Doctor Consultation
The doctor learned that Rohit lives a moderately active life and has unhealthy eating habits which are not at all suggested for a healthy body. Rohit usually skipped meals and had a small appetite. He was naturally thin due to which he faced multiple issues in gaining muscle mass. Therefore, the doctor curated a treatment plan as per his current situation and advised the patient to make a few alterations in his lifestyle, diet and daily habits like taking a well-balanced diet including all nutrients, proteins and vitamins. Workout for an hour and drinking 8-9 glasses of water every day were advised by his personal wellness coach assigned by Nirvasa to improve his low stamina and energy issues.
Treatment Journey
  • The doctor assessed Rohit’s case and came to the conclusion that he possesses a naturally thin and lean body which is difficult to gain muscle mass.
  • Rohit got suggested a personalised weight management treatment plan of six months which included dietary and lifestyle adjustments, along with effective weight gain supplements and workout regimen.
  • In the first two months, Rohit was just following the diet and workout given by the doctor and he noticed a slight improvement in his body weight. He gained weight of about 4kg.
  • After four months, Rohit reported fantastic improvements in his body weight and even an increase in food portions and appetite. The wellness coach made some modifications to his diet and workout regimen after one of Rohit’s regular follow-ups.
  • By the end of the treatment i.e. six months, Rohit’s skin quality, hair quality and body weight everything drastically transformed. He could sense a significant enhancement in his hair quality and there were no scalp issues, the skin became smoother and shinier due to a well-balanced diet and his body increased to about 65kg.

There is nothing more satisfying than looking at your better, fitter self. I wasn’t able to achieve this on my own - Thanks to Nirvasa who became my weight gain companion and held my hand on every step. I realized the importance of a well-balanced diet, consistent calorie surplus, and appropriate exercise for healthy weight gain. Throughout this weight gain journey, I have discovered that proper nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle modifications can help overcome challenges associated with being underweight.
