To secure spots at Wellspring Family Camp in Pinehurst, NC, the mother put $7,900 dollars on a credit card.
I feel sorry for that mother's $7,900 dollars because what the duo did to lose weight was, basically, exercise and track food by measuring everything in addition to writing down what they ate in a journal. Participants also had organized aerobics classes, early morning walks and were provided with a pedometer to encourage getting in 10,000 steps a day.
I liked the "Uncontrolled Bar," a food bar with fruits, soups and vegetables among other things. The staff reinforced an idea that Dr. Aronne often repeated in The Skinny:
You can have an unlimited amount of vegetables.Wellspring's uncontrolled bar is not limited to vegetables though.
On a similar note, check out New York's ad campaign. If you're squeamish, don't click.
