Weight Gain Holidays

Getting back to a healthy weight

Living a happier life with a healthy weight

Where many of us struggle to lose a few pounds, other struggle to gain them. Being underweight can be just as unhealthy as overweight and brings with it, its own set off health risks and issues. An important step to getting back to a healthy weight is to seek weight gain help from experts on how best to change a diet and exercise routine. A health retreat or weight gain holiday is a fantastic way to focus on your health as well as rebalance your body and mind.

Achieving Weight Gain on Holiday

Gaining weight doesn’t come easy to everyone and has various factors that are attributed to it. For some people it is a matter of malnutrition and poor eating habits, whereas others lose a lot of weight after taking certain medications, undergoing medical procedures, or metabolic disorders. On all fronts, it is recommended to achieve healthy weight gain results together with a physician or nutritionist.

Your Weight Gain Journey

Although most hotels and clinics are geared towards helping people lose weight, the majority of the weight management programmes can be adjusted to include healthy weight gain diets and exercise regimes. The weight gainer foods are rich in calories and nutrients, to make sure the body has everything it needs to return to a healthy state. Even if you are unable to get the increased weight results you hope for during your weight gain holiday, you will still leave with more vitality and weight gain tips, ready to move forward with your healthy weight gain plan at home.

Weight Gain Diets in Europe and Asia

Weight gain holidays are largely divided into two categories: a more medical and diet approach or a holistic approach. Your weight gain holiday starts by understanding which approaches are available to you and where you can find them.

Weight Gain Holidays in Europe

The weight management clinics and hotels in Europe tend to focus on diet, increasing calories while ensuring that you get a high balance of nutrients. The type of food or weight gain diet you receive depends largely on the individual approach, ranging from alkaline diets to Mediterranean and organic foods. The local nutrition and health experts will be able to help tailor the diet and give you weight gain tips, both for your holiday and to add to your healthy weight gain plan at home. The clinics, hotels, and spas use western medicine and local cuisine to assist you on your weight gain journey.

Weight Gain Holidays in Asia

In Asia, the versatile holistic healing approach of Ayurveda is a popular favorite. At the start of your weight gain holiday, you will consult with an Ayurveda doctor, discussing your issues and the goals you would like to achieve. After the examination and determination of your dosha, the Ayurveda doctor will prepare a highly personalised plan, including food suggestions that are specific to your dosha type. Although Ayurveda cuisine is supposed to be vegetarian, Ayurveda doctors often make rare exceptions to allow fish or even chicken, usually for the purpose of weight or muscle gain. If it would be beneficial to your weight gain diet, the doctor will prescribe the additional protein. This holiday is rounded off with treatments and yoga to harmonise the body and mind, allowing for both physical and spiritual healing.

Weight Gain Exercise

In some case, gaining weight is not about the lack of nutrition or calories, but rather about building muscle or finding a new exercise routine. Although this is still tied together with the diet and nutrition, the focus would be on finding a personal trainer and fitness expert. They will be able to guide you through weight gainer workouts for long-term results.

Together you would create a plan with them that you would start and train on your holiday to later continue at home. Many already know what kind of exercise they would like to focus on, however, for those starting out, a personal trainer could be a great asset in targeting any problem zones or weaker areas.

Choosing the Right Weight Gain Holiday

The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing a weight gain holiday is your goal as well as the reason you are underweight – whether it stems from a specific condition, medication, genetics, or poor eating habits. These holidays provide great supervision and expert advice, but is always good to check with your personal physician and see if they have suggestions or guidance that you should follow. It’s important to mention any specifics together with your booking, so that the hotel can make arrangements for you.

And if you’re still feeling a little lost deciding which health retreat you should choose, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We’d be happy to help you choose a weight gain holiday that’s right for you!

FAQ - Your Weight Gain Journey

How underweight am I?

If you calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI), you will have a good initial indication on if you are underweight and how severely. However, many more factors play a role on if you are truly underweight, such as body type, fat percentage, etc. Also, just because you are deemed underweight, it may not necessarily mean you are unhealthy. It is always best to change with your health care professional to get an accurate and personalised assessment.

Should I do fasting when underweight?

It is usually not recommended to fast when underweight. There may be some very rare exceptions in which a doctor would allow you to fast with strict medical supervision, but it is generally strongly advised not to fast while underweight. A great alternative to juice fasts is alkaline diets, which are rich in vitamins and minerals while still helping your body to detox.

What food should I eat to gain weight?

Nutritionists will generally recommend eating energy dense foods. This usually includes food such as full fat dairy, nuts, red meat and fish, avocado, eggs, and many more. If you are thinking of trying a weight gain diet for the first time, it’s recommended that you do so together with an expert, to make sure you’re not neglecting certain nutrients and also to know what are the best foods for you and your personal situation. Generally Ayurveda diets can be adapted to suit your individual needs without neglecting vital minerals or nutrients.
