How You Can Lose Weight by Making the Right Choices about What You Eat

At Lifestyle Health Retreats, we recognize that a healthy lifestyle is maintained by what happens once you get back home from your fitness, weight loss or yoga holiday. One of the important factors in long term weight loss is dictated by making the right choices when it comes to diet and nutrition. Avoiding fatty foods can do wonders for your body, as well as your energy levels and positive frame of mind. You should not forget that it is important to plan a proper diet chart in order to get rid of that excess weight. It is also important to understand that Nutrition & Fitness means understanding the difference between starvation and controlled food intake. We suggest you begin by having 6 to 7 small meals instead of 3 big ones in a 24 hour period. When opting for big meals, one tends to always over eat. It is important to realize that...

Discover the benefits of “5-P” Precision Medicine

By Dr. Kostas Papadopoulos Have you heard of it before? Have you ever experienced personalized medicine or “Precision Medicine”? Let me introduce you to the “5 P” medicine system. It is defined as Precise, Personalized, Predictive, Preventive, and Participatory. This can change your life, and your health. Precision medicine can transform health care as you know it. Popular approaches to medicine today take an “average person/patient” or “one-size-fits-all” approach to health.  EVERY aspect of life is represented by the marketers and the industries that want to maximize their investment returns without thinking about your personal health. Think about it, few things are tailored to the “special person” that you are. Whether it is clothes, food, supplements, travel, or cars, few things are specifically made to address you as an individual or consider your needs. Big companies often position themselves to have services that require you as a consumer to “find yourself” in their system....

UNRAVELING THE COMPLEXITIES OF YOGA

A group of yoga teacher friends and I were having a discussion recently about our students: despite our specific efforts to offer multiple versions, or levels, for some poses, our students almost always jump straight to the most difficult one. Often, this decision leads to a loss of strength and form, lots of shaking, and the constipated-grimace of overexertion and discomfort. We are all guilty of this sometimes, we join a class, look around the room, and want to feel like we are not the worst person in there. When I started practicing, having previously been focused on boxing, running, and weights, I was militant in my demands for physical exertion – to get my butt kicked, to get my work out! I found that yoga was a great way to accomplish this. It opened up new ways to use my entire body, to learn how to work each muscle, that each...

“Reversing & Averting Diabetes” before it rules your life!

By Dr. Kostas Papadopoulos One of my latest patients and a good American friend; we call him John, came to me one day looking tired….really tired. I thought it was because John had been working too hard lately as an English teacher in Bangkok due to many late hours, early mornings and too many KFC meals! He was seriously overweight yet that alone could not explain his breathlessness.  I had him to do a routine test of his blood sugar and at 47-years of age; he learned that he was diagnosed with Type II diabetes. With that simple test result, he joined the 80 million of his fellow countrymen and women over the age of 20, the 500 million Chinese, as well as the 30% of Middle Eastern populations with pre-diabetes (not full blown diabetes). On top of that we see diagnosed and undiagnosed full blown type II diabetes in about 20% of these...

Detox vs. Weight Loss Retreat – What is the right choice for you?

By Jeff Nieuwenhuizen “Should I do a detox or weight loss retreat?” This is probably one of the most important questions to ask yourself before booking a retreat. So many clients ask this question that it is worth explaining why a detox retreat is not the best choice if you want to lose weight.   Similarly, if you are facing severe health challenges that are diet related, (aside from weight issues) then you might consider detoxing a priority. First of all, let me say that doing a regular detox juice fast can be very beneficial, and belongs in everyone’s health toolkit.   And yes, you may well lose some weight whilst on a detox program. The problem is that detoxing and losing weight have opposing physiological processes. Some of the goals of detox programs are to give the digestive organs a break, allow the body to physically rest, and for the innate healing mechanisms...
