However Victoria’s Secret ambassador said she has mixed feelings about Ozempic because when she stopped taking the once-weekly injection, her binge eating worsened.
“I went to the doctor and they said, ‘It’s 100 percent because you were taking Ozempic,’ because it made me think I wasn’t hungry,” she explained. “I lost some weight. I didn’t want to obsess over the long-term of it and I said, ‘I bet as soon as I stop I’ll starve again,’ and I did.”
“My binge eating got much worse, so I kind of blamed Ozempic,” Bader added. “I gained twice as much weight afterwards.”
