Weight Fluctuations

Do you feel like you are doing all the right things for weight loss, but your weight goes up, down and all around?!

The reality is, some people can have large weight fluctuations on a day-to-day basis.

So what is going on?

From Ozempic to Mounjaro

With Ozempic in high demand and little to none to go around, and Mounjaro entering the market here in Canada, some or many of you may be considering switching from one to the other. 

Watch This Before Taking Mounjaro

Mounjaro is a GLP-1 / GIP Receptor Agonist – that means it mimics the actions of your body’s naturally produced GLP-1 and GIP hormones.

When these two are used together they seem to have a synergistic effect that makes them better than a GLP-1 RA alone, such as Wegovy.

Watch this week’s video to learn more about Mounjaro.

How to Inject Ozempic

Many of the new Obesity and Diabetes medications coming to market are in the form of an injection.

So, with injections, are some sites better than others? Do we have to use the same injection site all the time? Is there a right way and a wrong way to take these medications?

Ozempic Alternatives

Ozempic and many of the other GLP-1 medications are or are becoming unavailable.

What was primarily a problem for the US of A is now becoming an issue across the globe – here in Canada, it is reaching a new level.

Our supply of Ozempic is dwindling – a new update from Novo Nordisk, the makers of Ozempic, has stated that the shortage will likely last until early 2024.

So, what options do we have available? Are there any at all?

Ozempic: Stomach Paralysis Update

In August, I posted a vlog about Ozempic and its potential to cause stomach paralysis.

A new study is comparing semaglutide (Ozempic), liraglutide (Saxenda) and bupropion-naltrexone (Contrave), and the side effects individuals may have experienced – including, gastroparesis / stomach paralysis!

Food Noise

Are your brain (and stomach) never satisfied? When you wake up, before/during/after a proper meal, you can’t stop thinking about food.

Ozempic: Max Weight Loss?

How much weight can you REALLY lose on a semaglutide like Ozempic or Wegovy?
Like, really really? Is there a guaranteed number?

Is a medication all you need for weight loss?

Weight Loss Plateau with Ozempic

Did you know that plateaus are a natural part of the weight loss journey? I know what you’re asking – WHY!!?!

The ebb and flow of weight loss can be an absolute gong show of emotions, but consistency is key.

Ozempic’s Worst Side Effects

What’s the worst side effect you’ve experienced from weight loss medication? Nausea, diarrhea, hair loss…
I promise you, the side effects I’m discussing in this vlog have the “typical” ones beat, hands down!…
