Dr Oz: Jillian Michaels Get Fit Plan

Jillian Michaels was back on Dr. Oz and she was ready to help you get into shape. Although she is known for her aggressive approach on The Biggest Loser, she believes it works for contestants just as it worked for her through her own weight loss journey.

Dr Oz: What Is Nanny State?

The first thing Dr. Oz asked Jillian Michaels was her view on the “Nanny State,” which is the idea that authority figures have the right to tell someone what they should eat and what they should do to stay healthy. Michaels said she has never been accused of the issue before because she does not give unsolicited advice to anyone, and she does not pass health policies for people. If you want her help, you need to ask her and be willing to take whatever advice she gives you.

Dr Oz: Jillian Michaels Wants Contestants On Biggest Loser To Hit Rock Bottom

Dr. Oz pointed out Michaels is often the “bad cop” trainer on The Biggest Loser and he even told her she can be a bully sometimes. She admitted she can be a bit overbearing on the show but she does it because her time with the contestants is so limited. She wants to make every second with the contestants count because the people on the show are literally killing themselves with food. On the show, contestants could be gone in six days or in six months, which means Michaels has a limited amount of time to push that person to their rock bottom. She also wants them to achieve something in the gym that will redefine their own beliefs in themselves. If these people never hit rock bottom and change their perception of what they are capable of, Michaels said they will remain victims and never have the power to change anything.

Dr Oz: Jillian Michaels Slim For Life Review

Michaels, author of Slim for Life, is no stranger to obesity or weight loss. She weighed over 170 pounds at one time. She said this is what gives her a unique perspective about what every overweight person goes through when they are struggling to reach their weight loss goals. Michaels said her new book offers a no-nonsense approach to weight loss and offers advice on getting past plateaus and other weight loss struggles.

Dr Oz: Jillian Michaels Weigh Yourself Same Day and Time Every Week

Michaels’ first rule for getting “slim for life” is to make a date with your scale. It is important to know your exact weight and the only way to track progress is with the scale. Jillian Michaels suggested getting on the scale the same day every single week and at the same time because this will give you an accurate idea of how well you are doing with your current weight loss program and whether there need to be some changes made.

Dr Oz: Jillian Michaels Tie a Ribbon Around Waist To Eat Less

Michaels’ next tip for losing weight is to literally cut a ribbon and tie it around your waist before you go out to dinner. The idea behind the ribbon, explained Michaels, is that it takes 20 minutes for your brain to know how full your stomach is, so if the ribbon begins to feel tight when you are eating, it is a good sign you have had enough to eat.
