Exploring the Best Weight Loss Options for Lasting Results: What Really Works?

In today's media landscape, the discourse around maintaining a healthy weight is pervasive, and it's no secret that the weight loss industry rakes in billions annually. So, why, then, do we still see a significant portion of the population struggling with excess weight? Let's delve into the underlying factors. 

 Firstly, human evolution has led us to a point where food is abundantly available, and our lifestyles have become increasingly sedentary. These two factors alone contribute substantially to the prevalence of overweight individuals. Moreover, issues such as food quality, hormone imbalances, and poor gut health further complicate matters. 

 So, how can we effectively tackle the challenge of weight loss? While there's no one-size-fits-all solution, it ultimately boils down to devising a personalized plan and sticking to it. This commitment is key to making significant progress toward your weight loss goals. Now, let's explore some of the most popular medical weight loss options and evaluate their suitability for you. One such option is phentermine, a stimulant medication

known for its appetite-suppressing effects. It's particularly beneficial for individuals looking to shed less than 20 pounds and who don't have any underlying heart conditions. Additionally, phentermine can offer the added perks of improved focus and increased energy levels, making it a favorable choice for younger patients.  

On the other hand, the latest medications to hit the market are GLP-1 agonists, such as semaglutide and tirzepitide. These medications, often administered weekly via injection, work by reducing appetite through the slowing of gastrointestinal motility. They are particularly effective for individuals aiming to lose over 15 pounds and are generally safer for older patients or those with preexisting medical conditions. On average, individuals using these medications experience a weight loss of around 15 percent of their total body weight. 

 At Olive Health, we offer a range of these weight loss solutions and will soon introduce oral semaglutide to our repertoire.

Moreover, unlike traditional weight loss clinics, we provide comprehensive primary care services, ensuring that all your healthcare needs are met under one roof.
