Shedding weight should normally be a steady process. If you drop too much fat in too short a time, you’ll (a) risk damaging your health and (b) probably put most of it back on again.Fitness boot camps say they can get you leaner and fitter in a week and keep you that way in the long term. So how do they do it?
New You Boot Camp,
After spending a week at New You in Devon, I walked away 5kg lighter – but I certainly didn’t feel weaker than when I’d gone in. For seven days, I was up at 5.30am for a gruelling cardio session, followed by a full day of military-style circuits, tug of war on the beach, log runs, lorry pushing and mountain biking. Every day I was given six small meals consisting of fresh, tasty ingredients to keep my energy levels up.*
