Oprah Winfrey has reportedly lost 25 pounds in six weeks after struggling publicly with her weight issues. The 58-year-old media mogul has kept a low profile since stepping away from the stage to focus on her OWN network.
How did Oprah lose 25 pounds in such a short span of time? Sources say a new chef is apparently making her low-calorie meals that consist of fruits, vegetables, fish, chicken, and lean meat.
Oprah Winfrey has shared her battle with losing weight and has always been very real about the problem. She did have a medical problem with her thyroid -- which regulates metabolism. She also took to yo-yo dieting, which exasperated her overweight condition.
Over the years Oprah learned to accept herself for who she was and decided not to let her weight bother her, but she's someone who always wants to be the best she can be for herself. She admitted that food was a comfort for her the same way an addict leaned on drugs. Food soothed her and eased stress. Now she has a lifestyle she feels she can live with that doesn't feel restrictive. The 25-pound weight loss for Oprah is a great achievement for her and it definitely inspires her fans.
