Lose Weight Sustainably With Simple Weekly Injections

Semaglutide, initially developed for managing type 2 diabetes, has emerged as a groundbreaking solution for weight loss. This medication works by mimicking the GLP-1 hormone, which regulates appetite and enhances the feeling of fullness. Consequently, patients who take Semaglutide regularly don’t feel the hunger pangs that often derail their weight loss efforts, leading to effective and sustainable weight loss. At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine in Dallas, we integrate Semaglutide into customized weight loss plans tailored to individual needs, helping patients achieve sustainable weight loss.

How Semaglutide works for weight loss

Semaglutide acts as a GLP-1 receptor agonist, engaging receptors in the brain that control hunger and satiety. This medication operates through two primary mechanisms: suppressing appetite and delaying gastric emptying.

Suppressing appetite

Semaglutide works by mimicking the action of the GLP-1 hormone, which is naturally produced in the intestines in response to food intake. GLP-1 plays a crucial role in regulating appetite by signaling the brain to acknowledge fullness and reduce the desire to eat. When Semaglutide binds to GLP-1 receptors in the brain, it activates these pathways, resulting in reduced hunger and fewer cravings. This effect makes it easier for individuals to adhere to a low-calorie diet, which is essential for sustainable weight loss.

Delaying gastric emptying

Another significant mechanism of Semaglutide is its ability to slow down gastric emptying. This means that food stays in the stomach longer, prolonging the sensation of fullness after meals. By delaying the rate at which the stomach empties its contents into the small intestine, Semaglutide helps to extend the period of satiety, thereby reducing the urge to eat between meals. This delayed gastric emptying contributes to a lower overall calorie intake, which is critical for effective weight management.

Benefits of using Semaglutide:

  • Significantly reduces hunger and cravings, facilitating adherence to a healthy diet.
  • Patients can lose up to 15.8% of their body weight over 68 weeks with consistent use.
  • Lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases, enhancing overall health.
  • A once-a-week injection fits easily into busy lifestyles.
  • Lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels, improving overall metabolic health.
  • Patients often report improved mood, energy levels, and physical health.

How much weight can I lose with Semaglutide?

Semaglutide has shown impressive results in clinical studies for weight loss, offering significant reductions in body weight for many users. In a notable study, participants who used Semaglutide alongside a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity lost an average of 15.8% of their body weight over 68 weeks. This is considerably higher than what is typically achieved through diet and exercise alone.

However, the amount of weight you lose with Semaglutide depends on numerous factors, including your diet and exercise, adherence to the treatment plan, and health conditions. To maximize the results of your treatment and continue maintaining your weight even after you discontinue Semaglutide, you must develop lifestyle habits that support your weight goals.

Achieving long-term success

While Semaglutide can kickstart your weight loss journey, it’s not a silver bullet for excess weight. Semaglutide can curb hunger pangs, but you still need to make lifestyle changes that can create a calorie deficit, i.e., you must burn more calories than you consume. That’s the only way to achieve sustainable weight loss. Here’s how to maximize your results:

  • Healthy Diet: Focus on whole foods, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Avoid processed foods and sugars that can hinder progress.
  • Regular Exercise: Incorporate physical activity into your daily routine. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous activity each week.
  • Hydration: Drink plenty of water to control hunger and support overall health.
  • Sleep: Ensure adequate sleep each night to regulate hunger hormones and reduce cravings.
  • Stress Management: Practice techniques like yoga, meditation, or deep breathing to manage stress and prevent emotional eating.
