Semaglutide Weight Loss

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved medication to help you with weight-loss. It works best when used in combination with a healthy diet and exercise. The largest clinical trial showed that people taking Semaglutide lost an average of almost 15% of their initial body weight. Many patients begin to experience weight loss within the first two weeks of the initial injection.

How Does Semaglutide Weight Loss Work?

Semaglutide is a hormone that plays a role in your appetite and digestion. This hormone, which is released by your body after you’ve eaten a meal, tells the body that you’re no longer hungry. It also slows down the rate at which food is digested, helping to maintain the feeling that you’re full. The net result is that you have a significantly lower calorie intake, which results in significant weight loss.

Semaglutide Weight Loss vs. Traditional Dieting

Most traditional diets rely on calorie restrictions that can trigger your body’s ‘starvation response’ also called ‘starvation mode.’ This response essentially causes your body to conserve your fat reserves, locking them up and holding on to them as long as possible. Your body then is forced to begin burning muscle and body tissue first, rather than the fat reserves you are trying to get rid of.

Semaglutide Weight Loss vs. HCG Diet

Semaglutide differs from the HCG diet because it focuses on appetite suppression, through making you feel fuller throughout the day, rather than relying on a restrictive diet and exercise plan. Also, instead of a daily injection, like with the HCG Diet, Semaglutide is administered only once a week.

How do I start the Semaglutide Weight Loss program?

After reviewing your general health and your body weight loss goal with Dr. Dean, you’ll receive a Semaglutide injection once a week, on the same day each week. It can be given at any time of day and can be taken with or without food. Since Semaglutide slows down how quickly food leaves your stomach, you may experience brief side effects, like nausea and vomiting. Once you get started on the medication, Dr. Dean will slowly increase your dosage, depending on how your body responds. This will help make side effects much more manageable. The length of treatment depends upon your desired results. Some clients use Semaglutide Weight Loss treatment only until they have achieved their desired weight target. Others may find the program beneficial for an extended period of time. Dr. Dean will provide advice and counsel so that you can make a decision that’s safe and effective for you.
