On February 1st, Oprah and 378 of her employees decided to try a positive diet change... the team went vegan for a week. The result? Success! Oprah and her staff lost a total of 444 pounds that week.
One of the most impressive success stories came from video editor Rich, who lost 11 pounds during the week. He says he stuck to the diet and opted for vegetables and whole grains over simple carbohydrates.
By the third day, Rich says he felt better than he had in 10 years. Before the challenge, Rich says he was taking six to eight antacids a day and suffering from migraine headaches. "And let's qualify it, I ate horribly," he says. "I ate poor foods. Now I don't. And I lost 11 pounds."
As a follow-up, the Oprah channel's cafeteria will observe Meatless Mondays.
