Ozempic, Wegovy & the Semaglutide Slimming of Hollywood
If you watched the Oscars this month, you may have been surprised to see that so many celebrities had very noticeably slimmed down in the past year. While many won’t admit their weight loss “secret,” it’s no coincidence that so many actors and A-listers are now sporting thinner physiques in the year that Ozempic and Wegovy gained popularity for weight loss!
This ‘coincidence’ was not lost on Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel who opened the 2023 Academy Awards with the joke: “When I look around at this room, I can’t help but wonder, ‘Is Ozempic right for me?’ “
No matter what celebrities admit or deny, the fact of the matter is that a new drug that induces weight loss – semaglutide – is sweeping Hollywood. Marketed under the brands Ozempic and Wegovy, semaglutide just may be the ‘miracle’ weight loss medication we’ve all been waiting for!
And semaglutide weight loss injections are now available and in stock at AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI!
Did Mindy Kaling Lose Weight with Ozempic?
Beautiful Mindy Kaling showed off a 40-pound weight loss in a gorgeous, formfitting, Vera Wang corset gown (with a figure-revealing sheer bodice) at the 2023 Academy Awards. And many other celebs looked noticeable more svelte in their gowns and tuxedos, as well. But very few have come out and admitted that their weight loss was indeed due to Ozempic, Wegovy or other semaglutide medications.
Did Mindy use Ozempic, Wegovy or other semaglutide medication to lose weight? We’ll probably never know for sure – but experts, stylists and physicians in the press all suspect she did.
Elon Musk and Ozempic Weight Loss
However, Elon Musk – always one to speak his mind and also world’s richest man – has openly touted the benefits of Ozempic. In interviews he has stated that Ozempic made him ‘fit, ripped and healthy’ – saying he lost almost 30lbs while taking the drug.
Musk revealed that he was using Ozempic in October 2022, when a fan asked what the secret was to his new slimmer appearance. “Fasting and Wegovy” the 51-year-old billionaire replied. Mr. Musk went on to explain that his weight-loss journey was prompted after he saw unflattering photos of himself on his yacht.
Chelsea Handler is among the other big names who have actually admitted to successfully using Ozempic for weight loss. Ms. Handler used the drug for weight loss – but said she stopped using Ozempic after learning it was intended for those with diabetes. However, Wegovy (which has the same ingredient as Ozempic) is now specifically FDA approved for actual weight loss in adults with obesity or who are overweight with at least one weight-related condition! So no worries there, Chelsea!
Unconfirmed & Rumored Celebrity Ozempic Weight Loss
It would be irresponsible to speculate on what other celebrities have used Ozempic for weight loss – but clearly many people on the red carpet are looking much thinner since these semaglutide weight loss drugs were approved and became widely available. Most experts conclude that famous Ozempic users are likely just keeping their lips sealed.
Last year at the Met Gala, Kim Kardashian revealed she rapidly lost 16 pounds to fit into one of Marilyn Monroe’s vintage dresses. Her sister Khloe – always the bigger of the Kardashian sisters – also lost 40 pounds last year. And stars like Adele, Rebel Wilson and many others have lost significant amounts of weight recently – further sparking massive public interest in Ozempic and other weight loss medications.
And while there is no way to know which actors and influencers actually use Ozempic, one thing is certain: Ozempic works for rapid weight loss. In clinical trials, participants taking Ozempic or Wegovy for weight loss lost an average of 15-20% of their initial body weight! And when you ‘do the math’ that is a life-changing amount of weight loss. Twenty percent of a 150 pound person’s body weight is 30 pounds – which means they could drop from 150 to 120 pounds using Ozempic.
