New Weight Loss Medication
Over the last 15 years, Semaglutide has been used to treat type 2 diabetes, but has recently been approved by the FDA to help manage weight loss (along with diet and exercise) in obese or overweight adults with additional risk factors under the brand name Wegovy and Ozempic.
Semaglutide is injected under the skin with a tiny insulin needle, once weekly at any time of day, with or without food, and should be injected on the same day each week.
In 2 months, you could lose up to 25 pounds. In 4 months, you could lose up to 50 pounds or more and you can repeat this program as many times as you wish.
Since this medication was initially designed to treat type 2 diabetes, we typically recommend it be taken with our intermittent fasting diet.
