Hey Diet Culture Rebels!
Today’s episode is long overdue. Weight loss drugs are nothing new but the buzz around Ozempic is. I know you’ve been hearing all about the supposed weight loss benefits of taking Ozempic, and it can be persuasive to try it yourself! But part of my job as a Dietitian and Intuitive Eating Counselor is to help you make INFORMED choices.
- Do you know the risks?
- Do you know the long-term results?
- Do you know the research?
You’ll be able to answer yes to those questions after tuning in to this episode.
Today I’m talking with Dr. Asher Larmie, a returning guest on the DCR Podcast! I wanted to bring on Asher because it’s important to get the inside scoop on the ins and outs of these drugs from a physician. You DESERVE to get all the information about possible medical decisions so that you can make informed choices.
Asher is a transmasculine, weight-inclusive GP and a leading expert in weight stigma. They are a fat activist and founder of the No Weigh Campaign, which is committed to putting an end to medical weight stigma. They have over 20 years of medical experience and have been fat for even longer than that. One reason why I love having Asher on the podcast is because they are a guest in my group coaching program. Our clients really benefit from hearing from them and being able to ask them their own questions when it comes to weight-inclusive health.
