Weight rebound

Weight rebound after stopping GLP-1 medication

What is weight rebound?

Weight rebound is when you gain back weight that had previously been lost.

It’s something that may be experienced by people who lose weight through calorie reduction, weight loss programs, and weight loss medications.

Frequently Asked Questions

Weight rebound can happen for different reasons. If you were taking weight loss medications, you might find that you’re gaining back the weight you lost.  

Stopping weight loss medications can lead to a spike in blood sugar. This can change your cravings and appetite levels. You might be craving more food than before, and you might be feeling hungrier than you’re used to.  

It’s also common for your metabolism to slow down while taking weight loss medications, making it harder to keep the weight off after stopping them. This is due to the calorie deficit that may occur because of the mechanism of action of the weight loss medications. Your body can sense when you are consuming fewer calories, so as a result it will metabolize calories at a slower rate.

It is important to adopt positive lifestyle changes in the event that you and your healthcare provider make a decision to discontinue your weight loss medication. Incorporating exercise and healthy eating habits into your daily routine from the start of your weight management journey will help you maintain your weight goals over the long term.

Incorporating low-carb, high-fiber, and protein-rich foods into your diet can help you stay full for longer. Try making meals with a few of the following ingredients:

  • Beans, nuts
  • Whole grains
  • Lean meats
  • Fish
  • Eggs
  • Greens

In addition, you can add a protein supplement into your diet, like Garden of Life Raw Organic Fit Protein Powder. One serving contains 28 grams of plant-based protein that helps burn fat, satisfy hunger, and build muscle.*
