Nutrition Recommendations for Individuals on Semaglutide

Nutrition Recommendations for Individuals on Semaglutide

Making informed nutritional choices is an essential component of any weight management plan, particularly for individuals on medications like semaglutide. Here, we'll explore some recommended dietary guidelines for those taking semaglutide, aimed at optimizing health outcomes and reducing potential side effects.

Complex Carbohydrates over Simple Carbohydrates

Focusing on complex carbohydrates rather than simple carbohydrates can support your weight management goals while on semaglutide. Swap out white bread, white rice, white tortillas, and corn for healthier alternatives like farro, quinoa, brown rice, and whole-grain bread. These complex carbohydrates provide sustained energy and are rich in fiber, keeping you feeling fuller for longer.

Embrace Vegetables and Fiber

Include plenty of vegetables in your diet, as they are nutrient-dense and low in calories. Additionally, incorporating high-fiber foods can help maintain regular bowel movements, as constipation can be a side effect of semaglutide. Aim for fiber-rich sources like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, and legumes.

Stay Hydrated

Hydration is key when taking semaglutide. Aim for a daily water intake of 2 to 3 liters (approximately 100 ounces) to help avoid constipation and maintain overall health. Adequate water intake can also promote feelings of fullness, aiding in weight management.

In summary, as a patient under the care of Dr. Amy Tomlinson, you can expect personalized guidance and support in making informed nutritional choices while on semaglutide.
