Obesity is defined as a BMI greater than 30, and you are overweight if your BMI is 25-29. Not sure what your BMI is? You can use this online calculator to find out where you stand. Chances are that you are not sure, so the first step would be to determine your current BMI. Another consideration to think about is your current health. Are you currently being treated for any medical conditions? Can these conditions be prevented if you are able to lose weight? What about exercise? Do you currently exercise?
If so, how much? Do you have physical limitations as to why you cannot exercise? How about work? Do you sit behind a desk all day? Or are you on the move for 8 hours? How are your eating habits? Are you an emotional eater? Do you overindulge during social aspects of your life? Do you know what it means to eat healthy and have balance? Pyure Wellness & Aesthetics can help guide you through your weight loss journey and provide support and accountability through this process.
Semaglutide: FDA approved for chronic weight management.
In recent years, there have been numerous weight loss programs brought to light. The more common treatments for medical weight loss have been the HCG diet and phentermine. The FDA has put forth regulations on the use of HCG for weight loss. Semaglutide might be just what you have been looking for.
How does it work?
Semaglutide is a GLP-1 (glucagon-like -peptide 1). The action of the medication is appetite suppression, decreased hunger, and in turn a decrease in caloric intake. The treatment consists of a weekly injection which is administered by the patient themselves. There are increases in dosages throughout the duration of the treatment until the desired dose is reached. This is generally a slow process, but the results are well worth the wait! But remember, as, with any weight loss program, exercise and a healthy lifestyle are going to be important to your success.
Take control of your weight and your life.
