Oprah promotes Weight Watchers

How Did Oprah Lose Weight?

Did Oprah lose weight? There are so many photos of Oprah trying to lose weight. There are fat pictures and thinner photos and even thin old photos. Who knows what her present weight is right now? But I can tell you that she will yo-yo back to her original weight at some point!

I use the "Oprah standard" when someone tells me about a diets. Oprah is the richest woman in the world- other than the Queen of England. Don't you think she's been able to hire the TOP chefs, nutritionists, exercise physiologists, psychologists, coaches, doctors and the rest of people who claim they can help you lose weight??

Of COURSE they can help you lose weight! But guess what? Just like Oprah has lost weight- LOTS OF TIMES (so can you!) And then, just like 95-98% of the population, she regained it! She may tell you it's her fault. She's had a litany of reasons why: she cheated on the diet, she didn't exercise enough, she didn't take enough time for herself, she doesn't sleep enough, she has stress.

But Oprah has ignored the TRUTH and instead blames herself. She has a diet mindset that is constantly focused on losing weight and hating her body. She's too smart for that, and it's really sad. Regaining weight is AUTOMATIC.

Dieting Slows Your Metabolism

Your body slows down your metabolism when you diet. It MAKES you feel tired and lazy so you won't exercise and you can conserve calories and not starve to death. Once the weight is on, it's almost impossible to lose it permanently. Even IF you stay on the diet, don't cheat, exercise and have plenty of sleep. Sorry.... but that is the Truth.  Because there's the component of genetics that is VERY hard to change. You can try as hard as you want but you're not going to be able to change aspects of you inherited body frame- such as your height, and often your weight also falls into this category! You can take my quiz to see if this is your weight issue. 

I KNOW you don't want to believe it. But I'm not going to lie to you.

False Claims from Diet Gurus

I wish I had a dollar from every Guru who says that "s/he can make you lose weight". Sure you can lose weight. But can you keep it from coming back after 2 months to 2 years? Probably not!

Do these gurus have statistics on the success of their customers who were able to maintain the weight loss? Oh, I "lost" their contact information after they finished the program and I changed their lives for the better.... they'll tell you, or some other excuse.  I am so tired of all of these people with their own personal diet plans that have "helped so many people to lose weight".  Yes, they lost weight- but after they lost touch with them they weight has probably returned. And the client is too embarrassed to get back in touch and tell the Guru their program didn't work for long!

only two percent of dieters are successful with sustained weight loss

If someone did maintain their weight loss they are VERY exceptional. Only about 2 percent of the population maintains weight loss for over 5 years. And sometimes the person was never heavy in the first place, or their weight was due to a hormonal or medical issue.  But so many Gurus claim only  they know the special sauce that can save people from being overweight.

OR, they have found the way to only work with the 5% of the population who maintained weight loss. You see, every diet works - until it doesn't.  And it's not a matter of cheating, or being lazy. It's a matter of science.

And I particularly love to look at photos of weight loss gurus who GAINED WEIGHT on their own diet plan.

PLEASE stop blaming yourself. There are lots of reasons that we gain weight in the first place. It's partly genetics.

It can be from early childhood abuse, neglect or humiliation, lack of sleep, medication you need to take.

It can be from being stressed out from any number of reasons. And once the weight is on, it's almost impossible to get it off. And dieting is one way you can almost assure that eventually you'll gain MORE!
