If you are one of the millions on weight loss medication or are considering talking to your doctor about it, you’ll want to hear this. Joining us to share why medication is only one piece of the puzzle are Dr. Anthony Puopolo, chief medical officer for the virtual primary care provider LifeMD, and Jennifer Christman, registered dietitian and lifestyle expert from OPTAVIA—the habit-based, coach-guided lifestyle solution. They’ll discuss why lifestyle changes made while taking medication can best support long-term weight loss and overall health.

Alongside innovations in AI, medically supported weight loss is one of the largest conversations happening right now. In addition to many celebrities, millions of Americans are on weight loss medications or considering starting them, specifically GLP-1s like Ozempic and Wegovy.

While weight loss and improvements in physical health conditions are the immediate reasons for taking these medications, doctors say creating better habits is the ideal complement, as medications are just one piece of the puzzle. Behavior change is key to making a healthy lifestyle stick long-term.

Dr. Anthony Puopolo, a family practice physician trained in psychiatry and integrative medicine and chief medical officer for the virtual primary care provider LifeMD—an expert in medically supported weight loss, along with Jennifer Christman, nutrition and lifestyle expert from OPTAVIA, the habit-based, coach-guided lifestyle solution, join us to share what you need to know to lose weight and change your lifestyle with (or without) these new medications.
