Skinny Shots: Do They Work?

The short answer is YES! There are two current medications approved for weight loss that utilize the GLP-1 receptor agonist pathway. Semaglutide and tirzepatide. These medications work my making your tissues more insulin sensitive, which really helps for anyone with insulin resistance.

So not only do you feel less hungry, you might also notice happier mood and less compulsive behaviors such as checking your phone every 2 minutes or intrusive thoughts. The next question most people ask me is whether they will need to be on this medication forever. The answer in my next blog post.
