Ginnifer Goodwin Stunned by Weight Watchers Backlash
Weight Watchers may have just been named the best commercial diet plan of 2011 by U.S. News & World Report, but that doesn't mean that everyone is a fan. According to Ginnifer Goodwin, who has publically talked about following Weight Watchers' guidelines as a way to stay at a healthy weight, she received quite a bit of backlash about opening up about her past with Weight Watchers.
The Big Love star recently told People magazine that, although she did start following the Weight Watchers' plan at a young age, it's taught her a balanced, moderate and healthy way of eating - which isn't that common in Hollywood these days.
"I call it the 'Cocaine and Cigarettes Diet' in Hollywood," Goodwin told People magazine. "I see girls who haven't had a carbohydrate in three years. The second you go back to eating right, you're going to put that weight on. You eat one piece of bread and you are screwed, lady!"
These days Goodwin doesn't go to Weight Watchers meetings, but she does check in to Weight Watchers' online site and says that she still follows the program. She also does a lot of hiking and gets more exercise.
