Your caloric intake is controlled, and your food fat percentages are kept to optimal levels (along with your carbohydrates and proteins). You are nurtured and educated about the choices you make. At the same time you provide the effort to go to the fitness classes, hikes and walks that are best suited to your needs. The primary goal is not to lose weight - but rather to change a lifestyle that gave you extra un-wanted pounds. Once you begin to understand the healthy lifestyle and become more committed to it, then your body will gradually reduce to your optimum weight level. This is the only effective way to lose weight. Do not aim for rapid losses - the quicker you lose - the quicker you gain back. Executive Renewal Program: The Cadillac of health spa vacations at The Hills.
