What Should I Eat While on Saxenda (Liraglutide)?
When taking Saxenda®, what you eat can contribute to how successfully you lose weight. Those that follow a healthy and sustainable eating pattern typically lose the most weight and keep it off. The medicine can be taken with or without food, and there are no food-medication interactions to worry about. Some people taking Saxenda notice eating large portions or very heavy meals can make them feel overly full or nauseated, so it may help to eat more slowly and serve yourself a smaller portion than you would normally eat. If you are experiencing acid reflux as a side effect from taking Saxenda, you may want to avoid or reduce your intake of common food triggers such as caffeine, alcohol, peppermint, spicy foods and acidic foods.
