Dr Oz: Jillian Michaels The Biggest Loser
America’s favorite personal trainer is back on Dr. Oz’s stage! Jillian Michaels is known for her aggressive approach on the show The Biggest Loser, but she believes it works for the contestants just like it worked for her through her personal weight loss journey.
Dr Oz: Jillian Michaels ‘Nanny State’
As soon as Jillian Michaels took a seat on Dr. Oz’s stage he asked her what she thought about the ‘Nanny State,’ which is the idea that authorities have the right to tell people what to do and what to eat in order to be healthy. Jillian told Dr. Oz that she personally has not been accused of this issue because she does not give unsolicited advice and she does not pass health policies. For Jillian, you have to invite her in and be willing to take the advice she has to offer.
Dr Oz: Melissa McCarthy Weight Criticism
Dr. Oz touched on the topic of actress Melissa McCarthy and the recent criticism she received because of her size. He wondered if a person can truly be happy if they are too overweight. Jillian Michaels believes that a person has to love themselves regardless of their size so they can take the steps to better their lives if that is what they desire.
Dr Oz: Is Jillian Michaels a Bully On The Biggest Loser?
Dr. Oz said that Jillian is often the “bad cop” trainer on the hit show The Biggest Loser and even said she is a bully sometimes. Jillian admitted that she can be brutal with the contestants, but her time with them is limited so she wants to make the most of every moment because she is working with people who she believes are killing themselves with food. Jillian explained they could be gone from the ranch in six days or six months so she needs them to experience a rock bottom moment where the fear of change feels less painful than where they are at right now. She also needs to see them achieve something in the gym that will redefine their belief in their own capabilities along with taking responsibility for where they are at in their lives. Jillian said if they do not do that, they will remain victims and never have the power to change anything.
Dr Oz: Jillian Michaels Slim For Life
Jillian Michaels, author of Slim for Life, is no stranger to obesity having weighed over 170 pounds at one time in her life. This is what gives her a unique perspective about what every overweight person goes through when they are struggling to lose weight. Jillian said her new book offers a no-nonsense approach with advice for every weight loss dilemma, including plateaus and what foods to eat. She said she is not reinventing the wheel, but she has simple tips that will make your weight loss easy, accessible and affordable.
Dr Oz: Jillian Michaels Weigh Yourself Every Week
Jillian Michaels’ very first rule to get you “slim for life” is to make a date with your scale. She said it is important to know exactly where you are at, so the scale is a great way to measure your progress. She explained that some people avoid the scale altogether while others abuse the scale by getting on it every single day. Jillian recommends getting on the scale the same day every single week and at the same time of day every single time. This will give you an accurate idea of how well you are doing with your current weight loss program and whether you need to make some adjustments.
Dr Oz: Jillian Michaels Tie a Ribbon To Eat Less
Jillian Michaels’ next tip to help you stay focused on your weight loss is to literally cut a piece of ribbon and tie it around your waist before you go out to dinner at a restaurant. The idea behind this is that it takes around 20 minutes for your brain to know your stomach is full, so if the ribbon begins to feel tight when you are eating it is probably a good sign you have had enough to eat. Oftentimes we end up mindlessly eating when we are out with friends or watching television, so a ribbon around your waist will just keep you aware when you are eating.
