Is Ozempic truly a weight loss miracle?

March 8, 2023

Is Ozemplic actually a miraculous cure for overweight and obesity? If you’re like most of us, you’ve seen many advertisements for supposedly magic weight loss miracles. Unfortunately, there is no such thing. Ozempic is the next best thing, a medication that cuts down on hunger, so that cutting down on food intake is easier. Weight loss with Ozempic is still a matter of using up more calories than you take in. 

Along with your weekly injections, you will need a plan for cutting calories and staying active to help burn them. For most people, taking in 1000 calories per day results in the loss of about 2 pounds per week. This is a nice, steady, slow weight loss to keep you from gaining it back. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that adults get 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity physical activity. An example might be walking briskly for a half hour a day, 5 days per week. The CDC goes on to recommend some muscle-strengthening activity 2 days per week. The best activity is the kind you like and will do, so consider some fun activities such as ballroom dancing, belly dancing, walking your dog through the park (or someone else’s dog), swimming, or playing tag with the kids. It’s all a matter of taking up healthier habits.
