Fat farms and diet camps aren't what they used to be.

Many larger weight loss resorts flaunt luxury living, impractical gourmet food, lengthy spa treatments, crowded large group fitness routines and premium prices.

Our healthy living model is designed to provide comfort, practical fitness, small group training and balanced, healthy meals.

The goal is to provide a lifestyle you can replicate and maintain long term after you return home - without spending exorbitant amounts of money.

It's better than a weight loss resort, and far more than a diet camp or fat camp. No matter what your fitness level - our approach works!

What do they do at fat farms for seniors?

Despite the name, fat farms are rarely agricultural. Fat farms for seniors are residential weight loss retreats where overweight or obese older adults go to lose weight. Weight loss is achieved through a combination of regular exercise and a calorie-restricted diet. The types of activities available however, vary greatly depending on the program.

How much does it cost to go to a fat farm for seniors?

On average, fat farm / diet camp programs can cost between $2000 and $4000 per week. Some luxury weight loss programs cost substantially more. Many "cheaper" programs make up for their low advertised rates with hidden fees and extras. It is wise to look for programs with all-inclusive rates, and a price-match policy.
