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.
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?
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.
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.
The right diet, and some medications, can help the good kind flourish and limit the bad kind.
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.
