Does the Oatzempic Really Work?

The “budget Ozempic” recipe is taking over Tiktok

For you page on Tiktok has been jamming with videos about the Oatzempic recipe through the past few days. What’s that? The Ozempic injection is nothing strange for diabetics or diet communities as it’s a medication formulated to help with blood sugar and weight loss. People who seek quick weight loss usually go for this type of medications as an alternative for surgeries like sleeve gastrectomy, however, both aren’t affordable for everyone. But now diet enthusiasts found a dupe for the surgery’s dupe, twisting the name of the original injection into Oatzempic.  

HOW OZEMPIC WORKS

Ozempic works by mimicking a naturally occurring hormone. As those hormone levels rise, the molecules go to your brain, telling it you’re full. It also slows digestion by increasing the time it takes for food to leave the body. This is something similar to the effect of bariatric surgeries like sleeve gastrectomy and gastric balloon. Despite its undeniable results, some patients have experienced negative side effects including pancreas inflammation and kidney problems. 

OATZEMPIC: THE RECIPE

Influencers and everyone on Tiktok have been trying the Oatzempic. Mix some oats, water, and a squeeze of lemon, and it’s ready. You’ll feel already full even before consuming the whole cup. How does the recipe work? It helps you feel full for the longest time possible through slowing down the digestion process. So on the days when you just wanna binge-eat, the Oatzempic will be your savior. 

IS IT SAFE TO CONSUME?

The recipe is safe to use as long as you’re not intolerant to gluten or follow gluten-free diets, as the Oatzempic can be a real nightmare for people suffering from gluten intolerance. Also, it’s essential to mention that recipes like this will never be effective if you’re not following a healthy diet. 

IS IT REALLY A DUPE?

The Oatzempic drink, made from oats, water, and lime juice, has been popularized on TikTok with claims of weight loss, but it’s important to note that these claims lack scientific evidence. While oats and oatmeal can be part of a healthy diet and potentially aid in weight management, the comparison between the Oatzempic drink and weight loss medications like Ozempic is not supported by experts in the field.
