The FDA has approved the first weight-loss drug in seven years for people who are either obese or overweight with at least one weight related medical condition.

GAYLE KING: Welcome back to "CBS This Morning." We're learning more about the first weight loss drug approved by the FDA in seven years.

That's a lot of people.

JON LAPOOK: That's a lot in one week.

JON LAPOOK: So Gayle, because I've already been asked this by half a dozen people.

It's for people who are obese, a BMI of 30 or more-- we'll talk about how you calculate BMI in a second-- or 27, overweight, 27 or more BMI with one weight-related medical condition like high blood pressure, things like that.

GAYLE KING: BMI's your body mass index.

And for people out there, just Google BMI calculator.

JON LAPOOK: Well, that's--.

JON LAPOOK: Over 40% of people over the age of 20 are obese?

GAYLE KING: So how does this work.

GAYLE KING: I like this.

JON LAPOOK: It's an injection.

GAYLE KING: So once you start it, do you have to stay on it?

GAYLE KING: Can you take it for a while, get your desired effect, and then get off of it.

And other people just went on placebo.

Although, for some people, because it has been used off-label with a drug called Ozembic for weight loss, for some people, it gives them that little boost.

ANTHONY MASON: Do people lose enough weight to improve their overall health.

GAYLE KING: It still sounds very exciting to me, Jon.

JON LAPOOK: I think it is-- and I think we have to say this.

GAYLE KING: Yes.

JON LAPOOK: And people say, just snap out of it.

For a lot people it's not willpower?

And this is going to be great for those people who just can't do it, no matter all of their diet, all their exercise, they still can't lose the weight.

GAYLE KING: What about after you have a baby and you have extra weight.

JON LAPOOK: Well, it's not known, really, during pregnancy about it.

GAYLE KING: But you do have to do that.
