If you are overweight and want or need to lose a significant amount of weight due to underlying medical issues or
just want to look and feel healthier but have tried everything you can think of with no success then maybe the next
step for you is one of many extreme weight loss boot camps.
Extreme weight loss boot camps will definitely put you through the paces. Each one is different in their approach
but all will help their clients learn how to eat, the right way, and help you get your body moving so you can burn
the fat and lose the weight.
They should also help you change the bad habits you have gotten yourself into and teach you what you need to know to
keep the weight off for good.
If you are going to make this commitment to yourself then you need to prepare. Do some research of the facility you
choose or research several so you get the best deal. Registering to be a part of one of these camps is not cheap but
they are worth every penny if you realize the goals you have set for yourself.
Depending on where you choose to attend one of these camps cost can range from $665.00 per day for a one week stay
down to $250.00 per day for 30 days or longer stays.
Workouts are custom tailored to your specific needs and abilities by certified fitness trainers who oversee your
workouts by getting right in there with you, not by walking around with a clipboard and a whistle.
Although losing weight is the major aspect of these camps, learning how to shop for healthy foods and then bringing
that food home and learning to cook it should be as important as losing the weight.
You may be successful at losing the weight while you are living at the camp but if you do not learn to change the
bad habits you have with food then when you leave, it will be too easy to fall back into the same old routines that
made you fat to begin with and you will gain the weight back in no time.
When researching this article I found that there are very few that require you to cook your own food. Most have
executive chefs on board who cook the meals for the clients registered at the camps.
This teaches you nothing about how to prepare your own food once you leave the camp. This is why people fail at
diets they never learn how to cook healthy meals on their own.
Now I am not saying that you can never again ever have something sweet or something that you shouldn’t have.
Moderation should also be taught, because even if you do eat something good for you you can still overdo and eat too
much of a good thing.
Extreme weight loss boot camps can be a wonderful way to lose those excess pounds and learn new, healthy ways to
keep the weight off and live a healthier lifestyle.
