The MD Diet program uses safe, FDA-approved weight loss medications as a part of our customized programs. These medications can improve your results and help end struggles such as cravings and excessive hunger at mealtime that you have experienced in the past when trying to lose weight.
Ozempic or Wegovy which are the brand names for the medication Semaglutide is a breakthrough medication that is helping people lose weight. It's Hollywood's new secret to getting in shape for movies and TV and the world's most famous celebrities have been using it to slim down. Ozempic (Semaglutide) was originally meant to help individuals manage type 2 diabetes, but has been found in studies to help reduce body weight by 15-20%. It does this by working on centers in the brain that makes us hungry and can supress appetite. When you're not hungry all the time it's so much easier to stick to a weight loss plan. Ask our providers if Ozempic is right for you.
