The Qilo Story

In Africa, we're witnessing a rising concern – obesity and overweight issues that seem to keep growing. We saw that the traditional approach of `just eat less and exercise more` just wasn't cutting it. So we brought together a team of experts to design an evidence-based way to handle this. That's how Qilo was born. We believe that everyone deserves access to weight care that actually works, and that addresses all aspects of metabolic health - something that goes just beyond the number on the scale, but is also about taking care of your body in a way that's sustainable for the long haul. We want you to live healthier, for longer, and that's why we're here.
