Week One: Wednesday I just cleaned my dinner plate, down to the last grain of brown rice left under my oh-so-deliciously seasoned soy chicken. I can not believe how tasty, spicy and wonderful it all was. I'm ever more surprised at how I don't miss anything and feel so satisfied at every meal. Bravo to Tal! By Day 4, I'm usually climbing the walls or craving sweets—or ready to throw in the towel on any other diet plan. I'm a little nervous about the weekend. Tal cooks our last meal for the week tomorrow, and I've got to go to Las Vegas for Tina and Cher. Vegas and vegan don't seem to mix. — Oprah
Kathy Freston's Comments: When traveling, order a hearty soup (lentil, minestrone, tomato) from the room service menu and ask if they can prepare something using every vegetable they have in the kitchen. Try oatmeal for breakfast—it's so easy. It's also a good idea to travel with some protein powder that you can shake up in a bottle of water to make sure you're meeting your nutritional needs.
