Oprah’s had a life-long battle with her weight, and in 2020 she tried a different approach: a simple and sustainable diet called The OMD Plan, in which OMD stands for One Meal a Day.
This doesn’t mean eating a single daily meal, but rather choosing to eat one plant based meal per day. This change can improve your health, help you lose weight and positively impact the Planet.
The OMD Plan was created by Suzy Amis Cameron. After she and her husband (director James Cameron) went vegan, Cameron became an advocate for the plant-based eating. More research suggest that a plant-based diet is the healthiest diet on Earth.
But she found that many people were overwhelmed by the idea of becoming entirely plant-based overnight. But introducing just one plant-based meal a day, however, was doable. It’s very similar to a Flexitarian Diet, in that it doesn’t restrict the foods you can eat, but does encourage plant-forward eating.
Oprah started a 30-day OMD challenge – a simple and sustainable way to wat more plan-based foods and support a healthier Planet… and YOU.
“If you’ve been thinking about going vegetarian or vegan, I think this is a good way to lean into it where you don’t have to give up everything you’ve been eating your whole life in one day,” Winfrey tells Oprah Magazine.
Oprah’s documenting her 30-day journey through Instagram Stories on her personal account, and through IGTV on @OprahMagazine’s account.
