This Is What Oprah Eats in a Day (It Helped Her Lose 40 Pounds)
By Brittany Burhop Fallon, Beauty Director |
Oprah, Oprah, Oprah. We want to know all of her favorite things—the latest book she couldn't put down, her best-loved bubble bath or her "usual" breakfast—all the time. And when it comes to her diet, we know she has access to the best chefs and the healthiest foods, so her recommendations never go unnoticed.
Thousands of women want the inside scoop on Oprah's daily routine, so when Weight Watchers revealed this list of foods she eats using Weight Watchers' new Freestyle points system (Oprah says it’s "more flexible and satisfying than ever"), we had to share it. Not only do the media mogul's go-to picks look delicious, but they also seem fairly easy to make yourself. And with Oprah's weight loss reaching 40 pounds using this method, it can't hurt to give it a try.
Scroll through to see what it's like to eat like the leading lady herself—her mix of meals and snacks totals 21 SmartPoints—and take note of any recipes that catch your eye so you can be on your way to "living your best life."
