Oprah drives me crazy. She is the bane of my exsistence. Many of my family and friends SWEAR by whatever she says....ughhhh, makes me crazy. I have heard her contradict herself so many times...it has been years since I watched her show. Then only thing good to come outta the Oprah show was Dr. Oz.
As far as the tea drinking thing goes, I make a gallon sized pitcher of regular old iced tea every day. I lightly sweeten it with agave nectar (a ordorless and tasteless cactus syrup found in most health food stores). I go through a whole pitcher every day...and because it is sweetened with agave...no negative influence on my insulin. I am convinced that this simple change is what has kicked off my weight loss. I was drinking TONS of soda before and just switching to the tea is what shed my first 11 pounds...and it went quick too. Now of course I am going to start exercising 5 days a week, at least that's my plan. Hopefully that will keep the weight falling off.

I love tea and I do believe that it has some benefits for health and weight loss - obviously tea is a healthier choice than a can of sugary soda, but I also agree that she most likely has a personal chef that cooks her meals for her along with a fitness coach. I know if I had her pocket book those would be the first two things I would invest in.. you know, after paying off all my debt. ;)

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.

I am afraid to even try these kind of tea's. I take meds. for diabetes, heart problems, blood pressure etc. You just never know what these "herbs" are going to do.
Perhaps Oprah does a "grab and go" on the lipo machine! tee hee

Watching salt intake also trying not to buy foods that have high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients I put it on the Do Not Buy List as it is too processed.

LISTEN TO THIS:LATEST NEWS
Oprah's Weight-Loss Recipe!Oprah swears by the fat-loss and health benefits of daily tea drinking.

Says Oprah, "A cup of tea infuses you with antioxidants instead of the wallop of sugar you get in a can of soda."

Oprah herself drinks tea daily and has noticed amazing weight-loss and health benefits. Today she is looking better than ever, thanks in large part to her regular tea drinking!


*****i do agree however that tea can help ASSIST in healthy weight loss......but what the heck, does she think we gonna believe that she lost 100lbs just drinkin tea, im sayin'she has BIG BUCKS, MULA,CHEDDER,MONEY.... DO SHE THINK WE BELIVE THAT.. wow.........anything to make a dollar. she goes on to state: "my life is to hectic for exercise and watching what i eat, i have to grab and go "......

like i said ......"YEAH RITE".(WE WERE NOT BORN YESTURDAY)

THE CONTRADICTION:****ON HER SHOW AND IN HER "O" MAGAZINE SHE HAS A WHOPPING AMOUNT OF FITNESS TIPS THAT SHE CLAIMS TO DO AT HOME.... HEY SOMEONE'S A LIAR...

AND I THINK ITS "OPRAH". am i the only one that feels this way?
