About the 5 Step 'Body and Soul Retreats' Programme for
Guaranteed Fat Loss and Health & Fitness TM

5 steps to guaranteed weight loss

This proven programme first strips off the body fat, by using a combination of variables that are 100% personalised: Then, the correct combination of organic and fresh nutrition, activity and life technologies are integrated together to form a SMART 100% customised package that works immediately, and for the long term! Your body weight will then reduce to the levels you deserve.

At 'Body and Soul Retreats', the team understand what the mind and body has already endured in its attempt(s) to lose weight and to be healthy and fit. It is for this reason why this proven programme was first designed.

It comprises of a combination of fresh organic balanced nutrition, and healthy activity all within the purity of nature. Eating the right food is essential for losing weight in a balanced and healthy way. They don't promote fad or crash diets, because they are unhealthy for the body in the long run.

Extremes like massively restricting calories, or completely cutting out carbohydrates are unnecessary and can cause harm to the body.

Instead, they serve a balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. Packed with quality lean proteins, complex carbohydrates and moderate amounts of good fats.

Life Technology sessions, a lifetime of customised balanced nutritional recipes and activity programmes tailored 100%, are just some of the components of this programme that make it so successful.

This programme has been designed off the 'backbone' of 17 years of relentless testing and measuring – the results of the programme 'speck for themselves'! The team at 'Body and Soul Retreats' are extremely experienced at supporting, guiding, and leading you to the weight loss results you deserve.

This programme has been specifically designed to 'kick start' you into healthy living. It comprises of a combination of fresh organic balanced nutrition, and healthy activity, all within the purity of nature.

Another outcome of the programme is that you will sustain high daily energy levels that stay consistent throughout the day, without the energy highs and lows so common with living in modern society.

The three levels of guaranteed results that you will get from the 'Body and Soul Retreats' Fat Loss and Health & Fitness Programme:

  1. Tangible Physical Results: Immediate fat loss and toned muscle, and ongoing weight loss. Immediate 'high energy levels' that are sustained all day long. A more cardio-vascularly fit and stronger body
  2. Emotional Results: Immediate and ongoing Inner Confidence and high Self Worth
  3. Mind Results: You will think a lot more positively about yourself

  • My daughter and I needed something different. Something that would solve our weight problems. I was getting really worried about her health. Then I realised I was not a good role model!

    My habits were nothing to be proud of! So we decided to do the ‘Body & Soul Retreat’ together.

    It has changed our life forever. I highly recommend the ‘Body & Soul Retreats’ at the Catlins RiverRidge Retreat.
