“In January 2022, I weighed myself in at 350 pounds and I said, ‘No. This has to change’. In December 2022, I weighed myself in before the New Year rang in and I was 251 pounds, so that’s 99 pounds in a year. I was pre-diabetic. It totally helped. I think the FDA should really consider looking into it and seeing it as an option for weight loss. Obesity is the number one cause of death in this country. It’s fantastic, I love it.” – George Santos, speaking on Meghan McCain’s podcast. In August, the New York Post “overheard” Santos making a similar claim at a party where he also claimed to have studied jiu-jitsu and could therefore “beat Romney’s butt” in a cage match.
