Jillian Michaels, who slammed the keto diet, bashes CrossFit: 'It stops being effective'

Jillian Michaels, who slammed the keto diet, bashes CrossFit: 'It stops being effective' Jillian Michaels, who memorably slammed the keto diet, is going after CrossFit, saying she has multiple "issues" with the trendy workout. "First of all, you’ve got what, maybe 20 to 25 movements that don’t really vary? And you’re doing them over and over and over again," she said. "So on one hand it stops being effective because you’re not challenging the body from various angles of push and pull, with different varieties of exercises and different types of movements that work different modalities.

Here's how much he eats in a day, including his nightly dessert. We know you're dying to see how much CrossFit athlete Rich Froning eats in one day. After all, how many calories does it take to sustain the Fittest Man in History?"

Turns out, a lot. If you're in a cut phase, you'll likely be jealous of Froning's very generous carb allowance. The athlete consumes roughly 200 to 500 grams of carbs per day, depending on his level of training.

But there was a time when Froning barely ate, because he'd have breakfast and then forget about meals until around 5 p.m.

"I found that I was under eating," he says. "I was not eating enough carbs."

To tackle his nutritional needs, Froning began intermittent fasting and uses RP Health, a nutrition coaching company. Together, they developed a personalized plan that outlines how much he should consume of each macronutrient when working out two and three times a day, as well as on active recovery days.

Froning shared his meal plan with Men's Health, and all we can say is, be prepared for some major food envy.

And he does admit to another–albeit small–indulgence: Raisin Bran and Frosted Mini Wheats.

"I eat a bowl of cereal to cap off the night," he says. "That’s my dessert."
