Hims & Hers Launches Holistic Weight Loss Program to Break the Endless Cycle of Weight Gain and Loss
Telemedicine company Hims & Hers announced the launch of its new weight loss service, “Weight Loss by Hims & Hers,” in a press release on Monday, December 4, 2023. The new service aims to establish itself as a holistic alternative to traditional weight loss strategies, emphasizing users’ individual goals, biology, and unique medical & health circumstances to create a tailor-made weight loss strategy specifically for them.
As part of its new weight loss service, Hims & Hers also announced that it had made a key hire with the addition of Dr. Craig Primack, M.D, to serve at the company’s new SVP of Weight Management. “After treating thousands of patients over the years, I’ve learned that people very commonly blame themselves for an inability to lose weight,” said Dr. Primack in Monday’s press release. “We are shifting the paradigm in weight loss to help people curb cravings, decrease binge eating and maintain a healthy lifestyle with a program unlike any available”.
Founded in 2017, Hims & Hers Health, Inc. has established itself as one of the key players in the telehealth/telemedicine industry. It can be accessed across all 50 states to “connect consumers to licensed healthcare professionals… for numerous conditions related to sexual health, hair care, mental health, skincare, primacy care, and more,” as stated on the company’s LinkedIn page. The launch of this weight loss program marks the second additional service to be announced by Hims & Hers this year, after the launch of “Heart Health by Hims” in August.
