What is the Semaglutide Diet Program?
Semaglutide Diet Program is the new FDA Approved, ‘Game Changing’ product for Weight Loss! It’s a once-a-week weight loss shot backed by scientific results. The semaglutide Diet Program requires NO low-calorie diets or special foods however, you are encouraged to eat a healthy diet, lead an active lifestyle, and limit or omit simple carbs.
What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is an injectable weight loss peptide that works on the appetite receptors in the brain to reduce feelings of hunger and cravings. The injection imitates GLP1 – a naturally occurring hormone in your body – which is released after you eat and indicates to your brain that you are full. These peptides also work to slow the emptying of your stomach, which leads to feelings of fullness for longer after you have eaten. The effects last for as long as you continue the injections on a maintenance dose.
Scientific Results of Semaglutide:
Scientific results of Semaglutide are from four big clinical trials of this peptide that were presented to FDA for approval, including a seminal paper published in New England Journal which treated about 1,961 participants. The average weight loss is 15% body-weight, achieved by 50% of the people. That is double the results achieved with the best behavioral treatment, and it’s about double what you get with most weight loss drugs.
Another study of almost 2,000 people published in February 2021 has shown that this new, once-a-week weight loss injection can help patients with obesity significantly reduce their body weight and improve their health alongside a healthy, balanced diet.
The study, undertaken by University College London, found that 32% of people who took Semaglutide were able to reduce their overall body weight by 20%, in just 15 months when accompanied by a healthy, balanced diet.

The Semaglutide Diet Program is offered in two programs. The Starter Program is intended to help the body and system adjust to the medication (“titrate”) to help reduce the intensity of the side effects. If you are just beginning with Semaglutide it is highly recommended that you begin here:
- Starter Program (.25mg Semaglutide per week): Inject .05 ml (5 on the syringe) ONCE per week for 2 weeks. Increase to 0.5 mg per week (0.10ml per week for 3 weeks. Increase to 1mg per week for 3 weeks. 0.20ml weekly for 3 weeks. If you are just starting your program, one 5mg vial will provide 8 weeks of injections (2 doses at 0.05ml, 3 doses at 0.10ml, then 3 doses at 0.20ml)
- Maintenance Program (1mg Semaglutide per week): (1mg Semaglutide per week): Inject 0.20ml (20 on the syringe) ONCE per week. On Maintenance dosing, each 5mg vial contains a five-week supply of Semaglutide at the maintenance dose of 0.20ml. (Some dieters have found great success on the weekly .5mg starting dose and have no desire to increase the dosage to 1mg or higher. Others have requested a higher potency/strength dosage to help their bodies respond better if their weight loss in the first month was less than 8lbs. Adjust your dose as needed. If well tolerated, you may increase your dosage all the way up to 2.5mg weekly.
