Oprah Regrets Her 1988 Liquid Diet

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: November 16, 2005
Filed at 8:40 p.m. ET

NEW YORK (AP) -- Oprah Winfrey, dressed in skinny jeans and a long-sleeve dark top, wheeled a wagon loaded with fat onto the set of her show in 1988 to represent her 67-pound weight loss.

She had lost the pounds with a liquid protein diet.

The 51-year-old talk-show host, who celebrated the 20th anniversary of her nationally syndicated ''The Oprah Winfrey Show'' on Monday, now says that show was her ''biggest, fattest'' mistake.

''I had literally starved myself for four months -- not a morsel of food -- to get into that pair of size 10 Calvin Klein jeans,'' Winfrey recalls.

''Two hours after that show, I started eating to celebrate -- of course, within two days those jeans no longer fit!''

In 1989, Winfrey acknowledged that she had regained 17 of the 67 celebrated pounds she had lost the previous year -- and her weight has continued to fluctuate since then.

Winfrey has released a six-disc DVD collection of her biggest moments and interviews during the past 20 years of her show, with net profits going to Oprah's Angel Network, a charitable foundation dedicated to helping educate and advance women and children around the world.

Oprah has been generous in sharing her struggles with weight management over the years. Except for being extremely talented, incredibly hard working, and a multi-gazillionaire, she's just like the rest of us!

I don't watch her show (I'm kind of hard-working myself) but I notice she isn't preaching her weight management strategy these days. I'm guessing it's a combination of low-carb eating and a very strenuous exercise routine--a daily regime that few people would be able to sustain.

The bottom line? Maintaining a healthy weight is, for many of us, a career all its own. Not for the fainthearted.

Go Oprah!

Thumbs up

Yes I also love Oprah for being so public about her weight loss struggles and making us realize that weight is something that a lot of people struggle with (even the wealthy successful celebs), so she is definitely an inspiration to me as well.

Who doesn't make faux pas and Oprah is no exception. What distinguishes her from the rest of the world is people pay to listen to her while the rest of us receive patted-yawns whenever we try to talk about problems. Do any of us remain 100% totally committed to our diet; I try but that's as close as I get but it is an honest try.

09.30 hours here and the Net is sluggish probably due to overload with offices etc coming on-line and hence double message (now obliterated)! Got to take the goodlady to hospital outpatient's this morning (minor matter) so in my absence talk among yourselves!
