Did you know there are over 400 genetic factors that influence body weight? For some people, genes account for up to 80 percent of the predisposition to be overweight, according to Harvard Medical School. As dedicated as you are to your weight care routine, hidden blockers, like genetics, may be hindering your success.
Putting the work in and not seeing the changes you expect is disheartening and frustrating beyond all belief. At Found, we get that. And we want to help.
Weight care is not simple, and you deserve professional care. It is so complex that the American Medical Association (AMA) officially recognized obesity as a "chronic, progressive disease that requires medical treatment" in 2013, supporting the U.S. National Institutes of Health 1998 classification and the American Obesity Society’s 2008 classification.
Through research spurred by the AMA’s statement, scientists and healthcare providers now understand that the most effective approach to weight care is a combination of medical treatment and social support. At Found, we agree.
Our formula has two elements. First, we help guide how you manage your biology, nutrition, movement, sleep, emotional health and stress, and social support—all essential elements for sustainable weight loss. Second, Found matches each eligible member with a board-certified medical provider to select the most effective weight loss medication for their unique biology from our wide range of options.
This prescription element, in combination with the rest of the program, can be the game-changer for seeing weight loss success. Prescription medication “doubles to triples the odds of losing five to 10 percent body weight (or more),” according to the Obesity Medicine Association. This finding was mirrored by the Mayo Clinic which reported that “prescription weight-loss drugs approved for long-term use (more than 12 weeks) produce significant weight loss compared with placebos. The combination of weight-loss medication and lifestyle changes results in greater weight loss than lifestyle changes do alone.”
Through Found’s personalized, science-driven programs, the average member loses 10 percent of their body weight in the first six months.
