Our method to stop obesity is based on years of research and combines medical screening, a lifestyle program and professional coaching with supportive medication if necessary. The lifestyle program primarily involves modifications in personal eating, exercise and sleep patterns.
With StopOverweight I can
lose 10% of my body weight in 2 to 3 months.
OVERWEIGHT AND OBESITY
In recent years, more and more GLP-1 drugs have come on the market that have been shown to be effective against overweight and obesity. This is good news but the drug is not freely available, only by prescription and with medical supervision.
StopOverweight combines lifestyle intervention with this medication. After a careful medical intake, a treatment plan is created. This treatment plan indicates the possible target weight and which lifestyle interventions should take place. These lifestyle interventions mainly involve adjustments in personal eating, exercise and sleep patterns. After the treatment period follows a maintenance period for which the objective is to remain at target weight and anchor new habits. The body needs some time (12-18 months) to get used to the new weight.
Much research has been done in recent years on the effect of synthetic GLP-1s against obesity by research departments and universities. In a recent literature review (published May 2022 in The Lancet and reproduced in, among others, the Dutch IVM newsletter) 143 studies were listed. This so-called meta-analysis examined the additional effect of drugs on weight, when applied – as usual – in combination with lifestyle interventions (GLI).

LOSE WEIGHT WITH GUIDANCE
Medical weight loss at StopOverweight is always under medical supervision. There is a medical intake where participants complete a questionnaire and then have a meeting with the StopOverweight specialist. Participants have weekly contact with their regular practitioner. Every month, participants come to the clinic for check-ups and weigh-ins. Together we keep a close eye on the progress of weight loss. As well as possible complaints during treatment. A lifestyle coach can also be part of the treatment team.
