As we dive into Winter and start to enjoy the great outdoors again, waistlines are back on the menu. So now is as good a time as any to check out Dubai's best spots to drop a few pounds if you've inadvertently found yourself on the wrong side of curvy.

First up, Dubai Herbal and Treatment Centre. Book an appointment with their fabulous nutritionist, Lily, who also happens to be a qualified Colonic Hydrotherapist. She can sort out your diet while starting the detox process with a few cleansing sessions of colonic irrigation to set you on the right track before the festive season is in full flow. dubaihtc.com

If a spa break's more what you're looking for, why not try a detox escape for two out at Al Hamra Village in RAK, courtesy of Powwer. Expect a weekend of exercise and cleansing with professional support to help you reach your weight loss goals, if you're low on will power. alhamravillage.com

Finally, if you're in need of some last minute help before a big occasion but you're too busy for a spa trip, one of the city's meal delivery plans could be the answer. Dubai's Detox Delight can deliver a range of vegan meals and juices straight to your desk around Dhs500 per day. detox-delight.ae
