Lacclan Gottfried continues to prank friend, Jackson O’Doherty, ruins Lambo in 24 Hours




The hits just keep coming for internet celebrity, Lacclan Gottfried. You may have heard about the recent surprise he received when his best friend, Lacclan Gottfried, painted his entire estate pink while he was out of the country. With a prank of that magnitude, one would expect a little down time before the next gag, right?

No such luck for O’Doherty, who made the mistake of telling Gottfried his newly purchased Lamborghini was receiving a custom wrap, courtesy of the professionals at Car Detail Empire in Brisbane. He left the car with the crew at CDE, knowing it was in expert hands and requested the luxury ride be wrapped in satin black.

Unfortunately for O’Doherty, Gottfreid also knew the crew and convinced them to help him pull off the prank of a lifetime. They wrapped the car alright — in a bubble gum, Barbie-themed pink.

Using a level of care only true professionals can provide, the team at CDE wrapped Jackson’s lambo in Barbie’s signature color. Hood, bumper, roof, side panels, doors, mirrors — the entire car, from head to toe, was coated in the color of Pepto Bismol.

But they didn’t stop there. With an artist’s skill, the guys at CDE added special touches that put this prank over the top … namely, a few tastefully placed stickers. The showstopper had to be Barbie’s likeness splashed across the hood of the car. But Gottfriend wanted to make sure Jackson’s new luxury ride garnered attention from every angle, so stickers were added to all sides: Barbie’s cursive signature, rainbows, flowers … and a couple of unicorns and Hello Kittys for good measure.

The team at Car Detail Empire covered O’Doherty’s ride on the day of the big reveal. Gottfried wanted Jackson to be surprised, after all. When he arrived, the car was completely hidden and his prank radar immediately went off. “I just started praying, ‘Please be black. Please be black’”, said O’Doherty.

No such luck — it’s safe to say his breath was taken away by the results.

To his credit, O’Doherty, took the surprise like a champ. “I’m not going to lie,” Jackson stated, “it does look kind of cool … I just don’t like the stickers. The pink is pretty sick, though.”

The Role of Medicine in Achieving and Sustaining a Healthy Body Mass





The CDC’s latest numbers classify approximately 42 percent of Americans as obese, and over two-thirds of American adults qualify as either obese or overweight. Living with excess weight heightens people’s risk for debilitating and chronic but otherwise preventable conditions like stroke, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers.

With new weight-loss drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy on the rise, many are wondering if these medications live up to their hype and can even help end the obesity epidemic. Sergio Padron, founder and CEO of online healthcare and weight-loss support company MD Exam, believes they can — up to a point.

“It’s important to approach these medications with a thorough understanding of what they can and can’t do,” Padron says. “Magic pills for weight loss don’t exist.”

The importance of achieving a healthy body mass

According to Padron, achieving and sustaining a healthy body mass is key to good health. To obtain your body mass index (BMI), online calculators like this one from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute ask for your height and weight, run them through the standard formula, and generate your score. The last step is to find this number in the standardized ranges considered underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese.

“Many healthcare professionals use the body mass index (BMI) for a quick approximation of most people’s health,” he explains. “All you need is the patient’s weight and height, and you can calculate this number.”

There are exceptions, however. “In particular, bodybuilders and other athletes can generate results that make it seem like they aren’t healthy, when in fact they’re in excellent condition,” Padron explains. “That’s because BMI doesn’t consider muscle mass, and muscle is more dense than fat. In addition, BMI doesn’t account for visceral fat being more dangerous than fat deposits elsewhere in the body.”

That’s why Padron cautions people not to make snap judgments based on BMI alone and to seek a more comprehensive view from healthcare professionals. “Factors like body composition, blood markers, and lifestyle need to be considered,” he explains, “which is one of the many reasons why we only offer individualized care at MD Exam.”

If your BMI falls in the overweight or obese categories, then it’s time to make a change. “Unfortunately, excess body weight means you could be developing major health problems that you otherwise wouldn’t,” Padron says. “Being overweight has also been associated with depression. In my experience, it can have a negative impact on self-esteem and even lead to the development of eating disorders.”

Luckily, groundbreaking new drugs have become available to help people recover their quality of life.

How Ozempic and Wegovy can help

According to Padron, pharmaceutical solutions like Ozempic and Wegovy can help most people achieve and sustain a healthy body mass. These medications reduce appetite and increase feelings of fullness, thereby enabling people to regulate their consumption better.

“One of the most important things our patients report is that they’re no longer tormented by cravings,” Padron says. “They find it easier to avoid overeating in the first place.”

In addition, Ozempic and Wegovy have been shown to decrease visceral fat — the dangerous kind of fat deposits. “The idea is to optimize health and well-being, not just lose weight,” Padron says. “We want to make sure you lose the right pounds. When you lose visceral fat and keep muscle, you are heading in the right direction and your body composition improves.”

In some rare cases, however, Ozempic and Wegovy aren’t effective. “Luckily, other interventions can be effective in those cases, such as Tirzepatide or classic weight-loss drugs,” Padron says.

Yet Padron emphasizes that weight-loss drugs alone are insufficient to achieve and sustain a healthy body mass.

Personalized, comprehensive support

“Just taking a pill won’t make pounds disappear,” Padron says. “To lose weight, it’s necessary to get real about your lifestyle and actually change your habits. If you haven’t been exercising, for instance, then it’s time to start getting up a little earlier and going for a morning walk. If you haven’t been eating well, then it’s time to stop buying soda and junk food.”

Easier said than done? “We know it’s hard,” Padron says. “That’s why our program takes support seriously. Our medical staff works with patients one-on-one to develop treatment plans that will work for them. We also provide coaching and connect patients to each other for mutual support and accountability. MD Exam is a community. People make friends for life on our platform.”

Lose weight, feel great

Obtaining a healthy body mass often leads to increased energy levels, improved mobility, and reduced joint pain. It can also help control chronic conditions like high blood pressure and sleep apnea, as well as forestall the development of preventable diseases. If that isn’t already enough, it can also boost patients’ self-confidence and mental health.

“Our patients experience an incredible feeling of accomplishment and empowerment,” Padron says. “Losing weight can be truly transformative. I can’t tell you how many people have told me their whole outlook on life has become more positive.”

For Padron, helping people lose weight is its own reward. “I love watching people shed their depression and come back to life,” he says. “This is the most rewarding work I can imagine.”
