Weight Loss with Semaglutide at The Natural Path

Semaglutide for Weight lossI  began my journey with the HCG DIET and  SEMAGLUTIDE in April of 2022. Like most peri-menopausal women, I had tried what felt like everything in my power to lose the extra 38 lbs that I had been carrying around with me for the past 4 years. It was so uncomfortable and in the back of my mind 24/7 … I thought about it. It simply did not feel good. I began with the HCG DIET protocol with Dr. Cara for 4 weeks to get a “jump start.” I was so a bit nervous about being able to do it. However, with Dr. Cara’s guidance, support and well-research plan it was actually pretty easy. I never felt hungry and there were so many food options. In fact, two of my “go-to” meals that I love came from my time on the HCG DIET protocol. I lost 16 lbs in the first month and it really felt good. Beyond the scale, inflammation had left my body. Bloating was gone. Joint pain was gone. Fatigue was gone. It was a journey of really realizing how much food impacts the way we feel everyday.

The HCG DIET to SEMAGLUTIDE for Weight Loss

After 4 weeks on the HCG DIET, I had some travelling to do for work and was going to be in Europe for almost 3 weeks. Dr. Cara suggested Semaglutide during that time. The recommended food plan was easy to follow and other than needing to leave out the bread and pasta in Europe – it was really easy to stick with. Occasionally, I would have bites of different things for the experience and that was really all I wanted and needed anyway. I had joined some forums of other people on Semaglutide for weight loss and had some concerns about potential side effects. Luckily, I did not have any side effects at all. The first week, I lost about 1 lb which was a lot slower than with he HCG DIET. Dr. Cara did tell me that Semaglutide weight loss was slower and the appetite reducing impact took some time to appear for some people. After that HCG DIET, my appetite felt regulated and cravings were gone. This made following the food plan super easy. 4 weeks into Semaglutide, I was down another 7 lbs – 23 lbs down and feeling better than ever. I began running again and riding a bike while I was on business in Amsterdam.

The Effect of Semaglutide on Weight Loss

When I got back to the states, I met with Dr. Cara and we increased my dose of Semaglutide. THEN, I really began to notice the appetite reducing effects.  I would feel hungry-ish, however, when I had a few bites to eat, the fullness set in quite quickly. One more month and another 7.5 lbs. I was over 30 lbs down now and people were finally noticing. It felt so great to receive compliments. It felt so great to fit into my “skinny clothes” that I had boxed up a few years ago. It felt so great to be in control.

Dr. Cara is really special. She is warm, kind, supportive and incredibly knowledgeable. She researches things inside and out and shares so much information about her patients. Her goal is to help you lose weight but even more so to keep it off. The information she shared with me was so eye opening and made a lot of sense. I would say that working with her has been life-changing for me. I feel more confident at 51 than I ever have. I have 10 more lbs to go but that will be icing on the cake.
