Weight Loss Benefits of Semaglutide

In the past few years, Semaglutide has gained attention for its use in successful weight loss treatment. While originally developed for the treatment of Type II Diabetes, it has been found to promote weight loss in people with and without diabetes. It works by mimicking the actions of the GLP-1 hormone, which regulates appetite and food intake. It stimulates insulin secretion and reduces glucagon release which helps lower blood sugar and reduces hunger.

  • Weekly injections reduces appetite/cravings.
  • Improves blood sugar control.
  • Aids in weight loss.
  • Reduces excess body fat including belly fat.

To help make choosing the right foods easier while taking these medications, when you join Dr. Fisher’s program you also get free access to the EZDietPlanner & Fitness Tracker™ app. where you can follow the Semaglutide Weight Loss Diet online or on-the-go.

What foods are included in the Semaglutide Weight Loss Diet?
