Weight Loss Q&A

I’ve tried every diet. Why is weight loss so hard?

Weight loss is hard because even eating less and exercising more may not help you reach and maintain your weight goals. Many factors influence your weight, including age, genetics, sex, and medical history.

Additionally, when you limit your calorie intake, your body goes into survival mode, releasing hormones that trigger your appetite and slow your metabolism (the system that burns calories).

Feeling more hungry and having a slower metabolism make it hard to stick with the reduced-calorie diet you need to drop those unwanted pounds.

Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center understands the struggle to lose weight and offers the weight loss injection semaglutide to help you reach your goals.

How does semaglutide help with weight loss?

Semaglutide helps you lose weight by keeping your appetite under control. The drug mimics a hormone that interacts with the part of the brain that suppresses appetite. It also slows digestion in the stomach so you feel full faster and stay full longer.

Who can use semaglutide for weight loss?

Your provider at Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center conducts a thorough evaluation when you come in for a weight loss consultation to determine if you can benefit from this weight loss injection.

Semaglutide is FDA-approved to treat people with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, or a BMI of 27 or higher and at least one weight-related health problem such as diabetes or heart disease.

When using semaglutide for weight loss, you must follow a reduced-calorie diet and an exercise program to get results. Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center doesn’t provide nutritional counseling but can make referrals.

Though results vary, you can lose up to 15% of your weight during the first 17 months of use. The team at Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center may suggest continuing the medication to maintain your weight loss.

Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center also provides other nonsurgical approaches to weight loss.
