How It Works: Things you need to know before starting your weight loss journey!

About 70% of Americans are currently overweight - with one-third of those being obese! On June 4, 2021 FDA approval was granted for the first new class of weight-loss medications, Semaglutide or GLP-1. This new medication has shown great results for chronic weight management in adults with obesity or overweight with at least one weight-related condition (such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol), for use in addition to a reduced calorie diet and increased physical activity.

It's not your fault you didn't keep the weight off!

You've tried them all. Diet plan after diet plan, but nothing seems to work. You feel like you're just wasting money. 


Excess weight is largely a result of eating habits. With busy lifestyles, everyday stress, and our modern food supply; not to mention hormones and genetics, it seems we are set up to fail.

There's Hope on the Horizon.

This under-the-skin injection and sub-lingual medication is the first approved drug for chronic weight management in adults with general obesity or overweight.

It helps control appetite and cravings, setting you up for success. Benefits vary, but you may experience weight loss, improved fertility, smoking cessation, cardiovascular benefits, and neuroprotective treatment of PCOS.

How does it work?

Every time we eat, a specific hormone is automatically released in our body that gives us a feeling of fullness. The medicine targets the brain and mimics that full feeling, plus reduces appetite, slows stomach emptying, and ultimately decreases your caloric intake.


Your body also has a "set point" which is the number on the scale your weight normally hovers around. The treatment plan creates a new, lower set point after you lose your weight goal amount.

How soon will I lose weight?

There is no set time for you to begin seeing results because people respond to medicine differently. Ask your health care provider about what a realistic expectation is for you.

Can I travel with my medication?

For Sure!  When traveling by air it is recommended to carry your medication in your carry-on as it may freeze in the baggage compartment below the plane.  Check with your airline to see if they have any specific baggage rules. For other travel, try to keep the unused medication refrigerated, but it can be kept at room temperature for over a month.  Having your medication not refrigerated while you travel will not alter, damage, or make the medication less effective.

Can I take my medicine any time of day?

Yes, it's recommended that you take it on the same day every week at the most convenient time for you.

Can I change the day I take it?

You can change the day of the week you take it as long as your last dose was given 2 or more days before.


Coverage for weight loss medications is not widely available. Checking with your insurance company is so important to see if you are covered and understand the cost at hand. Our medicine comes with no monthly membership fees, no contracts, no annual fees, no hidden costs, not ever.


Employers decide on prescription benefits for their employees. Don't be discouraged if your company's plan doesn't include request for coverage with the help of your health care provider. We will provide you with a superbill that you can submit to your insurance company. 

If you work with the city, state or federal government, ask your benefits manager about coverage for obesity medications. You can also use your funds from an FSA or HSA to pay for treatment as well.

Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover medicines for obesity. There may be some select Medigap and Medicare Advantage plans for retirees that do offer coverage. If you have one of these plans, please check with its administrator.
