What are the benefits of semaglutide for weight loss?

Semaglutide has been shown to be very effective for weight loss. In clinical trials, people who took semaglutide lost an average of 15-20% of their body weight. Semaglutide is also well-tolerated, with most people experiencing only mild side effects, such as nausea and diarrhea. 

The nubmer one reason for obesity is GENETICS. Children of obese parents are 50%-85% more likely to be obese yourself even with proper diet and exercise. 

Big diets lose weight but our brains always bring us back to the weight that our brain thinks it needs. 90% of The Biggest Loser contestants simply gain the weight back. Our brains can work against us in our journey to weight loss. 

Semaglutide gets to the heart of the matter and pushes through our brains' set points and obstacles. 


How effective is semaglutide for weight loss?

Semaglutide is one of the most effective weight loss medications on the market. In a recent study, people who took semaglutide lost an average of 16.5% of their body weight over 68 weeks. This is significantly more weight loss than is achieved with other weight loss medications and is on par with the overall percentages lost by patitents after undergoing bariatric weigh loss surgery. 

That is just incredible! 

Another study, published in the journal Obesity, found that people who took semaglutide lost an average of 15% of their body weight over 68 weeks. The study also found that semaglutide was effective at improving blood sugar control and reducing the risk of heart disease.

Is semaglutide safe?

Semaglutide is generally safe for most people and has been prescribed for years under the brand Ozempic for several years. However, it is important to talk to your medical provider before taking semaglutide to make sure that it is right for you. Semaglutide is not generally recommended for people with certain medical conditions, such as pancreatitis and type 1 diabetes.

Who is a good candidate for semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a good candidate for people who are struggling to lose weight with diet and exercise alone. It is also a good candidate for people who have obesity-related health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.  Specifically, the FDA recommends Wegovy, aka semaglutide, for weight loss if you meet one of the following criteria: Have a body mass index (BMI) of 27 (about 20-30 lbs overweight) or greater and at least one weight-related condition, such as high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes or high cholesterol.
