Weight Loss Shots

It seems everyone these days is jumping on the weight loss shots bandwagon for a good reason. Stubborn weight that’s hard to lose can become problematic, but new advancements in the weight loss world are making it easier to drop those extra pounds. About 70% of American adults are considered overweight or clinically obese.

And while a clean, wholesome, well-balanced, healthy diet and a regular workout routine are essential to losing weight and keeping it off, sometimes a little extra help is needed. That’s where weight loss or slimming shots come in.

Recently, a new injectable drug known as semaglutide has been making headlines for its ability to help take off weight easily and safely. Some call semaglutide injections a ‘magic bullet’ to drop weight when nothing else seems to work. And up until now, nothing like semaglutide has existed. The game-changing weight loss injections don’t require you to spend hours at the gym, undergo weight loss surgeries or deprive yourself of your favorite foods.

What Are Weight Loss Shots?

Weight loss shots are a tried-and-true method for dropping hard-to-get-rid-of weight via semaglutide, an FDA-approved injection.
The injections are administered weekly to aid in weight management in adults who are overweight and clinically obese with at least one weight-related condition like high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol. Now, these shots can be used in people who want to drop a few pounds too. Semaglutide was originally used to treat type 2 diabetes, where blood sugar levels tend to be high yet need to be lowered. But you don’t have to have diabetes for semaglutide to be successful.
Treatments, procedures, and medications that promise to jumpstart weight loss have been around for years. While many are considered gimmicks, semaglutide is different. It’s the first medication that contains the glucagon-like peptide-1. What makes semaglutide weight loss shots unique and highly effective is that it helps control hunger. When the drug was initially approved (under the name Ozempic), its primary purpose was to control blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetes patients. However, the side effect of weight loss was noted, and that’s why it’s now a popular way to get rid of the weight that may be standing between you and the body of your dreams.
Semaglutide is best for those with a BMI of at least 30. Of course, the shots work best when practiced with a reduced-calorie diet and regular exercise. In clinical trials, the results showed patients lost, on average, 15 percent of their body weight. In other words, you can lose up to 20 pounds per month, although everyone is different. Results are enhanced with a healthy diet, regular exercise, and healthy lifestyle habits.
There are potential yet rare risks while taking this medication. For example, during the first week you may experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, constipation and headaches.

How Do Weight Loss Injections Work?

Weight loss injections work by slowing the transit of food in the intestinal tract so that you feel fuller for longer.
Semaglutide mirrors the natural hormones the body produces when food is in the intestines. The medication reduces food cravings by limiting hunger and assisting digestion by controlling the release of GLP-1, which the body naturally releases after eating. With weight loss injections, the body has higher-than-normal levels of GLP-1 for a longer-lasting feeling of fullness, and the food moves slower through the digestive system. Because there’s a more constant feeling of fullness, you’re less hungry than usual, and therefore smaller portions of food are consumed less frequently throughout the day. For example, instead of snacking multiple times throughout the day and eating a three-course meal, you may only snack once daily and be satiated with a smaller meal.
The role of incretin hormones is to help lower blood sugar levels and trigger the release of insulin to block sugar production. It also affects how fast the body can empty food from the stomach, known as gastric emptying, by slowing it down. By creating a feeling of fullness, your appetite is lowered and helps you to lose weight. Semaglutide provides the body with high amounts of synthetic GLP-1 to keep the body feeling fuller, faster, and longer. The feeling of fullness sets in earlier than average during the digestion cycle, so there’s less of a need to continue eating by sending signals to the brain that the body is full and to stop eating food.
Semaglutide mimics the hunger hormone that senses when there is food in the intestine, which allows the pancreas to make insulin, a normal bodily process. But when this hormone slows down how quickly the gastrointestinal system works and breaks down food, the response is decreased hunger and fullness.
It’s advised to follow a proper protocol to maximize weight loss injections. The treatment begins with pre-dosed injections of a low amount of semaglutide, usually .25 mg. At first, during the initial few weeks, weekly injections are administered to the thigh, upper arm, or abdomen, which help acclimate the body to the medicine. Then, after the first month, the amount of medication in the shots will increase slightly and continue to increase monthly to help you reach your weight loss goal. The slow and steady increase of semaglutide allows the medication to continue to work as designed while minimizing potential side effects yet creating visible weight loss. Initially, there may be some nausea with the injections since they slow how fast food leaves the stomach. But once you get accustomed to it, the dose will slowly increase monthly. The goal with weight loss injections is sustained weight loss, which may require you to stay on the therapy long term. Customizable maintenance plans also help support weight loss and prevent you from gaining back weight.

Who is a Candidate for Weight Loss Shots?

Slimming weight loss shots aren’t suitable for everyone looking to lose weight, but many benefit from them.
Those who see the most benefit from the injections are overweight, have type 2 diabetes and can’t lose weight, or are as clinically-diagnosed with obesity (their health is at risk due to heavy weights and a BMI over 30.). However, most patients who are deemed good candidates for weight loss injections may be able to lose 15 percent of their overall body weight.
You may not be a candidate for weight loss shots if you currently have medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasias, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and already taking a GLP-1 medication, pancreatitis, kidney disease, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

What Are The Benefits Of Weight Loss Shots?

First and foremost, the most significant benefit of weight loss shots is the ability to lose weight quickly and effectively.
But besides that, there are multiple other benefits of semaglutide injections, including:
The weekly injections are also relatively painless short of a slight pinch, and are administered with a small needle. There’s no numbing cream needed, and the injections are quick. There are a few different areas that are suitable for weight loss injection, which include:

The Results

Like any weight loss method—injections or not—there’s no such thing as immediate results.
While weight loss injections work relatively fast (as soon as the medication starts working), you’ll need to be patient and allow the medication to work.
During the first week of injections, blood sugar levels will begin to decline, and there may be some initial weight loss of one to two pounds. By the end of the first month, you will likely lose some weight. The full effects of the treatment usually take at least eight weeks, although every patient is different, and some notice results sooner or later than that.

How Much Do Weight Loss Injections Cost?

Frequently Asked Questions

Unfortunately, there is the potential for semaglutide to cause potential interactions with blood sugar-reducing medicines because the treatment lowers your blood sugar. Combining medications, like insulin, for example, with semaglutide can lead to dangerously low blood sugar levels. It may also cause interaction issues with other oral medications and affect how medications are absorbed.
It is recommended to practice at least light exercises like walking for 30 minutes per day to complement the effects of the medication.
If you miss a dose, get the injection immediately (up to five days from the scheduled visit). Then, the next dose will be administered at the next scheduled appointment. Double and extra doses are not permitted.
While there’s no hard and fast rule about what to eat and not to eat while undergoing semaglutide treatments, a clean, healthy diet will result in optimal results. A high intake of lean protein and reduced consumption of sugar, fat, and processed carbohydrates are often recommended to help counteract some side effects of the injections. However, you can take the injections with or without food.
Each patient is different, and there’s no set number of injections that you need to follow. Instead, a protocol is determined based on your goals and starting weight. Most patients start on a three-month supply and reassess at that point.
