In an Australian-first, Pilot, a men’s health platform, has launched its Metabolic Reset Program, a weight loss solution that uses clinically proven medication alongside personal health coaching to help Australian men lose weight, and keep it off.
Pilot is Australia’s biggest men’s healthcare start-up. Since its launch in February 2019, Pilot’s end-to-end telehealth platform has been used by more than 100,000 Australian men. Pilot sets out to improve access to healthcare for men by making it simple and online and reducing stigmas around health issues such as erectile dysfunction, weight loss, sexual health, mental health and more.
Losing weight is difficult for the 67 per cent of Australians who are overweight or obese and often receive prescribed lifestyle modifications that don’t have a material impact on their weight.
Why a weight-loss program?
“One of Australia’s biggest killers is metabolic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases with one in three Australian men living with obesity,” says Pilot co-founder Benny Kleist.
“What most people don’t know is that 80 per cent of weight gain is determined by our genetics. For those who are overweight or obese, most don’t have a say in their ability to lose weight with diet and exercise alone.
“I watched my brother struggle to lose weight for years no matter what he tried, it affected him both physically and emotionally – which is what inspired us to develop the Metabolic Reset Program.”
Not your typical weight loss program – it actually works
With over 1000 patients participating in its early testing phase, Pilot’s Metabolic Reset Program has already received a high amount of interest. Collectively, Pilot’s patients have lost more than 3 tonnes of weight. Now, the program is open to all eligible Australians to help them take control of their own weight.
“I’m around 3.5 months into my journey and it’s been awesome. I must admit I was a bit sceptical at first, started at 101+kg, down to 90kg. This program has been a game-changer for me,” said one patient.
Pilot’s Metabolic Reset Program uses a new class of prescription medication that regulates appetite by mimicking a naturally occurring gut hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1).
It works by slowing down the rate at which the stomach empties, resulting in reduced hunger, increased feelings of fullness, and reductions in food intake. Participants using treatments of this class lost 15 per cent of their body weight, as reported by The New York Times.
The Metabolic Reset program costs $13 a day, including all doctor’s consults and support, monthly delivery of treatment, as well as a personal health coach available at any time.
Pilot is committed to the program’s efficacy and provides patients with a money-back guarantee if they don’t see a change within 30 days. To check your eligibility for the program, why not complete Pilot’s online assessment?
