TWR 210: Ozempic Uncovered: The Fine Print of Weight Loss Drugs

You have probably already heard the hype surrounding Ozempic, a diabetes medication that’s making waves in the weight loss community. But before you jump on the bandwagon, let Amber walk you through the drug’s intricacies and potential risks. Known to imitate a hormone that reduces our appetite and slows down our stomach’s activity, Ozempic is often used off-label for fast weight loss. However, the quick results might not be what they seem, and it’s vital to make informed decisions about your health.

What happens when you stop using a weight-loss drug like Ozempic? Our bodies undergo metabolic adaptation, a process that naturally slows down our metabolism when we lose weight. So, when the artificial appetite control is gone, your cravings return, but your metabolism continues to burn calories at a slower rate, leading to weight gain. To counter this effect, some resort to drastic calorie cuts, which can harm their health. Instead, Amber encourages long-term, sustainable weight loss solutions that avoid such pitfalls. Tune in for a session filled with enlightening insights and practical advice.
