Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham

Media guru Oprah Winfrey claims to have lost 26 pounds on a diet consisting of bread and water.

“I’ve lost 26 pounds and I have eaten bread every single day,” she said in a Weight Watchers commercial recently.

Oprah said she took spiritual advisor Deepak Chopra's 21-day meditation challenge called “Shedding the Weight: Mind, Body and Spirit," to help her drop the weight.

“Meditation is a way of progressively quieting the mind,” Chopra told ABC News. “We are also introducing the idea of shedding emotional baggage, which frequently is the cause of weight gain.”

He added: “Meditation decreases the levels of cortisol, which is a stress hormone. When you have stress, then you accumulate belly fat.”

Winfrey, 62, posted an Instagram photo of herself wearing a red dress and embracing longtime friend Stedman Graham on Valentines Day.

"Stepping out with my Valentine of almost 30 yrs!" she wrote in the photo caption.

The Power couple attended the star-studded wedding of 62-year-old music executive Jimmy Iovine to 37-year-old actress Liberty Ross on Saturday.

  • T3

    Say what?!?!? And she actually said that huh No ma'am!

  • Natasha Adams

    I am sick of Oprah. Everytime I see that commercial talking how she lost weight eating bread, I switch the channel or mute it. Oprah is only making more of peoples money and buying more homes with it. Since she announced she was buying Weight Watchers stock and starting the program, she has bought 2 additional homes with the money her tweets have made her. What people don't understand is that Oprah has chefs that can cook her the food to make up for eating the bread. I literally hate that commercial. People wake up and stop making this woman richer.

  • Natasha Adams

    I work out 5 days a week sometimes 6. Weight is not easy but you must also tone and train your muscles. People wake up, Oprah is only using you to get richer. Wake up and smell the bread.

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Taco Juice

    I did that once also...because I was broke. Sorry but as a member of Team Chunk, I can only stress the importance of balanced meals, especially as a person gets older. My mom does all this crazy stuff to lose weight (like rice and watermelon as a meal) only to go on a marathon food raid later.

  • Thatgirljd

    ...off topic....ya'll like Alabama Shakes?
    That lead singer, Brittany Howard is the bomb

  • soflystann

    Stedman should really consider a man weeve..that hairline screams Hello from the other side...

  • LibraGirlonly

    I'm not feeling Opeah anymore. I can't get over the picture of her tweeting saying she was taking the staff at O mag to Hawaii. I only saw two black faces and one was her bestie and someone else commented on the same thing.

  • Brownie

    She's probably plugging Sara Lee's 45 calorie bread (both slices are 45 I think.) Yeah, you CAN eat bread everyday but why would you. I can have but so many sammiches

  • Mel

    I tried meditation a few times it didn't work because I don't know how to quiet my mind . Kudos to her

  • 88

    Turn off the tv and loud music.

  • whitty hutton

    **falls out** ???

  • Genia W-m

    Oprah needs to stop those 'fad' diets. Now if she did it to cleanse that's one thing but I remember her liquid diet in the '80s where she went down to a 9/10 and gained it ALL + more back after resuming solid foods.

  • Genia W-m

    No, I don't know where the notion of eating bread was bad. I spoke to a nutritionist and she said she never understood that. Moderation is key for all things. Can't eat a loaf of bread and say you gained weight. LOL

  • Genia W-m

    Me either. I remember when they said she was a size 12. She was no more a size 12 than Mama June on Honey Boo Boo. Hahahaha Oprah's magazine covers for "O" always look photo shopped too.

  • Mona Lisa

    Oprah looks better thick. Her weight loss tends to age her face.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Oprahs a billionaire. She should just let the fat go where it wants.

  • Ssik am

    Me too. I discovered I have gluten-intolerance after doing an elimination diet. I had horrible back pains, bloating, and a host of other symptoms before giving it up and they return if I consume it.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    ALWAYS! Her art dept is A-1 with that!

  • Ssik am

    If you really want to lose weight permanently without depriving yourself the I would recommend trying The Paleo Diet. I lost 40 pounds in 3 months while eating a high fat/low carb diet. My focus/energy increased while my depression/anxiety decreased without the use of meds. Three really amazing books to read are: The Paleo Solution, Death By Food Pyramid, and Grain Brain. There is new research suggesting that consuming rains (specifically gluten) is related to a plethora of disorders/diseases ranging from Alzheimer's, autism, ADD/ADHD, anemia, certain cancers, multiple sclerosis, depression, etc. Wake up people and realize that doctors aren't in it to keep you healthy.. They are in it for profit. I've done a lot of dieting in my life ranging from vegan/vegetarian/low fat and none have quite impacted my life like this one has.

  • RoniV

    Hope he takes Lester Holt with him. His high head is distracting.

  • RoniV

    Something about that commercial with Oprah irks me to no end.

  • TheRealLee

    I think a network should do a tribute to just her and invite some of the giants in the business. Why allow the Grammy be the arbiter of such an honor. This acknowledgement, when, and how it should be done should not be dictated by them. Fuck them.

  • 1/8

    It irks you, because it's contrived, disingenuous... just like Oprah's "goodness and light" persona.

  • ???

    Wtf? ?ewwwwwwww!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I think she'll lose again. Her confidence is shot.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Oprah is still dieting.

    Bless her heart.

  • mzzz. miami

    you people believe anything. She is on Weight Watchers and she stated that she lost the pounds AND STILL CONTINUED TO EAT BREAD which is her favorite.

  • Kim

    Her diet is not bread and water.She simply said she lost weight despite eating some bread everyday.

  • Kim

    Delete

  • Kim

    I lost weight and I was still able to eat a piece of chocolate every day.So I guess that means I'm on a chocolate and water diet,LMAO.

  • soflystann

    lmmfao

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Thought I was trippin for a minute, glad mine eyes are not deceiving me. Speaking of eyes though.. what's going on with her eye area? I've always wondered that. She's a beautiful woman to me but her eye area has always puzzled me.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    LOL! I have never noticed her eyes before, but you have me examining her now.

  • Go Head With That

    I love bread....I hate that commercial. It's like she forgot her lines but remembered the cheddar bay biscuits

  • S. Williams

    I laughed LOL the EGO will have you forgetting about your SELF like..... kill yourself over ONE lost fight?!?!?!?!?!??!! She strikes me as one who has always been told she would never lose to anyone. She did not once get the speech that even the greatest fall but its how you fall and get back up that determines your true greatness. what a spoiled ass cry baby ass BRAT like WHO feels sorry for you??? WHOOOOOOOOO

  • S. Williams

    OPEN MOUTH CACKLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • B3autiful_Strang3r

    on WW you have to eat more than bread and water, you have to eat a certain amount of fruits/veggies/dairy per day. You eat well thought out meals, she is just emphasizing that she can incorporate her love of bread (in moderation) into her plan whereas on any other plan you probably couldn't do that.

  • B3autiful_Strang3r

    it's because she's loosing like 1 to 2 lbs. per week, it's not a quick fix type of program where you'll instantly see dramatic results, give her time, you'll see it . . . .
