Oprah Goes Vegan!

Oprah Goes Vegan!

Oprah Winfrey is going vegan for a 21-day detox plan, inspired by Kathy Freston‘s book “Quantum Wellness”.

Oprah and three pals from her production company will be swearing off meat, caffeine, sugar, gluten and alcohol. You can follow Oprah‘s journey at her blog on

“This 21-day cleanse gives me a chance to think about [eating] differently and see what my attachments are to certain kinds of foods – and what I’m willing to do to change,” she wrote on Sunday (day one). “Don’t know if I’m going to feel better or worse, but I’m willing to try to see if my body at least feels differently.”

“Wow, wow, wow! I never imagined meatless meals could be so satisfying.” she added on day two. “I had been focused on what I had to give up — sugar, gluten, alcohol, meat, chicken, fish, eggs, cheese. ‘What’s left?’ I thought. Apparently a lot. I can honestly say every meal was a surprise and a delight, beginning with breakfast — strawberry rhubarb wheat-free crepes.”

Please. She’s nothing more than the poster child for every fad diet that’s come and gone the last 20 years.

# 2…. That was mean…. But anyways, I’m a vegetarian and giving up meat was one of the hardest things I had to do, but I’m healthier and have more energy because I changed my diet.

Go Oprah and good luck with your detox…..

I’m sure it’s easy to be sugar-, gluten-, alcohol-, meat-, chicken-, fish-, eggs- and cheese-free when you have a personal chef to fix all your meals for you.

# 5


I agree with you, and she has all the money in the world to find alternatives.

# 6

Wow! What’s next? Oprah takes a poopy? Talk about jumping the shark.

# 7

The woman is too full of herself, slim or fat.

# 8

Why doesn’t she just accept that she’s a whale? Even if she does lose some weight she’ll gain it back plus some.

# 9

hey, when you’ve got somone to do the shopping and the cooking, anything is possible. must be nice….

mmm yummie, food that takes like crap.
Tomorrow she’ll be eating grass, just like those good ol’ vegans.

ha ha Mickey.. I agree I am sooo over Oprah. enough already. I could careless what she eats , reads, likes etc,,,,

Hahahahahaha, what a copy cat!

Robin Quivers on The Howard Stern Show did the 21 pounds in 21 days detox diet over 6 months ago. Ron De Luz is the author of her book and it’s very good (I bought it). Robin became a vegan for real. So someone tell Oprah this has been done already.

Oprah needs to stop these friggin’ fad diets. Enough! She’s too old for this.

Some individuals hate her here does not take away from Oprah’s influence on American society. What Howard Stern’s Robin did may have noticed by few junkies but when Oprah does something America take notice… Look at what she did for some book sales!!!

It is not difficult to give up lot of these things, but caffeine? Is there any alternative for that if you want to stay awake…

This woman will end up dead like Luther Vandross from all the weight gains and losses she has gone through over the years. She needs a head doc to give her some counseling.

I just don’t care for her anymore.

Good for her that she’s doing it but…yeah, with that kind of money? Not very difficult to pull off. Someone let me know when Oprah learns how to stop eating altogether and still live healthily. Then we could save the planet. They trashed her recently on

I totally agree, how easy is it too eat so healthy like this when you have all the money in the world and a personal chef? Get over yourself Oprah, you’re not God.

I don’t think I could do it.

I’m sure she’ll lose weight

Yawn. Oprah and diet. Who really cares? She’ll drop a few and several months down the line, she’ll be fat again looking for the next fad diet. Give it up.

wow oprah i love you but ur tottaly going to far for some attention..

@4 exactl

she isnt that nice or important to be obsessing over her…she should go count her billions…..

#2 Veganism isn’t a fad diet. I’m not going to bother explaining but just google it. You’re ignorant and proud of it. I think Oprah is ridiculous though and just does whatever she thinks is “in.” And #10, you’re even more ignorant and proud of it. You’ve obviously never eaten well-made vegan food. It tastes better, it feels better, and IS better for you than the SAD. I’m vegan and I’ve never once eaten grass. You’re an idiot.

Haha vegans don’t eat grass! Silly. I’m a vegetarian, and I’m proud of oprah. Who knows, she might even become a vegan permanently
