Sugar Detox Ketogenic Weight Loss Retreat

Lose weight, improve your fitness, deeply relax, and reconnect with nature.

Retreat from your busy urban lifestyle, surround yourself with jungle and ocean, and retrain your body to use fat as your main fuel source.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

 

Imagine an all-inclusive health and wellness retreat that not only takes care of your every need but also ensures you lose weight,  improve your fitness, de-stress, and reconnect with nature. During Hacienda del Sol’s weight loss retreat in Costa Rica it’s easy to reverse the effects of aging and feel vitality again. You’re going to relax fully and deeply, reduce your stress, learn to use fat as your main fuel source, and overcome a weight loss plateau.

Spend 1, 2 or 3 weeks at our beautiful Costa Rican Jungle Retreat Centre and receive the individualized attention you need to accomplish your health goals. Nestled in the pristine Guanacaste Jungle of Costa Rica, Hacienda del Sol allows you to retreat from your busy urban lifestyle and truly reconnect with yourself and with nature. Our all-inclusive program, which runs all year around and can be joined any day of the week, hosts a maximum of 12 guests, and our experienced, caring staff ensure you’ll be well taken care of your entire stay. While here, you’ll have nothing to worry about except enjoying your retreat.

WHAT OUR WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM ACCOMPLISHES:

 

  • Escape from the energy roller coaster, fat-storing, inflammatory effects of today’s grain-based, high-carbohydrate modern diet, and adopt an eating strategy that will reprogram your genes to prefer fat for fuel.
  • Slow life down, taking time for play, sunlight and fresh air, and adequate sleep.
  • Efficiently detox from sugar, as well as reduced excess body fat, with natural, easy-to-maintain lifestyle and diet changes.
  • Participate in daily activities that are rich in what Katie Bowman calls “nutritious movement” (movement that nourishes your freedom to move) and give you a deeper connection with your body and your relationship to nature.
  • Connect with the healing benefits of being immersed in nature and recalibrate your natural circadian rhythms.

HOW OUR PROGRAM ACCOMPLISHES ITS AMAZING RESULTS

 

Philosophy: Our Weight Loss Program is patterned after the diet, exercise, and lifestyle behaviours of our ancestors – The Primal Lifestyle

Nutrition: Guests participating in Hacienda del Sol’s Weight Loss Retreat have the choice to follow a Primal Ketogenic diet, or simple Primal Diet. The main difference between them comes down to the level of carb restriction.  Both diets are based on nutrient dense, locally sourced, whole foods. The difference is Primal Ketogenic has a severe carb restriction (25 net carbs, so no fruit allowed), whereas the simple Primal does not (50-150 carbs allowed, so certain fruits are ok). Weight loss tends to be deeper on a Ketogenic diet, as the carb restriction pushes your body to use fat from day one, yet this can be stressful at first. Primal, with its more generous carb allowance, is a gentler approach with a lot less stress hormone dump. A simple Primal diet is ideal for people that don’t want to jump straight into the deep water and make a softer metabolic shift.

Movement: Hacienda del Sol’s Weight Loss Retreat is paired up with many “nutritious movement” activities including hiking, primal fitness, primal yoga, reflect and recharge classes, and a weekly offsite Costa Rican adventure (Stand up paddle boarding).

MORE ABOUT HACIENDA DEL SOL’S MOVEMENT ACTIVITIES

 

Primal Yoga moves dynamically between tension and releasing, the Yang and the Yin. Focus is on movement. 90 blissful minutes of dipping in and out into flow state.

Primal fitness is a form of high intensity training, rich in ranges of motion. It offers an antidote for the no pain, no gain mentality that inevitably leads to injury. It consists of progressive body movement exercises that take you to your limit while still managing to strengthen your body-mind connection.

Our reflect and recharge classes are a collection of western and eastern Yin practices focused on activating the parasympathetic nervous system in unique ways, while teaching you the essential skill of processing the stress that has accumulated throughout the day, therefore avoiding the eventual condition of chronic stress.

Our outdoor adventures are stand up paddle boarding, jungle and beach hikes.

  • The newly renovated bungalows are ready 🤩🥳 we can’t wait to share them with you! More photos to come 😍
  • Blissful moments 💫 Buddha hall (@haciendadelsolcr yoga hall) has such a special, magical, and healing energy. Surrounded by the jungle, listening to the birds, feeling the warm tropical breeze on your skin, you can just be and rest in the moment. Taking time for yourself to “just be” is so precious. 🥰
  • Tropical fruit and papaya stuffed chia seed bowl 💫 we’re already obsessed with coconut chia seed pudding and are considering adding a new chia bowl to our menu!! All in favour of added this to our menu comment below with a YES PLEASE!🙌🏼😍
  • Vitamin Sea 🌊  The roar of crashing waves, the fresh ocean air and 
the humbling sight of 
an endless blue horizon – there’s no denying the restorative effects of the ocean.

In fact, the sea is steeped in healing history with its extensive salt water benefits. Victorian doctors prescribed seaside trips, while the ancient Greeks soaked in the mineral-rich water. 
A recent study also found that your proximity to the coast correlates to your health. Ready to dive in?

  • One of the things we struggle with with the wellness industry, is that it calls us to be constantly seeking wellness outside ourselves. Don’t get us wrong, there are so many amazing experts, resources, and products out there, being lead by amazing people with great intentions. Still, this is our friendly reminder to start your wellness journey by going inward first. Check in with your body, your mind, your breath. How do you feel? What do you need? What makes sense for you? Then search out what you’re in need of. Getting lost in the sea of wellness products, info, and what everyone else is doing can be a slippery slope, because it doesn’t seem like it’s inherently wrong. It’s *healthy* right? 
But we believe the true path to wellness comes from connecting within, and doing what’s right for you, not what everyone else says!
At HDS, we help you make your own decisions about what works for you, and teach how to work with your own unique body, not against.
We’ve also been exploring new (and fun ways) to deliver a more personalized approach to wellness experiences, because there really is no one size fits all in wellness. So stay tuned, because some fun things are happening this fall 😘
