Katie Couric made a splash in the broadcasting world when she became the first female correspondent to be the solo anchor of an evening news program. She worked on “CBS Evening News” for five years. When she returned to ABC, Katie Couric interviewed notables like Sarah Jessica Parker. Katie Couric has always encouraged a strong presence of health-related topics in her reporting, and she is also personally health conscious. So it was a surprise when CBS copped to airbrushing the already svelte news anchor.
Usually, when news anchors are airbrushed in their publicity photos, minor issues are fixed, such as a stray hair. But questions were raised when a photo of Katie Couric was released with her figure airbrushed to look about 20 pounds lighter. While we may be accustomed to being inundated with absolutely flawless images of models and actresses, news anchors are supposed to be a bit more honest, given their job descriptions. CBS released a statement claiming that the digital weight loss was an accident.

Katie Couric already has an enviably trim waistline, so we’re puzzled as to why CBS enhanced her photo. Regardless, the news anchor isn’t letting the insult drive her toward a crash diet. Katie Couric appears to follow a pretty healthy weight maintenance diet.
Despite her hectic schedule, Katie Couric doesn’t appear to resort to quick drive-thru breakfasts. She’s been known to munch on a bowl of Greek yogurt while walking to work. Greek yogurt packs a hefty dose of protein. It’s a healthy alternative to eating eggs in the morning, with a lot less cholesterol (depending on the brand, of course – always check your nutrition labels). We’d recommend mixing the yogurt with some low-sugar granola or fresh berries.

Katie Couric emphasizes fresh fruits, veggies, and lean proteins in her diet, so it’s likely that she’d reach for an apple or an orange when she wants a snack. Katie even enjoys harvesting her own veggies and herbs from the garden at her home in the Hamptons. For lunch, she’d likely eat a healthy salad, perhaps with some tuna or grilled chicken. One of Katie Couric’s favorite dinner recipes is chicken breasts dredged lightly in flour and lemon juice, served over rice. We’d assume that she’d also serve assorted veggies with this meal.
Katie Couric doesn’t have a great deal of time to exercise, so she fits it in whenever she can. Katie’s been known to take a walk in the park before walking over to work. She also enjoys yoga, light weightlifting, and various cardiovascular workouts.
