Is it possible?! After a certain point, can weight-loss medications such as GLP-1 receptor agonists stop working? In this blog, we’ll explore what happens with GLP-1 RAs, particularly Saxenda or Ozempic, when it seems like they are no longer effective. We call it tachyphylaxis when a drug no longer becomes effective or becomes less effective with successive doses. Does this happen in GLP-1 RAs? Does our body start to adapt? Find out the answers here.
As I’ve mentioned earlier in this series, our brains have two parts: the primal and the modern. We’ve covered the primal brain in parts 1 & 2. Now, let’s talk about the other player: the Modern Brain (aka the prefrontal cortex). This is the part of our brain that separates us from the animals. In this blog, we’ll cover how our modern brain allows us to plan ahead, organize our day, prepare meals, go grocery shopping, solve problems, etc. What kind of influence and control does it have over our primal brain? Join me here to find out.

Do we need to try to control it? Find out more with me here.
