Right now, more than 67 per cent of Australian adults are overweight or obese*, and if current trends continue, more than 18 million Australians will struggle with an unhealthy weight by the year 2030.
There’s no denying it is a chronic health issue in Australia, but it’s time we move away from the shame and blame that often comes with conversations about weight gain, weight control and weight loss.
That’s because up to 80 per cent of our weight is determined by our genes.
With biological factors playing such a large role in determining our metabolism and weight, sometimes simply changing our diets or increasing our levels of exercise just isn’t enough to lose weight or keep it off.
Obesity is not simply a matter of someone’s lack of effort or self-control, but a biological issue influenced by our genetics.
That’s why Juniper has developed a comprehensive weight management program different to anything you’ve tried before.
A different approach
Juniper’s Weight Reset Program is designed for long-term results. Think of it as a modern, medical reset for your metabolic health.
Through a combination of medical expertise, health coaches, medication and lifestyle changes, the mind and body’s approach to food is shifted. Medication approved for weight management is prescribed by doctors, addressing weight on a biological level.
It’s an industry leading, evidence-based program, backed by medical doctors, dietitians, and endocrinologists. Plus, the focus isn’t solely on losing weight, but on successfully keeping it off long-term.
Patients form sustainable habits that stick through a holistic approach to weight management that combines medication with health coaching.
How does the Juniper Weight Reset Program work?
A breakthrough daily medication made of a hormone that already exists in our gut is used to regulate appetite, manage cravings, and slow the metabolic system.
Over time, it safely lowers the body’s “set point” – the weight your body naturally works to maintain on a biological level.
But it’s not just about medication: Juniper’s Weight Reset Program is a holistic and comprehensive approach. Along the way, patients receive ongoing health coaching from dieticians and medical experts and have access to a community of like-minded women for support.
Physical, mental, and biometric health is tracked in weekly check-ins with a medical doctor, with regular adjustments made to each and every program along the way.
A proven weight loss – and management - approach
Of course, every weight loss journey is different, and the program is designed to be tailored for your individual needs.
On average, through Juniper’s Weight Reset Program, 25 per cent of patients lose more than 10 per cent of their body weight after five months, with a 2020 study from the International Journal of Obesity finding that patients lost 12 per cent of their body weight in 52 weeks using the same class of medications, combined with behavioural changes.
The program is designed so that after 12 months, blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol levels are lowered. Plus, energy levels, sleep quality and overall confidence will be improved, and patients will have built strong habits to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle.
