Queen Sugar co-producer Oprah Winfrey has revealed her favorite foods to indulge in on cheat days. The Weight Watchers spokeswoman (and part owner) loves Cheetos and toasted bread, according to E! News.

But when she’s not cheating, Winfrey consumes a balanced diet of 20 percent proteins, 50 percent carbohydrates and 30 percent healthy fats. The media queen recently shared a seven-day food diary on her official web site.

Her diet plan is healthy and exciting and packed with calcium. She reportedly consumes about 1100 mg daily.
