Our New Lief Weight Loss menu plan, named after Champneys founder - Stanley Lief and devotee of digestive health - has been devised with flexibility in mind. Following principles of Liefs legacy, the menu highlights an increased intake of plant-based meals but with the ability to enjoy animal products every so often.
The menu is calorie controlled, without eliminated food groups and by eating more plant foods it will give your body and conscience a rest from elevated amounts of ultra-processed foods, inflammatory animal proteins and unhealthy fats, gluten, dairy, and stressful stimulants including processed sugar, red alcohol and caffeine that appear in our diets all too often.
And eating more plant-based foods and less meat it is not only beneficial for health, but it’s also about eating sustainably in an attempt to reduce global, environmental problems – and we like the sound of that!
Less reliance on animal foods however, does not mean you need to be deprived of the excitement and satisfaction associated to mealtimes. With an energising breakfast, a daily 2 course lunch and 2 course evening meal, you’ll be delighted and determined to transfer these new eating habits to your real life, to continue and build on the benefits achieved whilst in resort.
We also encourage mindful eating to help us appreciate what we have, to slow down, optimise digestion and to be more in the moment. Dining in our exclusive New Lief Restaurant and sharing meals with fellow guests without the distractions of technology and day to day life, will mean mealtimes are a chance to enjoy the simplicity of food and life.
