What is a weight loss camp or fat camp?

If you or someone you love has been struggling with weight loss, the term "fat camp" may already be familiar. But do you know what it's like?

Many people imagine being stuck in an army boot camp. Perhaps marching around 10 hours per day, or eating stale crackers. Movies and TV shows about youth fat camps haven't improved this perception.

In reality, weight loss camp is a long-established and finely-tuned industry - especially for adults.

Adult fat camps have been around for over 50 years in one form or another. Elizabeth Taylor famously attended a luxury weight loss camp in the 1970's. You can be sure there were no stale crackers found there!

The nutrition and the activities have changed over the years - but so has the demand. In the United States, two thirds of adults are overweight or obese - facing major health risks, career limitations and self esteem issues.

Adult weight loss camps today offer highly specialized programs. They are designed from the ground up to provide comfort and sophistication - and simultaneously the most effective and accelerated weight loss results possible.

How does weight loss camp work?

Habits and daily routine can be the most powerful enemies of weight loss.

The most important factor when attending weight loss camp, is that it pulls people out of their current environment. Getting away and spending a few weeks in a new setting gives you a clean slate. A fresh start.

The next major factor is nutrition.

For many, cooking healthy food is a major stumbling point - and fast food restaurants make it far too easy to go overboard. At weight loss camp, you don't need to worry about what's for dinner. You can rest assured that it will be satisfying, healthy and delicious. The best fat camp programs will even customize your individual meals to accommodate vegan, kosher or gluten-free diets as well as food allergies.

The third point in any effective fat camp program is activity.

Exercise makes all of the difference between just losing pounds on the scale, verses shedding inches and looking great in a mirror! The best weight loss camps offer a wide variety of fitness activities and can adjust for any age and any fitness level.

How is fat camp for adults different from youth and teen camps?

There are many high-quality weight loss camps for youth. Camp Shane and Camp Pocono Trails for example offer some of the best programs in the United States for kids, teens and young adults.

In many cases however, youth campers are sent to fat camp by their parents. They often have no real desire to be there or participate. Kids and teens require a much higher level of supervision than adults, and this makes the more traditional "summer camp" style of program an ideal approach.

Adult weight loss programs are attended by choice.

Adult campers attend because the environment will help them reach their goals. While there is a degree of supervision, it is far more relaxed than youth camps. The increased freedom is countered by a stronger degree of personal motivation. It is a service to help you reach your goals - not a prison to make you conform.

The experience is far more refined and individualized.

Adult campers usually expect to have private rooms with all the usual features found in a hotel or resort. Meals are far more refined and thought-out - while some camps have café-style group meals, the best camps provide individually prepared meals for each client every day. Activities typically depend on the location - a Florida beach located weight loss camp like Weight Crafters for example, offers many outdoor activities on the beach or in the water.

Maintaining your results does depend on your dedication and motivation - however no other diet or weight loss plan can provide the same long-term success rate as live-in weight loss programs. As a general rule, the combination of habit building, balanced nutrition and powerful exercise makes fat camps the most effective solution for long term results, hands down.

Different weight loss camps however, offer different success rates depending on their strategy. You should always do your research and make sure that the weight loss camp you're considering has the personalization, professionalism and experience to offer the best results.

If you have been struggling to lose weight and feel like nothing works, then weight loss camp will almost certainly help you turn things around. At Weight Crafters, we have seen countless clients arrive feeling hopeless and leave feeling empowered. Helping people is at the core of what we do, and the day that our weight loss camp programs stop helping people transform their lives, we will stop offering them.

In addition, many of our clients are empty-nesters looking to shape up and feel younger and more energetic as they approach retirement. Eating healthy and staying active are the most powerful ways to improve energy levels and quality of life. If you're looking to invest in your health, you can't do better.

I lost 45 pounds in 4 weeks! I could not believe it! I know that that is the exception, not the rule - but I have to give the trainers and the chef major credit. I feel great and I have my life back. I feel like I did when I was 30 years old again. Oh, and the massage lady - Fantastic!
