Ozempic, Mounjaro, and Other Weight Loss Medications

Losing weight can be really difficult for some people, even when they try to eat healthily and exercise. That's where weight loss medications like Ozempic and Mounjaro come in! These medicines are like helpers that can give you an extra boost in your weight loss journey. However, it's important to remember they're just one part of becoming healthier.


Ozempic and Mounjaro help you feel full longer after you eat a little food. This means you won't feel like eating as much, which helps you to eat fewer calories throughout the day. Imagine having a smaller plate of your favorite meal and feeling just as satisfied as if you had a big plate. They can also help your body deal with cravings better. Most people find they won't crave sugary and high fat foods as much.


Even though these medications are super helpful, it's important not to rely on them too much. Think of them as a tool, not a cure-all. It's like when you're learning to ride a bike. Training wheels can help you start, but eventually, you'll need to ride without them. In the same way, eating healthy foods and staying active are like learning to balance on your bike. Although these medications can be taken long term, the goal would be to eventually get off of them. This can only be done with proper diet and exercise. Otherwise, the weight will return once the user gets off of the medication.


Remember that talking to a doctor is super important before starting any new medicine like Ozempic or Mounjaro. Your doctor can help you figure out if they're right for you given your medical history. Working with a dietitian will help tremendously to make sure you are able to stick to a proper high protein diet, and to establish a good exercise routine. Give us a call if you have any additional questions.
