What is a medical weight gain program?
While many have heard of medical weight loss programs for individuals wanting to lose weight and keep it off; however, there is also the opposite needed for individuals needing to gain weight. This is where medical weight gain programs come into perspective to help. Whether you are clinically underweight, or you are wanting to gain muscle, medical weight gain programs could benefit you.
Being considered underweight is defined as having a body mass index below 18.5, which is less than the accumulated body mass needed to sustain optimal health in people. However, being underweight does not necessarily mean that you have a health problem either.
Our medical weight gain program offers patients the ability to safely, and properly gain back weight in a slow but healthy manner to help you gain the weight in a proper manner but also to keep the healthy weight on.
What is included in a medical weight gain program?
Gaining weight can be as equally difficult as it is to lose weight for individuals. With the medical support of a clinic like Assure Wellness Group, gaining weight under healthy circumstances will help your chances of success. Our weight gain program will help you effectively gain weight with a personalized plan that will help you reach your body’s optimal function.
Not only will our patients be provided with individualized support and a tailored weight gain plan, but also have the opportunity to work with a medical provider at our weight gain clinic where you will learn important techniques and strategies which help you to avoid going back into an unhealthy state of weight loss and poor habits.
Our main goal at Assure Wellness Group is it to help our patients understand the best ways for them to manage their weight in order to support their long-term goals for health and wellness.
Who needs a medical weight gain program?
Medical weight gain programs are fantastic for individuals who are struggling to put on weight to keep them at their optimal healthy state, or for who are struggling to gain muscle properly and in a healthy manner. Other individuals like pregnant women who are underweight will also benefit greatly from medical weight gain programs.
If you or someone you know is struggling to gain weight and keep on a healthy amount of weight to keep them at their optimal body status, contact Assure Wellness Group today, we are more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have in regards to our medical weight gain program as well as how it may benefit you.
What are the benefits of a medical weight gain program?
As is the same with medical weight loss programs, weight gain programs offer many benefits, they include:
- Customized doctor assessment and meal plan
A medically supervised program will be available once we evaluate your current physical condition. The foods that will be included and the activity plan will be set up for your level and goals.
- Instructions suited to your individual needs
Our doctors will provide instructional plans for exercise to fit with your eating plan to keep you active and healthy while gaining weight.
- Complete medical workup
Our doctors will screen you for any existing conditions that you may not know about, then our doctors will offer a meal plan and anything else tailored to your goals.
- Forming healthy new habits
The support and instruction you will receive during your medical weight gain program from knowledgeable health professionals will help you to form new healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
- Health results
The benefits you will get from medically supervised programs to help you gain the weight back in a healthy manner are something you can see and feel. You may not notice your physical weight gain immediately, but within even a few short weeks, you should begin to see and feel healthier and have more energy to do the things you want to do.
