Known for his intense diet and exercise routine, Mark Wahlberg disagrees with Hollywood’s obsession with Ozempic and similar weight-loss drugs.
“It’s to each his own, but I encourage people to eat right and exercise,” the “Ted” actor privately told Page Six at Tao’s grand opening Saturday at the Cathédrale at the Aria Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
“This is so much more [of] a lifestyle change. You will be amazed at what you can accomplish when you are willing to do the work.”
Wahlberg, 51, added that maintaining one’s health “the old-fashioned way” was his choice because it was the “most sustainable” way.
“It will give you longevity,” he said.
While not a fan of Ozempic, the “Entourage” executive producer has stated that he will not judge anyone who chooses to use the controversial injections.
“Everyone has their own path. I wouldn’t knock anyone out for making their own choices,” he said. I’m in that too.”
Wahlberg explained that he’s seen many people achieve fitness goals they “didn’t think of”. [were] possible,” he adds, “it comes from working hard, eating right, and also placing great emphasis on recovery.”
Ozempic is a Type II diabetes drug, but its active ingredient, semaglutide, can cause loss of appetite, which has caused many stars to turn to the vaccine for rapid weight loss.
Wahlberg, who has transformed his body for different roles many times throughout his acting career, takes no shortcuts to maintain a rough physique. To exercise, he usually wakes up before dawn and exercises several times a day. He also eats a clean diet with an emphasis on high-protein foods.
And the father of four shared that his kids are starting to follow in his fitness trail.
“My daughter, Grace, is a horse rider now. She is rising up and gaining strength to control a really powerful animal, so now it’s working she, ”she said.
Wahlberg proudly praised the 13-year-old for having “discipline.”
“He looks a lot like me. He’s super disciplined and if that’s something his coach wants from him to advance in the world of riding, then he does it literally every day.” “He tells me there are certain times I can’t go to the gym, but now at least I’m allowed to watch him work out, which is cool.”
“It’s incredible to see,” he added.
The Oscar nominee also noted that their son “did a little bit” with exercise, and that he and his wife, Rhea Durham, did “a lot together” high-intensity F45 Training.
The “Departed” star and Durham, 44, have been married for 13 years and have four children: Ella, 19, Michael, 17, Brendan, 14, and Grace.
