If you are considering losing weight to reduce health risk factors and achieve a healthier lifestyle, one of the most important measures to change is your set weight point – the weight range your body tends to naturally maintain.

Prescription medications for weight loss can help when combined with a healthy eating and exercise program.
The hub.health medical team is passionate about providing a nurturing healthcare environment, with access to weight loss medication.
Prescription Medications for Obesity and Weight Loss
Prescription weight loss medications may be a recommended treatment option for people with obesity where lifestyle interventions alone have not helped to reduce and maintain weight, or for people with a BMI greater than 27 who may have obesity-related complications.
These medications work by adjusting the hormonal response for appetite regulation and, over time, shifting your set weight point to a lower range.
Very Low-Calorie Diet (VLCD)
The Very Low-Calorie Diet uses meal replacement products, such as shakes and soups, designed to provide all the necessary nutrients, minerals, vitamins and fibre required for healthy body function while keeping calorie intake low, typically between 800-1200 calories. They are beneficial for rapid weight loss in people who are obese or overweight and have not had success with lifestyle interventions alone or need to lose weight quickly for medical reasons such as certain surgical procedures. They may also benefit people looking to improve obesity-related health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. These meal replacement plans are usually low in carbohydrates and high in protein to help preserve lean muscle mass while promoting weight loss.
Balanced Eating and Nutrition Tips for Weight Loss
Repeatedly choosing fad diets or meal plans that eliminate certain food groups to reduce calorie intake is called yo-yo dieting. This type of eating can cause repeated cycles of weight loss and regain, which can lead to metabolic damage and muscle loss and increase the risk of chronic diseases.
Choosing sustainable lifestyle habits, like nutritionally balanced eating, is more supportive of achieving long-term weight management goals. This style of eating focuses on whole, nutrient-dense foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, low-fat dairy and healthy fats that provide all the essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and fibre your body and brain need to support overall health and well-being.
Movement and Exercise for Weight Loss
Embracing physical activity and movement that is enjoyable is by far the best approach to sustainable weight loss. This will mean something different for everyone; for some, it could be a session at the gym, for others, it could be gardening, a leisurely stroll, playing sports with the kids or adventure hiking. What matters the most is that you are physically active and enjoying yourself.
Regular movement each day at any level increases strength and stamina, boosts mood, and improves sleep quality. It can also reduce stress, anxiety and depression, which are common triggers for emotional eating, potentially resulting in weight gain.
It’s time to look after your health
When considering weight loss as part of your journey to better health, it is important to choose a supportive and evidence-based approach.
At hub.health, our medical team will work with you to treat obesity and overweight with clinically proven weight loss meds, guiding you towards a healthier version of yourself.
Weight Loss FAQs
What type of weight loss treatments do you offer?
How do weight loss medications work?
The weight loss injections contain one active ingredient. When injected, this active ingredient mimics the effects of a specific hormone in the body that helps to reduce appetite, increase feelings of fullness, and slow stomach emptying, leading to a reduced calorie intake that ultimately promotes weight loss.
It’s important to note that these medications are prescription-only and should only be taken under the guidance of a healthcare professional in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program.
What results can I expect from these treatments?
The results of weight loss injection treatments can vary depending on the specific medication, individual factors such as age, gender, and medical history, and personal adherence to a healthy lifestyle. However, some general potential benefits that may be associated with these weight loss treatments include:
- Physical health improvements to important health markers, such as blood pressure, blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels, sleep quality, and joint pain, and a reduced risk of developing obesity-related diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, and type-2 diabetes.
- Mental health improvements, such as improved self-esteem, mood, and confidence, and reduced symptom severity of depression and anxiety.
- Improved quality of life, including increased energy levels, better mobility, and the ability to engage in activities that may have seemed off-limits due to excess weight.
- Weight reduction has been shown in several studies. However, the amount of weight loss can vary depending on the medication, duration of treatment, and personal adherence to a healthy lifestyle.
It’s important to note that weight loss meds are not a magic solution. They must be used in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise for the best results.
