When considering nutrition recommendations for individuals using injectable drugs for weight loss, such as GLP-1 receptor agonists (like semaglutide), it's essential to focus on a balanced diet that supports overall health and complements the medication's effects.
Dietvana would like to suggest the following recommendations if you are on a weight loss drug and need some nutrition tips:
Balanced Diet: Emphasize a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. This helps ensure adequate nutrient intake and may improve the drug's efficacy in weight loss.
Portion Control: These medications often reduce appetite, making it easier to control portion sizes. Pay attention to hunger and fullness cues to avoid overeating. The personalized menu can assist portion controlling your food intake, this approach allows for a more sustainable and balanced way to manage weight compared to restrictive diets.
Hydration: Stay well-hydrated. Water is the best choice, but other beverages like herbal teas can also be good options.
Fiber-Rich Foods: Include plenty of fiber in your diet from sources like vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains. Fiber helps with fullness and can aid in digestion. Our menus monitor exact amount of fiber in each meal.
Lean Protein: Incorporate lean protein sources, such as chicken, fish, tofu, legumes, and low-fat dairy, to help with satiety and muscle maintenance.
Healthy Fats: Include sources of healthy fats like avocados, nuts, seeds, and olive oil, which are important for overall health. We can personalize the menus with the healthy fat of your preference.
