I was on a school just like that, and it changed completely my life. It was the best thing that ever could happen to me.

That's not true a year and a half ago I was three inches shorter and 45 pounds heavier. Therefore I don't fit either of your quailitys of thin people (though I am thin) I did eat, and I haven't always been thin. For me I went to a summer camp for two weeks at camp I wasn't snacking constantly, but just having the regular three meals a day so when my mom and aunt picked me up (my little cousin also went to camp) they were like "Oh my gosh, you look so good!" I had lost like 15 pounds. I loved seeing that result so I just stuck with eating three meals a day, and like an afterschool snack. Now I am 16 years old, 5 feet 3.25 inches, and 110 pounds! Yeah!!!!

Hi. I have never been to a "fat" camp, but my best friend did. She went to one in NY for a summer. She came back and had lost 20 pounds, but within a few months she gained it all back. When you are at a camp you are on a strict regiment of food and exercise, and if you come home and don't keep up the habits you will gain it all. She only ate fruits and veggies, one small piece of meat a day, and a small piece of bread, and no snacks. She didn't like it very much, because they didn't allow any contact with her family for the first few weeks. Why they did that I don't know. I guess if you can keep up the exercise and diet that you are on at the camp it is a good way to start to lose weight. Otherwise, because the diet and exercise are so strick, you might not be able to continue the same way, you will probably just gain it back. I hope that kind of helped. Good luck!
