In the midst of Australia’s obesity crisis comes the hottest travel trend to combat weight gain. Health and Fitness Travel, the leading experts in tailor-made wellness holidays worldwide, has seen a recent rise in Aussies deciding to banish the bulge for good.
From juicing cleanses in the Philippines to holistic medical treatments in Italy, specialist weight management retreats are becoming increasingly popular for those seeking more than just a quick fix to the complex issue of obesity.
With more than half of Australia’s population identified as obese , many are now tackling the crippling combination of inactive lifestyles and poor eating habits. Technology leads people to overlook the outdoors, desk jobs sap energy once reserved for daily activity and for many, fast food is too convenient to ignore, allowing weight management holidays to offer a more sustainable, long-term solution to fighting the rising obesity crisis. With Australia’s position as one of the most obese nations in the world , a new era of wellness travel is offering a great way to learn new approaches to healthy living and develop good habits to bring home.
With our collective life spans increasing by approximately 30 years, it is now more important than ever to learn and adopt a healthier lifestyle. Escaping the dangerous reliance on today’s ‘convenience lifestyle’, weight management holidays give control back to the mind and body, with personalised fitness programs and healthy nutrition plans to eliminate excess fat, balance metabolism and reduce blood sugar levels.
Providing the long-term answer to yo-yo dieting and fitness fads, Health and Fitness Travel, share their top 5 weight management holidays that will arm Australia to tackle its obesity epidemic one wellness retreat at a time.
