Mark Wahlberg doesn’t judge Ozempic users, he prefers the exercises
May 5, 2023
Mark Wahlberg shared his honest opinion on the current weight loss craze using Ozempic.
Despite being widely recognized for her intense workout routine and diet, the three-time Screen Actors Guild Awards winner revealed that she’s not a fan of diabetes medication. With her contribution, she joined a long list of celebrities, including Jameela Jamil and Anthony Anderson, who have spoken out against the controversial Hollywood craze.
Mark Wahlberg refused to judge Ozempic users despite disapproving of their use
The conversation about celebrities using Ozempic to lose unwanted weight is becoming more and more popular. The latest person to join the fray is Wahlberg, who made his point at the grand opening of the Aria Hotel & Casino Cathédrale in Las Vegas over the weekend. It’s only for him Page sixthe “I Heart Huckabees” actor stated:
“To each their own, but I encourage people to eat right and exercise. It’s more of a lifestyle change. You’d be surprised what you can achieve if you’re willing to do the work.”
The father-of-four explained that he preferred to stay healthy “the good old way” as it was the “most sustainable” option. He also noted that taking this route gives people “longevity” to keep the weight off.
Despite her disapproval of people using Ozempic for weight loss, the ‘We Have The Night’ star made sure her users weren’t judged. According to his words:
“Everyone has their own path. I’m not knocking anyone down for making up your own mind. But I love it more – and I’ve seen a lot of people do amazing things, ordinary people doing extraordinary things in a fitness base and now encouraging others who are like them. That’s what I’m into.”
Aside from encouraging people to stick to the “old fashioned” approach to shedding pounds, Wahlberg has proven that he’d do anything for his family. For starters, The Blast reported earlier this month that she revealed that her children were the primary reason her family moved from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.
“I’ve spent a lot of time in Los Angeles pursuing my interests and my career, and now it’s time for them to pursue theirs,” the “Pain & Gain” star revealed at the time, adding, “Everybody’s thriving there; it was great,” in a separate interview.
She revealed that she wants to give her children – Ella Rae, Brendan, Grace Margaret and Michael – “a better life and follow and fulfill their dreams”. “Whether it’s about my daughter as a rider, my son as a basketball player, my younger son as a golfer – it was much more meaningful for us,” detailed the kind father.
Anthony Anderson reiterated earlier this year that Ozempic is used to treat diabetes
When Anderson attended the annual Game Big Give Event in February, he made sure to take the opportunity to touch on the Ozempic theme. The issue particularly shocked the actor as he had been living with type 2 diabetes for more than two decades following his diagnosis in 2002.
Per The BlastHe said Ozempic’s Hollywood rave is “creating a shortage” of people like him who need the drug for health “not weight loss.” Unfortunately for comedians and other type 2 diabetes patients, the drug was recently approved as Wegovy and focuses on promoting weight loss and treating obesity.
Both drugs were already in short supply on the website of the US Food and Drug Administration. The shortage has tripled Anderson’s dedication to raising awareness of the disease. To this end, he used his appointment as an ambassador for pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk’s “Get Real About Diabetes” campaign to spread his message around the world.
He even dedicated an episode of his hit ABC series “Black-ish” to an episode about being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. In one of her conversations about her life after her diagnosis, the Central Ohio Film Critics Association winner said:
“It changed my life. It slowed me down a bit to figure out what it was, what moves I needed to make next. And I wanted to know what to do to stay healthy, live with this disease, and not die from it.”
