You are what you eat

eat-healthy

We all know that what we eat affects everything from our weight and skin to our energy levels and mood.  One size does not fit all and there are so many food choices out there.  It can be very confusing and fad diets are just not sustainable and you end up piling the weight back on and feeling properly fed up!  

More and more people are learning about the immense benefits of alternative diets and detoxes through health retreat programmes. They are the chance to try a new direction, understand the science behind it, the benefits that it might bring and return with the necessary knowledge to continue at home. For example, lots of people are interested in a raw food diet but are not quite sure where to begin with trying it out and worry that it will be too time-consuming or difficult to incorporate into their everyday life without lots of research. Plus they worry about getting the right the right amount of vitamins or having to completely opt out of socialising.  

Weight loss is one of the top reasons that people head off to a retreat as carrying extra weight can put a burden on your physically and emotionally. We all feel better in ourselves when are at the weight that we feel most comfortable with – usually your jeans are a good indication! It's not a case of wanting to starve yourself down to an unrealistic weight, it's a case of learning to eat sensibly, listen to your body and to know when you've eaten enough.

Our retreats (have a look at our suggested ones below) have been very carefully vetted and chosen to deliver results.  They are safe and sustainable and, more importantly, you are educated to continue your healthy eating once you return home. 

Of course not everyone can take time out to get away, so learning to cook healthy meals at cookery workshops is also a popular option. It's good fun to do with a group of friends or your partner and you can all encourage each other to try variations on the dishes you've learnt going forward.

We run very popular nutrition workshops in London aimed at busy people who want to eat well but are time poor - take a look at our forthcoming dates and we hope to see you there!
