Movara plant-based vs. nutrient-dense menu study. Which diet yields more health benefits?

Jul 10, 2018 | 0 comments

Do you think you would get healthier and feel better if you ate less meat and dairy? Have you ever wondered if you could switch to a fully plant-based diet? And if you did, how you might measure the change in your body?

At Movara, we strive to give our guests a variety of nutrition and fitness tools and opportunities to achieve their health goals. For this reason, we have begun conducting a small guest study that will compare the health benefits and results of an all plant-based diet vs. our typical nutrient-dense Movara menu. Our current menu accommodates a variety of food preferences – such as Vegetarian (with limited dairy), Vegan (Plant-based) and Gluten-free – but like many of you, we wonder if your results at Movara would be different if you opted for our fully plant-based menu. You can choose our plant-based menu for any of your meals during your stay with us but if you’re interested in an extended stay – and don’t mind which menu you follow – why not participate in the new study?

To qualify for this study, you would need to stay with us for minimum of 3 consecutive weeks and commit to full program participation. We’ll randomly assign participants to one of two* groups:

  • GROUP A will be “Plant Based.” Guests in this group will follow an all plant-based diet – free of meat and all other animal by-products – while still being complete with delicious nutrient-dense foods and essential proteins.
  • GROUP B will enjoy the “Current Movara Menu.” This group will follow our current diet consisting of those same nutrient-dense foods while still incorporating meat and dairy.

Both groups will follow the same daily schedule and fitness routine as well as undergo the same initial and end-of-stay assessment including: An InBody test (full body composition analysis); Weigh Ins; Body Measurements; and Full Blood Panels (a $350 value at no additional cost)

We are offering a special rate for guests who participate in the study which includes a 3-week all-inclusive resort stay with a private room [$5985 (Regularly $7485)] and a $300 resort credit.

Interested? Study space is limited so call 1-888-870-2639 or email our Reservations team for shared room rates and availability.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

*All guests can opt into the Vegan/plant-based menu and book to undergo the full blood panel (at their cost) but their results will be assigned to a third study group.
