Vanessa Hudgens Just Posted About Keto...And Some Fans Are Pissed But seriously, how could you stay mad at Vanessa?

The fitness guru doesn't just love a tough workout: Walking is super meaningful to her, because of her work with refugees. But here’s the issue I’m having: We all have causes that are important to us. Why should you care about what’s important to me and how can I get you to care without making you

Jillian Michaels . Jillian Michaels has opened up to People about her decision to leave Biggest Loser after ten years of helping people to get in shape. "I don't want fans to think I feel like I'm too big for the show or that I'm seeking greener pastures," she explained.

I want to share with you why I’m working with the UNHCR (the United Nations Refugee Agency) and why I’m walking to raise funds to help refugees around the world “live in safety with dignity and peace.”

But here’s the issue I’m having: We all have causes that are important to us. Why should you care about what’s important to me and how can I get you to care without making you feel manipulated? Ultimately, all I have is my truth so that’s what I'm sharing with you.

I Want People to Feel Worthy

There aren’t many places in the world where a gay woman, born to a Jewish mother and a Syrian father, raising children of different ethnicities, would be alive-let alone thriving. But I am. I am far from perfect, but the quality of my life is excellent. I am “blessed” and “anything is possible.” Well, I’ll never dunk like Lebron, but he is a Laker now and I have a friend with season tickets so…almost anything.

Jillian Michaels reveals the 2 most effective things to do to burn belly fat

Jillian Michaels reveals the 2 most effective things to do to burn belly fat According to Jillian Michaels, exercises that only target one part of your body — like your abs — aren't the best way to get rid of fat.

Jillian 's Blog. Exercise Your Mind. Giving you keys to a healthier life. Read the latest post. 100 Mile Challenge! I’ve chosen to raise money for The UNHCR by walking 100 miles in July. The benefits and reasons to incorporate protein powder into your diet.

The Jillian Michaels Paleo/Gluten free nutrition plan provides optimized phytonutrients, fiber, and clean protein combinations to ensure you get incredible results. Jillian and her team of chefs and registered dietitians crafted this plan to boost energy, maintain muscle, and optimize fat burning.

From this place of possibility, I spend a lot of time educating people on feeling worthy, believing in their capabilities, and recognizing their true potential. And I love doing that-so, so much. But, there are people in the world who do not have the opportunities we have to rise up, pursue our passions, and “live our best lives” simply because of where they were born. For 25.9 million refugees on our planet (half of whom are children) there is literally no available path to survive let alone thrive-without help.

For years I have known that “to whom much is given much is required.” And I’ve done my part for many causes over the years. I’ve written checks, lent a hand, and got out the good word for everything from breast cancer awareness and childhood obesity to animal welfare and veteran support services. I didn’t really have a “charity profile” like many “celebrities” do, where they are associated with one cause and they really dig in to try and move the needle on it. I just thought: I’ll do a good deed where I can, when I can, for whatever or whomever is in need. I’ll be the glue that fills in the cracks when I come across them. I’ll offer the hand that that helps you up if you fall.

Jillian Michaels Won’t Back Down on Keto Criticism: “It Is Bad for Your Overall Health”

Jillian Michaels Won’t Back Down on Keto Criticism: “It Is Bad for Your Overall Health” The trainer says the diet is “bad for your overall health and wellness” and believes people can still lose weight without the risk of negative side effects. Trainer Jillian Michaels has reaffirmed that she does not support the keto diet in a recent interview on the #Adulting podcast. The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb eating plan that has surged in popularity for weight loss.

Jillian Michaels (born February 18, 1974) is an American personal trainer, businesswoman, author and television personality from Los Angeles, California.

Jillian Michaels is an American personal trainer, businessperson, author, and television personality. Jillian ’s paternal grandmother was Nellie Eva Courey (the daughter of Naijeeb Courey and Ratha Elizabeth Saba). Nellie was born in Michigan, to Syrian parents.

Why wouldn’t I? Why wouldn’t anyone? It didn’t hurt me to do these things. It helped- them and me. I wasn’t saving the world (no one can), but it gave me a sense of empowerment. Being able to shine a little light in the darkness wherever I was capable (without sacrificing my own well being in the process) made me feel good and a little less helpless in our often crazy world. And this is what I am going to ask you to do: Shine your light.

