CONTRIBUTED CONTENT — For many people, achieving the body they want can be a lifelong struggle. They try diets, exercise plans and all kinds of products, but the results often fall short of expectations. That’s where Belle Medical comes in.
Belle Medical is dedicated to empowering clients to love their bodies and live happier, healthier lives by using proven solutions that are guaranteed to work. If you’ve been trying to shed unwanted body fat by spending hours in the gym or going on heavily restrictive diets, yet you’re still not seeing the results you want, semaglutide injections are the key to successful weight loss.
“99% of our patients can find success,” chief marketing officer McKay Taylor said. “We’re actually able to guarantee weight loss if they can work with us.”
Losing weight with semaglutide
With semaglutide, the body and brain feel fuller faster, helping prevent overeating. Semaglutide does this by targeting an area of the brain called the GLP-1 receptors to reduce appetite. You can further encourage weight loss by choosing to eat smaller portions.
Semaglutide’s efficacy as a weight loss tool is further amplified by its ability to improve insulin resistance. By controlling blood sugar spikes and lowering blood sugar, the body’s energy levels remain more consistent. Higher insulin sensitivity also allows for fat to actually be used as fuel rather than stored as unwanted weight gain.
“Insulin resistance and excessively high insulin levels have historically made it seemingly impossible to lose weight,” Taylor said. “This drug’s ability to suppress insulin secretion and actually utilize fat for energy allows for true weight loss in individuals who could almost never achieve that result prior.”
Semaglutide is most beneficial for clients who also practice healthy eating habits and lifestyle modifications to promote weight loss, including increased physical activity. Make time to exercise every day, whether it’s taking a walk outside on your lunch break or going to the gym before or after work.
Keeping the weight off
Semaglutide doesn’t have to be a long-term commitment, Taylor said. Everyone’s bodies, goals and needs are different, so you’re welcome to try it out and see how it works.
However, to guarantee lasting success, Belle Medical recommends that clients keep using semaglutide long enough for their leptin levels to reset. Leptin is a hormone released by the body to help maintain normal weight and regulate the balance between food intake and energy use, and researchers have identified leptin resistance as one of the main biological contributors to obesity.
You can also stay on a small dose of semaglutide to aid in reducing food cravings and controlling overall appetite. If you do decide to stop using semaglutide altogether, stick to eating smaller portions to help maintain your results.
Avoiding side effects
Nausea is the most common side effect of semaglutide, and most users experience nausea within the first 24-48 hours after the injection. Schedule your injection day based on the activities and obligations that you have going on throughout the week.
Taking the injection in the evening may help by allowing you to sleep through some of that nausea. Avoid eating high-fat foods, especially in the days surrounding your injection. If needed, you can take Zofran or another anti-nausea medication. Belle Medical can provide a prescription.
A clinical trial on semaglutide’s impact on weight loss suggested that increasing your dietary protein intake may help prevent muscle loss, another potential side effect. Drink plenty of water and make sure you’re getting enough proteins, vitamins and other critical nutrients your body needs to fuel activity. Additionally, resistance exercises are crucial for maintaining and building muscle mass during weight loss treatments.
Belle Medical makes semaglutide affordable
Name-brand drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy are prohibitively expensive for many people seeking to lose weight. They also require multiple doctor’s visits and tedious insurance forms.
Belle Medical offers semaglutide for only $333 per month, and clients aren’t required to have insurance. Belle Medical also doesn’t charge any startup or membership fees.
Another benefit of reduced appetite is spending less money on food, whether that’s buying groceries or going out to eat.
“The drug itself changes your relationship with food,” Taylor said. “People start to realize that they can eat smaller portions and still feel satisfied. It’s not necessarily that they don’t want to eat as much, it’s that they don’t need to, which is amazing.”
More than a typical med spa, Belle Medical partners with clients to achieve wellness both inside and out through affordable, scientifically backed solutions offering proven results. At the heart of Belle Medical’s mission is the belief that everyone deserves the opportunity to feel good about their bodies.
“The Belle Medical experience is all about creating the best version of yourself,” Taylor said. “We want people to feel confident with who they are.”
