“Semaglutide can be used for as long as it remains beneficial for weight loss”

“Semaglutide helped people drop an average of 15% of their body weight”

*The above statements reference Semaglutide studies


You asked,
we answered:

Semaglutide is a naturally occurring peptide generated in the small intestine of our bodies. Now, without getting too science-y, it acts as a GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1), a hormone that is released by our bodies in response to eating.

Now, let’s break it down in simpler terms:


Semaglutide helps your pancreas to release the right amount of insulin when blood sugar levels are high, a key factor in regulating your appetite and how much you eat.

Aside from doing this, it slows down the emptying of your stomach, which is great news! Food stays in your stomach for a longer time. This can make you feel fuller for longer, reducing your appetite, which can help with weight management.

Semaglutide has been shown to decrease appetite, enhance eating control, diminish food cravings, and improve glycemic control.

Sometimes, even when you give it your best and maintain a healthy routine and engage in regular exercise, you can’t quite achieve the body of your dreams. Nutrition and stress being the primary culprits. It’s not your fault, it happens to the best of us. Life gets in the way at times. At metanoia we believe that science and effort can meet in the middle, speeding up the results you’ve been looking for.

The amount of weight loss achievable with semaglutide can vary from person to person. Keep in mind that weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint. At metanoia we aim for sustainable weight loss, which occurs at a healthy rate of 1-2 pounds per week or more.
Studies have shown that semaglutide can lead to significant weight loss. Participants lost an average of around 15% of their body weight over 68 weeks.

While semaglutide has shown efficacy in weight management, it also carries potential side effects.  Here are some potential risks:

Gastrointestinal Side Effects: The most commonly reported side effects of semaglutide include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. These side effects are usually mild and tend to decrease over time as the body adjusts to the medication.

Semaglutide has been shown to have positive effects on cardiovascular outcomes in clinical trials. However, it’s important to discuss any pre-existing cardiovascular conditions with a healthcare professional before starting semaglutide.

The outcomes of stopping semaglutide may differ from person to person. Much of the standard weight-loss advice is too vague to be useful. Ever heard “If you move more and eat less, you’ll lose weight.” Sure, but that’s a rather simple equation. Where it gets tricky is our modern lifestyle encourages us to do the total opposite.
Semaglutide is like training wheels. While it can be used for prolonged weight loss, our clients do best when they use it to kickstart it successfully. Once started, developing healthy habits becomes easier. It’s like riding a bike. Eventually you’ll find yourself not needing training wheels anymore.
At metanoia we believe that you should be in control of your body. And to achieve this, you should view weight management as a self-discovery journey. You can achieve anything your mind envisions, and we are here to help you with your longterm goals.

Research shows semaglutide resulted in a decrease of waist circumference among study participants. Semaglutide doesn’t target one area, it focuses on whole body weight-loss. It is worth mentioning that outcomes may differ depending on each person’s reaction. Your body chooses where to lose fat first. The extent of belly fat reduction may depend your baseline body composition and genetics.

Individual responses to semaglutide’s appetite-suppressing effects vary from person to person. Our clients have reported appetite suppression the day after starting Semaglutide.

We recommend that when you do feel hungry, you prioritize your protein intake to avoid any potential side effects. As with anything worth it in this life, the time it takes to see changes can vary, but don’t worry, we’ll be there to help.

Not everyone loses weight at the same rate. Our clients report significant weight loss early on in the treatment. That said, some experience more gradual progress. The good news is that everyone loses weight on it. On average, one can expect between 1 to 2 pounds of weight loss per week if you adhere to the protocol.
Be kind to yourself and your body as the rate of weight loss is more than simple nutrition. Individual factors like metabolism, diet, exercise, unmanaged stress levels, can affect the speed of your weight-loss journey.

The length of our protocol is designed according to your own goals. Once you reach your desired weight we recommend that you stay at a small maintenance dose. Some clients feel ready to stop Semaglutide after completing the protocol. In their experience the process has taught them to reframe their relationship with food and exercise.

The longest study available on Semaglutide is the STEP clinical study (Semaglutide Treatment Effect in People with Obesity). Semaglutide was administered over a 68-week period.

While using semaglutide, there is no need to avoid any specific foods solely because of the medication. However, it is crucial to focus on optimal nutrition to promote overall health and achieve your weight-loss goals. Some tips to live when you are on semaglutide are:

Make proteins a priority: Include lean protein sources like beef, poultry, and fish.

Limit sugary foods: Minimize the intake of sugary foods and beverages.

Reduce processed foods: Limit processed and highly refined foods.

Watch carbohydrate intake: Don’t avoid carbohydrates, but be mindful of your total carbohydrate consumption.

Control portion sizes: Be conscious of portion sizes to avoid overeating. Semaglutide will help with this as you will be eating smaller, balanced meals throughout the day.

Emphasize vegetables and fruits: Aim to include a variety of colorful vegetables and fruits in your diet, as they are rich in essential nutrients and fiber.

Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated and support overall health.
