Program

Vitalisé Portugal prefers to work with small groups (maximum 12 guests), so you can count on a lot of personal attention and tailor-made advice.

During a personal intake interview, you will discuss your general health, weight, blood pressure, and fat percentage together.

After the detox, there will be another conversation where you will evaluate your personal results.

To support and encourage guests to adopt an improved lifestyle, you will receive a booklet with tips and recipes on departure. A healthier life starts at Vitalisé and continues at home!

The following sports lessons are on the program daily:

  • Walks in the beautiful surroundings
  • Relaxercise or yoga

The following sports lessons are on the program every other day:

  • Morning stretch
  • Water aerobics or aqua fitness or aqua jogging

In the warm summer months, Vitalisé adjusts the program so that the activities take place at the less hot times of the day.

Included excursions

An excursion to Lagos, a trip to Silves, or a trip to the beach is included in the price.

Lagos

Only a 30-minute drive to the old town of Lagos. Lagos is one of the older towns in the Algarve. The city was under Moorish rule for centuries and was then called Zawaia.

In the 13th century, the city was reconquered by the Portuguese king Alfons II of Portugal and the city slowly came to prosper. The city was one of the first in Europe to have a covered slave market and Lagos became the center for exploration in Portugal.

In the city, you will find many old churches, the old city walls, and beautiful old patrician houses.

Silves

In the rolling hinterland, less than 20 kilometers from Casa Conmigo, lies the former capital of the Algarve.

Silves is best known for the beautiful red castle built on a hill. The medieval town was the center of the Arab occupation of this area about a thousand years ago.

Beach

The beach is only a 10-minute drive from Casa Conmigo. Almost every day, Vitalisé Portugal brings their guests to the cliffs and the beach to do beautiful walks. Also once a week, they have a free transfer to the beach in the afternoon for sunbathing and swimming.

Location

Vitalisé Health Resort is located in the Algarve in the village of Portimao, 60 kilometers from Faro. The beautiful beach is within 15 minutes driving distance. The villa is situated in a quiet, residential area. The location is ideal for beautiful walks in nature and along the beach. The nearest airport is Faro, a 60-minute drive from Casa Conmigo.

Food

Juice fasting

If you opt for the juice fast, you will receive fresh fruit and vegetable juices and a vegetable soup three times a day at Vitalisé Portugal.

These juices contain all the vitamins and minerals the body needs to function properly. Since your body does not need to regulate digestion during a fast, you have more energy left for other things.

Mild fasting

Mild fasting is a milder form of detox in which they serve with different light meals. You will receive a healthy breakfast, a light lunch, a four-hour juice, and a soup of fresh vegetables in the evening. The nutritional program has been carefully put together by their naturopath. Alkaline foods such as nuts, seeds, fruits, or vegetables form the basis.

You can also choose to do a combination of juice and mild fast. For example, 3 days of juice fasting followed by 4 days of mild fasting.

You do not have to decide this when booking, they can advise you on the spot. You can also switch to the other program at any time during the course.

The principles

Vitalisé programs, based on their many years of experience (more than 15 years!), are refined and adjusted every day to be even more efficient. Guests achieve the best results the fastest with these programs! They all rely on a few important principles:

Vegan

All programs are vegan. Vitalisé pays attention to the pH value of food because they want to deacidify the body. Since animal products are acidifying, they do not use them during the detox.

Low carbohydrate

When you eat carbohydrates, your blood sugar (glucose) rises. When you eat too many carbohydrates, your cells are full of glucose and glucose can remain in your blood. Glucose in the blood clogs the veins and causes inflammation.

Almost all carbohydrates are stored as fat. Insulin is the hormone that carries glucose to fat cells. When you eat too many carbohydrates, the insulin in your blood rises. In high doses, insulin is toxic and causes cell damage, cancer and atherosclerosis, nerve damage, and limb pain.

In addition, a consistently high level of insulin causes the cells to stop responding to insulin. This is called insulin resistance and can lead to type 2 diabetes and heart disease, Alzheimer’s, etc.

Insulin resistance leads the body to believe that there is not enough glucose stored in the cells and sends the signal to use muscle mass to make glucose. Result? You lose muscle mass and gain weight.

Instead of feeling energized after eating, you feel tired and feel need more carbohydrates. Because you now also have fewer muscles, moving becomes hard, and you end up in a vicious circle. A detox is an ideal way to switch your body from carbohydrate burning to fat burning (ketosis).

Low-acid foods

To give the body a chance to get rid of accumulated toxins. With low acidity, they think of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. Acidic food includes meat, additives, and trans fats. Toxins cannot be removed immediately and are stored in the fat cell. This ensures that your body cannot properly use this fat cell for energy supply.

You will then continue to work on carbohydrate burning, and not on fat burning. That is why it is important, by eating only pure, unprocessed food, to give the body a chance to detoxify and make the fat cells available again.

Vegan protein

Animal products are acidifying, and in addition, scientific research has shown that animal protein (methionine) accelerates aging! But you need proteins for many functions in the body.

Also during the fast, protein will ensure that your body does not break down muscle mass, but uses fat mass. That’s why Vitalisé uses vegan protein, such as hemp seed and chia seed during detox.

Healthy fats

In addition to olive oil, Vitalisé also uses coconut oil and MCT oil during the program because they can withstand higher temperatures, has an anti-inflammatory effect, are used quickly by the body, and are not stored in the fat cells.

MCT oil is immediately converted into ketones, which immediately provide your body with energy. In this way, your body also enters fat burning (ketosis) faster.

Low in calories

Fasting is eating less, but why? Calorie restriction activates autophagy, a process by which the body breaks down and recycles old cells. It also lowers the production of IGF-1.

A high IGF-1 is associated with faster aging and an increased risk of cancer. It is an old and logical system: through fasting, your body will release less energy for growth and sex and it will use the energy that is left for repair so that you are fit and strong again to be able to hunt again after the scarcity.
