Why do people have weight loss injections

When diet and exercise alone aren’t enough to help you lose weight within your weight loss journey, it can become incredibly frustrating. This is because within society there are a lot of diet programmes and weight loss schemes promoted with successful results and positive emotions attached. However, sometimes these don’t always work and aren’t sustainable for everyone. If this is the case, you may be at a point where you are assessing what options are available for your weight loss journey. You may be considering a gastric balloon or weight loss injections if bariatric surgery seems too much.

How do they work?

Weight loss injections are something that can help you lose weight effectively and give you the opportunity to adapt to a more sustainable and healthier lifestyle when you are struggling.

Do they reset your metabolism?

In terms of whether this resets your metabolism, there is limited research that has been conducted however the injections can help you reset your metabolism by naturally reducing your appetite and increasing your fat-burning capacity (body line clinic).
