This “Wonder Drug” isn’t all it’s cracked up to be


There’s an old saying that goes, “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.”

Those wise words are especially pertinent to the latest “Holy Grail” of the weight loss world.


Semaglutide is the active ingredient in the diabetes drug Ozempic. It is also an ingredient in Victoza—another diabetes medication, and the weight loss drugs Wegovy and Saxenda.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you undoubtedly know or have seen someone who has used semaglutide injections and dropped a considerable amount of weight.

Woo-hoo! Sign me up!

Not so fast.

Because just like virtually every other drug in existence, semaglutide has a very dark side, and although it may help you drop pounds, it can open a can of worms in terms of serious side effects.

Here’s what I mean:

How it “works”

Semaglutide mimics a hormone that naturally occurs in your body and helps control blood sugar and insulin levels.

That’s why it was originally designed for people with Type 2 diabetes.

In addition to affecting insulin, it can also influence your nervous system, leading to an appetite-reduction response. However, one of its effects includes delayed gastric emptying, meaning the passage of food through your stomach is slowed way down. 

This in turn can make you eat less food, stop eating sooner and/or feel fuller longer…and that, my friend, translates to weight loss.

But it doesn’t stop there, and the rest of the story is not so pretty. Here are some of the…

Serious side effects of semaglutide

Delayed gastric emptying is characteristic of a condition called gastroparesis.

Gastroparesis literally means "paralyzed stomach.” When your stomach can’t carry out its job like it should, that can lead to gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, vomiting and nausea, which are reported side effects of semaglutide.

In addition, research from the University of British Columbia revealed that these injections are associated with an increased risk of not only stomach paralysis, but also pancreatitis and bowel obstruction—both of which have the potential to be fatal.

Other possible side effects include gallbladder problems, kidney problems, serious allergic reactions, increased heart rate and even suicidal thoughts.

There is also a warning in the package insert literature for people with a history of certain thyroid cancers against taking the medication.

Oh, and by the way, once you stop taking the injections, you’ll likely gain back all the weight you lost.

The best way to lose weight!

When it comes to weight loss, healthy lifestyle habits are the key!

Instead of relying on potentially fatal medications and/or trying one diet fad after another, if you commit to maintaining healthy habits 365 days a year, weight problems can become a non-issue for you. 

Because you’ll naturally lose excess weight smartly and healthfully…and keep it off!

And these healthy habits are are the basis for my book, Want to Lose Weight? Stop Dieting!

The formula is key

Want to Lose Weight? Stop Dieting! lays out a health-supporting “formula” that can help you achieve your ideal body weight, as well as stay disease- and medication-free for life!

These are the same principles by which I live my life. And the fact I’m 61 years old, wear a size 2, have no health problems and take no medications whatsoever ain’t a coincidence.

I call it the REAL weight loss formula because that’s what it is—real life 12 months a year and not injections or a restrictive diet.

Here are the 4 components:

Eating REAL food

Eating real (not processed) food is vital to weight loss! If your body is not nourished, you will be more likely to snack and/or binge, which leads to weight GAIN—not loss!

I’ll guide you on what to eat (and what to avoid!), plus you’ll get a book of 170 luscious recipes that you and your family will love!

Supporting EFFICIENT digestion

In Want to Lose Weight? Stop Dieting! I’ll show you what foods to pair foods together in your meals to support efficient digestion, more regular BMs and less gas, bloating and heartburn.

Many people don’t realize this, but it makes a difference what foods you eat together—because certain combinations are easier for your stomach to tackle, while others cause digestive disaster!

ADOPTING an exercise routine that is right for you

Many people dread exercise, but when you choose an activity that you can enjoy, exercise can actually be fun!

I’ll guide you on how to pick what’s best for you, give you tips to ensure your success, and provide strategies to help you stay motivated!

Counteracting LIMITING factors that hinder weight loss

There are a plethora of sneaky factors that you might not be aware of that could be secretly hindering your weight loss efforts, and unless you address them, you simply won’t be as successful in losing weight as you should!

These can include medications, environmental toxins, stress, food additives and much more!

I will guide you on what to watch for and how to overcome those barriers to your success!

Additional weight loss support

Here are 3 other helpful suggestions to support your weight loss goals:

Balance your microbiome

If you’ve been a carb and sugar fan for a while, or if gas, bloating and constipation are your regular companions, chances are excellent you’ve got serious imbalances in your gut microbiome.

Since the friendly microbes in your gut help with digestion and nutrient absorption, repopulating and supporting these intestinal good guys with a potent, full-spectrum probiotic like Super Shield PLUS Multi-Strain Probiotic Formula is extremely important for weight loss success.

Try turmeric

Turmeric has been shown in various studies to help boost fat-burning!

In addition, in an animal study conducted at York University, turmeric was shown to help limit weight gain and the growth of fat tissue in rats.

And if blood sugar control is also a concern for you, here’s good news: Research shows that turmeric can help maintain proper blood sugar levels by increasing insulin secretion by the pancreas and supporting the absorption of glucose out of the bloodstream into the cells. 

If you want to unleash the impressive power of turmeric to help support your weight loss goals, look no farther than our Optimal Turmeric Blend.

Optimal Turmeric Blend provides a soothing 750 mg of turmeric, plus black pepper fruit extract, which enhances absorption of the turmeric.


Acupuncture helps balance your hormones (including hunger hormones), it helps increase endorphins (your body’s feel-good chemicals), it helps reduce stress (the stress hormone cortisol causes stress eating and binging), and it improves digestion.


When there are misalignments along the nerves in your spinal column, nerve communication is hampered and the signals controlling hunger and eating can be affected. In addition, people with back pain often have trouble exercising, which contributes to weight gain.

Now you have the information you need to achieve your weight loss goals safely and successfully!

To your health,
