Weight Loss Injections in Memphis

Tips for Feeling Your Best on Semaglutide

Many people use weight loss injections in Memphis without understanding the effect they will have on their bodies. At A Beautiful You Medical Spa, we have found it’s best to do a bit of prep work before starting semaglutide. The following tips can help you get the most out of your treatment and help your body adjust to the medication. 

1. Drink water

Drinking enough water is one of the easiest and best ways to take care of your body. While taking semaglutide, you should be drinking more water than usual to account for the medication. We recommend drinking at least 8 cups of water a day.

2. Exercise consistently

Consistent exercise is instrumental to losing weight while on semaglutide. Simply eating less will not help you burn off the extra weight you already have. To maintain a healthy weight, the CDC recommends exercising for a total of 150 minutes a week, or for 30 minutes 5 days a week. To actively lose weight and not just maintain the weight you have, you will need to commit to more rigorous exercise. 

At A Beautiful You Medical Spa, we recommend an hour of moderate exercise 3 to 4 times a week to lose weight on semaglutide. This could look like an hour-long walk, a short hike, or a bike ride. You could also opt for more rigorous physical activity, such as swimming or jogging. 

The most important thing about exercising while taking weight loss injections in Memphis is to keep it consistent. Building strong exercise habits will not only help you lose weight while on semaglutide, but will also help you maintain your weight after your treatment.

3. Eat foods that are easy to digest

Because semaglutide targets your digestive system, it can cause related side effects, especially in the first couple of weeks as your body gets used to the medication. To help your digestive system adjust to semaglutide, stick to foods that are easy to digest. 

Simple carbs like rice, bread, and legumes are good options. If you remember the BRAT diet from when you were sick as a kid (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast), this can also help settle your stomach. Just make sure you are also getting the necessary vitamins found in fruits and vegetables.
