It’s more than willpower, it’s your biology

It starts with biology

Decades of research has shown that weight loss is more complex than “eat less, move more”. In fact, a range of biological, psychological, and environmental factors all play a major role.

Found fact

Up to 70% of your weight can be determined by your genes... this doesn’t mean you can’t change it. It just means you have to address what’s going on at the cellular level.

How is your biology affecting you?

your hormones

These guys do everything from telling your brain when you’re hungry to determining how your body stores fat.

And guess what? They can often be out of balance—making all your effort a constant uphill battle. But with the right medication, nutrition, and mindset, we can even the playing field.

your Genetics

Did you know that anywhere from 25–80% of your weight could be determined by your genetics?

That’s where science comes in. Found identifies the role your genetics play and then provides you with tools—like prescription medication—to address your weight at the cellular level.

your gut

We have trillions of tiny bacteria that live in our gut. There is good bacteria, like the kind that helps you better metabolize carbs, and there is bad bacteria, like the kind that increases sugar cravings.

The right diet, and some medications, can help the good kind flourish and limit the bad kind.
Safe & effective medication
Prescription medication can help address the biological factors that impact weight.

Found medical providers can prescribe a wide range of medications that work in distinct ways to address different biological issues. For example, some medications work on the reward center of your brain while others help stabilize blood sugar.

A Found medical provider will assess which medication is best for you and check in regularly to adjust as needed.

Your mental health and environment matter too

Your Heart & mind

Traditional diets downplay the impact that things like stress, emotions, and lack of sleep have on your weight. Our Care Team helps you identify the emotional triggers in your life and then works with you on solutions that help you feel positive and confident inside and out.

Your world

Your work hours. Your cooking abilities. Your zip code. These things matter.

Your Health Coach will work with you to develop a movement and nutrition plan that fits into your life and your schedule—not the other way around. And if something changes, they’ll help you switch things up so it always works for you.

your support system

We hear it all the time, and we’ve been there enough ourselves to know that accountability can make or break your ability to successfully care for your weight. Which is why our Community and our Care Team are with you every step of the way. So you never have to go it alone.

A comprehensive approach
