Five weeks ago, Oprah promised to lose 15 pounds by President Barack Obama's inauguration. Did she do it? She asked trainer Bob Greene to whip her into shape in just a week! Possible on The Biggest Loser but in real life was this fete achieved?
Her trainer, Bob Greene, told OK! magazine: “Oprah knows the rules. I have five weeks. She’ll be aggressive and lose the weight in a healthy way… She needs an hour of cardiovascular exercise six days a week. Crunches are done every day. That’s the core exercise.” He’s also planning to throw in 15-20 minutes of strength training on three to four days a week.
According to ThatsFit.com, 38.3 percent of readers thought Oprah would be able to lose the weight. Another 30 percent said they believed she would not. So, now that the day is over, what do you think? How do you feel she looked?
My only issue with Oprah Winfrey and weight is that she's an immediate icon, saleswoman for every book she reads, program she tries however even when the diets fail people still follow their leader Oprah. Would you follow Richard Simmons if he still weighed 300 lbs? Everyone is convinced that she knows all the answers. Well folks, I'm sorry to say it but she doesn't hold the weight loss answer. She is a true testament that you can know all the facts yet lack the will power and energy to see them through.
My trainer, Stephen Cabral and I decided to modify what Oprah said she was doing for a workout in the January edition of O Magazine. You know, the one she talks about being over 200 lb! Here is our workout video that we think is better than Oprah's and we also think she should take our advice into account!
