Tackling Britain’s Obesity Crisis: The Rise of Specialist Weight Management Holidays

In the midst of a rising obesity crisis, body-conscious Brits are turning to the hottest travel trend to combat weight gain. With a rise in overweight Britons searching further afield for long-term weight loss results, Health and Fitness Travel, the leading experts in tailor-made wellness holidays worldwide, has seen a recent rise in Brits 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 the negative effects of modern living making each Briton on average nearly 3 stone heavier today than 50 years ago, those struggling to reach and maintain their ideal weight 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 Britain’s position as the 2nd heaviest nation in Europe, 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 programmes 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 Britain to tackle its obesity epidemic one luxury fitness retreat at a time.
