Weight loss what gives?
You work out, watch what you eat, and your weight doesn’t seem to budge. So what gives?
It is so easy to say, “to lose weight, you have to eat less.” You cut calories, but what do you do if you are cutting calories and not seeing the results that you expect?
What about exercise? Is exercise helping you to lose weight? Exercise helps to increase metabolism, and strength, protect joints, and increase energy levels.
What are the benefits of losing weight?
- increased mobility
- reduced risk of injury
- difficulty getting up and down
- increased energy
- feeling satisfied with smaller portions of food.
- Shopping for clothes is more enjoyable
- reduced joint pain and back pain
- less dependence on many daily medications (if your doctor recommends)
- improve hypertension and diabetes
If you are in this cycle of cutting calories and not seeing the results you are expecting, medications like semaglutide can help tip the scales.
Semaglutide is a GLP-1, a type 2 diabetes medication, that can be used for weight loss. It has had great success in helping people lose weight without the use of stimulants like phentermine. With exercise, it allows you to learn how to eat better and make better meal choices.
Tirzepatide is another GLP-1 medication that is newer but it too can be used for weight loss. It is similar to Semaglutide in how it works.
Both medications are flexible to take and do not cause withdrawal.
