Describe a day in Jillian Michaels’ life?

REPEAT – a couple nights of the week I push, sleep back and see friends as well.
How can one train to get a strong, energy-backed body like yours? Share how do you fit in a workout with your work commitments?
I’m all about shorter duration high intensity workouts that require minimal time and deliver big results. All my workouts that I create in my My Fitness by Jillian Michaels App use the same techniques – even for yoga, kickboxing, and beginner programs. It’s about circuit training with body weight, free weights, and HIIT intervals.
This allows me squeeze in 20 to 30 minutes 4 to 5 times a week no matter where I am – with or without a gym.
You have refused to endorse any fad diets like the highly-hyped keto diet. Why is that so? Also, what according to you are key essentials of a healthy diet?
Because fad diets are absurd. Diet, nutrition, metabolism – it’s all a science and we have most of the answers. Believing a fad diet is like allowing yourself to believe 2+2 does not equal 4. And they usually do harm to other aspects of your health in the process.
It’s really very simple. Don’t over eat. Use common sense with food choices and eat real foods – avoiding chemicals as much as possible. Create a 12-16 (max) period of fasting between your last meal of the day and your first meal of the day. Eat all three of the macros (protein, fat and carbs).
