SEATTLE--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Arivale, a company dedicated to providing individuals a scientific path to wellness, today launched a unique and specialized Weight Loss program, which is grounded in the principles of Scientific Wellness. The Arivale Weight Loss program is distinct because it creates a unique dense, dynamic data set for each participant as the foundation for developing a unique and personalized healthy and sustainable weight loss managed by a dedicated coach.
“And for the first time in my career, a systems approach is available to address the inherent complexity of losing weight and help people optimize their wellness.”
Scientific wellness is based on a systems approach, taking an integrated, more in-depth look at a person’s wellness, including genetics, clinical test results from independent labs and detailed environmental factors including stress, sleep, activity level and family history. Based on this rich set of data, Arivale develops individually tailored coaching including ongoing diet, exercise and lifestyle recommendations, critical for long-term success.
“Research is clear, people who struggle with excess body weight are dealing with a complex scenario of biological, genetic, behavioral and environmental factors,” said Dr. Jennifer Lovejoy, Arivale’s chief translational science officer, internationally renowned obesity expert and architect of the new Weight Loss program. “And for the first time in my career, a systems approach is available to address the inherent complexity of losing weight and help people optimize their wellness.”
Arivale’s new Weight Loss program includes tailored dietary interventions considering relevant research, combined with the participant’s genetic makeup, clinical lab data from independent labs and personal dietary preferences, as well as certified coaching on behavior change. The program is designed for individuals who have not been successful in long-term weight loss, and may have tried fad or crash diets, but have struggled to maintain weight loss over time. The program objective is to help participants who would clinically benefit from losing five to ten percent of their total body weight within a target of three to six months and build on this progress.
Participants in the Arivale program work with Arivale Coaches, all of whom are licensed health care professionals such as Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs), Masters trained Certified Nutritionists (CNs) or Registered Nurses (RNs), and all are uniquely trained in systems biology and behavior change science. When participants sign up, they will immediately begin working with a coach to develop a roadmap for success. Six weeks into the program, their clinical biomarkers and genetic data are provided from external, independent clinical labs and incorporated into the action plan, which enables their coach to further work with participants to personalize their program.
In designing Arivale’s specialized Weight Loss program, Dr. Lovejoy and her colleagues built on the success that many of the current Arivale participants have achieved in meeting their weight loss goals. While results are based on specific participant performance, one participant had the following results: “What works for your body, your genetics—that doesn’t lie. It’s been transformational for me. I haven’t gained back a pound.” - Heather, Arivale Pioneer
Arivale Coaches help participants understand how their unique genetics may potentially influence factors such as: Lifetime obesity risk, increased obesity risk with aging, high waist circumference, weight gain with dietary fat, weight gain with dietary carbs, weight gain with inactivity, taste preference, and other health dimensions including: heart health, diabetes risk, inflammation, stress management, optimal nutrition and toxin sensitivity.
“While we are clear about the amount of time, energy and effort participants must dedicate to see results, we provide the roadmap and resources for them to succeed,” said Dr. Lovejoy.
The Weight Loss program includes all the benefits of the current Arivale Scientific Wellness program, and more. Special features include:
- Polygenic profiles, which associate the potential genetic influence of multiple curated, genetic variants on a participant’s weight, where they accumulate the extra pounds, as well as response to certain types and foods and exercise
- Blood and saliva analysis for more than 100 genetic and biological measurements related to overall wellness, including hormones like Leptin—which signals fullness to the body
- A systems approach to overall wellness with an increased focus on the lifestyle and behavior changes required for long-term success
- Intensive, phone-based coaching with a dedicated Arivale Coach who can translate data, support individuals in creating sustainable lifestyle changes, understand the needs and challenges of participant and celebrate their success
- Emphasis on long-term, incremental, sustainable weight loss and weight maintenance
“We launched our Weight Loss program now because of the success we have seen with many of our participants in achieving their weight loss objectives with our scientific wellness program,” said Clayton Lewis, co-founder and CEO of Arivale.
Unfortunately, most weight loss programs fail because they take a one-size fits all ‘cookie-cutter’ approach. Arivale’s personalized program is designed to inspire participants to stay focused, empower them to achieve sustainable behavioral change and ultimately, create lasting results.
The Weight Loss program is available to residents of Washington, Oregon and California and is currently available at introductory pricing through February—$2,999 one-time payment for the first year, or a $1,999 payment with $99 in 11 additional monthly payments. Individuals can enroll in the program by going to www.arivale.com/weight-loss and clicking sign up now. New enrollees will immediately receive a Fitbit Charge 2 and Fitbit Aria scale, both of which will easily link to their Arivale dashboard, so data can be shared with the Coach and progress tracked as part of the weight loss action plan.
