It is being reported that Oprah Winfrey is going to get a $12 million advance to write a fitness book with her personal trainer/nutritional guru Bob Greene. Unless this book will be a primer on how to yo-yo diet, or how NOT to design a reliable lifestyle program, there will be no reason to buy this book.
But millions of people will buy it anyway.
Greene and Oprah have been posing as fitness experts for years now despite the fact that Oprah has had zero success living a consistent, healthy lifestyle. Over the past several years Oprahâ€™s weight has been up and down more thanâ€¦more thanâ€¦well more than something that constantly goes up and down.
Too bad people are so blinded by her celebrity and donâ€™t realize that she and her guru are in no position to tell us how to eat, exercise, live etc. And shame on Oprah for not being content with her ability to sell people all kinds of other stuff. Like she really needs to branch out into this area, a subject that she knows so little about and has been so unsuccessful in dealing with.
Perhaps since Oprah has been a spectacular failure with her own weight, this is the way she deals with it. For all of her billions, she just canâ€™t get a handle on her weight and canâ€™t be happy with the way she looks. Having money doesnâ€™t improve a personâ€™s own body image, I guess.
Mark Twain once said, â€śStopping smoking is easy. Iâ€™ve done it a thousand times.â€ť But he was joking, or being clever and witty.
What Oprahâ€™s has been saying is â€śThese people know what theyâ€™re doing with regards to losing weight - even though it doesnâ€™t work for me - and you should buy their advice.â€ť Well she didnâ€™t actually say this, but her actions say it. You know, since her weight has been going up and down and up and down.
