Biggest Loser and Jillian Michaels - Diet Review

- POSTED ON: May 07, 2011

I am not a Jillian Michaels fan,  but I feel the podcast below is worth hearing
because it is an interesting demonstation of the shift that is taking place
in the thinking and beliefs of some of the the "mainline" diet gurus.


I plan to make reviewing various diets a normal part of DietHobby.
However, my typing abiliities are limited at present due to my broken wrist.

My personal position is that EVERY diet works for someone, and just because it might not fit into my lifestyle, or be right for me personally, doesn't mean it won't work for others.

I recently watched these video reviews and found them interesting and entertaining.Although they express a viewpoint FAR MORE NEGATIVE than my own,  I decided to include them here at DietHobby.

Hi Phyllis love the colors of your outfit today and appreciate your thinspirational thought :) I'm also not a big JM fan but did find this podcast truly interesting thank you for sharing. The thought of drizzling olive oil or spreading butter over my vegetables makes my new whole food diet sound so much more palatable :) And I love me a good sirloin or porterhouse steak! Sorry to hear about your broken wrist I will have to get all the details when I call. Will you be available for a chat tmw sometime? The best time for me (your time) would be between 10am-noon or after 4pm :)

Right or wrong -- the reason I use many non-fat products is to hold down my calories. I only get so many calories a day and 9 calories to a gram of fat compared to 4 calories to a gram of protein or fiber becomes a "no brainer" in making my food choices. My fat goal is 35 grams a day. I have been told that this is okay ... but now I doubt that I get enough mono and poly unsaturated fats. I do take a fish oil supplement... maybe this helps.

             jhwalk, We all do what works for each of us. I frequently use non-fat products to keep my calories down as well. However, sometimes I feel that full fat choices are worth the trade-off. Personally, I take issue with much of the "HEALTHY" hype that is so pervasive now, and plan to write some future blogs about that.
