The Skinny on Weight-Loss Vacations

Hilton Head Health

Resting on the shores of Hilton Head Island in South Carolina, the Hilton Head Health resort has been helping people get in shape for 35 years and has placed in the Top 10 on SpaFinder's readers' choice list of Best Weight Loss Spas for the past four years. During the week-long H3 Healthy Lifestyle Program, participants take part in several hours of fitness activities each day, as well as nutrition seminars and cooking classes. Three meals a day (not exceeding 1,400 calories) as well as 100-calorie snacks known as "Metabo Meals" keep guests full without allowing them to over-indulge. Also part of the program are SELF (Stress management, Empowerment, Longevity, Fulfillment) discussions during which participants can share their short- and long-term health goals. According to Hilton Head Health's marketing manager, Kelly Hillyer, guests lose between seven and 14 pounds on average while at Hilton Head Health.
