Understanding Semaglutide, aka the “Hollywood Diet,” and its Weight-Loss Benefits

Looking down at two bare feet that are standing on a scale.

Semaglutide is a weekly injection that has proven very effective when it comes to weight loss, as well as chronic weight and diabetes management, because of its ability to neurologically suppress your appetite. 

Semaglutide is safe, effective, and was approved for weight management by the FDA in 2021. 

While results vary from patient to patient, it is possible to lose up to 20 pounds in only two months and even as much as 50+ pounds in 4 months. 

Additional benefits of semaglutide include:

  • Decreased caloric intake due to reduced appetite
  • Increased satiety or feeling of fullness
  • Fewer cravings
  • Slower rate of digestion
  • Reduced percentage of body fat
  • Lowered weight and reduced waist circumference
  • Lowered incidence of cardiovascular concerns associated with type 2 diabetes and other cardiovascular conditions
  • Decreased blood sugar levels
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Fewer symptoms of inflammation
  • Enhanced quality of sleep
