Ozempic, with the active substance semaglutide, is mainly used in diabetic patients as an addition to an already adapted diet and exercise lifestyle.
Semaglutide falls under the GLP-1 receptor agonist group.
This increases the amount of insulin the pancreas releases in response to food.
In this way an aid in regulating your blood sugar level.
What does this mean for you? Ozempic is 94% equal to your saturation hormone.
Ozempic will therefore ensure that you feel full faster and longer and will therefore eat less in portions and frequency.
Consequence? You lose weight.
GLP-1 receptor agonists are therefore also known for their appetite suppressing effect and are therefore currently also used in the treatment of obesity.
Diarrhea and nausea occur in 1 in 10 users , but also stomach upset and constipation
There is still a lot of uncertainty about the effect of Ozempic without lifestyle changes due to a lack of studies.
However, if we look at cases in practice, it can be cautiously concluded that there is no good result in the long term .
Studies that were done showed that good results are indeed achieved in the short term.
This often in combination with a drastic lifestyle change , with the result that this can only be sustained in the short term .
At Strak Plan we are convinced that a healthy lifestyle, including a healthy weight, is a matter of a lifestyle that is easy to apply.
Easy to apply equals a lifestyle that lasts in the long run.
Quick fixes only result in weight gain + x number of kg in the long term.
Your body is not designed for crash diets
The more diets you do, the more difficult it becomes to get results.
Because your body is not destined to follow crash diets.
Severely malnourishing your body in the short term will cause your body to slow down certain processes – and your metabolism – in response to this energy shortage.
I would like to come back to the other syringes that we have come to know over the years.
This one to tackle the corona pandemic.
This pandemic showed that people with an unhealthy lifestyle, obesity and / or heart disease were a bigger bird for the (corona) cat.
The consequences of obesity on health can no longer be denied.
The long-term consequence therefore sustains the diet industry.
We regain the full amount of lost kilos, with even a few extra, because the body is disorganized.
And then there is the moral aspect
Putting on a shot to feel less guilty for that oversized coupe dame blanche; I hope I don’t have to explain this further.
We would therefore like to emphasize once again that nutritional guidance is highly recommended for the best long-term results.
A lifestyle change, without medication / to prevent the need for medication in the long term. That is, of course, what we would rather see.
So let yourself be guided towards a healthy life in the long term and don’t get caught up in the pretty pictures and talk of quick fixes .
Especially with the new year in sight.
The diet industry is on edge these days to ‘help’ you with your good intentions.
Because every year there are thousands of people who are misled anyway.
We therefore hope that you will not be misled this year.
