What can affect weight loss?

Losing weight is challenging even with a healthy diet and regular exercise. Many factors can make sustainable weight loss difficult, including:


Your metabolism is the rate at which your body burns calories. A higher metabolism means you burn more calories at rest, making it easier to lose weight. Factors such as age, muscle mass, and thyroid function can influence your metabolism and slow weight loss efforts.

Diet and exercise

Consuming a balanced diet that is low in calories and rich in nutrients, along with regular physical activity, helps create a calorie deficit, leading to weight loss.


Genetics can influence your body's predisposition to store fat, respond to different foods, and regulate metabolism.


Imbalances in hormones such as insulin, cortisol, leptin, and ghrelin can affect hunger levels, energy levels, and fat storage, making weight loss more challenging.

Can medications help with weight loss?

While medications can’t replace a healthy diet and exercise, they can help facilitate weight loss. North Tex MedCare Clinic and Urgent Care offers many medications to help you lose weight, including:


Semaglutide is an injectable medication that works by mimicking the effects of your body’s glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) hormone, helping you feel full sooner and eat less.


Tirzepatide (Mounjaro®) is an injectable medication that acts on multiple pathways in your body to reduce appetite, control blood sugar levels, and promote weight loss.


Saxenda is an injectable medication that mimics the GLP-1 hormone, helping you feel full and satisfied with smaller portions.


Contrave is an oral medication that combines bupropion and naltrexone to reduce appetite and cravings while also potentially boosting metabolism.
