Oprah says “you can eat bread and still lose weight”
The American talk show host tweeted a link to a video, which told her 31M followers that she eats bread every day and has still lost weight.
The media mogul – who is a spokeswoman and part owner of Weight Watchers – sent the social media world into a frenzy on Tuesday when she tweeted a promotional video for the weight loss company, professing her love for bread, and announcing she's lost 26 lbs.
In the video, Winfrey says: "I love bread. I love bread. I now just manage it, so I don't deny myself bread, I have bread every day."
The words Winfrey tweeted to accompany the video were: “Eat bread. Lose weight. Whaaatttt? #ComeJoinMe”
An hour after Winfrey shared her story on Twitter, Weight Watchers shares climbed slightly over $2 a share. Since Winfrey owns roughly six million shares, the surge in share prices made the celeb $12 million.
