Why Women Who Watch Oprah Are Still Fat
By: Kevin Larrabee, CSCS
As I returned from Cressey Performance today after a tough upper body workout I unpacked my groceries from Trader Joe’s. Naturally I turned on the television to see what was on. Oprah was on and I saw Gwyneth Paltrow talking about her diet and how she is so thin. I was intrigued so I kept watching as she told the millions of viewers that she only eats animals with fewer than four feet. WHAT?
Then came the Tracy Anderson workouts and I literally said to myself, “This is bullshit folks.” Why don’t people get it that this is some of the dumbest advice ever? Don’t lift over 3 pounds because you will get bulky? Hmmm… I am pretty sure that I have female clients that deadlift over 100 pounds, bench with 30 pound dumbbells, and have become leaner, stronger, and love the way they look. Watch the video below, it is from http://www.oprah.com/media/20080828_tows_workout
Seriously Oprah, you are doing a huge disservice to the millions of women that watch your show and need to lose weight!
I fear for the lives of those who will run into Leigh Peele after she watches this video. Stay clear of her for at least 24 hours.
