During an appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show,” the Sixers and Suns legend Charles Barkley revealed that he is down over 60 pounds since he started taking the weight-loss drug Mounjaro.
“I started taking this drug called Mounjaro about six months ago,” Barkley said.
“It’s been amazing. My doctor, she is amazing. I know a lot of people take Ozempic, but my doctor prefers Mounjaro. I started at 352, and I’m down to 290.
“It’s been great, I’ve been starting to feel like a human being – not a fat-ass anymore. I want to lose – I can’t get to my playing weight, which was 250, but I’m gonna get to 270. My doctor told me, ‘There’s a lot of fat young people. There aren’t a lot of fat old people. They’re all dead!’”
