Develop a dependable routine, resulting in long-term healthy eating habits.

I'm on week 2 and I've lost 2.5kilos so far. The team is really helpful and I'm feeling confident about my journey. I've always struggled with overeating and now I'm struggling to finish dinner tonight!
I'm on my 14th week, I'm down just under 15kgs / 13% body weight / 3.4% body fat / 11cm on my waist. I was pretty lucky where the nausea wasn't really noticeable, I just felt fuller quicker which was my biggest problem, portion control.
I'm around 3.5 months into my journey and its been awesome. I must admit I was a bit sceptical at first, started at 101kg+, down to 90kg. My NY resolution for as long as I can remember has been to get back down to 90kg. I'd get to 94-95kg but then blow out...this program has been a game changer for me.
Hey guys I have been doing the program for about 3 months and it's the best thing I have ever done. I had been extremely neglectful towards my health leading to this. I had let my weight get to 119.4kgs which was so detrimental to my overall well-being. Today I sit 103kgs whilst I have fair bit more weight to lose, I feel so much better already.
Non-scale victory. I started my weight loss journey at size 40 pants... I put on a pair of 36 last night that are now way too big. Gotta go shopping again! It's taken me 11 months to get here but it's well worth it. It's a marathon, not a sprint!
I now am much more comfortable with myself I don't get embarrassed working out in front of other people. The gym is a fun place to me now. I make sure I gym 5 times a week, I walk a lot as well. I now make way better food choices and I know this time I'm going to be able to keep the weight off.
It's been awesome. Size 42, 133kg at start of this program. Now 126kg 4 weeks in.
I'm so happy this morning. My weight is 99.8kg. This is the first time I've been under 100kg in years, let alone actually losing weight instead of putting it on. As I don't have a tape measure, I'm not sure of my weight size but I can definitely tell from my belt and jeans that I've trimmed down. Dropped one and now almost two belt holes!
The weight loss so far is really good. I've tried for months and months and only gotten heavier. This is the first positive weight loss I've experienced in a couple of years. Thank you.
How much weight will I lose? How quick?
This varies person-to-person – some Pilot members have responded quickly, dropping several kilos in the first few weeks.
Clinical research from studies of helps paint a picture of what you can expect:
1/4 of patients lose more than 10% of their body weight after 5 months:
In a 2017 study, at 20 weeks, 76.1% of participants has lost more than 5% of body weight, and 28.3% had lost more than 10%. 
After a year, the average patient lost 12.1%
In a 2020 study from the International Journal of Obesity, patients lost 12.1% of their body weight in 52 weeks using this class of medications, combined with behavioural changes (nearly twice as much versus behavioural changes alone). 
What makes this program unique?
Pilot pairs the most up-to-date medical science from doctors, with targeted lifestyle changes.
For many men, weight loss is very difficult because your body is fighting against you. It interprets weight loss as a life-threatening problem and responds by slowing your metabolism and increasing your hunger.
Our program introduces clinically-proven hunger regulating medications, and combines them with a health coach so you can learn about your body while also losing a substantial portion of your body weight.
What treatments can Pilot doctors provide?
Due to Australian therapeutic goods regulations, we are unable to list this class of treatments by name.
You will have to proceed to the doctors consult stage on Pilot (and be approved by a doctor) to learn deeper specifics.
What we can say, however, is that they were approved in 2017 in Australia for doctors to prescribe for weight management. Previously, they were prescribed to diabetics before researchers realised their useful application in regulating your metabolism and hunger hormones. They are considered safe and particularly effective.
How do I take the medication?
The medication is injected via a pen (tiny needle — like a pin-prick) in the upper thigh or abdomen.
This is a simple daily process that is picked up in a couple of days.
Is the medication safe?
The medications available in the program will be named and fully explained after your doctor's consult (due to advertising regulations). They are considered safe, have been widely used since 2005 and are generally very well tolerated, with minimal side effects (the main one being nausea for some patients).
For anyone with a personal or family history that might put them at a slightly higher risk for extremely rare side effects, your doctor will always err on the side of caution and recommend other options in those situations.
How much does the program cost?
The cost of this program (including the medication, doctor support, and ongoing behavioural coaching) is $395 per month, or about $13.00 a day.
Most of our members end up spending less on food each day as their appetites are reduced — so the program can actually be very affordable, as it's comparable to a sandwich and a drink at a cafe.
Does this program require me to go on a diet?
No. We don't force you to follow an eating plan, but your health coach will be helping you make healthier food and lifestyle choices through targeted behavioural changes.
What if I don't want to talk to my weight loss group?
That's fine, you don't have to be best mates with them. Your health coach will still want to check in on your progress - get your weight, waist measurement, and motivation levels. If you aren't comfortable sharing this with the group, then this can be shared directly with your health coach - no problems.
Why did Pilot create this program?
Australian men on Pilot are frustrated about their inability to lose weight and keep it off.
Many of our long-term patients have expressed a desire to lose weight. Many of the doctors on Pilot wanted to talk to their patients about their weight. This is our foray into vastly improving the metabolic health of Australian men.
