A healthier, happier future is possible with semaglutide, now available at Belle Medical. Administered via weekly self-injection, semaglutide represents an exciting breakthrough in weight loss. In fact, the clinic guarantees success for 99% of patients.

“It helps you change your eating habits, and it helps your body tell you when it’s actually hungry instead of just eating as an activity,” Belle Medical president Wendy Edmunds said. “It’s a fantastic tool for successful weight loss.”

Semaglutide helps people of virtually every age, size and lifestyle lose weight by reducing appetite and food cravings. It also improves insulin resistance, which accelerates the body’s usage of fat for energy rather than storing it as unwanted pounds.

Do I need insurance?

Name-brand drugs like Ozempic or Wegovy are prohibitively expensive for most people and require multiple doctor’s visits plus tedious insurance forms. Belle Medical offers semaglutide for as low as $333 per month, with no insurance required.

Unlike many weight loss providers, Belle Medical doesn’t have startup fees or membership requirements. Month-to-month pricing means that semaglutide doesn’t have to be a long-term commitment. 

How can I avoid nausea?

If you’re experiencing nausea, the most common side effect of semaglutide, try administering your injection in the evening so you can sleep through most of it. Stay away from high-fat foods, especially right before or right after taking semaglutide.

Consider your schedule and what activities or obligations you have throughout the week when choosing an injection day. Everyone’s different, but most patients only report nausea during the first 24-48 hours after their injections. Belle Medical can also provide prescriptions for anti-nausea medications like Zofran if needed.

Should I change my eating habits?

Make sure to eat smaller portions while taking semaglutide. The drug helps you feel fuller faster, so it’s crucial to listen to your body and avoid overeating. 

Semaglutide works best for clients who combine it with diet and lifestyle improvements, including frequent exercise. Try to be active every day, whether you take a walk outside or hit the gym. Drink plenty of water and eat foods high in protein and vitamins.

How quickly will I lose weight?

Most clients notice results as soon as the first few weeks, Edmunds said. However, Belle Medical recommends taking semaglutide for at least three months to allow the body to reset and prepare for lasting change. 

After finishing your semaglutide journey, it’s essential to continue being active and eating healthy, particularly small portions, to maintain the results. You can also choose to stay on a small dose of semaglutide to help keep cravings under control.
