Jesse Plemons denies Ozempic caused dramatic weight loss

Jesse Plemons denied his dramatic weight loss was due to Ozempic. The 36-year-old actor claimed he decided to "get healthy" at the same time the injectable medicine became popular. "It’s really unfortunate that I decided to get healthy when everyone decided to take Ozempic," Plemons told the Los Angeles Times. "It doesn’t matter. Everyone’s going to think I took Ozempic anyways. "But what it was, was getting older, and I hate even getting specific because then it turns into a whole thing. But there was a part that I did that, in my mind, I could not imagine him as the size that I was." RICKI LAKE REFUSED OZEMPIC FOR WEIGHT LOSS DESPITE DOCTOR'S CLAIM SHE COULDN'T LOSE WEIGHT WITHOUT IT Plemons revealed he lost weight through intermittent fasting. The method works by alternating periods of eating with not eating. "Several people talked to me about intermittent fasting, and I just gave it a shot and [was] surprised at how quickly it was effective," Plemons explained to the outlet. "So, I lost a little bit before I did that part and then felt like I was in the rhythm. I was feeling better, and something shifted in my head," he added. "I just sort of got a handle on it."
