Medical Weight Loss
Weight loss is tricky. We must understand why the person gained weight initially in order to truly understand how to get it off.
We ALWAYS start with hormones because if they’re off, there is no reason to go any further. There is rarely a way to achieve success by addressing calories and working out when hormones are the problem. We also assess a person's metabolism, body composition and general nutritional status to make sure we have a great starting point to measure progress from.
Now, we are ready to move on to our wildly successful Semaglutide weight loss program.
What exactly is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide, better known as Wegovy or Ozempic can be a real game changer when it comes to weight loss. This medication has been studied extensively and is FDA-approved as an effective treatment option for those struggling with obesity. The semaglutide results are impressive to say the least, with users losing up to 17% of their bodyweight after one year of use. In addition, semaglutide has also been found to significantly reduce many obesity-related health risks such as high blood pressure and increased levels of cholesterol. With semaglutide weight loss results that can be felt in a short amount of time, this medication stands out from other options as a safe and uniquely effective solution for helping those on the path toward getting healthier.
By producing greater satiety during meals, it can help those struggling with compulsive eating curb their cravings and reduce their caloric intake. In clinical trials, it was compared to a placebo and showed that participants who took semaglutide lost an average of 11% more weight than those who took the placebo, ranking it as one of the most effective weight-loss aids currently in development.
Semaglutide has been used to treat diabetes and obesity.
Recent studies suggest that this weight loss option could be an effective weight loss aid for people looking for a non-surgical option. It has been shown to reduce body weight by 8-10% over 12 weeks, with participants showing decreases in BMI, waist circumference and fat mass. The effects were long-lasting, even after the usage was discontinued. Semaglutide may prove to be a viable option for individuals seeking to achieve sustained weight loss without subjecting themselves to invasive procedures. Semaglutide appears to successfully reduce body fat while promoting changes that improve overall well-being.
