SEE THE DIFFERENCE ONE YEAR MAKES
Our one-year virtual program is a modern, medical solution that targets the root cause of your weight. Because weight isn't a lifestyle choice—it's biological. Calibrate treats it that way, so you can reset your metabolic system and lose weight from the inside out.
“Eating less and exercising more isn't enough. Calibrate fights biology with biology.”

Designed for your Biology.
Not your willpower.
When traditional diets don't work and your weight plateaus, it's not because you need more willpower. If the number on the scale is stuck, it's often because your metabolism is programmed to do everything it can to maintain your weight. That weight is called your “set point,” and it's why 80% of people who lose at least 10% of their weight will gain it back within the first year. Calibrate makes it possible to adjust your set point by working with the biology that drives it.
You'll start with lab work so we can set you up for success. You'll review your results and weight health history with your Calibrate doctor via video. You'll get lab work a few times during the year and we'll work with your insurance to get it covered.
Your Calibrate doctor will prescribe an FDA-approved metabolic medication that's the best fit for your biology, lifestyle, and goals. We'll help you find a medication covered by insurance, too.
We'll match you with a dedicated Calibrate coach based on the coaching style that works best for you. You'll check in regularly via video, and we're always available via chat to keep you motivated or help you get back on track.
You'll connect to your included smart scale and our free app, so you can track your weight, sleep, activity, and food. Your Calibrate doctor and coach will also be able to connect with you to see your progress and modify your plan if needed.
We'll draw on the latest science to help you address the four pillars of weight health—your food, sleep, exercise, and emotional health. Comprehensive treatment that includes medication together with these pillars creates the best results.
Every week, you'll focus on one tiny tweak that's based on changes proven to help reduce weight and improve metabolic health––designed to meet you where you are.
You'll learn the science behind the strategies. Each weekly goal you set with your coach is supported by step-by-step lessons to help you integrate it into your life and turn it into a habit.
We'll personalize your program as you go, so it's always doable. What you'll do during the program is based on the science of what leads to lifelong weight loss. How you do it is based on you. On vacation? Have the dessert. Struggling with exercise? We'll adjust your goals together.
We Combine What Works
The Calibrate Difference
Metabolic medication that's a fit for your biology.
The right prescription metabolic medication will help you not only jumpstart, but also maintain weight loss—all as you improve your metabolic health. Calibrate's options are safe, FDA-approved, and support successful lifestyle changes by telling your brain to decrease hunger, increase fullness, and regulate hormones. These medications, called GLP-1s (glucagon-like peptide-1s), address biology in a way that helps lower your set point.
Your Calibrate doctor will prescribe a medication that's the best fit for your biology (based on lab work), lifestyle, and goals, so that you're set up to succeed as you begin your coaching. Both the medication and lab work are usually covered by insurance. Read more about the medication here.
Coaching to target four proven pillars of metabolic health.
Your weight health is impacted by your daily food, sleep, exercise, and emotional health. Studies suggest that comprehensive treatment of all four pillars creates the best weight health results. So we break down the science behind each factor and tailor a plan to help you feel better, lose weight, and improve your overall metabolic health.
Our four pillars of metabolic health:
Decreasing processed and disease-promoting foods in your diet
Increasing quality foods that work with your budget and dietary restrictions
Feeling in control of what you eat
Tracking sleep to establish a baseline
Establishing a consistent sleep schedule
Getting 8-9 hours of restful sleep every night
Making incremental improvements, no matter where you're starting
Learning how to make exercise a positive, joyful part of your life
Working up to 150 minutes of moderate activity per week—like mowing the lawn, brisk walking, and swimming
Incorporating easy-to-achieve daily practices or outlets for reducing stress
Recognizing emotional health triggers
Improving mood and stress with a holistic approach to health-impacting habits
“There are no shortcuts to metabolic health, but it also doesn't have to be complicated. Our mind and body function optimally when they have what they need—sufficient nutrients from food, sufficient sleep, sufficient exercise, and a mindful approach to emotional health.”
