The Newest Diet Craze. . .”Oatzempic”

  • Another Weight Loss Trend Is Making Its Rounds On Social Media Called “Oatzempic”
  • TikTok users claim the drink made with oats, water, and lime juice can help you lose up to 40 pounds in as little as 2 months.
  • Registered dietitians are weighing in, saying the trend is clever, with the name being a play on Ozempic, but has no merit behind it.
  • "Blended oat drinks are not the same as prescription drugs. It also seems like a dangerous trend that promotes disordered eating and isn't nutritionally sound or based in science.”
  • She goes on to say, "I'm mostly just impressed with how people come up with this stuff. Oats contain a healthy dose of fiber which helps with fullness and satiety, potentially limiting snacking during the day. The combination of fiber and water in this drink can help with regular bowel movements, which may also lead to weight loss, but not necessarily fat loss."
  • What’s the craziest diet you’ve ever tried?
