Oprah declares bread and weight loss compatible
When a passionate Oprah Winfrey declared “I love bread!” in January in a 30-second video advertisement for Weight Watchers she set off a media firestorm. On Jan. 26, Ms. Winfrey tweeted to her 30 million followers — “Eat bread. Lose weight. Whaaatttt?”
A few weeks later, Julie Miller Jones, professor emeritus of nutrition at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minn., in commentary prepared on behalf of the Wheat Foods Council, said Ms. Winfrey’s claims are supported by nutritional science.
