In today's world, people probably know more about their own bodies than at any other time in history. Even before the coronavirus pandemic caused a sense of hyper awareness, advances in medicine and technologylike wearable devices and appscould alert you about your heart rate, glucose levels, and blood oxygen saturation. Doctors and scientists were already delving deeper, down to individual genetic codes to produce personalized approaches for just about everything.

So, what if, in the future, someone could take this biological approach and apply it to solving one of the longest standing and most frustrating problems that many have with their bodiesweight?

Well, that future is now. And that someone is Calibrate.

While consumers spend $290 billion on weight-loss goods and services every year, healthcare plans burn through $344 billion annually on weight loss treatments. Thats because weight affects more than just appearance; it is also associated with many of the leading causes of death in the U.S., including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, some types of cancer, and throughout the pandemic, it has significantly increased the risk for COVID-related illness and death.

If you've struggled with weight loss, you may have experienced feelings of failure. Like so many, you may have felt as though it was your fault. If a diet didn't produce the desired results, its because you lacked the willpower to make it happen. But research shows that 95% of diets failand science has exposed the flaw in that thinking.

It is not a matter of eating less and exercising more, says Dr. Kim Boyd, Calibrates Chief Medical Officer. People have been trying that for many, many years, and yet the scale and the health consequences keep going in the wrong direction. The problem lies with biology, and that is how Calibrate is fundamentally different from some of the other options out there.

Set Point: We All Have One, But What Exactly Is It?

Calibrate is a program that uses a scientific approach to help the 9 out of 10 American adults who are in poor metabolic health. Traditional diets are one-size-fits-all, but individual metabolic systems are uniquely programmed to maintain the weight youre currently at, regardless of whether it is healthy for you. This is called your set point and Calibrate enables you to lower it through a combination of doctor-prescribed medication, tracking, and accountability coaching. The result is a way to reset your metabolic system and sustain weight loss.

There are no shortcuts to metabolic health, says Ellen Vora, MD and Calibrates Sleep and Emotional Health Expert. But it also doesnt have to be complicated. Our mind and body function optimally when they have what they needsufficient nutrients from food, sufficient sleep, sufficient exercise, and a mindful approach to emotional health.

Although the goal is to lose 10% of your body weightas that is considered what's most clinically impactful to your metabolic healthCalibrates earliest members lost an average of 15% of their body weight. Within three months, members typically lose 5% of their body weight, reduce their body-fat percentage, and experience improvements in sleep, energy, and exercise stamina. After six months, many reach their 10% weight-loss goal, measure a smaller waist, and meet new exercise goals. And at the end of the year, they maintain their initial weight-loss goals, surpass them, and see clinically significant improvements across metabolic and inflammatory markers.

Calibrate recently launched The Calibrate Results Guarantee, based on its earliest members who have completed the program. On average, these members lost 15% of their body weight and reported an 88% increase in energy and an 83% improvement in food habits.
