What length of program do you recommend?

Our standard response to this question is that research suggests the average person takes approximately 4 weeks (21 to 28 days) to change habits, therefore those who are about best results and making long term change should consider this when making their decision.

We are of course happy to accept guests for anywhere between 1 to 8 weeks as they choose and are proud that we have had tremendous success acros all program durations in helping guests lose significant amounts of weight and achieve significant health improvements. Packages can be tailored to suit individual needs.
