Erin and Anissa join us to discuss peptides, semaglutide, Ozempic, weight loss during the aging process, how we must also address our lifestyle, and more. Semaglutide itself is a series of amino acids.” 

“We don’t wake up one day and we’re obese. We slowly but surely throughout the lifespan, through environmental factors, lifestyle factors, genetic factors, etc. can gain weight.” 

“The average woman over the age of 45, 45% of us are obese; not overweight.” 

“When you can personalize the care that you’re offering and giving those specific, actionable routes, I do think that it creates this opportunity to carry that forward on their own terms.” 

“Maybe the Groupon versions of semaglutide are promoting shot only but I would imagine that even they are not. This is a component of a person’s life. It is not the only thing that we hope that they are doing to pursue their own health.”

  1. David, you were very tough on your guests and it made me very uncomfortable. I was sitting here thinking with all the crazy diets out there… who is going to sue all of them. How about the HCG diet, the Keto diet, the starvation diet? I’ve been on all of them. Where are the muscles going on those diets? Down the drain, right? These women are providing a drug with all the support to keep that from happening, but you hammered them like they were selling opium. Sedentary lifestyle is the enemy and I want you to show me any 60 or 70 year old women who can lose weight by only going to the gym. No, you have to eat less and that is the hard part especially when you gain weight on 1200 calories a day. I’ve worked in the retirement business for years….our residents were not obese, you know why? The obese people have already died of some related disease. Yes many of the skinny ones died as a result of fractured hips, but they were 90 years old. Your a muscle guy and that is your focus, I get it. but sometimes it wears me out!

  2. Thanks Connie! Love your comments. Lifestyle is so key, as you point out, but you’re also right that sometimes, a little help (like semaglutide) can help kickstart losing weight that is causing problems – whether healthwise or just mentally. Thanks for sharing your perspective!

  3. I thought your attitude towards this fairly new protocol was right on. Weight loss drugs and surgeries have caused unintended harm to many. Increased incidence of osteoporosis is a not-uncommon side effect of surgical stomach reduction. Phen-fen caused heart valve problems, independent of lifestyle changes. Phentermine on its own causes elevated liver enzymes, And, of course, weight re-gain can occur, and often does, after surgery and when meds are discontinued even when lifestyle changes are implemented. Compounding pharmacies have their own checkered past. This is not a short term “kickstart” to weight loss that can then be maintained by diet and lifestyle modification. It’s a drug that will likely need be taken for life. I believe this medication will be life-saving for some. Those hoping for a kick-start are likely to be sorely disappointed. And those taking it long-term would be wise to pay special attention to potential bone loss and muscle wasting. Circling back to the way you pushed back on this, if you hadn’t shone a light on potential issues, this would have been the first and last podcast I listened to on your channel. Kudos to you.
