GLP-1s For Weight Loss

GLP-1 medications (glucagon-like peptide 1s) are one of the most effective drug classes on the market for long-term weight loss.

Research has shown that patients using GLP-1s can lose between 15% and 20% of their body weight.

GLP-1s may be new to you, but we know them well. We’ve been around since 2014.  In that time, we have helped over 50,000 people change their lives through medical weight loss. You can be next!

How GLP-1 Medications Work

GLP-1 medications simulate the natural hormone produced in the intestines that helps people feel full after they eat. It also stimulates insulin secretion (allowing cells to take up glucose) and inhibits glucagon secretion (preventing more glucose from being released into the bloodstream) lowering blood sugar levels.

GLP-1s also increase satiety (how full you feel) after eating, which helps contribute to its weight loss properties. There’s also evidence that they contribute to weight loss by lowering the body’s natural “set point” for weight. GLP-1 medications are most effective when combined with the Options Diet System and daily activity. Weight reduction helped by GLP-1 medications are approaching the rates of long-term success observed after bariatric surgery.

What Medications Simulate GLP-1?

There are several popular medications promoted today that simulate GLP-1, including Semaglutide, Wegovy®, Ozempic®, Rybelsus®, Saxenda®, Victoza®, Trulicity®, Zepboundand Mounjaro® (Tirzepatide). Semaglutide is the same active ingredient in FDA-approved Wegovy, and Ozempic.
