In recent years methods have become popular for weight loss drastic at all costs, such as camps, hotels and accommodation that aims to lower many kilos in a short period of time. These methods have no medical backing and are unsustainable in the long term and jeopardize the health of its participants.

This is just one of the warnings thrown by the European Medical experts from the Institute of Obesity (IMEO) concerned about this new trend. This type of restrictive diets do not have long-term effects as they have known rebound, recoup their losses and gain more kilos.

As explained Europa Press the naturopath nutrition specialist European Medical Institute of Obesity, Dr. Rubén Bravo, “these camps has resulted in a rebound effect. Because habits are not changed when changing eating anxiety and stress, causing a large extent of overweight. These camps aim to bring the body to a strong stress to lose weight too quickly which causes, when we return to daily routines, we tend to regain weight and increase by 50 percent. ”

This type of weight loss therapies have a very short time established in Spain, but countries like the U.S. and China, created decades ago.

Bravo explains, “The camps have programs between 6 and 9 weeks. They all planned, from a very restricted diet, to a hard training and exercise program and sometimes, as in Spain, the camp is taught by the military. ”

“People who undergo this type of thinning pay a lot of money – between 4,000 and 6,000 euros depending on the program-to make them grind them up early and restrict their diet,” adds the expert.


On the one hand there is a risk because they are people who are not accustomed to playing sports, and are subject to an exercise of a high athletic level. They also tend to cardiovascular disease or diabetes, thus subjected to a strong exercise is dangerous for your health.

Instead, experts say it is necessary to institute start exercising slowly for the body to adapt. In the case of obese people need to control their heart rate, increases do not occur very high above 180 beats, and that poses a risk to your health.

The body of an adult needs to eat up a minimum amount of calories varies between 1,200 and 1,400 and, for the sake of his health, should not fall under these limits. If, on the one hand, it provides a high caloric expenditure based on an intense exercise that borders the 2,000 calories and, on the other hand, eating fewer than 1,000 calories a day with a restrictive diet, go into a large deficit can slow metabolism, says Bravo.

They should also be noted that if the person has an overweight of over 20 kilos and has over 55 years increases the risk to their health, being able to cause injury and cardiovascular disease, hypoglycemia, lowered blood pressure, dizziness, trauma an eating disorder and especially a certain rebound.

Data on these camps in Spain are very rare but if taken as a reference made in North America, usually divided by gender and age and there are specialized camps for teenagers.

All the experts emphasize the negative health consequences that have this kind of camps. Bravo recalls that “the secret of maintaining physical fitness is a balanced diet based on some simple guidelines, like avoiding the excesses and hyper caloric meals and distribute food according to the biorhythm of the body: take the carbohydrates in the breakfast, mid morning fruit and let the vegetables and proteins for food, snack and dinner. ”
