While some evidence suggests these injections might work with other weight loss methods, it’s important to implement these methods from the very start. Your doctor is your first source of expert advice on your weight loss goals since everyone’s situation is different.
Tried-and-true weight loss plans usually implement the following measures:
a steady weight loss of one to two pounds each week
behavioral changes, which include eating habits
getting enough sleep — seven to nine hours is considered adequate for most adults
regular exercise of at least a few hours per week
regular check-ins with a doctor, dietitian, or weight loss counselor
accountability via a personal check-in, a journal, or a tracking app on your smartphone
