Woman holding yoga matWith summertime around the corner people are infatuated with the idea of losing weight, so we have the ideal beach-bod, or can get into the swimsuit we have dreamed about slipping into for so long. However, many of us look for the easier, softer way to help us with our weight loss ventures. Now, thanks to pop culture icons like the Kardashians, Elon Musk, and Chelsea Handler who have seemed to endorse the use of semaglutide injections, many who desire to lose those extra pounds for the summer, or year-round have opted-in to joining the new weight-loss trend.

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist that was recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for chronic weight management. This weight-loss remedy can be prescribed by physicians specialized in the field of non-surgical weight management who can help guide you through the process- This medication is injected underneath skin (by a needle the size of an eyelash) once a week and adjusted every 4 weeks based on your needs and body type. The effect of this medication is multifactorial:

  • Increases the passage time of your food within your GI tract, which keeps it in your stomach longer, which in turn makes you satiated for a longer period of time. Bottom line, you are less hungry.
  • It also works on the eating hormones which in summary improves our cravings of food and increases metabolism and for a more efficient weight loss.

Moreover, semaglutide helps facilitate weight management when used in conjunction with a reduced calorie diet and increased physical activity. So for the naysayers who ridicule people for using the weight-loss prescriptions, the opposing side of their opinions is, YES, semaglutide helps you lose weight, however, it is still necessary that the consumer follows a workout plan and diet to ensure the desired outcome of the medical remedy that is changing the lives of people one pound at a time.

Some who have used the medication have felt minor side effects such as nausea and bowel changes for the first 2 weeks of their dosage, however by week three the side effects wore off with either minimal or no side effects. Many people do attest to sticking to a diet, exercising regularly and staying hydrated with H2O, which also helps cleanse the body. It is very rare, if ever that semaglutide users are not satisfied with their outcome, it seems as all have gained an appreciation for semaglutide that has helped give them the extra push in their journey to weight loss.
