Weight Loss for The Busy Folks of West Texas
When you live a busy lifestyle, it can be challenging to take on work and other responsibilities while also trying to squeeze time for exercise into your routine. Illness or injury might be preventing you from joining a gym. Even with a successful workout plan, it may still be difficult to achieve the body type you want. Semaglutide is an appetite-suppressing treatment that can provide moderate to dramatic weight loss results. Semaglutide helps the body to produce enough insulin when blood sugar levels are high, reduce the sugar that’s released in your blood, and help you to feel fuller longer, so fewer calories are consumed.
Simply put, semaglutide controls your appetite so you can limit the amount of food you want to eat. This strategy can help you lose unwanted pounds and maintain a healthy weight as part of your body optimization journey. If you want to achieve safe, effective, and noticeably slimming results, it’s important to also incorporate healthy lifestyle changes. In other words, semaglutide is just one part of a comprehensive dietary and wellness plan.
Additionally, GLP-1 may have a positive impact on weight loss in other ways. It can alter the hunger centers in the brain to decrease hunger, appetite, and cravings. Moreover, it supports metabolism and prolongs fullness and satiety after meals by slowing the rate of stomach emptying.
Semaglutide is not the same thing as insulin, and treatments are unlikely to cause low blood sugar. When combined with a healthy lifestyle, semaglutide can reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes by helping patients achieve significant weight loss. For optimal results, it’s recommended that you combine semaglutide with a good diet and exercise routine.
Our nurse practitioner will provide a comprehensive, one-on-one evaluation to determine whether you are a good candidate for semaglutide and help you put together a customized treatment plan. She will help you establish the best dosing to maximize results while minimizing side effects as much as possible. Semaglutide should not be seen as a “quick fix” for anyone, and each case is different. It’s important to remember that this is not a “cure” for obesity.
Patients who are under the age of 18 or have multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (tumors in your glands), diabetic ketoacidosis, or a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, or who have allergies to the ingredients should not use semaglutide. A history of pancreatitis and/or Type 1 diabetes is also contraindicated for this therapy. Patients will also be screened for disordered eating such as binge eating and emotional eating.
Reduced energy levels and gastrointestinal issues, such as nausea, are the most common side effects. These can be managed by starting at a lower dose and gradually increasing the dosage. The short-term side effects from semaglutide will subside within several days to weeks. Slim Shots can be taken each week with the tablet to help offset these side effects.
Do not use two doses at one time, and do not take semaglutide after meals. You should also try to avoid overeating while you’re taking this treatment, as doing so can lead to gastrointestinal upset. We recommend that you avoid drinking alcohol or consuming fatty or greasy foods, ultra-processed foods, and high-sugar foods while you’re taking semaglutide. Weigh yourself daily, exercise for 20 to 30 minutes each day, drink eight to 10 glasses of water, and eat slowly.
Semaglutide is made to be part of a long-term treatment plan designed to keep the weight off. However, the timeline for taking the medication varies depending on the patient and is based on unique needs.