Why Refugees Matter to Us

I could tell you all about who refugees are: how they had families, careers, and lives just like we do. How and why they are forced to flee their homes and leave everything behind. How and why they are at risk of terrible acts of torture, rape, human slavery, and massacre. But like me, you probably already know. You may not know why it’s happening (like I didn’t at first), and you may not know how big this humanitarian crisis is (like I didn’t at first), but you do know there is evil in the world and that hideous things happen to good people for no fault of their own, all the time (like I did). And in the immortal words of Edmund Burke “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men / women to do nothing.”

Jillian Michaels . April 11, 2018. Hence the reason we believe this type of low carb diet can help individuals with epilepsy and Alzheimer’s. There is absolutely a link to insulin secretion, insulin aggregation and amyloids; we just don’t fully understand the complexities yet.

Jillian Michaels is the foremost fitness expert in the world and a renowned life coach. From her hit televisions shows, extensively successful Jillian ’s company, Empowered Media, which she co-owns with business partner Giancarlo Chersich, has become a monumental wellness empire dedicated to

I could dig into all the above, deeply, but my hope is that you will read this and should you want to know more or get involved you will go to the UNHCR’s website to do that.

That’s what I did when I first became curious about how and where I could help “shine some light.” And I can say with the confidence of an eyewitness that this organization leads the world’s response to refugees and works around the clock around the world to help refugees, and the communities that host them, not only survive, but thrive. I’ve even gone on a 3 day mission with UNHCR to see their work firsthand in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, giving life saving care to the South Sudanese refugees who had arrived at the border and narrowly escaped the atrocities of war in their country.

The Woman Who Changed My Life

There is certainly a lot to share, but for now I want to tell you about just one woman’s story. The woman who made me want to be a better woman. The woman whose story got me asking questions in the first place and led me to the UNHCR to get answers and get involved.

A couple of years ago I was invited to an exhibit on refugees at The Annenberg. The Annenberg Foundation had commissioned top acclaimed photojournalists to shoot the lives of displaced people on five continents expressly for this exhibit and made a short documentary about it, appropriately titled REFUGEE.

This Is the Best Kind of Exercise, According to Jillian Michaels

This Is the Best Kind of Exercise, According to Jillian Michaels The world-famous fitness expert shares her thoughts on the most effective forms of fitness.

Jillian Michaels . October 3, 2018. That 's why you need to be mindful about not creating too much of a calorie deficit, based on your active metabolic rate. The max should be a deficit of 800 calories; otherwise, your body thinks you're starving and holds on to that extra fat.

The purpose, of course, was to illustrate the scope of this crisis and the atrocities associated with it. Images so devastating that I won’t write about them for fear of overwhelming and desensitizing you. Stories so soul crushing you literally feel your heart break as they are being told.

For me, one woman’s story in particular catalyzed the re-evaluation of my entire life. The story of a Rohingya refugee, around my age, gravely ill. She knew she was dying and desperately in need of medical attention, but because she was Rohingya none was available to her. In the span of several minutes on film I watched her fight for her life with a courage and a dignity so inspiring it ignited a confidence in my own capacity for bravery and grace I didn’t know I had.

Yet, despite all that, I watched her die anyway. Not because her illness couldn’t be cured, but because she was Rohingya and that meant she couldn’t get the medical care to treat it. Her name was Moriam Katu. She was a mother, a daughter, a sister… just like me.

People die every day, I know this, but her death was preventable. She wanted help, help did exist, but she couldn’t get to the help and help couldn’t get to her. She was imprisoned on a small strip of land on the western coast of Myanmar and denied access.

Things are progressing for the Rohingya due to the valiant work of many-in particular the UNHCR-but more help is needed. A lot more for the Rohingya, the South Sudanese refugees I spent three days with, and the other 70.8 million forcibly displaced individuals around the globe.

What You Can Do

While this might not be your cause, and I don’t expect you to bend over backwards or give what you don’t have. I am asking you to care. Simple as that. To know what is going on. To see these people and empathize with their struggle.

How you view them and their circumstances matters. Our understanding and empathy can help provide safety and opportunities to rebuild.

Refugees are not terrorists. They are not extremists. They are not morally suspect. They are not migrants coming to take our jobs. They are not burdens on society, or a drain on the economy showing up for government handouts, they are not “other,” or any pariah like label they may have been branded with. The exact opposite is true.

A refugee is an individual who is fleeing terror, violence and persecution-not one committing it. A refugee is a fellow human being who needs our help.

I have chosen to walk over 100 miles in the month of July in solidarity with brave refugees around the world to raise awareness of the incredible distance they cover each year to find safety and to raise critical funds for UNHCR’s life-saving operations. But I can’t do it alone. Join me? We can get in shape, provide help to those in need and transform all of our lives for the better. Go to Step With Jillian to learn more.
