Bruni on Dr. Oz - efficient joyless eating

AreBe | Apr 14, 2011 11:12 AM

Fuel Body at Frequent Intervals: Oz, Bruni explains, carries around baggies, plastic containers, and thermoses full of healthy food and drink like "Greek yogurt mixed with brightly colored berries; spinach; slaw; raw almonds; raw walnuts, soaked in water to amplify their nutritional benefit; a dark green concoction of juices from vegetables including cucumber and parsley." In a passage that will probably make foodies shudder, Bruni observes that "roughly every 45 to 60 minutes, as if on cue, [Oz] would ingest something from his movable buffet, but only a bit, his portions assiduously regulated, like an intravenous drip of nutrition. It was the most efficient, joyless eating I have ever seen."
