Jillian Michaels is now a well known name in the US, providing expert workout videos and diet tips to help you to shape up. The website provides recipes, diet plans, workouts, tracking and measuring tools, as well as a supportive community to help keep you motivated.
First off, it’s worth mentioning that the Jillian Michaels system is probably more exercise-intensive than other diet and weight loss programs we’ve looked at in this category.
That’s not a bad thing, particularly if you want to work out to shed a few pounds, but there’s a little less focus on food and more of emphasis on exercise.
That covered, what can you expect to get through this website? The tools on offer are pretty good for a start, allowing you to easily keep notes on the food you eat, the exercises you perform, and how those impacted on your weight loss. This helps you to identify patterns in behavior and the potential payoffs in terms of losing weight.
As well as a fitness and diet plan, the site also offers videos to show you the safest way to perform an exercise. If you’re ever low on morale, you can join the online community of slimmers, chatting to get new ideas, exchange recipes and more.
You also receive regular emails from Jillian, spouting tips and general motivational phrases in your direction. You can also read about people who used the system to lose impressive amounts of weight. If nothing else, that’s proof that the Jillian Michael’s diet really can work.
The online store sells a good range of products, from natural energy drinks to DVDs and exercise equipment. You can also buy clothing, or gift cards if you hope that a friend or family member might also join.
Meal plans for weight loss are personalized, suited to reaching your goals, as well as considering your age and gender. You can find meals for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner, and the food looks both healthy and appetizing.
Some of the dishes are more complex than others, so if you want to get the most out of this then you either need to be a competent home cook or be willing to learn to improve your cooking skills!
If you’re interested in controlling your diet and indulging in very light exercise, this might not be the ideal site for you.
However, if you’re up for the challenge of working out and eating healthily with some real gusto, it seems like you could make massive leaps through JillianMichaels.com. Prices are pretty low and you also get access to some really useful videos and tips along the way.
