Regardless of who you are, where you live, which religion you practice or how
much money you have, the teachings of the Buddha should be known.
Much like Oprah, Buddha (before he became the Buddha) had everything but what
he did not have is what he really wanted. Oprah obviously wants to lose
her excess weight and even her billions of dollars does not seem to be helping
Learning the teachings of the Buddha and the simple concept of mindfulness is
one of the top 5 ways for Oprah Winfrey to lose weight.
For over 10 years Art Smith has been the "personal chef" for Oprah Winfrey.
It is a long time to maintain a professional relationship and if Oprah wants to
lose weight, a change is necessary.
While you cannot put 100% of the blame on the chef, there is no doubt Oprah
would benefit from a change in the type of chef who prepares her food.
There are many different types of personal chefs and Oprah needs a specialist
in making healthy, clean food which is low in calories more importantly than
high on taste.
Even if Art Smith is the right chef for the job, professional relationships
usually become stagnant after a while and Oprah should take the initiative and
find someone who more suits her goals.
3. Hire a Real Personal Trainer
Compatibility is Key with Personal Trainers
You may have seen Oprah's latest workouts in your favorite issue of Fitness &
Fiction magazine or seen her latest interview with her trainer on her show but
her past experience has obviously not helped in the long run.
The problem with any personal trainer who works with Oprah is her celebrity.
Celebrity personal trainers most likely specialize in treating, rather than
training celebrities to get results.
This makes sense because a paycheck is what puts money on the table and pays
The best help for Oprah in her quest to lose her excess weight is to hire a
personal trainer who is not used to training celebrities. A personal
trainer who is able to treat her like one of the millions of average people in
the US trying to lose weight.
Oprah needs a personal trainer who is hard on her and does not put up with
any super-rich celebrity excuses. Oprah needs a trainer who is a hardcore
down to the bone fitness freak.
2. Kick it Old School
Believe it or Not, Oprah Winfrey has Not always been a Gazillionaire
At her peak Oprah weighed over 200 pounds. While it may almost be the most
difficult to do, Oprah needed to get back to her roots (no pun intended).
If Oprah really wants to lose weight and keep it off, 5-star candlelight
dinners with Stedman should become a thing of the past.
Oprah should analyze her diet and activities and think about what would be
different if she were the same person struggling to get an acting job years ago.
As she has proven before, it is not impossible to take some time off and head to a fitness
retreat or simply take a vacation to dedicate to her own health and physical
fitness while avoiding expensive gourmet calories.
Sacrificing some Advertising Revenue is Necessary for Oprah to Lose her
Even the casual viewer of the Oprah Winfrey show sees dozens if not hundreds
of advertisements for the latest "miracle," or "secret" breakthrough in dietary
supplements or diets.
And that is if the subject of the show does not involve the subject.
Oprah is most likely bombarded with hundreds of these products a day trying to
get her endorsement.
Oprah should take the same approach that everyone else should which is to
realize that the reason why there are so many "miracle" weight loss type
supplement is because none of them really work for the long term.
The Top way for Oprah Winfrey to lose weight is to never again even think
about another diet supplement, or fad diet and get back to basics which is a
physically active lifestyle and healthy nutrition.
