New Lief Kick Start to Weight Loss Programme

with Champneys

This 5-night retreat is ideal to kick-start your desire to change body shape and lose weight, whilst learning about ways to work successfully towards longer term weight management. Enjoy each day combining relaxation, activity and Champneys spa treatments whilst embracing our ‘kick start to weight loss menu’ to nourish your mind and body and put yourself on a path towards optimising health and wellbeing. 

Our New Lief Kick Start Weight Loss menu plan, named after Champneys founder Stanley Lief, devotee of digestive health, has been devised with flexibility in mind. Following principles of Leif’s legacy, the menu highlights an increased intake of plant-based meals but with the ability to enjoy animal products every so often.

What's it all about?

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 meat, alcohol, and caffeine that appear in our diets all too often.

Eating more plant-based foods and less meat it is not only beneficial for health, but it is also about eating sustainably 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. 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.

Please note this retreat is recommended for people with a BMI of 25+ (weight/height2). If you have any medical issues, please ensure that you have seen a doctor before arrival who has given you the all clear to attend. For any food intolerances we must be made aware of by email before arrival.

The New Lief weight loss menu cannot be guaranteed as 100% free from gluten and dairy as standard. If you require as such, please ensure you contact us to inform us of this, or any other allergies / special dietary need requests via email in good time ahead of your stay.
