Not only is it an appetite suppressant, it’s also a gateway to being in control of your eating habits!
Semaglutide (brand names: Ozempic or Wegovy) – mimics a natural peptide/hormone called GLP 1 Inhibitor by acting on receptor sites as though it is the (GLP1) hormone. Semaglutide (GLP1 inhibitor) optimizes the way the body utilizes insulin. When insulin goes awry, it is known to cause diabetes. When the body can’t access insulin, it will take your energy and store it as fat. GLP 1 is one of the hormones that minimizes that process so that we can utilize insulin more efficiently and your energy is less likely to be stored as fat. It also changes the way your stomach functions mechanically. When you eat food, it goes down the esophagus and then lands in your stomach. Your stomach then mechanically churns the food. Semaglutide acts on the receptor that causes the churning and slows it down so the food stays in your stomach longer, which suppresses your appetite, makes you feel satisfied longer, and therefore causes you to feel hungry less often. On top of this, it also changes the brain/gut connections. The action of eating food and feeling cravings is associated with your emotions. You eat when you’re happy, sad, excited, bored, etc. Because of strong emotions towards food, it changes the relationship you have with food. When you are less passionate about food cravings, your food urges and cravings slowly go away. It’s less about your eating being aligned with your emotions, and more about eating when you are physically hungry. It can feel liberating being able to control your eating habits if you are someone who struggles with emotional eating. Average weight loss is 35lbs.
