How to Eat on Oprah's Boot Camp
You didn't think there wouldn't be any food rules in Boot Camp, did you? Not to worry—we promise, you'll still manage to feel full and satisfied.
  • Overall, eat lean protein, two fruits a day, and all the green vegetables you want.
  • Keep the fat low (for salad dressing, you can use a little olive oil with lemon and garlic).
  • The main rule: eliminate the white stuff—bread, pasta, potatoes, rice—as well as candy, pastry, cookies, cake. "A few people might get evil on me," Oprah says, knowingly—sugar deprivation can turn even a saint nasty!
  • For the first month, stay away from whole grains (brown rice, oatmeal, whole wheat cereals and breads). After that, you can slowly add them back.
  • The other big rule: You must stop eating three hours before bedtime. Do just this, Oprah says, and you'll lose weight.
  • During the 12 weeks, you get to choose three days when you can allow yourself either alcohol (a glass of wine, maybe two; a cocktail) or some refined carbs (one piece of cake, one slice of bread, one bowl of pasta. The key word is one).
