You go to the gym religiously, but the needle on the scale isn’t moving. You ramp up the miles you’re running each week — but that extra roll of belly fat doesn’t want to go away.

But your testosterone levels are just fine, thank you very much.
Medically Assisted Weight Loss With Semaglutide
There’s good news that comes from a new medical innovation that is setting the weight loss world on fire. In 2021, the FDA authorized a revolutionary medication for weight loss: Semaglutide. It’s the first weight loss medication approved in 14 years and the most successful in history.
Semaglutide is sold under multiple brand names, with Wegovy being the most often used for weight loss. At Boston Vitality, we’ve developed a program to help you lose that stubborn weight. And if you’ve been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes (or you’re pre-diabetic), Semaglutide will help there, too.

WHAT IS SEMAGLUTIDE?
Semaglutide was first developed to treat people with Type 2 diabetes, and the FDA approved it for that purpose in 2017. During initial studies of the medication, researchers discovered that Semaglutide was also helping study participants lose significant amounts of weight in addition to controlling their blood sugar.
It mimics the actions of a hormone known as GLP-1, or glucagon-like peptide-1. This hormone slows gastric emptying, so you feel full after you eat more quickly and for a more extended period. As a result, Semaglutide reduces your hunger levels. It also regulates blood sugar levels, lowers blood pressure and suppresses appetite and food cravings.
Semaglutide goes even further than that, lowering fat levels and plaques in your bloodstream. It also decreases various symptoms commonly associated with diabetes, including excessive thirst, excessive urination, blurry vision and fatigue.
People taking Semaglutide eat less because it reduces their feelings of hunger. So by pairing Semaglutide with a healthy diet and a good exercise program, you will lose weight. In early studies, patients lost 15% or more of their body fat within one year, and almost half the trial participants lost 20% of their body weight. And here’s the even better news: they kept it off. Those are numbers that parallel the success rate of bariatric surgery — but losing weight with Semaglutide is far safer, easier and less invasive.
How Does A Semaglutide Program Work?
The FDA has approved two versions of Semaglutide: one for the management of Type 2 diabetes and one for the management of weight loss. The weight loss management program typically uses a slightly higher dose to get its effects. It’s not intended for someone who just needs to lose a few pounds but requires participants to be medically classified as overweight or obese.
Semaglutide is delivered via an injector pen; we will show you how to give yourself the injections, which you’ll only need to do once a week. You’ll start at a low dose of 0.25 mg per week, then gradually ramp up over a few months to as high as 2.5 mg per week. After about four months, you’ll reach a maintenance dose level, which you can stay on until you’ve lost the weight you want.
Benefits of Semaglutide for Men
Men who have been feeling sluggish because they’ve gained unwanted weight and can’t seem to lose it can benefit significantly from taking Semaglutide. The primary benefit is weight loss for men with a BMI of 27 to 30 (medically classified as overweight) and especially for those with a BMI of over 30 (medically classified as obese).
With the weight loss prompted by Semaglutide, you can also expect significant improvement in any weight-related medical issues. Many men who are overweight or obese experience high blood pressure, high cholesterol, unhealthy glucose levels or Type 2 diabetes. Semaglutide is effective against all of these, and it also boosts your overall cardiovascular health. When you pair Semaglutide use with exercise and a healthy diet, you can also expect to see your appetite come under control. Along with that, you’ll experience a reduction in food cravings and a greater ability to control meal portions.
Am I Eligible for Semaglutide?
If you’ve been medically classified as overweight (due to a BMI of 27 or more) or as obese (due to a BMI of 30 or more), there’s a good chance you are eligible to take advantage of this revolutionary weight loss medication. If you have type 2 diabetes or have an uncontrolled A1C level, you are eligible. In addition, you’re eligible if a diagnosis of either high cholesterol or high blood pressure accompanies that BMI. In addition, some men who have heart failure or kidney disease are also eligible.
Don’t take Semaglutide if you have a family history of medullary thyroid cancer. A history or family history of other thyroid or endocrine cancers may also make you ineligible to participate in a Semaglutide weight loss program.
