Weight Management Tips

Remember, Wegovy is most effective when combined with a healthy lifestyle. Here are some tips to support your weight management journey:

Tip #1: Reduced-Calorie Diet

Fill your plate with fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. These foods are packed with nutrients and fiber, which can keep you feeling fuller for longer. 

Tip #2: Increased Physical Activity

Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week. Find activities you enjoy, like walking, swimming, biking, or dancing. Start slowly and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts. 

Tip #3: Mindful Eating

Pay attention to your hunger and fullness cues. Eat slowly and savor your food. Avoid distractions while eating.

Tip #4: Stay Hydrated

Drinking plenty of water can help you feel full and curb cravings.

Tip #5: Get Enough Sleep

Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Poor sleep can disrupt hormones that regulate appetite.

Tip #6: Manage Stress

Chronic stress can contribute to weight gain. Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as yoga, meditation, or spending time in nature.
