You heard that right. The Beau-Rivage Palace in Lausanne says you can indulge in fromage et chocolat while dieting. A new weight-loss program available at the Cinq Mondes Spa strays from the traditional diet in focusing on what you eat when, rather than simply forbidding some menu items. Created in 1986 by French nutritionist Dr. Alain Delabos, Chrononutrition works by mapping out the particular enzymes and hormones the body produces at various times of the day, and then creating a corresponding diet plan of what should be eaten when. For example: since fruit is difficult to digest at breakfast, partake in hearty items (bring on the greasy cooked meats!) Lunch should provide sugar (fruit, chocolate) and vegetable fat (avocado, olives) while carbohydrate-rich food such as pasta should be avoided at dinner. To sum up: no foods are off limits!

The hotel's award-winning Cinq Mondes Spa—sprawling across 15,000 square feet—now offers individual Chrononutrition consultations with Patrick Leconte, a graduate of the University of Dijon (home to one of the  largest nutrition centers in Europe) and former student of one of Dr.  Delabos' close colleagues. Additionally, the hotel offers a variety of multiple-night packages with slimming treatments and coaching sessions.
