Hey everyone,

I've been seeing a lot of buzz lately about Ozempic, especially in the context of weight loss. Originally intended for managing type 2 diabetes, it seems like many people are now using it off-label to shed some pounds. Oprah and Elon Musk to mention a few. This trend has sparked quite a bit of debate, and I’m curious to hear what you all think.
Is it fair for non-diabetics to snatch up Ozempic, potentially creating shortages for those who actually need it for diabetes management?
Do you think Ozempic should only be used for weight loss under strict medical supervision? Why or why not?
Is it ethical for non-diabetic individuals to use a diabetes medication for weight loss?

And the biggest question, is the Ozempic weight loss trend just another dangerous fad, or do you think it’s here to stay?

Why don't billionaires invest in private trainers, dieticians, organic healthy produce (etc) instead of using a drug to lose weight? They have the money and the time + the first option pays off more imo (build healthy habits and you're not using a drug with a billion side effects). Idk am I missing something? 😭

I guess it depends on the billionaire but wtf is Oprah doing all day?😭 I feel like they have the money to make time at least temporarily to focus on losing weight. Also diet is a big part of losing weight, that takes like no time if they have a private chef to make their meals

they prob do its just they dont care

zuck does all of those things

the real reason ppl are fat is they dont care and just want to eat a lot, so many people are in denial about this

same reason people buy smokes even when theres a photo on the ciggie packet of some grandmas torched out voice bawks

ozempic can only work on the fatties who dont want to be fat and are willing to take it for life despite the side effects, once they are off it theyll just become big fat pieces of shit all over again
