Insulin Resistance and Weight Loss

What is exactly is insulin resistance?

Insulin resistance is when a person’s body tissues have a lowered level of response to insulin. The hormone insulin plays a major role in the body by regulating the level of glucose or sugar in the body.

If you are insulin resistant your cells cannot take in the glucose and as a result, the level of the glucose in the blood remains high.

Any excess insulin that is not used by the body gets stored as fat.

Insulin resistance can lead to diabetes if you don’t take action to fix the issue.

If you are insulin resistant, then you know how hard it can be to lose weight.

It can be extremely frustrating to literally put your blood, sweat, and tears into working out to get no results. Trust me, I know how you feel because I cried those tears too!

Well, it is time to wipe away those tears, because it is possible to lose weight!

One of the most effective tools in losing weight with insulin resistance is all about stabilizing your blood sugars. Semaglutide prescription medication helps to do just that.

Semaglutide is a new FDA approved, prescription only medication for weight loss. This is a game changer in the weight loss battlefield. Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. This helps to slow the digestive system, keeping you fuller longer as well as decreasing food cravings.

How much weight have people lost with semaglutide?

Adults on average lost 35 LBS (or 15% body weight) while taking semaglutide.

In a 68-week medical study of 1,961 adults living with obesity or excess weight with a related medical problem. People taking placebo lost an average of 6 lbs (or ~2.5% body weight) The average starting weight for both groups was ~232 lbs.

I would love to help you along your weight loss journey!
