In the pursuit of a healthier lifestyle, various approaches exist to support weight management. Among these, G1P1 medications stand as a promising option. These medications, also known as GLP-1 receptor agonists, have gained attention for their potential impact on weight loss and their role in transforming dietary choices.

What are G1P1 Medications?

GLP-1 receptor agonists are a class of medications initially designed to manage type 2 diabetes. However, they have shown promise in aiding weight loss beyond their diabetic applications. These medications work by affecting appetite, metabolism, and insulin sensitivity, contributing to their weight-regulating properties.

Common Medications and Weight Loss:

Several G1P1 medications have emerged as effective tools in the battle against obesity. Drugs such as Ozempic, Wagovy, Mounjaro, Zepbound and others have been observed to assist in weight management when used under proper medical guidance. They operate by curbing appetite, slowing down gastric emptying, and influencing metabolic processes, contributing to notable weight loss in certain individuals.

Inspiration from ‘Forever Strong’ by Dr. Lyons:

Dr. Gabrielle Lyons, in the book “Forever Strong,” delves into the role of GLP-1 receptor agonists in reshaping not only medical treatment but also dietary choices. The book illuminates the transformative potential of these medications, emphasizing their impact on healthier food preferences and improved eating habits.  

Focusing on muscle-centric medicine, Dr. Lyons is a medical professional paving the way for a new paradigm of weight loss- instead of focusing on what you can lose, focus on what you gain.  

With the help of GLP-1 medications and changes in lifestyle, we could see not only a shift in our personal health and wellbeing, but also an economic shift in what we consume as a society.  A recent study shocked me on the impact of these medications on our food choices.

The Junk Food Armageddon

Demand for junk foods could plunge due to GLP-1 drugs.

Recently, we’ve seen the stocks of some of the largest food and beverage companies in the world plunge due to concerns about how GLP-1 drugs could impact their businesses.

We’re now getting some real data on the impact that GLP-1 drugs have on the demand for food, and it’s pretty astonishing.

Morgan Stanley recently surveyed 300 people who are taking these drugs, and according to their survey, people on these medicines reduce their calorie intake by a whopping 20% to 30%.

Today, with only around a couple million people using GLP-1 drugs, that’s not something that’s all that consequential for an industry as large as the food industry.

But over the next several years, as more and more people start to use these drugs, the impact could get much bigger.

By 2035, Morgan Stanley estimates that 24 million Americans, or 7% of the population, could be using anti-obesity drugs. If that 7% of the population reduces their calorie intake by 20% to 30%, we could see a significant decrease in calorie consumption for the nation as a whole.

But it’s not just about the overall change in calorie consumption. Some parts of the food industry are going to get hit much harder than others.

That’s because the decline in calorie intake among users of GLP-1 drugs isn’t evenly distributed. Morgan Stanley’s survey shows that users of the drugs cut back on consumption of unhealthy foods dramatically, while increasing their consumption of healthy foods.

For instance, over two-thirds of survey respondents reported consuming fewer salty snacks, baked products and confections.

Over three-quarters of them visited fast food restaurants less frequently.

And over a fifth of respondents gave up alcohol and drinking sugary beverages completely.   

On the other hand, consumption of fruits and vegetables; poultry and fish; as well as dairy products stayed the same or even increased. 

Research from JPMorgan and Barclays, which looked at actual purchases by GLP-1 drug users by analyzing their purchase receipts, showed similar results—people on these drugs buy a lot less food, and especially junk food. 


The evolving landscape of G1P1 medications offers hope for those navigating the complexities of weight management. With their potential to influence not only weight loss but also dietary preferences, these medications stand as catalysts for healthier lifestyles.

While the effectiveness of these medications varies among individuals, their role in reshaping dietary choices is a compelling aspect worth exploring. Consultation with healthcare professionals remains crucial in understanding the suitability and potential benefits of G1P1 medications in your weight management journey.
