New Lief Kick Start to Weight Loss Programme

with Champneys

This 6-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.

To support you in achieving your ideal weight, we will put together a programme for you that optimally supports your body. This includes our New Lief Kick Start Weight Loss menu plan, sustainable nutritional advice and many other different types of therapy to promote your activity. The precise nature and number of therapies are defined by our doctor and are tailored to your personal needs. 

What's it all about?

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 Lief’s legacy, the menu highlights an increased intake of plant-based meals but with the ability to enjoy animal products every so often. It 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.


For those guests who wish to maximise their results and wellbeing we offer accelerator packages to add on to your stay. And don’t forget this is time to unwind and enjoy our spa treatments to support your inch loss too! You’ll relax and reduce your stress levels with the use of an amazing wellness spa which has been designed to enhance results for wellbeing, weight loss and detoxification.
