Hey… gotta’ love Jillian’s butt-kicking ‘tude on the hit show, The Biggest Loser, but can she pull it off when she can’t be in your face, screaming at you to do another push-up?
Without her tear-jerking “heart to heart” scene, can she help you figure out your eating issues? Can she still help you conquer these problems?
Well, she thinks she can, and for a mere $4.00 a week, you can give her program a shot.
• Nutrition guidelines
• Exercises to do at home-no gym required
• Motivation to keep you moving
Does she deliver? Let’s sniff it out!
|Jillian is an experienced trainer, no doubt, so her advice on diet and exercise are pretty good and will probably work IF you stick to it.||How will you stick to it? Jillian doesn’t come with the program. Nobody will make you do it. Jillian doesn’t cover mindset enough to help you leap over those emotional hurdles to weight loss.|
|Handy online program to figure your caloric needs, weight loss menu and daily exercises.||It’ll cost ya’… or will it? Jillian charges $208* per year whereas other sites such as Livestrong do not charge at all. (*divided into quarterly payments of $52 and can be cancelled anytime after the first payment)|
|Trusted name – but is this a pro or a con?||Can you say brand? I’ll elaborate below…|
|Jillian upsells her potentially dangerous or useless supplements|
Is Jillian a trainer or a brand?
Jillian became a household name with the success of The Biggest Loser. A bit of a marketing lesson here… when you become a household name, you become a brand name or more importantly a trusted name.
Jillian’s products are being sold because she has this trust. Unfortunately, she doesn’t exactly deliver. It’s just not the same as having her in your living room or the gym.
You know, it’s awesome that Jillian has been so successful on the show because this means she’s helping these folks who are extremely obese lose weight and get their lives back… and that’s to be commended! Paws up for your achievements Jillian!
The folks on the show are also being helped, every step of the way, and most of us do not have that extra help. Heck, if you really had access to a trainer like Jillian, you probably wouldn’t be looking for the knock-off version online.
Worse yet, she tries to sell her supplements within the program. Though she’s never openly said she’s against supplements, she sure leads you to believe that she goes for the old-fashioned, sweat to burn, sort of philosophy.
Her supplements are nothing but stimulants and diuretics, and I’d tell you they were harmful except for the fact that they don’t seem to contain enough of the “proven” (sort of) ingredients like CL… to really effect any change. And, if you are sensitive to caffeine, stay clear…
The Bottom Line!
Yes, her program could help you lose weight and get in shape, but don’t do it because you think there’s anything magic in her advice just because she’s Jillian Michaels. I recommend her for her work on TV, but I can’t really endorse her program.
Instead, I’d recommend a few free things. Check out some of the free tools online to monitor calories. Also, surf for new exercises and healthy recipes.
Hey wait! There’s something you can do completely free and start making changes TODAY. I have an awesome, 100% free report I’ve put together that teaches you several proven methods to lose weight. No glitz, no glamour… but it just might make you the next Biggest… Winner? I may not be as good looking as Jillian, but I know my stuff too… I just don’t need to make as much money (kibble and bones are pretty cheap!).

Great download! I am a real skeptic – especially with downloads, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by your write-up. It makes sense! A friend recommended Sensa and after reading your site, I am (once again) too skeptical to try.”
