Seniors, How About A Weight Loss Vacation?

Always something new in vacations. Vacation. Weight loss. Senior Travel. How often is it that those words go together? Pretty much never. Now it’s about taking a vacation and losing weight along the way.

This Spa Index will help you find the weight loss destination just right for you both in the US and around the world. And women, take a look at Green Mountain At Fox Run, a for-women only health retreat. Many of us talk about dropping some weight and one recent study showed that almost half of all Americans would like to trim down.

Today there are more reasons than ever to get fit and healthy. Your mind and your body respond through increased energy levels, better function and improved stamina, allowing you to achieve more in life as you grow older. Myself, I  try to exercise three times a week at a local fitness center.

I have some friends who choose to work out at least five times a week for an hour or more. Work Out? I like to call it “muscle training.” That has more of a “ring” to it over a Work Out, doesn’t it? Work Out sounds like Work!

Fox News Provides Some Choices

If you’ve ever had a diet fail because it wasn’t practical long-term, you may want to try a weight loss resort.  From no-nonsense health clinics to luxurious spa-like experiences, these resorts are a far cry from the fat camps image that has been around for decades.

Most weight loss resorts encourage healthy living and eschew unrealistic and impractical diets.  So whether you’re looking to lose weight or gain knowledge about nutrition and health, Fox News lists 10 award-winning resorts for your perusal.

Mel says…

According to Mel Zuckerman, founder and chairman of Canyon Ranch, “Losing weight and becoming active changed my life profoundly … There is no way to exaggerate the difference that sustainable weight loss can make in an individual’s health, in how a person feels and what a person can accomplish.”

I discovered many terms like “rejuvenate,” “regenerate,” and “recharge” that are all part of enjoying weight loss interspersed with a great vacation. How does “lose 30 pounds in 30 days” sound to you? It can be done with an aggressive weight loss program coupled with some structured detox and individualized fitness activities.

Dietary and lifestyle changes are most often coupled with weight loss vacations. Here’s another twist to consider called “Fat Packing.” It provides participants a supportive outdoor environment in which slower hikers with backpacks can feel comfortable and enjoy themselves all while dropping pounds. If you love the outdoors, but are a little overweight or older and prefer not to be rushed, Fat Packing may be an option for you to consider.

Well, that about does it today.  I hope that you found this blog of interest and if nothing else, just fun to read. jeb
