As a Valentine’s Day special, Oprah Winfrey devoted her entire show to weight loss – answering all the questions she is constantly asked.
There aren’t actually many secrets. Oprah worked closely with personal trainer Bob Greene – author of the book “Get With The Program“. It is a good book – going through the gradual changes of getting your diet right, and incorporating a strong fitness aspect. Bob Greene himself says:
This is not a diet book.
This is not a fitness book.
This is a book about moving – in the right direction. It’s a book about getting real about getting back into shape, physically and emotionally, realistically and gradually.
What about Oprah’s diet? Oprah has long been a proponent of Bob Greene’s methods such as eating no refined carbs. That’s just a small piece to the puzzle. The diet follows the general principles of; increased lean protein, moderate healthy fats, and reduced refined carbs (not to be confused with a very-low-carb diet).
So there you have it – an excellent fitness component, and a clean balanced diet – the keys to sustainable weight loss. Like it or not, exercise and fitness are a part of any weight controlled lifestyle.
Bob Greene released his new program – The Best Life Diet. This, again, is heavily endorsed by Oprah. The book even contains a full weeks worth of Oprah’s meal plans.
