchase the additional sessions at the retreat, for example the body composition analysis session. If you want to book the package, you can choose to leave early, however there is no refund for nights not used.

  • Q.

    What time should I arrive or leave?


    You can arrive any time of day on any Tuesday or Saturday. We suggest that you arrive by 1pm, so that you have lunch and the whole afternoon. On your day of departure, you can leave at any time. On the day of arrival your room might not be ready until 2pm. On the day of departure we ask that you leave your room by 11am.
