Weight-loss medication can be an effective tool for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, but it is crucial to complement this with an appropriate diet. Recent evidence-based guidelines provide clear recommendations to ensure nutritional needs are met while supporting weight loss.

 

Caloric Intake Recommendations

For optimal results, the daily caloric intake should be carefully monitored:

  • Women: 1,200 to 1,500 calories
  • Men: 1,500 to 1,800 calories

 

Essential Nutrients Breakdown

A balanced diet is essential to support overall health while on weight-loss medication. Here's how to structure your daily food intake:

 

Protein

Aim for more than 60 to 70 grams of protein each day. Ideal sources include:

  • Beans
  • Seafood
  • Lean meat
  • Poultry
  • Low-fat dairy
  • Eggs

 

Carbohydrates

Healthy carbohydrates should make up 45% to 65% of your total energy intake, with added sugars limited to less than 10% of total intake. Recommended sources are:

  • Whole grains
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Dairy

 

Fats

Fats should constitute 20% to 35% of your energy intake. Limit saturated fats to less than 10% of total intake. Recommended sources include:

  • Nuts and seeds
  • Avocado
  • Vegetable oil
  • Fatty fish and seafood

 

Avoid fried and high-fat foods due to potential gastrointestinal side effects associated with weight-loss drugs.

 

Fiber

Daily fiber intake should be:

  • Women: 21 to 25 grams
  • Men: 30 to 38 grams

 

Good sources of fiber are fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. If dietary sources are insufficient, a fiber supplement can be beneficial.

 

Fluid Intake

Maintain adequate hydration by consuming two to three liters of fluids daily, including:

  • Water
  • Low-calorie beverages
  • Low-fat dairy

 

Limit or avoid caffeine.

 

Supplementation

To ensure you meet your daily micronutrient needs, consider taking a multivitamin, as well as calcium and vitamin D supplements.

 

By following these guidelines, individuals on weight-loss medication can maximise their health benefits and ensure they receive the necessary nutrients to support their overall well-being. Always consult with a healthcare provider before making any significant changes to your diet or supplement regimen.
