Sometimes, as health professionals, we get so busy that we miss something really BIG that’s going on all around us.
It’s happening right now…. again!
THE NEW “MAGIC” PILLS / INJECTIONS
You may have heard about this new class of Obesity Drugs:
🔴 Ozempic (mfg. by Novo Nordisk)
🔴 Wegovy (mfg. by Novo Nordisk)
🔴 Mounjaro (mfg. by Eli Lilly)
(copy and paste into Google for more info. Check out the side effects!)
These new drugs were initially designed to help patients with Type II Diabetes.
But, “big pharma” quickly discovered these new drugs also helped people lose weight.
And, in their eyes, this means —> 💰💰💰💰 —> and lots of it!
So now these drugs are being marketed as a new class of “Obesity Drugs” — and, you might think:
“That’s nice, but most my clients are not obese. They’re just a little overweight.”
Listen, I can assure you that is NOT how it will play out in the real world.
There’s already a “buzz” in the weight loss world about how to get around that “obesity thing” in order to get their hands on these new drugs.
Let me make it even more clear. The mindset is exactly this:
“Why workout when I can just inject a drug!”
WHY AM I TELLING YOU ALL THIS…
There’s an old proverb: “To be forewarned is to be forearmed.”
As health and fitness professionals our approach to weight management has always been holistic via the 3Ps:
✅ Productive exercise
✅ Proper nutrition
✅ Positive mindset
But, for over 300 years people have fallen for the magic pill solution.

So, it will be in your best interest to know as much as you can (be forearmed!).

It won’t be long before referrals and prospects will be asking you about it.

THE “MACHINE” IS JUST GETTING STARTED…
There is BIG MONEY involved in weight loss (second most popular topic in the world!) like TRILLIONS of dollars!
So, Big Pharma is already spending a ton of money on slick advertising and marketing including paid doctors, nutritionists, dietitians and even ex-athletes to make it all look legit.
Big Pharma also is pushing hard for fast track approval from the FDA — and lobbying insurance companies to cover the costs. (It’s about $1,000 per month for these weekly injections).
Weight-Watchers has even started up a “Clinical Weight Management” program — Seems they’re expanding from pre-packaged foods to pharmaceuticals!
FIGHT THE “GOOD FIGHT…”
I’ll be the first to stand up for the morbidly obese who will very much benefit from these new drugs.
But, unfortunately that’s not how it’s all going to play out.
Medical Weight Loss will become the new, “cool thing” to do and people seeking the “quick fix” will flock to it.
So, I’m not trying to scare you (well, maybe a little)… but, I am attempting to encourage you to become knowledgeable about the “options” that will soon be available to your clients and prospects.
Your AWARENESS and KNOWLEDGE will reinforce your credibility and authority position as a health and fitness EXPERT!
