Understanding the benefits and drawbacks of Ozempic is crucial when considering how to manage your weight after stopping this medication.

As a GLP-1 Agonist, Ozempic mimics a hormone in your small intestine that helps regulate insulin levels, control appetite, and slow down gastric emptying. While this can aid in weight loss, it can also lead to adverse side effects.
These side effects may include:
• Nutrient deficiency
• Gastroparesis
• Constipation
• Gallbladder problems
• Thyroid tumors and cancer

To help maintain your weight after Ozempic, it’s crucial to make certain lifestyle changes, such as:
1. Follow a ketogenic diet to keep insulin levels low and promote fat-burning.
2. Do intermittent fasting to control appetite and improve hormone balance.
3. Incorporate weight training to build and preserve muscle mass.

Additionally, ensuring adequate protein intake is crucial for maintaining muscle mass, especially for those who have already lost a significant amount of muscle while on Ozempic. This can be achieved through consuming bioavailable proteins such as red meat, eggs, and fish.

Monitoring your hormone levels and ensuring proper cholesterol intake is also important, as cholesterol is a building block for many hormones, including testosterone and estrogen.

    This is what i about to ask. Thank you for this.

    My doctor has mentioned me going on this when stocks go up in the uk but the more I hear about it there is no way I’m going on it.

    • @PS-en7wn says:

      I’d stear clear. I looked into it and jumped through loopholes to then be told they can’t offer it me due to stock levels. I’m In UK too. Had to wait a year and constantly filling in diaries and things..anyway I was 40bmi and now I’m 33bmi by eating carnivore and exercising. Never felt better. First month was a slog but now I enjoy it. No more depression and weight is slowly but surely going down each week. That’s all in 7 months. Stay away from the poison and false hope. Carry on with a lifestyle you can stick too is my advice. It can be done.

    Thank you Dr.BERG

    It’s a scary place to live in knowing we have people in high positions, like judges, lawyers, prosecutors, probation officers, parents, etc. who’d rather use this stuff instead of fixing their diet! Food induced anger is a real thing! 💯 Thanks, Sir! Have a great day, everyone! 🙂

    • @dakoderii4221 says:

      Depopulation at work. Gates wasn’t joking around. It’s so preposterous and outrageous that people cannot fathom it not only being real but happening to them in real time. People’s main defense: Saying “they wouldn’t do that now” or assuming it’s just yet another “mistake”.

    • @dawnelder9046 says:

      They are still brainwashed with the food pyramid and lipid hypothesis lies. I spent decades starving myself fat and sick on 1200 low fat, high fibre calories a day for decades. Had an active job and went to the gym daily. Barely fit a size Canadian 18.
      Switch to the human health diet in Good Calories, Bad Calories. The old 1950s British diet in the prologue.
      Watched The Oiling of America. Removed all seed oils.
      Lost the weight, no starving involved. Gained muscle strength finally.
      If I was still following the Adventist cult death diet I would be going for it if I could. Desperation does that.

    I was on Ozempic for over 2 years, 2.0 ml the last 2 months. Except at the very beginning, it never curbed my appetite. It did cause concerning constipation. I can’t say with any certainty it helped with controlling my blood sugar. I have quit Ozempic, my statin, and blood pressure medicines. I have been on the Keto diet with a daily 1600 calorie maximum , for past 6 weeks. I’m also walking and doing intermittent fasting 16/8. Since I started this I have lost over 20 pounds, my appetite is gone, and my blood sugar has gone from the mid 200’s to under 100.

  • @TruthMonger101 says:

    I take ozempic because I have type 2 diabetes. And my a1c went from 8.9 down to 4.6.

    My experience with Ozempic: I still had an appetite and it was still hard to limit my food intake. It wasn’t “easy” and it took a lot of self control and changing my whole way of eating. I am one of the lucky ones that has had zero side effects.

    If anything I feel stronger than I was. Yesterday I was out with a 10′ long chainsaw with a gas engine working for two hours. No soreness today at all. Before my weight loss I could barely do 20 min of grass trimming and could barely move when I was done.

    I guess what I’m saying is that ozempic isn’t all bad. Of course I will not be going off of it any time soon as it has controlled my BS wonderfully. In fact my doctor has had me cut the dose in half. I haven’t had any changes in my appetite or eating patterns.

    I guess what I’m saying is that it’s not all bad and with diet changes can lead to a significant weight loss that can help people be more active.

    Pls do more video on Achilles tendinitis. Why it become stiff when we walk ? Pls

  • @vanmansr3854 says:

    I lost 100 lbs in a year(2023 )with Wegovy. I was/am doing a lot of exercise(walking 5 miles a day and weights), low carb and IF and I drink a lot less alcohol. I am considering stopping Wegovy and replacing it with Berberine and keeping everything else the same. Btw, there is something to semeglitide and drinking less alcohol. It definitely curbed/almost eliminated my desire to drink alcohol. Prior to starting Wegovy I was a pretty heavy drinker.

  • @mekman4 says:

    Thank you, always. Since adhering to your advice, I’ve reverse a lot of health problems. Stuff I don’t want to go into here, but I’ve come off medication.

  • @MarieWilliams027 says:

  • @karinkissinger5106 says:

    I was on ozempic I loved it! Then my insurance stopped covering it and now all the food noise is back

  • @toots810usa6 says:

    Thank you for this. I have stopped taking one of these drugs the side effects were horrific and now facing a colonoscopy to figure out why my colon is inflamed. I already lost enough muscle mass from chemotherapy and told my doctor I don’t need this I need to go keto.
