Jillian Michaels: The No-B.S. Rules You Must Follow To Lose Weight This Year

Ever since Jillian Michaels started whipping contestants into shape on The Biggest Loser, it’s been clear that she isn’t afraid to serve up some real talk when it comes to losing weight. Her no-B.S. approach to healthy living is exactly how she’s amassed over 100 million followers, sold countless fitness DVDs, launched a popular exercise-streaming platform, and landed eight books on the New York Times bestseller list. And her app, My Fitness by Jillian Michaels—which includes hundreds of fully customizable workouts along with meal plans and easy Jillian Michaels weight-loss recipes—was just named one of the best apps of 2017 by Google and Apple. What better time to check in with the superstar trainer and nutritionist than with New Year’s resolutions at top of mind? As expected, Michaels is all about using this season to kick off weight-loss goals. “Changing your life is changing your mind. And that can happen at any time,” she says. “Psychologically speaking, though, a new year provides more of an impact for a fresh slate and new possibilities: ‘new year, new you,’ it's been hammered into our heads. But when you believe, you behave. And when you behave, change happens. I would never want to take from somebody the opportunity to grow and change at any point, but a new year intrinsically appears to hold more hope than July 30th.” So take advantage of that psychological component and jumpstart your weight loss with Jillian Michaels' best tips for crushing your resolutions this year. At the end of the day, despite countless diet fads and foods and workout trends, weight loss is a simple science. “Weight loss is quite literally a biochemical equation of energy in, energy out,” says Michaels. And the quicker you understand that, the easier it is to start your weight-loss journey. “The first thing that you need to understand is that fat is stored energy, period. And calories in your food are a unit of energy. So, if you consume more energy than you're burning, your body will store that energy as fat. It is a simple energy equation,” she explains. When you reduce the amount of energy you take in and increase the amount of energy you expend—tada!— your body will burn fat. Check out some of the weirdest weight-loss trends through history: Once you understand the science, you have two pieces of the puzzle: diet and exercise. And those two pieces are not equal. “When it comes to weight loss, it's really 75 percent exercise and 25 percent diet,” says Michaels. Diet alone will work for maintenance, but not weight loss, because weight can't be starved off. “If you’re restricting food and not exercising, you're signaling to your metabolism that food is scarce and your body will hold on to those calories,” she explains. The main reason diet is in the equation? To keep your overall energy intake reduced. “If you say, ‘Okay, I worked out, I get a piece of pizza,’ that will keep you from gaining weight, but you won't lose it.” Weight ...
