A recent survey, commissioned by Nutrisystem, found that 95% of Americans have tried to lose weight in the past 5 years, but nearly half of those people ended up gaining 20+ pounds over that same time span, and 1 in 4 people contributed their weight gain to hunger. That’s all well and good, but what does it mean? 

It means that, while a strong majority of us understand the importance of losing weight and are making an honest effort to shed unwanted pounds, most of us aren’t seeing the results we expected. In other words, most of us are on the right track, but seem to be going in the wrong direction – which is completely okay!

At Nü Forma, we understand how stressful your weight loss journey can be – that’s why we’re dedicated to taking some of that weight off your shoulders and giving you the peace of mind to start achieving some serious weight loss goals. How are we going to do that? With your new BFF, whose name is Semaglutide!

The Semaglutide Miracle Is in Full Effect – Here’s How It Works!

You might’ve heard of Semaglutide before – it’s all over social media and is starting to raise eyebrows. Semaglutide is one of the hottest weight loss trends on the market, but don’t let that word fool you – it’s more than just a trend… it’s a game-changer, and it’s revolutionizing the way we go about losing weight. 

So, what is Semaglutide, exactly?

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist – boy, that was a mouthful! What that means is that it mimics the GLP-1 hormone, which is secreted in the small intestine – it’s one of the hormones your body releases while you eat, and it’s through this hormone that Semaglutide performs its real-life miracle!

DID YOU KNOW? Semaglutide is 94% similar to the GLP-1 hormone produced naturally by the body!

The most popular way to take Semaglutide for weight loss is by injecting it subcutaneously – underneath the skin, usually in the stomach, thighs, or arm. Once it enters the bloodstream, it travels throughout the body and interacts with several organs – including the pancreas, GI tract, heart, brain, liver, and more! 

In terms of weight loss, Semaglutide works in two primary ways – by stimulating insulin production and improving appetite control. Don’t worry – we’re going to take a closer look at each benefit below!

Sugar to Spice: Semaglutide, Insulin Production, and Blood Sugar

We’ve all heard of the three macros – carbs, protein, and fat – but let’s zero in on carbs for a second. If you didn’t already know, carbs are the body’s primary energy source. Our body breaks carbs down into glucose (sugar), which travels through the bloodstream and into cells, where it’s converted into energy. 

That’s where insulin comes in. The body releases insulin when blood sugar levels rise. Its primary goal is to guide sugar into cells, where it is then converted into energy. If it weren’t for insulin, the sugar in our blood wouldn’t get used and would, instead, build up in the bloodstream – wreaking havoc on the body.

So, what does this have to do with Semaglutide? 

Semaglutide interacts with the pancreas, where insulin is both produced and released. By mimicking the GLP-1 hormone, Semaglutide increases insulin production and improves insulin sensitivity – not just more insulin, but more effective insulin too. Your blood sugar levels decrease, and your energy levels increase!

NÜ FORMA TIP: All this extra energy will give you the motivation and willpower to maintain a regular exercise routine – allowing you to burn more calories, burn more fat, and shed more pounds! 

If that’s not enough, Semaglutide comes equipped with bonus gifts. Not only does it help the body use up all that sugar in our system, but it promotes fat oxidation – meaning it encourages the body to break down stored fat for energy. Less blood sugar, less stored fat, more energy – what doesn’t Semaglutide do?

Cravings to Control: Semaglutide, Appetite Control, and Cravings

Alright, let’s talk about those cravings – you know, the thing that keeps you wanting more of the things you generally don’t need. Overcoming hunger is one of the greatest challenges people face when losing weight, but Semaglutide makes it a thing of the past – in more ways than one! Don’t worry – we’ll explain!

For starters, Semaglutide acts on the GI tract by slowing down gastric motility – food moves through the body at a much slower rate, which translates to you feeling fuller longer. It also acts on the hypothalamus in the brain by suppressing appetite, altering the food-reward system, and changing taste preferences. 

So, what can Semaglutide do for you? Well, let’s recap what we learned. It increases insulin production. It improves insulin sensitivity. It promotes fat oxidation. It increases energy levels. It lowers blood sugar levels. It suppresses appetite. It slows down gastric motility. It changes taste preferences. It does a lot!
