Join us for a unique Intermittent Fasting Program, which is designed specifically for health enthusiasts who prioritize a fit and balanced lifestyle.
We understand that our individual relationship with food reflects many aspects of our lives. From those late-night cravings to overindulgent meals.
That’s why we provide a gentle yet intensive guided experience that helps you discover a healthier and more healing connection with food. Whether you’re seeking solutions for weight loss, lack of energy, low libido, or simply desiring for a healthy break from your routines at home, our program is the perfect fit for you.
Located on a tropical island with cobalt blue waves and sweet sips of coconut water, our Intermittent Fasting Program combines fitness sessions, yoga practice, and healthy eating to help you achieve your goals. We align with the latest scientific knowledge on optimal ways to decrease weight, increase longevity, and promote vitality, making our program the perfect choice for your weight loss and rejuvenating holiday.
During your stay, we offer support as you embark on your intermittent fasting (IF) journey and your road to long-lasting wellness. Our program enables the body to restore itself over a 16-hour period, beginning at dinner and lasting until breakfast the following day. Our meals are intentionally prepared to encourage the body to fuel itself using fats instead of carbohydrates, just like our ancestors did. You’ll enjoy a selection of two solid meals, fresh juices, and fruit smoothies to nourish and support your body throughout your IF journey.
Join us and transform your relationship with food while rejuvenating your body and mind.
-ALTER D. LONGO AND MARK P. MATTSON, FASTING: MOLECULAR MECHANISMS AND CLINICAL APPLICATIONS.
Why does intermittent fasting work? You may have heard of or tried the restorative technique of fueling your body with fat instead of carbohydrates and sugar. To fully grasp the technique, imagine two states: the Fed and the Fasted. Your body can only ever be in one state at a time.
It only enters the Fasted state 12 hours after eating. In the Fed state, insulin levels are high which sends signals to your body to store excess calories in fat cells rather than burn them. In turn, your body uses glucose from your last meal as fuel for energy.
In the Fasted state, insulin levels are low, while glucagon and the growth hormone are elevated. This means your body starts burning the stored fat for energy, a healthy way to give your system the tools needed to restore itself. Intermittent fasting places your body in a state it wouldn’t normally reach during a regular eating schedule.
Orion’s Intermittent Fasting program is based on a 16/8 schedule of fasting and eating. Although women seem to benefit from a fasting ratio of 14/10, it is entirely up to you which ratio option you choose.
During your unrestricted window of food freedom, it is necessary to nourish your body with nutrient-dense healthy meals. With menu and food options, this is an easy feat; you’ll be spoiled for choice, and should you need any guidance, there will always be someone available to support you. Also in this program, you get the opportunity to indulge yourself with Melia’s Buffet Breakfast. Once a week you will have the option of joining a full 24-hour fasting day experience known as the, “Eat, Stop, Eat” -a 24-hour fast, once a week. This involves fasting from dinner one day, to dinner the next, this amounts to a 24-hour fast. Fasting is the first principle of medicine.
We recommend that you drink as much water as you can during the fast, which we provide you complimentary as part of your program. Being properly hydrated is nature’s first and foremost cure.
The Intermittent Fasting and Fitness Program covers many aspects of the health realm that boast the benefits of a brightened mental state, balanced emotions, increased metabolism, and muscle mass. Alongside these are vibrant arrays of vegan foods, doses of vitamin “sea,” and nature-bathing.
Upon booking, we will confirm with you the inclusions of your program. You can always augment your personal program with additional juices, elixirs, massages, and holistic healing treatments for an additional fee. Our expert staff is always available to advise you about the most compatible choices.
