How to Safely Lose Weight After Baby

Bringing home a new bundle of joy is one of the most exuberant and happiest times of any family’s life. But for all the joy that comes with welcoming a new baby, many things make this time challenging. Lack of sleep, postpartum depression or anxiety, hormone imbalances, and the aftermath of the birthing process can make it seem like you are a stranger in your own body. 

It’s true that your body is full of miracles and should be celebrated in any shape and at any age, especially after birth. And yet, some new mothers may find the process of feeling great in their skin frustrating because of all the unknowns and recent lifestyle changes that come after birthing a baby. If you are looking for something that will help support post-baby weight loss, LaSara Medical Group’s treatments like Semaglutide, Tirzepatide, and Peptide protocols can help you reach your goals. Read on to find out more, and be sure to reach out to us for a free consultation!

Semaglutide at LaSara Medical Group

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved injection for fat loss in qualified adults. Semaglutide mimics a hormone called glucagon-like peptide 1, which targets the brain areas responsible for appetite and food intake. After you eat, your body releases glucagon to help lower your blood sugar, trigger insulin release, and block sugar production. Because Semaglutide mimics the glucagon-like peptide 1, you can expect to feel fuller and avoid spikes in appetite. Although it is unlikely that the medication could pass through breast milk, we at LaSara Medical Group prefer to take a conservative approach and recommend that mothers are finished nursing before they use Semaglutide.

Benefits of Semaglutide for Fat and Weight Loss

Semaglutide can help new mothers jump-start their weight loss journey. Benefits of Semaglutide include:

  • Helps suppress appetite
  • FDA approved
  • Controls insulin production
  • Curbs appetite spikes
  • Slows gastric motility
  • Improves food absorption

Much of the scientific studies show that patients are able to lose anywhere from 10% up to 30% of their body fat. 

You can administer Semaglutide yourself in the comfort of your own home. Take your prescribed dosage with a subcutaneous injection into either the abdomen or buttocks once a week on the same day in the morning or evening on an empty stomach. 

Tirzepatide for Weight Loss

Along with a healthy diet and exercise, Tirzepatide can help improve blood sugar (glucose) in individuals with type II diabetes and trigger dramatic weight loss in people who inject it. Tirzepatide is not FDA-approved for weight loss yet, but it has become a popular off-label weight loss medication due to its notable effectiveness. However, we recommend that nursing mothers consult their baby’s doctor before starting Tirzepatide treatment. Furthermore, if you are going to begin taking birth control, it is recommended to use Semaglutide over Tirzepatide as Tirzepatide lowers the efficacy and absorption of birth control medications. 

Tirzepatide works by decreasing your appetite and changing the rate at which your stomach empties. Unlike Semaglutide, Tirzepatide is a dual-agonist, which means it activates two receptors at the same time. Tirzepatide’s double-receptor approach provides a more noticeable weight loss than Ozempic and Wegovy’s single-receptor methods. 

Benefits of Tirzepatide for Weight Loss and Blood Sugar Management

Tirzepatide for Weight Loss is easy to administer at home, and results can be noticeable in as few as 4 weeks. Benefits of Tirzepatide include: 

  • Decreases food intake
  • Triggers weight loss
  • Enhances insulin secretion
  • Improves insulin sensitivity
  • Easy administration
  • Improves fat-burning capacity 
  • Mild side effects

Peptide Protocols at LaSara Medical Group

In addition to Semaglutide and Tirzepatide, LaSara Medical Group offers several Peptide Protocol Therapies to help with weight loss. Peptides are naturally occurring biological molecules that contain two or more amino acids connected by peptide bonds. Peptides fuel several crucial processes in the body, like hormone production, healing, and, most importantly, fat loss. Peptides work best when administered together in specific combinations to enhance the synergy and effectiveness of each peptide. For this reason, LaSara Medical Group offers a beneficial combination of peptides in the Fat Loss Peptide Protocol and Fat Burner Peptide Protocol.

Fat Burner Peptide Protocol

Fat burner protocol at LaSara Medical is a fat-blasting shot comprised of Methionine/Inositol/Choline (MIC), MethylB12, and MOTs-C. It is a potent combination that significantly enhances the body’s fat-burning capacity and helps you toward your desired physique. Fat Burner+ is a potent combination of fat-liberating amino acids and vitamin B12, along with the mitochondrial boosting peptide called MOTS-c. Methionine, Inositol, and choline help mobilize fatty acids from fat cells and the liver, and vitamin B12 boosts your energy levels and supports detoxification functions.

Benefits of Fat Burner Peptide Protocol

The Fat Burner protocol at LaSara Medical Group offers a safe and easy way to optimize your body’s fat-burning capabilities. Other benefits of the Fat Burner Protocol include:

  • Promotes weight loss
  • Increases metabolism
  • Improves exercise capacity
  • Helps convert protein and fat into energy
  • Promotes fatty acid metabolism in the liver
  • Protects from diet-induced insulin resistance
  • Promotes good nerve function
  • Increases red cell production
  • Boosts energy

Because peptides naturally occur in the body, they do not tend to elicit any significant side effects, offering a safe and well-tolerated treatment for your needs.

The Fat Loss Peptide Protocol

The Fat Loss Peptide Protocol at LaSara Medical Group includes our most popular and best peptide blend of Tesamorelin, CJC 1295/ Ipamorelin, and BPC 157, formulated to shrink subcutaneous and visceral fat. This potent peptide protocol can help supplement your fat-burning abilities by destroying fat cells (lipolysis) and helping to prevent the formation of new ones. 

Benefits of Fat Loss Peptide Protocol

Fat Loss Peptide Protocol is especially effective for losing belly weight and trimming down your waist. Benefits of this protocol include:

  • Increases protein synthesis
  • Encourages muscle growth
  • Increases breakdown of fat
  • Helps the human body retain calcium
  • Improve cognitive function and memory
  • Reduces visceral fat surrounding internal organs
  • Increases fat metabolism and mitochondrial function
  • Strengthens cardiovascular system and bone density
  • Improves immune system

You can inject both the Fat Loss and Fat Burner Peptide Protocols yourself. Our helpful medical staff will explain the easy injecting method during your initial consultation, and you will receive a shipment of your specially crafted Peptide Protocol right to your home. 

Diet for Weight Loss After Baby

All the extra help you can get from external sources like LaSara Medical Group will help speed up your weight loss process. However, if you don’t support your weight loss with a healthy diet, you may not see the results you desire. A Mediterranean-type diet, or any diet high in protein, low in fat, and low in carbohydrates, will provide your body with the fuel it needs without adding any extra calories! Diets that contain lots of fiber and don’t contain excess fat, sugars, and processed foods are also vital to maintaining a healthy weight. 

Best Exercises for New Mothers

First and foremost, you must get a go-ahead from your doctor before beginning any type of new exercise post-baby. Once you have gotten the all-clear from your healthcare provider, you can start with some low-impact exercises like:

  • Brisk walks – You can bring your bundle of joy with you in a stroller!
  • Baby Yoga – Many yoga studios offer low-intensity yoga classes for new moms that involve the baby, so you can feel free to bring them along!
  • Pilates and Yoga at Home – Plenty of services like Peloton and Tonal offer at-home workouts. These easy-level workouts can help you get back into fighting shape. Many services include specific post-baby exercises that target concern areas in postpartum bodies.
