Healthy Weight Loss
A juice fast and raw food programme is a naturally low calorie diet, 100% vegetarian, no animal foods or animals fats at all and it's absolutely jam packed and brimming with vital nutrients.
So the¬†great news about losing weight through a detox programme is that its a healthy way to lose weight.
Periods of time fasting is good for the body and soul. While¬†our overworked digestive system, the body gets to heal cleanse and repair.
Also, while focus is away from food, and all the ways we use foods, for emotional fullfillment, when we are stressed, to avoid certain feelings, even for pure enjoyment that we sometimes can't get enough of, when we remove food¬†we get in touch with ourselves at a deeper level, we learn about ourselves and have the chance to heal and change parts of ourselves we have been avoiding and suppressing, leading us to deeper spiritual awareness, healing and new ways to satisfy our¬†soul.
Average Weight Loss Per Week
Whilst there are no guarantees of how much weight you will lose, if you have it to lose, most people will drop 4-5 lbs per week, about 2 kilos per week.
Though I have known people lose more than this. This may also be down to results of colon cleansing. You would be amazed at how much weight some of us store in the colon !
Effortless Weight Loss
Another great thing about going away to a health retreat like this is, you don't even have to try. We have planned the menus, the exercise programme, (yoga, swimming and a bit of dancing), so you don't have to think about anything. You just have to show up.
You¬†focus on your healing, relaxing, learning, getting your health, energy and zest for life back and enjoying your retreat. The weight just melts away while you have a great time.
Relationship with Food
We can help you work on your relationship with food, and your beliefs about being able to reach your target weight, and maintain your natural weight, so that you can continue a healthy lifestyle and continue your weight loss when you return home if you wish.
This happens in our workshops using EFT and EMO techniques for releasing our emotions and beliefs, and through optional one to one healing that you can book with an experienced practitioner.
Reaching Your Target Weight and Lasting Weight Loss
Maintaining your target weight and keeping the weight off is about making permanant changes to your diet and lifestyle. If you return to old patterns then slowly and surely the weight will creep back on.
For some of us, making permanent changes in eating patterns or increasing regular exercise is alien to us. It may not have been part of who we are for many years. We almost have to create a new identity, a new you, who enjoys various forms of exercise so that its easy integrate into your lifestyle, who enjoys healthy eating and doesn't over eat becasue the inner programming is differnt.
Creating A New Identity for Health
Creating a new identity so that¬†our natural tendencies are to eat and live healthily means we have to change our beliefs about ourselves. What we believe is what manifests in our lives. So if we dont change these old limiting or sabotaging beliefs and replace them with new helpful beliefs, old patterns can re-emerge.
Again that we have powerful tools of EFT and EMO¬†to help us make these important inner changes, and the workshops give us the opportunity to identify the areas within that we want to change.
