I went to We Care to get rid of my junk food eating, wine drinking, and extra 10 pounds. Habits I just kept returning to even after trying every diet. I used to be really disciplined but as I've gotten older I don't seem to be able to make myself do the right thing around food anymore. I had never fasted before and was a little scared at what that would feel like because I hate the feeling of being hungry. The good news is that the place is perfectly set up to make it easy to succeed. I was never really hungry which surprised me. I did have trouble sleeping the first few nights and booked some additional treatments to fill in downtime. The best part was the main kitchen area where you can just hang out and talk to people. I haven't laughed so much in years. You really get to know and have fun with people when you are all in it together so it was a great added pleasure to have fun while fasting. I wasn't expecting that. Result is I lost 12 pounds and have easily kept it off for 3 months so far. Even though I took a trip to Paris this summer, I was able to eat in a whole new way. Love this place. There's no place else like it. Even if you go to a regular spa that serves spa cuisine, you are always tempted to cheat. But, I found that fasting actually makes you not hungry! I will definetly be back.
