Weight loss is hard! Here are 8 things to make it easier

Take the quiz

The minute your feet touch the floor in the morning, the to-do list starts. To say you hit the ground running is the understatement of the year. Between chauffeuring the kiddos, working a full-time job—and being the family chef, launderer, scheduler, dog-walker, therapist, you name it—it’s no wonder the days get away from you. You can barely find the time to take out the trash, let alone find time for yourself.

You want to prioritize your health, but with a jam-packed schedule, it can feel impossible. We’re here to tell you—you don’t have to do it alone.  Besides, that do-it-yourself approach isn’t always helpful anyways. In one study, those who received support through a weight-management program, including weekly check-ins and access to an app that featured articles on weight care and behavior change as well as community interaction, lost an average of more than eight pounds at the three-month mark, versus DIYers, who managed their own weight care and averaged a four-pound weight loss. 

What is Found and how can it help me with weight loss?

The clinicians and coaches at Found know that taking control of your health isn’t easy, especially when you’re looking for real, sustainable results. Found is an individualized, online weight care program where members have access to prescription medication (for those who qualify), a team of health coaches, an app that features guided programming to encourage behavior change, and a supportive community. Found also offers health articles written by obesity medicine specialists, behavioral health experts, and registered dietitians.  

8 ways Found can help make weight care feel less like a chore 

Honestly, this list could be way longer, but if you’re reading this, you’re likely one of the busy ones—so we’ll spare you. 

1. It’s 100% online

Waiting months for an opening at the doctor, not to mention finding appointment times that work with your schedule, can be a real drag. With Found’s online weight care program, you can remove trips to the doctor’s office from the equation.

Medical, nutrition, and movement guidance are right at your fingertips, all from the comfort of your home. 

2. We’re obesity medicine experts

Having trouble finding the support you need when it comes to weight care? 

At Found, we know that weight is more complex than just calories in, calories out. Biology—hormones, genes, metabolic factors—can determine as much as 70 percent of your weight. At Found, you’ll work one-on-one with a physician trained in obesity medicine to determine if medication is right for you. 

3. We have supportive Health Coaches 

During your first four weeks as a Found member, you’ll have access to a Found Coach. Your health coach is an expert in behavior change—and will help you set goals and develop the necessary action plans to meet them. 

One study on the effectiveness of working with a health coach for weight loss found that more than half of those who worked with a professional coach lost 10 percent of their body weight after six months.

4. You’ll gain tools for lifelong health 

Our main goal at Found is to go beyond the scale to help you feel your best physically, mentally, and emotionally. We won’t just “quick fix” it for you. Instead, we’ll actually teach you how to take action and achieve your goals. That way, these changes become permanent habits, and you won’t need to waste your time on another diet again.

We do this with the Found app, which integrates seamlessly with Google Fit and Apple Health. The app is home to a self-paced, guided program designed to help you adopt the necessary habits for successful weight loss and maintenance—and a hub to track routines and monitor your progress with your healthier habits. 

5. It’s science-backed

We won’t just ask you to take our word for it. At Found, you can trust that the education, guidance, and medication you receive are backed by science. 

The member-only app features a guided program created by our obesity and behavioral health specialists, designed to help you develop healthier habits. You’ll also gain exclusive access to premium articles that cover health topics known to support weight care. Knowing that information is a few clicks away, you can say goodbye to endless (and time-consuming) Google searches. 

6. You’ll be part of an active community

Surrounding yourself with people who are in similar situations can be helpful during the times you encounter roadblocks. And it can also help when you need a big celebratory pat on the back. 

Whether they're swapping recipes, tips, or words of encouragement, the community within the Found app allows you to connect and learn with and from others.

7. It’s affordable 

Found believes that everyone should have access to high-quality weight care because money shouldn’t be a barrier to living a healthier life. Generic medications offered at Found and filled through a Found preferred pharmacy are included when you invest in the program. However, Found will work with you and your insurance (if needed) to prescribe a brand-name or GLP-1 medication that’s right for you—medically and cost-wise. Because at Found, we believe that the right medication is one you can afford. 

8. It works 

With its individualized approach, Found has helped members from all walks of life not only lose weight but keep it off, giving them newfound confidence, more energy to play with their kids again, and even helping some members improve other health conditions. 

We know your time is precious, and we can confidently say your wasted days of dieting are over. Join the nearly 200K (and counting!) other members to get a personalized program designed to fit your needs and help you achieve sustainable weight loss. We’re all in this together!
