Mar 15, 2023

Semaglutide drugs have taken the weight-loss world by storm. Our community has been clamoring for my take on these medications. Are they really a weight-loss miracle or are they too good to be true? 

This week, I reveal the pros and cons of drugs like Wegovy, Ozempic, and tirzepatide (sold as Mounjaro) when it comes to weight loss. I also talk about their impact on long-term health, including the digestive system, addictive behaviors, insulin and glucagon production, long-term eating habits, thyroid health, cancer concerns, and long-term weight maintenance. Plus, I discuss cost and accessibility, including for those who are actually using it to treat diabetes.

And finally, how do these drugs compare to behavioral interventions like Noom, Weight Watchers, and Bright Line Eating? We’re taking a deep dive, so let’s jump in!
