Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are cutting-edge medications that provide powerful weight loss benefits.
These powerful new peptide medications dramatically reduce hunger, help you feel full faster, controls blood sugar, and helps reduce cravings.
When to Consider Medical Weight Loss
An unhealthy metabolism no longer responds to diet and exercise alone. Once you start to get insulin resistant or actual diabetes (Type 2), once cholesterol numbers ramp up, and the weight piles on more and more, it is very hard to get back. The basal metabolic rate has dropped and patients are unable to shed pounds, even with aggressive diet and exercise. Hormonal imbalances can create a vicious cycle with metabolic issues. These powerful new medications can help with weight loss resistance so you can shed pounds feel like yourself again.
Why Semaglutide or Tirzepatide?
These new peptides are the best tool in the toolbox when it comes to medications for weight loss. Unlike the way most weight loss drugs work, they do not act as a stimulant. Semaglutide (active ingredient in Ozempic and Wegovy) is a selective glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist that increases glucose-dependent insulin secretion, decreases inappropriate glucagon secretion, slows gastric emptying; also acts in the areas of the brain involved in regulation of appetite and caloric intake.
Tirzepatide (active ingredient in Mounjaro) is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, and also a GIP-1 (glucagon-like peptide) receptor agonist, so it is a single peptide that triggers the body's receptors for two natural incretin hormones, resulting in a more significant effect on glucose and body weight. While the brand Mounjaro is not indicated by the FDA for weight loss at this time, change in weight was a secondary endpoint.
When used in conjunction with our whole foods nutrition plan, movement prescription, and a healthy lifestyle, they assist in weight loss. This is why semaglutide and tirzepatide are the only medications we use in our holistic weight loss program.
How do I use Semaglutide or Tirzepatide?
Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are once weekly subcutaneous injections (into fat) with a small insulin syringe. The dose is gradually increased over time, allowing you to continue to reap the benefits while minimizing side effects.
How much weight will I lose?
The average weight loss with semaglutide at 3 months was about 14.7 pounds, according to a recent 2022 study published in JAMA, and then 27 pounds at 6 months. It was also shown to improve overall health, including lower hemoglobin A1cs, cholesterol numbers, blood pressure, and reduce the risk of major cardiovascular events such as heart attack and stroke.
In another intense randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trial, the estimated mean (average) body weight change from baseline to week 68 was –16.0% of body weight for the semaglutide arm vs –5.7% for the placebo group.
In cross-trial data, Tirzepatide demonstrated significant weight results across 5 clinical trials.
Of course, results are individual and are not guaranteed. Lasting weight loss depends on diet and lifestyle habits.
How does the program work?
Simple. Schedule a brief consult with our medical provider to provide medical clearance and RX for the medication. Included with the cost of your consult is bloodwork (to track internal progress) and a whole foods based meal plan. We will do an InBody scan to assess actual body composition, along with weight. You will also be given recommendations for foundational supplements to support your health.
For a comprehensive weight loss strategy, we recommend also booking with our nutrition coach and utilizing our exclusive access to an affordable world-class virtual personal trainer via an app on your smartphone. Keep reading for more info.
