    There is an element to the GLP-1 agonist story that is getting very little attention. What is happening with apparently normal weight individuals who seek these wonder drugs? Join us as we grind up the beans on this enlightening episode of The Health Mastery Café where we explore the complex world of GLP-1 agonists like Ozempic, not just as a weight-loss solution but through the lens of body image and mental health.
    In this special episode, we're honored to have Dr. Yalda Safai, a board-certified psychiatrist and seasoned TV contributor, who will shed light on the intriguing effects of these medications on individuals with normal BMIs. Despite their ineligibility based on the criteria, the allure of weight loss drives a significant interest across various demographics. Dr. Yalda Safai discusses the psychological implications and societal pressures that might drive individuals towards these medications.
    Dr. Dave addresses clinical considerations, spotlighting groups for whom GLP-1 agonists might pose risks. Furthermore, he passionately advocates against the stigmatization of low BMI individuals who express interest in these drugs and addresses the controversy surrounding the current supply shortages.
    This episode promises a deep dive into the ramifications of weight loss drugs beyond the scale, fostering a conversation that juxtaposes medical insight with societal impacts. Whether you're a healthcare professional, someone considering these treatments, or just intrigued by the topic, this discussion will offer valuable perspectives on an increasingly relevant subject.
    Join us, as we unravel the narratives behind the headlines and explore the intersection of health, society, and self-perception.

Fun, Motivational, and Informational

I am so moved by these podcasts and the variety of programs led by Dr. Dave that I decided to write my first ITunes review in support of the Health Mastery Cafe podcast. I believe that Dr. Dave will bring an element of fun and adventure while simultaneously providing significant health-related information to the listeners, in an effort to promote the adoption of a healthier lifestyle. This is an excellent vehicle that is engineered to spread the health message with the hope of changing the outlooks/perceptions of many on health. Also, this podcast will reveal that achieving one's health goals can be fun, realistic, and achievable. Overall, I wholeheartedly support this podcast and programs; I look forward to hearing more in the future! Well done Dr. Dave!!!
