IT’S ABOUT BIOLOGY, NOT WILLPOWER
The search for effective and safe weight loss treatments seems never-ending. But it’s not always for a lack of trying. Your body doesn’t always want to shed weight, and it’s got all kinds of ways to hang on to it. Many things may affect your weight loss efforts because of the way they can affect your body including your metabolism, chronic stress, lack of sleep, medications, depression, and hormonal factors–biological mechanisms that make it hard to lose weight, and even harder to keep it off. For example; your fat cells make a hormone called leptin. It tells your brain when you have enough fat stored up. As you lose weight, less fat means less leptin. That makes you hungry. Plus your body slows things down to save energy. So once you quit a diet, you have an oversized appetite but burn fewer calories.
LIPOTROPIC INJECTIONS; DISSOLVING FAT IS WHERE IT’S AT
Ready to jumpstart your fat-burning abilities? Lipotropic injections or lipo shots are just the shot you need at losing all the weight you want. The primary benefit of lipotropic injections is that they can help further aid weight loss when combined with healthy dieting and regular exercise. Lipo shots tell your body to burn fat for fuel rather than breaking down muscles, which preserves lean body mass. By reducing your existing fat stores, lipotropic injections prevent new calorie intake from being converted into fat. They also distribute cholesterol and fat from getting too saturated in any one body part. You’ll look much more trim when your body fat is evenly distributed. Lipo shots also boost your metabolism and increase your energy. The good stuff keeps going…they remove cellular debris and toxins and even improve liver and kidney function. You can lose two to four pounds a week with lipo shots, but you can bump that up with help from Thrive Health Solutions’s other weight loss tools.
SEMAGLUTIDE; OFF THE CHARTS WHEN IT COMES TO WEIGHT LOSS
Initially a diabetes medication, semaglutide was approved by the FDA for general weight loss in 2021. You might know it as Ozempic or Wegovy which are just expensive brand names for the active ingredient semaglutide. Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. Semaglutide increases insulin secretion while slowing down how fast your stomach empties food, which makes you feel full longer. Clinical trials have shown that adults taking semaglutide lost an average of almost 15% of their initial body weight—about 12% more than those that didn’t take the medication.
TIRZEPATIDE; TWO, TWO AMAZING WHEN IT COMES TO LOSING WEIGHT
You probably know it as Mounjaro, once again just an expensive brand name for the real thing; tirzepatide. Tirzepatide has a dual-action design, mimicking the action of not one, but two incretin hormones involved in blood sugar control: glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP). This unique dual action makes it the first-in-class medicine that acts on both of these receptors. Incretin hormones are released whenever food is consumed. Among other things, they help promote a feeling of fullness by delaying gastric emptying and activating the brain’s satiety centers, helping decrease food intake and increase energy. It even causes individuals to eat less carbs and fatty foods. Bottom line? Adults taking tirzepatide had an average weight loss of more than 23% of their starting weight. That’s so remarkable we’re going to repeat that; adults taking tirzepatide had an average weight loss of more than 23% of starting weight.
