If you’ve been trying to lose weight, you know how difficult and frustrating it can be. To accomplish your goals, it helps to have a team of medical professionals on your side who understand the elements of what goes into a successful medical weight loss program.

You Only Younger is proud to offer supervised medical weight loss in Sugar Land for those who have been struggling to lose weight. We help you reach your weight loss goals safely and effectively using proven supplements like Semaglutide.

What Is Our Approach?

The You Only Younger difference – As you already know, there are 100’s and 100’s of books, blogs, plans and gurus telling us how to lose weight. The fact still remains that 80% of people that lose a significant amount of weight gain it back in 2 years. Why? Because most of the time the advice we get, is some version of “move more and eat less”. While this is a winning formula for weight loss, there is plenty of evidence that this alone is not enough to have us win in the long term. At You Only Younger, our approach combines Science, Education and Accountability to help you win.

At You Only Younger we take an integrative approach to medical weight loss in Sugar Land. We believe Science is a key component of your weight loss journey. Once you are evaluated by our medical professionals, we will prescribe a safe, effective FDA-approved medication, Semaglutide. Semiglutide assists with appetite control by allowing you to feel full faster and result in subsequent weight loss. Studies have shown a 15% to 20% reduction in body weight through weekly Semaglutide shots which can be easily self-administered at home if desired. To ensure your safety, our medical professionals will monitor your progress, as well as periodically request bloodwork to be drawn for lab analysis to monitor your overall health.

You Only Younger believes knowledge is power. You can’t correct what you don’t know. You will be partnered with a nutrition advisor to provide education on how food can have a positive and negative effect on your weight loss journey. Individual meetings and group sessions are part of the education process. You Only Younger will provide you with our Weight Loss App to monitor your progress and allow you access to educational materials about the importance of food, nutrition, and exercise to accelerate your progress. The app will also provide continuous educational materials to motivate you daily. You will easily be able to contact our Weight Loss Team through the app with your specific questions and concerns.

Holding oneself accountable is the key to success in many challenges in life, including weight loss. You Only Younger will be your Accountability partner to monitor your progress through the Weight Loss App. As a participant in our Weight Loss Program, you will receive a scale linked to the app to measure your success. Other programs within the app track everything from your daily food and water intake, to sleep and daily activity/exercise and steps to hold you accountable. It helps us be a better coach to keep you accountable and lets us know when we need to give you the extra nudge when you need it and high-five your accomplishments!

Semaglutide FAQ

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an injectable medication that, together with diet and exercise, helps control your blood sugar, appetite, and assists you in achieving weight loss. It is very similar to the hormone GLP-1 that your body produces naturally to lower blood sugar levels after eating.

What is the hormone GLP-1?

GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide 1) is a hormone that helps your body regulate blood sugar levels by stimulating the production of insulin. It also slows down the rate that sugar enters your blood, helping you burn more fat and feel more full.

Is Semaglutide a stimulant?

No. Semaglutide works differently from weight loss medications like phentermine.

How does Semaglutide work for weight loss?

Semaglutide slows the rate that your stomach empties, triggers the release of insulin, and inhibits a hormone that normally stimulates your liver into releasing sugar, or glucagon. The effect is a decrease in your appetite, leading to less food intake and more weight loss.

How will Semaglutide affect me?

Semaglutide will help to curb your appetite and slow down gastric emptying. As a result, you will feel fuller for longer.

When can I expect results?

Your results may vary with your medical weight loss in Sugar Land, depending upon your individual lifestyle. A recent study of 2,000 participants found that taking Semaglutide for 68 weeks led to an average weight loss of 15 percent versus those taking a placebo.

Over one-third of study participants lost over 20% of their weight. Many patients also noticed improvements in their diabetes symptoms.

Is Semaglutide safe?

When used as directed, Semaglutide is considered to be quite safe and effective. However, that does not mean that side effects are not possible.

Who should not use Semaglutide?

Do not use Semaglutide if:

  • You have a history of pancreatitis.
  • You have type I diabetes.
  • You or a family member has a history of thyroid cancer.

Are there any foods or medications you should avoid while on Semaglutide?

Limit your consumption of alcohol while taking Semaglutide, particularly large quantities. The reason is that both Semaglutide and alcohol affect your blood sugar levels. A large amount of alcohol consumed with Semaglutide may cause an unsafe drop in your blood sugar levels.

What are the known side effects of Semaglutide?

The most common Semaglutide side effects are:

  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Stomach pain
  • Constipation

Do I need to inject the medicine myself?

Yes, but don’t worry, we will teach you how to do this over a Zoom session.
