In This Episode:

In this podcast, I go over the truth about popular weight loss drugs such as Ozempic, semaglutide and Wegovy. Do these drugs work and what are the potential side effects and is it possible to get similar results without them?

Ozempic has been all over the news for now. Doctors recommend it for type 2 diabetes. Non-diabetics are using it for weight loss. Celebrities are showing off their impressive weight loss results — from Ozempic, not a healthy diet and lifestyle.

  • What is semaglutide?
  • What is Wegovy and Rybelsus?
  • What do glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) drugs actually do? 
  • Understanding Advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) 
  • How weight loss drugs increase satiety (leading to weight loss)
  • What are the most common side effects?
  • Understanding the potential of more damaging (rarer) side effects
  • How can we improve our satiety level naturally? 
  • Getting 30g of protein to increase your satiety.
  • Why a high protein, high healthy fat diet is the way to go

Are these new weight loss drugs that are on the market (and seem to be taking the world by storm) all that good for you? 

A lot of celebrities and social media influencers are sharing their amazing results after taking weight loos drugs (like Ozempic). This got Dr. Jockers intrigued to learn more. And he’s here today to share his findings!

How do these miracle weight loss drugs actually work? Dr. Jockers goes into the physiology as well as the side effects. Learn about how semaglutide medication can give you nausea and other digestive symptoms. 

If you’re taking this medication long-term, there are other side effects you seriously need to consider too! Make the best-informed decision possible by learning from the best functional nutrionist around as Dr. Jockers proves a balanced view on semaglutide medications. 

Please join us and please also share this information with someone you think may need it. Thank you.
