Here Wegovy Again…

Posted · Add Comment

Obesity – because we know how genes work – cannot be genetic. Wegovy and Ozempic treatments without healthy behavior change will be a disaster. Nature will push back harder than we can push it if we fail to use the new drugs as a catalyst for lifestyle change.

Does it hurt your feelings or your physiology? (Time to pick up some things from the Reality Store.)
