Appetite Suppressants, Weight Loss Injections and Pills

Humans haven’t eaten only for nourishment anywhere in the world for more than a thousand years now, and that’s not going to change. Eating is pleasure too, although you will find some people in certain far reaches of the world that eat a diet that’s much closer to what human beings are supposed to eat. Here in North America, there are many who aren’t overweight but would still like to get down to a lower body weight for life enjoyment purposes, while still eating for both aims. Diabetes can make that difficult, and for diabetics an appetite suppressant like Saxenda may be a good choice.

This medication is also known as Victoza and was primarily designed to lower blood sugar levels for Type 2 diabetics, but it may be prescribed for people who need to lose weight. And it is a weight loss shot that is different from prescription weight loss pills because it is injected into your skin and then ideally paired with a low-calorie weight loss diet plan and increased physical exercise to lose weight faster. Saxenda works as an appetite suppressant by acting on gut hormones to quell food cravings and allow you to be satisfied with less. Some may need to overcome a fear of needles, but weight loss injections work.

Does sleeping well help with weight loss? It sure does, and that’s where there starts to be a positive connection here too. If you find you’re eating less because of the appetite suppressant and you’re getting active more often with your heartrate up into the ideal zone for fat burning, then you’ll probably be sleeping better too. That then means you likely have more pep in your step for moderate exercise too and it starts becoming one big beneficial cycle.

We will look at how appetite suppressants work here, and why weight loss medications may be better than prescription weight loss pills for some people who have more of that psychological attachment to food and are inclined to often eat more than the should.

5% Less Annually

This is sort of the benchmark for how a weight loss medication should work when used as an appetite suppressant. Losing weight too quickly is not only bad for your health but it also increases the likelihood you’ll put the weight back on. This is especially true for prescription weight loss pills, as most of them are not intended to be taken for anything more than 3 months. You may find that you have less back pain when you lose weight more gradually too, and that is to go along with all the other benefits of moderate weight loss.

As for appetite suppressants, Saxenda (Liraglutide) is known to be one of the better weight loss injections because only it and Phentermine-topiramate are known to come close to helping people using FDA-approved appetite suppressant meds to get results around 5% weight loss per year. Of course, if the person makes additional dietary changes and / or engages in more calorie-burning exercise they may lose even more, but this is only in reference to the effectiveness of weight loss medication.

Mind & Body

Another thing to keep in mind with appetite suppressant medication is that for some comfort eating is a means of being emotionally reassured when they’re experiencing adversity of any sort. Enhanced food cravings for any reason can be a problem for people who are hoping to have good results from using weight loss injections or prescription weight loss pills.

Using a punching bag to relieve stress can be a great way to work out your issues and get more of that light physical exercise we’ve been promoting here. And then – not to anyone’s real surprise – you’ll likely also feel much less like eating and much more like enjoying your newfound dexterity and ability to throw a mean haymaker. There’s so much to be said for breaking a sweat whichever way you choose to do it, and this is just one example of what you can do to make an appetite suppressant even more effective for weight loss.
