Oprah has a new Weight Watchers-friendly cookbook coming out

Oprah Winfrey, who last year became part owner as well as celebrity pitchwoman for Weight Watchers, has a new "point friendly" cookbook coming out.

Weight Watchers members will recognize that phrase. Different food items are worth different "points" and when you've racked up your allotted points for the day, you're done eating.

“Inside every overweight woman is a woman she knows she can be,” she said in a video shortly after her partnership with Weight Watchers began. “Many times you look in the mirror and you don’t recognize your own self because you’ve gotten lost, buried in the weight that you carry.”

Her new cookbook, "Food, Health and Happiness," is due out Jan. 3 - right about the time New Years resolutions are cranking up for the year.
