What is weight loss camp? Well, it’s a way to whip your weight loss program into shape.
It is also a term for a type of program where overweight and obese people go to lose weight. They are also referred to as a fitness camp and ‘fat farm’.
The differences between weight loss camp and any other ordinary camp is that it typically provides nutrition classes, weekly weigh-ins, and many more aerobic-based classes. The main goal of the weight loss camp is to enhance the health of the campers and to help them start losing weight as well as teach them about how to live healthy on the outside.
Some of these weight loss camps provide weight-loss results of two to six pounds per week on average. Remember though, the more overweight the person participating, the more they will lose in the program. The overall results of these weight loss camps vary widely and depend on the quality of the program and the physical makeup of the person attending.
Some of the newer programs not only focus on weight loss, but also on changing lifestyle behaviors. Generally, experts believe these are key elements of an effective program.
There have been a number of recent reality shows on the subject such as the popular “The biggest Loser’.
Of course before beginning any weight loss regime, consult your physician.
