Everything You Need to Know About Going to a Weight Loss Clinic

  Everything You Need to Know About Going to a Weight Loss Clinic Losing weight is easy for no one, and there is zero shame in deciding you need help. If you decide to go to a clinic, watch out for these red flags.The problem is, between commercial plans, storefront medi-spas, fad diets, wellness influencers hawking unproven supplements, and other kinds of get-thin-quick schemes (some with doctors associated with them), it’s hard to know where to begin.

Jillian Michaels believes that the move towards political correctness in the health world has gone too far.

The trainer, 45, said that the body positivity movement has improved life for people who would get “body shamed or fat shamed,” but she’s concerned about the health implications.

“I think we’re politically correct to the point of endangering people,” Michaels told Women’s Health U.K. for their Jan./Feb. issue. “Yes, we want to be inclusive of everyone [and respect that] everyone comes in all different shapes and sizes. That nobody should ever be body shamed or fat shamed or excluded and that everyone is equally deserving and should feel equally valuable.”

  Ask Jillian Michaels: I want to exercise more, but it's so difficult for me to overcome my natural laziness. How do you stay motivated every day to work out? In a new advice column for Insider, fitness guru Jillian Michaels explains how she overcomes laziness and keeps herself motivated to exercise.This has got to be the most common question I get: "How do I get or stay motivated?"

But Michaels said that push for acceptance has gone too far.

“Obesity in itself is not something that should be glamorized,” she said. “But we’ve become so politically correct that no one wants to say it.”

Michaels said that the same movement has also hurt her former show, The Biggest Loser, which returns in January after a revamp and a four-year hiatus.

“I think the world has shifted to a place where that format and messaging is considered fat shaming,” she said of the show. “But it isn’t, and it’s not meant to be. Now we’ve gone too far in the opposite direction.”

Michaels is known to have strong, often controversial opinions. She caused an uproar at the start of the year when she slammed the keto diet, calling it “a terrible, terrible idea.”

Jillian Michaels Spars With Wendy Williams For Fasting Twice A Week: ‘Use Common Sense’

  Jillian Michaels Spars With Wendy Williams For Fasting Twice A Week: ‘Use Common Sense’ Fasting is a BIG no no, according to Jillian Michaels, and the famed fitness trainer wants Wendy Williams to stop doing it asap! It’s the top of the new year, and Jillian Michaels is here to get us all in shape! The fitness trainer, 45, stopped by The Wendy Williams Show on January 7 to share her expert health tips, and it boils down to something very simple: “use common sense.” Jillian stressed that the key to staying healthy is seriously just balancing exercise and a good diet. Wendy Williams isn’t exactly following that advice right now, though — at least, according to Jillian.

“Why would anyone think this is a good idea?” she said in January. “Your cells, your macro molecules, are literally made up of protein, fat, carbohydrates, nucleic acids. When you do not eat one of the three macro nutrients — those three things I just mentioned — you’re starving yourselves. Those macro nutrients serve a very important purpose for your overall health and wellbeing. Each and every one of them.”

Her comments led to backlash from a few celebrity keto fans, including Al Roker, Andy Cohen and Vinny Guadagnino, with Roker bashing Michaels’ training style from her time on The Biggest Loser.

“So @JillianMichaels says #Keto is a bad idea,” he tweeted. “This from a woman who promoted on camera bullying, deprivation, manipulation and more weekly in the name of weight loss. Now those sound like bad ideas.”

Body Positivity, Weight Bias and the Battle for a Healthy Life .
A battle over the perils of obesity is playing out in pop culture and the medical community.Climbing obesity rates fuel related illnesses like type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Bariatric surgery, a drastic measure typically for the middle-aged, is becoming more routine for extremely obese adolescents. Obesity-related absences among U.S. employees cost the country as much as $6.38 billion annually in productivity, and scientists say severe weight gain is contributing to shrinking U.S. lifespans.
