Sell Out?

Now I hate to say this....but I am very disappointed in Jillian Michaels. I feel she is someone a lot of people look up too, and I was outraged when I started hearing commercials for her weight loss pills! Forgive me if I'm wrong, but doesn't she preach to her contestants and to everyone in America how behavior change, educated choices, and hard work will help you to achieve the results you want? Also to make things worse, her new product is based on bitter orange extract which isn't even a regulated herb...I feel this is so hypocritical and gimmicky of her to do, what is she thinking?
What do you guys think? Do you even care? I feel we can all relate because we've all been there. We've all tried multiple diets before, maybe even some diet pills here and there promising to make you lose 2 whole dress sizes in a month. None of them worked for us and that is why we made the decision to get banded. What about the other people out there though that aren't banded, and are still looking for that magic diet pill? They see one of their role models endorsing a new product and there goes another $40 down the drain. Shame on Jillian! I don't see her handing this product out to the contestants on the ranch...coincidence? I think not!


  1. I could not agree more!!

    Hi...I'm a new follower...and also, you look amazing!


  2. I totally agree with you! And I love biggest loser

  3. I totally agree - she knows the healthy way to lose weight, but she does this and some detox thing too.
    It's very hypocritical - especially when they always tout on the Biggest Loser how they lose weight with no surgery(I hate that). I still love Biggest Loser though.

  4. I also agree. I saw this and had the same reaction. Just goes to show - just about anyone will sell out their beliefs when enough money is thrown their direction.


  5. BOoooo!!! That is insane. I cannot believe she is doing this. I guess everyone has a price!

  6. I think that it's funny how some people's principals go flying out the window at the prospect of making a quick buck! I'm not a fan of hers anyways, so this just reinforces it.

    I'm a new follower and loving your blog so far!
