Tips on losing weight on GLP-1

GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) agonists are medications that can aid in weight loss by helping you feel fuller, reducing appetite, and slowing down digestion. Here are some tips for losing weight while using GLP-1 agonists:

1. Follow the guidance of your healthcare professional

Always consult your healthcare provider before starting or changing any weight loss regimen, especially when using medications.

2. Maintain a balanced diet

Focus on consuming whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. Minimize processed foods, sugary snacks, and high-fat meals.

3. Control portion sizes

Be mindful of portion sizes to manage calorie intake effectively. Using smaller plates and bowls can help with portion control.

4. Stay hydrated

Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Sometimes thirst can be mistaken for hunger.

5. Regular exercise

Incorporate both cardiovascular exercises (like walking, jogging, or cycling) and strength training into your routine to support weight loss and improve overall health.

6. Track your progress

Keep a food diary or use a mobile app to track your meals, exercise, and weight loss progress. This can help you stay accountable and identify areas for improvement.

7. Prioritize sleep

Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep per night. Poor sleep can disrupt hunger hormones and contribute to weight gain.

8. Manage stress

Practice stress-reducing techniques such as mindfulness, meditation, deep breathing exercises, or engaging in hobbies you enjoy.

9. Be patient and consistent

Weight loss takes time, so be patient with yourself and stay consistent with your healthy habits. Celebrate your progress along the way, no matter how small.
