    Our diploma thesis concentrates on the description of excessive weight and obesity, the methods used to estimate the level of nourishment, prevalence and factors leading to obesity. We have also listed the physiological and energy needs of our body. The most frequent ways of slimming down and dieting programs were also discussed, paying special attention to the Slim-Fit program practiced in the spa Šmarješke Toplice. In the empiric part of the thesis we analyzed the most common reasons why people return to join the Slim-Fit program. The research sample included 19 participants from Belgium and Netherlands who enrolled the slimming down program at least twice. We were interested in the main reasons why people enter the program for the first time, reasons for re-entering the program, as well as considering the main tips, given during the dieting program. The participants were also asked to list their ideas or suggest potential changes of the program. We obtained all necessary data for the research by means of a questionnaire. The results showed that the questioned participants took part in the program following their wish to keep stable weight and return to enjoy and stay in good condition during the program.
