What's good for OprahÖ

Oprah Winfrey's personal trainer Bob Greene offered weight loss advice during a book signing at the Alamo Safeway last week. Greene was in Alamo publicizing his new book, "The Best Life Diet," and gave short consultations to fans about their eating habits. In some of the conversations, he pointed out that food can be used as "a comfort drug" and in others he encouraged people to journal about their daily eating routines, recording what they ate, how much was consumed, and how they felt at the time.

Tamra Rucker and Stephanie Cole said they heard about Greene's book and philosophy when they were up late watching television one night. The women were also interviewed by reporters from the TV show "The View" while at Alamo Safeway.
