Oprah Winfrey Personally Endorsed Weight Loss Medicine That Mark Wahlberg Advocates For

Oprah Winfrey has candidly discussed her lifelong struggle with weight, addressing both the emotional and physical hurdles she has faced. As a prominent figure, she has endured public scrutiny for her appearance, with criticism lasting for decades. In an interview with People, Winfrey talked about how she has been shamed for so many years.

“It was public sport to make fun of me for 25 years. I have been blamed and shamed, and I blamed and shamed myself.”

Winfrey revealed a significant weight loss, attributing it to a combination of weight loss medication, regular exercise, and lifestyle adjustments. She expressed feeling better than ever as a result of these changes. She especially endorsed GLP-1 drugs such as Ozempic, which Mark Wahlberg has been advocating for so long.

The fact that there’s a medically approved prescription for managing weight and staying healthier, in my lifetime, feels like relief, like redemption, like a gift, and not something to hide behind and once again be ridiculed for. I’m absolutely done with the shaming from other people and particularly myself.”

Oprah Winfrey will continue to speak up for things she believes in and that is all that matters to her right now. This is also something people should respect, as everyone is entitled to their own opinion no matter what.

Ozempic and Wegovy, both by Novo Nordisk, are brand names for the FDA-approved semaglutide, a weight-loss drug since 2021. Mounjaro or tirzepatide, a similar drug, awaits approval for weight loss but is used off-label. Semaglutide and its counterparts, like Ozempic, work by curbing appetite.
