What’s Oprah Winfrey’s weight loss secret? A new Weight Watchers ad features Oprah Winfrey talking about how she lost 26 pounds eating bread every day.
The secret to this astounding weight loss story is, as you suspect the Weight Watchers program.
There are two weight loss apps that Weight Watchers offers to users, and that Oprah Winfrey likely used to help her “manage” her love for bread and what she eats.
In a tweet, complete with video professing her love for bread, Oprah Winfrey invites users to #ComeJoineMe in a weight loss program that lets users manage what they eat with an app and a website.
Although this is clearly an ad, there is no arguing results, and Oprah Winfrey’s weight loss of 26 pounds is a feat.

Oprah Winfrey Weight Loss Apps
Here is a look at the two weight loss apps Oprah Winfrey likely used to help her achieve this goal. Although Oprah didn’t specifically mention these apps, both are a part of the Weight Watchers weight loss plan.
Weight Watchers App
The flagship solution to managing your cravings and what you eat on Weight Watchers is the Weight Watchers app that uses SmartPoints to make choosing what to eat each day, and accounting for splurges, easier.
You must be a member of Weight Watchers to use the app. You can search for food by name or you can scan a barcode to get instant information. Instead of counting calories and other nutritional information you only need to track the point value that boils this down to something that is easier to track.
Weight Watchers Fitbreak App
A companion app is the Fitbreak app that challenges you to build short 1-minute fitbreaks into your day.
The app will alert you throughout the day with small active tasks you can complete in a minute to boost your activity level. By default the app suggests 20 fitbreaks, but you can move this up or down based on your time.
Download Fitbreak for iPhone to find time to move in your busy schedule.
If you want to use these weight loss apps you will need to join Weight Watchers online or meetings. You can join for free through the middle of March, after that it is $19.95 a month. There is currently a promotion to get a refund on your first two months of paid membership if you lose at least 10 pounds.
