Here are 10 helpful Mounjaro tips that have helped me the last few months successfully lose weight.
Hey friends! I’m so excited to see all of the new interest in Tirezepatide. I’ll update everyone soon on my personal Mounjaro weight loss journey soon. I’ve seen your messages, promise to update but will jus say this – it’s all positive (and negative in numbers at the same time!)
Best Mounjaro Tips for Weight Loss
Today I wanted to share a few things that I’ve learned that hopefully will be helpful regardless if you are just starting or are on the same path as I am.
We know many of you have come here looking for information about the Mounjaro coupon. This allows you to pay as little as $25.
There have been updates to the coupon, here is the latest information: Mounjaro Savings Card Update.
If you have a friend that is on this journey, please share this post with them. Or better yet, if you have Mounjaro tips that have helped you – please leave a comment and I’ll add them to our list.
I want this to be an on-going post that we can make as comprehensive as needed to help all of us who are on Tirezepatide to make each of our experiences the best as possible. Here are the 10 helpful Mounjaro tips that have helped me.
Focus on YOUR Health Journey
This is about YOU and YOUR health. While it is easy to hear from a friend or see in a community how Jenny lost 10 pounds in her first week, while you only lost 3 – so what. Good for Jenny, but this health journey is about you – not what everyone else is experiencing!
I first shared about. Mounjaro and low carb diet when I first started. Many of you have followed along on my journey (thank you!) While it’s been fun to share, I want to help remind everyone that this isn’t a comparison game.
It’s great to know what others are experiencing and the possibilities but at the end of the day – the lifestyle and chemical makeup of your body is also unique. Stay focused on your health journey.
Hydration is key for not only weight loss on Mounjaro – but your overall health. Something I have made sure of is to ensure that before injection day that I am extra hydrated.
I’ll be the first to admit, water and me haven’t always had the best relationship. I make myself drink a electrolyte supplement each night. The latest purchase was Liquid IV, it works great – but wish it had less sugar (though, i know electrolytes = sugar.)
Don’t miss all of our diet memes!
Another thing that has helped, as stupid as it may sound is a GOOD water bottle that keeps my water cold. I really like drinking from a straw and my other requirement is that the water bottle has to fit into my car cup holder. I bought this one on Amazon and it’s been my water BFF for the last several months.
While this isn’t something clinically I can state – but from personal experience, I do feel better and negative side effects are less impactful when I am hydrated.
Communication is Key
Communicating with your doctor in regards to all of your symptoms, both good and back are essential. We’ve written a post on Mounjaro side effects to explain some of the most common things noted, but make sure that you are communicating these things with your doctor.
The information relayed to your doctor or medical professional with help best determine the proper Mounjaro dosage for you and help them to guide you best through the journey.
Protein and Fiber Are Your Friend
Next in our list of Mounjaro tips, let’s talk protein and fiber. Protein and fiber are your friend. Creating a habit of including both of these elements in your daily diet will not only help you while using Mounjaro – but also as you go on to create a life of healthy living.
Protein helps you reduce hunger, build lean muscle and will help maintain a healthy weight.
Fiber is essential on Mounjaro as it helps normalize bowel movements (which iykyk.) As if that isn’t reason enough! Fiber also helps regulate your body’s use of sugars and helps keep hunger and blood sugar in check.
This is a Marathon, NOT a Sprint
While the amazing thing with Mounjaro is the amount of weight loss people are losing, something we have to do is zoom out and focus on the long-game. What we achieve at mile 1 is just as valuable as mile 20.
For some like myself, this is hard to remember. So while there is an end goal – I do like the idea of setting smaller goals. Think of these as mini-races that occur during your marathon.
Don’t Ignore Food – Appetite Suppression is Real
This is something that some of you may roll your eyes at because of course you have to eat. That said, some of us know the magical effect of appetite suppression from Mounjaro and know how hard it can be to eat because there is NO desire to.
Being on Mounjaro, many of us go into a natural intermittent fast. Not eating fro 15 hours isn’t unheard of – that said, make sure that you are eating or else you will be miserable!
Something I noticed, if my caloric intake is extremely down – my body goes into starvation mode. While you would think, oh I haven’t eaten very much – surely I lost weight. Nope! My body does not work like that. Eat small meals. Drink protein shakes, which by the way I love Fair Life Core Power – it was 42 grams of protein.
Sleep You Must
Get plenty of rest. A good night of sleep should be 7-9 hours.
While personally insomnia is just a thing I’ve had to deal with for my entire life, it is something that with all of the other health factors that I have to address.
Take a Bariatric Multivitamin and Collagen
Next on our list of best Mounjaro tips is all about supplements. Find a good bariatric multivitamin to take daily. These are created for easy absorption, typically hard easier on the stomach and contain a high concentrate of vitamins.
My personal favorite bariatric multivitamin is the BariMelts multivitamin with iron. Check with your doctor to determine if your multivitamin should include iron.
Collagen us a key component in bones, skin, hair, muscles and other part of our body. Adding in a collagen supplement can help prevent hair loss and brittle nails which is often a side effect experienced with Mounjaro.
My favorite way to get in collage is by adding a scoop of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides to mycoffee in the morning.
Research and Educate Yourself
By reading these Mounjaro tips, you are researching and educating yourself. So consider marking a huge check next to this! Just continue to do this. While GLP-1 are amazing, this is an evolving new movement in weight loss.
Just in the last year, we have Ozempic, Wegovy and now Mounjaro. With this BILLION dollar industry, and the yearning for a healthy life – we will see obesity treated as a disease rather than a condition. This is great news! Know that all of this is new.
We are all learning this information together so stay informed by continuing to research and educate yourself so that you understand what’s best for you.
Focus on Health Over Pounds Loss
Don’t focus on the numbers on the scale. The NSV or non-scale victories are just as important if not more than the number of pounds lost.
Think of all of the health benefits that you are experiencing other than weight loss. These NSVs need to be celebrated. It’s isn’t just about the pounds.
Whether it be a pair of jeans fitting that you haven’t worn in years or a blood test coming back showing a positive drop in your numbers. We have heard from many of you about your doctors taking you off of medications and the energy and life that you feel like that you’ve gotten back. These are the NSVs!
Celebrate all of the heath wins on your journey, not just weight loss!
