NEW Game-Changing Weight-Loss Drug SEMAGLUTIDE

Obesity is a serious disease and there are lots of myths around it. It's not all about lack of will power, or inability to count calories, not all about counting MACROS... it involves a lot more, our friend the BRAIN.Why the brain? GLP-1 and GIP are two of many hormones that affect apetite.  These are created in the small intestine which messages the brain.  Are we full, how full, cravings, etc.  When we learn to recognize the role our brain plays in our diet, and educate ourselves more on our bodies, we can achienve true weight loss.  

So how do we go about getting a good communication between our gut and the brain?  Is there such thing as a "kick start"?  Yes there is!  Semaglutide is a new revolutionary weight loss drug exist that signal the pancreas to release insulin to pick up the glucose that is being eaten.  Then the drug's job is to slow gastric emptying and making you feel fuller.  FInally, it hits the part of the brain that makes you feel fuller sooner therefore eating less.

What to watch out for:

If you stop this medication and have not changed your habits to healthier ones, studies showed that people gained their weight back.  Also you have to clear certain medical requirements since any drug (s) can always have side-effects.  In rats, thyroid cancer showed increased, GI symptoms can be exacerbated such as nausea and vomiting.  Gallstones have been reported in about 3% of the poepole taking semaglutide.  Also... these are fairly new drugs and there are no long term studies yet, so the future is unknown.
