Is Semaglutide Right for Me?

If you are struggling with healthy eating habits, Semaglutide is an excellent option for losing weight. Whether you deal with cravings or binge eating, this medication can help regulate your appetite by reducing hunger and cravings and increasing the feeling of being full so you eat appropriate portion sizes. It also helps the body to utilize sugar for energy and burning fat. Semaglutide provides weight loss results two times more effective than other approaches and is quickly becoming the most prescribed weight loss medication.

When Can I Expect to Lose Weight With Semaglutide?

Each body reacts and responds differently to a new medication. With Semaglutide, some people begin to see results within the first few weeks, experiencing a decrease in appetite and losing up to 20 lbs a month. Others may see results after a few months of use, but it is usually significant. The factor that really determines the rate of your success is how quickly and effectively you tolerate the medicine as the dose is gradually increased. Once you are on the full dose, that is when you can expect to see the most significant and noticeable weight loss.

How Often is Semaglutide Taken?

The Semaglutide injections are administered subcutaneously just under the skin with a tiny needle, much like insulin. This is done once a week at any time of day and can be done with or without food at the time of the injection. One reason why Semaglutide is preferred by both patients and doctors is how easy the dosage administration is and the weight loss results averaging 15-20% of total body weight.

Will I Still See Results if I Don’t Exercise in Conjunction With Taking Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is shown to work without exercise being added to the regimen, but patients will experience better and quicker results if they partake in some form of doctor-recommended exercise appropriate for their level of physical activity. As long as it’s safe and comfortable, you should always try to get your body moving as much as possible to build up stamina and tone muscles, as well as other benefits.

Lipo B

Are There Any Side Effects to Lipo B Injections?

The natural compounds found in a Lipo B injection are harmless and provide great value to your body. The only side effects present are for patients that are allergic to a compound found in these injections. We pay close attention to each patient to make sure an excess of nutrients won’t harm your system.

How Much Weight Can I Lose with Lipo B?

Just like any other weight loss treatment, how much weight you lose depends on your current body weight, diet choices, and physical exercise. To lose a healthy weight of around 2-4 pounds per week, we recommend pairing your injections with a reduced calorie and carb diet.

How Frequently Do I Need Lipo B Injections?

You can get this “fat-burning” injection as frequently as once or twice per week to start seeing immediate results.

Should I Work Out While on Lipo B Injections?

While it is not required, any form of physical activity or exercise can help strengthen the results of Lipo B injections. If you don’t feel like going to the gym, simply cleaning your house, finding a Zumba class, or doing yoga for 30 minutes a day can help significantly.

How Do I Know if I Have Low Testosterone?

Some of the more common symptoms of low-T include weight gain, thinning hair or less body hair, trouble focusing, low energy levels, anxiety and depression, decreased sex drive, and erectile dysfunction. Many men think these are just signs of aging, but if the issue is low-testosterone, it’s completely treatable. Blood testing is the most accurate method for diagnosing low-T, so if you’re experiencing symptoms, schedule an appointment with your doctor to figure out what’s really going on with your body.

TRT is not a cure, but rather a long-term solution for treating your symptoms of low-T. Your symptoms can come back if you stop testosterone therapy, so we recommend sticking with the program as long as you want to enjoy the beneficial effects of feeling healthier.
