Oprah Winfrey Weight Loss

While recently on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show, Oprah reportedly claimed that she was leaving WeightWatchers after almost 10 years in order to “be able to talk about whatever I want to talk about” when it comes to weight loss.

Oprah went viral late last year when it was revealed that she uses a weight loss drug during an interview with People.

What Does Oprah Take for Weight Loss?

It was alleged that Oprah was using Ozempic but there is no concrete evidence to support claims that she is using Ozempic. Multiple rumors across Hollywood allege other celebs are using Ozempic to aid in weight loss but again, this is all speculation as not a lot of celebs have been very open about their weight loss journeys.

As noted in this related article, Oprah acquired a 10% stake in the company. This article alleges that Oprah will donate all of her shares to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. This was reportedly done in an effort to “eliminate any perceived conflict of interest around her taking weight loss medications,” according to the brand, WeightWatchers, as also mentioned here.
