altI've always been the type to scoff at people who go on retreat and come back claiming that two weeks of starvation and regimented exercise has changed their lives. Which is why my trip to Body & Soul Adventures in Paraty, Brazil left me in a difficult position - I definitely did not want to become that person, but, by the end of the trip, the facts were right in front of my face, something hadchanged.



altWho hasn't heard the horror stories about the Ashram? The rigorous hikes..., the unbearable lack of food. Breakfast options were supposedly orange juice or an orange slice. Dinner, an array of lettuce leaves. Herbal tea counted as nourishment...But I had also heard the victory tales. Eleven pounds in one week! Oprah christened Heartbreak Hill! Thighs that no longer touch! Julia, Courtney, and Jennifer! Most important, a rock-hard butt...the notorious Ashram was trekking to Brazil...

But, still focused on the traditional concept of a "spa," I assi,ed O wpi;d be spending at least part of my day lazing around in a plush robe with a cup of tea and a book. When the staff welcomed me by checking my blood pressure, I realized that my week was going to be a bit more strenuous that I had anticipated.


Sandwiched between surf and rain forest on an island off Brazil's Costa Verde, Body Soul Adventures hosts 14 guests at a time for its 6-day fitness/detox programs. Getting in shape is the top priority. Expect days packed with outdoor action, from jungle trekking to sea kayaking to surfing, along with minimum calorie meals.

Actresses and fashionistas flock to this Ilha Grande, Brazil, hideout (a spin-off of California's Ashram, a Julia Roberts fave). Sure, sometimes an entire meal consists of celery and an egg, but between the kayaking, hiking and your, who's thinking about food?
