Please see below more information on the nutrition as well as photos of food plus a couple of the camp.
Also, it's a good idea to look at our social media feeds on instagram and facebook which are updated almost daily with real footage from ongoing camps:
Our Nutritional Approach:
Diet is adjusted to the campers and their goals. Calorie count varies daily according to activity load.
3 main meals are served with optional snacks of fruit and vegetable left out for campers.
One thing that’s important is that you will not go hungry. In fact the tendency is for clients to not finish their meals the longer they are at camp.
The goal is to get you into the mindset of eat to live not live to eat that you can take home and follow.
Meals are diverse with almost no repetition.
On average between 1500-1800 calories daily
* Low carb, high protein. Make macros work but not be governed by them. It’s not Atkins or keto, it’s a diet that makes carbs your friend and not your enemy.
* We don’t believe in calorie counting. We believe that by making the right food choices you will naturally eat what’s necessary to fuel your day.
Calorie density versus restriction:
Simply put, calorie density is the number of calories in a given volume of food. Certain foods have more calories packed into them – pound for pound – than others. That means each food has its own caloric density. Fresh tomatoes, for example, have just 90 calories per pound. Bagels are packed with more than 1,200 calories per pound. With each bite of bagel, you’re taking in 13 times as many calories as each bite of tomato. Another easy way to think about calorie density is the “concentration” of calories in a food. Bagels are more “concentrated” in calories than tomatoes.
We choose foods that are LOW in calorie density. Usually, low-calorie-dense foods are high in WATER and FIBER. These foods are very filling, but don’t ratchet up a bunch of waistline-busting calories. Examples include vegetables, fruits, cooked whole grains, oatmeal, cooked beans and legumes, nonfat dairy and soy products, and lean animal proteins.
* Protein high
* Carb timing is important and tied into your exercise time.
* We fuel you to exercise optimally but still run a calorie deficit (mainly through exercise) to get rapid but sustainable weight loss
* Whole food, organic, non processed.
* Use our own olive oil, fruits and nuts grown in our own orchards.
* Cater to most dietary requirements but we do expect clients to come with an open mind to trying new things.
* All natural
* Meals are normal size and you will not feel hungry. We do not believe that losing weight should come through severe calorie restriction.
Whilst in camp its optimized to gain the maximum benefits but is a retainable, achievable long term diet plan that many of our campers follow on.
A lot of spices, oils, legumes, herbs and a very wide variety of fruits and vegetables to provide a full vitamin and mineral profile.
The majority of meals will contain a lean Fish/animal/vegetable/ source of protein.
Last meal is at 5 o’clock.We effectively run a 13-11 intermittent fasting diet
