Included in your programme, which you can pause or cancel any time:
Semaglutide (Wegovy) is a prescription medication that suppresses appetite signals, helping you feel fuller for longer periods. Feeling full helps to support better portion control, and decreases overall calorie consumption. The medication is in the form of a pen, which is injected once a week. Orlistat (Alli) prevents around one-third of the fat you consume from being absorbed. It's a capsule, taken orally, on a daily basis.
Our clinicians will help you to manage potential side effects, make dosage adjustments, and answer any questions you might have. They’ll get to the root causes behind your weight, and will develop an action plan to help you maintain your weight once you’ve hit your goal. Chat to them through our app, or on the phone.
Maintaining weight loss is hard. Our coaches are nutritionists, exercise physiologists, and behaviour change experts. They’ll help you to build healthy habits that you can stick to, even after you reach your target goal. They'll keep you accountable and cheer you on, judgement free. Chat to them through our app.

"My self-confidence has really improved. I have fewer aches and pains as there’s less stress on my joints. I feel I can live a longer, happier life with less risk of cardiovascular issues." Rebecca, 33
"Before starting the programme, I was at high risk of type 2 diabetes. Now my risk has dropped dramatically. I discovered an old bag of clothes and couldn’t believe how many of them fit me where I would have had no chance before." Andy, 55
"The programme helped me refocus my mind. I can do something else other than eat. I don't mind leaving the house to go for very long walks and I interact with people I see even if it’s just a simple hello. The old version of me wouldn’t have bothered." Mike, 33

Weight loss is a challenge, no matter which way you look at it. But Kenny decided enough was enough and took the necessary steps to regain control of his health.
What made this experience great was the intelligence of the online questionnaire. It went beyond the mechanics of physical health and asked me how I felt. I felt supported immediately, just by the fact they had bothered to ask. Nice work and it is much appreciated.
