“It was just diet,” the 5-foot-7 ac­tor down­plays of con­sult­ing a nu­tri­tion­ist to dra­mat­i­cally slim down in 2011. Mul­ti­ple reports sug­gest he sub­se­quently packed on more weight than he’d lost to film War Dogs, which he’s since dropped again. But nu­tri­tion ex­pert Dr. Fred Pesca­tore warns that risks of yo-yo di­et­ing in­clude “di­a­betes, heart dis­ease and pan­cre­ati­tis.”

The 5-foot-7 talk show host says pre­vi­ous di­ets failed be­cause she re­sumed bad habits (like bing­ing on pota­toes) af­ter reach­ing her goal weight. Now a Weight Watch­ers spokes­woman, Oprah plans to prac­tice por­tion con­trol “for the rest of my life,” which La-based di­eti­tian Lisa De­fazio calls “a great way to main­tain weight and con­trol calo­ries.”

“I’m feel­ing fan­tas­tic, bet­ter than ever,” the 5-foot-8 mom of two says of los­ing weight on a “bleak” diet in prepa­ra­tion for her wed­ding to Aussie bil­lion­aire James Packer. But she could be set­ting her­self up for post-nup­tial prob­lems. “Peo­ple go on dras­tic di­ets, then get so hun­gry and ir­ri­ta­ble that they give up and eat,” De­fazio ex­plains. “Once their body gets the carbs and calo­ries, they can’t stop and gain again!”
