Remember, healthy weight gain takes time, so be patient with the process. We recommend increasing your weight slowly and with a healthy diet. Aim for plenty of plant diversity, embrace the carbs and don’t fear the fats! It’s always a good idea to consult with your Healthcare Provider or a Nutritionist/Dietitian who can provide personalised guidance based on your specific needs and goals.
