How does weight loss work?

Weight management looks a little different for everyone who dedicates themselves to reaching their goals. While some strategies may work well for you, they might not be as effective for others. 

Dr. Tucker can guide you through healthy weight loss with an individualized weight-loss plan that includes nutritional recommendations and diet planning. She supports you as you follow a nutritious, low-calorie diet and integrate some level of exercise into your routine. 

Dr. Tucker accounts for any dietary restrictions you have and offers additional recommendations based on your lifestyle and habits, including stress management and reduced alcohol consumption. She also considers your goals and starting point while planning your program. 

How can medication help with weight loss?

Dr. Tucker may prescribe Wegovy® (semaglutide) as part of your weight-loss program. This injectable prescription medication can kickstart and accelerate your weight loss by reducing your appetite and cravings. The effects of the medication make it easier for you to adjust to a new diet with fewer calories. It also increases your energy, which makes it easier to exercise.

Semaglutide works by mimicking an important hormone in your gut. Your gut releases this hormone when you eat, which stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin. The insulin then processes the sugar from your blood into energy. The hormone also signals your brain to make you feel full and suppress your appetite. 

Wegovy was once only a diabetes medication but is now widely used for weight-loss purposes. 

What are the health and wellness benefits of weight loss?

Weight loss can have a strong impact on your personal well-being and your overall health. While your experience with weight loss may differ from someone else’s, common improvements that occur with weight loss include:

  • Lower blood sugar
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Lower triglycerides
  • Diabetes management or prevention
  • Heart disease management or prevention
  • Better joint health and mobility
  • Improved mental health
  • Easier breathing during sleep
  • More energy

If you already have conditions related to your weight, like sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, or Type 2 diabetes, a weight-loss program with or without semaglutide may improve those conditions or slow their progression.
