Learn Why Everyone Is Raving About Weight Loss With Ozempic

If you’re struggling to lose excess weight, you’re far from alone. A survey involving thousands of Americans showed that 95% attempted weight loss within the past five years, and over 40% struggled so much to do so that they ended up gaining over 20 pounds instead.

A range of factors can make weight control difficult, and our team is here to help. Our expert providers at Next Direct Primary Care offer support and customized plans to help you reach and maintain a healthy weight. We also prescribe Ozempic® for good candidates.

Let’s delve deeper into weight loss concerns, including how this weight loss medication can help turn your challenges around.

What makes weight loss challenging

Eating a lighter diet and exercising more may sound easy, but that’s far from the case for most people. For one thing, your body is designed to store excess fat. And it holds on to it even tighter when you restrict food in an attempt to lose weight — a means of protecting you from starvation. 

On top of that, you may be genetically predisposed to weight challenges or have a medical condition, such as thyroid disease or depression, that makes weight gain easy and weight loss tough. 

Other factors that interfere with weight loss include a lack of access to healthy food, an inability to exercise regularly, and long-standing habits that are difficult to change.

How Ozempic enhances weight loss

While there is no magic pill that does away with excess pounds on its own, Ozempic may make the process easier. This prescription medication boosts your metabolism, allowing you to burn calories more efficiently. 

It also curbs your appetite, which staves off overeating and helps you feel less deprived. 

Meant to enhance an overall healthy lifestyle plan, one that emphasizes nutritious foods and appropriate exercise, Ozempic may help keep you motivated to stay on track as your results come easier.

Ozempic results

When taken once a week as directed, Ozempic has been shown to enhance weight loss and improve blood sugar levels in adults with Type 2 diabetes. 


The latter is important for anyone who’s overweight, given that excess pounds raise your risk for the disease. One study showed that people with Type 2 diabetes lost up to 15% of their body weight over the course of nearly six years.

As you move toward a healthier weight, you also reap the benefits of improved heart health and a reduced risk of heart disease and stroke. A healthy weight is also linked with a reduced risk for certain cancers, gallstones, osteoarthritis, and sleep apnea.
