BMI Calculator

If you’re wondering: “Am I suitable for Semaglutide injections?” then knowing your BMI is a good place to start. 

BMI stands for Body Mass Index and is a measure that uses your height and weight to determine how much risk a person has of developing certain health problems due to weight.

Check your BMI with our BMI Calculator. The results will help determine whether or not you need to make an appointment with us to discuss losing weight. It is not a perfect measurement of your body fat by any means but it is a great guideline tool to help you take the first steps towards a healthy weight. 

Please note, a thorough consultation is required to deem you suitable for our medically managed weight-loss program.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide mimics a naturally occurring peptide in the body called GLP-1. Numerous studies have shown that this peptide reduces food cravings, reduces appetite, and helps control blood sugar.

You will find that your appetite is drastically reduced. We do recommend that you change your eating habits to eat healthier, nutrient-dense foods. However, you will find that if you don’t eat healthy foods, you will not feel well physically throughout the program. Exercise is also recommended with this program. Depending on how much weight you want to lose, it is also helpful to increase your water intake to 80 ounces of water per day to prevent changes in the skin appearance.

How We Prescribe Semaglutide on Our Program

We do not prescribe Semaglutide under any of its brand names. Instead, we work with a compounding pharmacy to compound it with Levocarnitine, an amino acid which may give you added energy and may help maintain lean muscle lass while you are on your journey to healthy weight loss.

All of our patients start off at a lower dose for the first month, and then the dose is titrated (increased) monthly based on your individual response.

Starting off with a smaller dose may help minimize potential GI related side effects. We will be happy to make recommendations to help minimize the side effects.

Semaglutide is a weekly injection administered subcutaneously. The needle is very small, and the injection is painless. You inject the dose under the skin into the abdomen or thigh. It can be taken with or without food.

Semaglutide Benefits

Our program is three to six months long, depending on how much weight you want to lose. Should you decide to continue, you will be evaluated and we will require you to see us once monthly.

The main benefit you will feel — which will help you to lose weight — is that Semaglutide reduces your appetite and makes you feel fuller for longer periods of time and controls your body’s glucose production.

Recommendations While on the Semaglutide Weight Loss Program

1. Eat Healthy Food

It is best not to overeat on this diet. You will notice that if you are eating high caloric, greasy or junk food, you will not feel well, and your energy levels will be low.

We recommend incorporating more protein and nutrient-dense foods into your daily food intake. If you follow these guidelines, you WILL feel much better and have higher energy levels, even while eating less!

2. Exercise

Exercise is not mandatory for you to lose weight while taking Semaglutide; however we strongly recommend that you incorporate an exercise regime into your lifestyle because of the added health benefits and more rapid weight loss. Exercise will also help maintain your muscle mass while dieting.

We encourage you to start slow. If you are currently not exercising, walking is an excellent starting place.

3. Drink Plenty of Water

It’s important to increase your water intake to 80 ounces of water per day.

What to Expect from this Program

As you navigate your weight loss journey and the more momentum you gain, the better you will feel. On average, you can expect to lose up to 15% of your body weight, depending on how long you are on the medication.

For those who only want to lose 20-30 pounds, the 12 week program may be enough for you.

If you plan to lose more weight, you will be re-evaluated and offered recommendations accordingly -with the goal to continue until you have lost the desired amount of weight. If you have a large amount of weight to lose, it may take up to a year.


While Semaglutide is appropriate for most, there are some contraindications that would prevent you from the program. These include:

Woman Weight Loss Comparison

The first step is to book an initial weight loss consult, you will be sent a link to watch an informational Semaglutide video and complete health intake questionnaire. 

The second step: upon completion of the video and questionnaire, you will visit with our nurse practitioner. She will answer any further questions you may have regarding the Semaglutide weight loss program, review your completed health questionnaire (which MUST be completed prior to your appointment) and discuss your goals. 

*As an effort to streamline your visit, please remember to have current labs (drawn within last 3 months) if applicable. If not-your lab will need to be drawn onsite or per your request, we can send your lab order to a Labcorp nearest you to have your blood drawn prior to your visit. Please note final lab results will take 48 hours.

This will allow us time to get your labs back and go over your health questionnaire and goals with you. We can also write your prescription for Semaglutide at your first appointment with us.

Please schedule your appointment! We look forward to speaking with you and being a part of your health journey!
