Today I’m joined by Ragen Chastain – a remarkable speaker, writer, and thought leader in weight science, weight stigma, and health.

With all the talk about Ozempic and Wegovy, I knew we needed to do a deep dive here on the Body Nerd Show Podcast and have an expert to guide us through.

And Ragen 100% delivered on both fronts.

Whether you’re curious about these medications, interested in weight science, or simply looking to expand your knowledge, this episode offers valuable insights and perspectives.

As I’ve said on the show time and time again – my goal is to provide you with as much information as possible so you can make an informed decision for yourself.

So enjoy today’s episode with Ragen Chastain!
