The purpose of a retreat is not quick weight loss. A 1,500 -1,800 calorie daily menu divided into three meals should satisfy and aid your progress toward your goals. Nutritional information is from “Real Life: The Hands-on Pounds-off Guide”. We center on improving eating habits, increasing physical activity and increasing positive attitude while making new friends. Sessions target a variety of topics including nutrition information, self-esteem, and goal setting.

Retreat focuses on helping each other take and keep off pounds sensibly
