born to be: me.

Jillian Michaels in the latest Fitness Magazine.

What advice do women always ask you for?
They get caught on plateaus. In that case what you need to do is give yourself a couple of days of rest and bump up your calories by 10 percent. When you lose weight quickly, your body often responds by releasing hormones to increase your appetite and store more fat. That’s a survival instinct meant to help us conserve fuel during times of famine. You can outsmart it by eating a little more and resting. That usually helps jump-start your metabolism again.
What’s the biggest mistake that fitness newbies make?
Number one is that people don’t educate themselves. They do things like the latest diet craze. Learn about lasting programs that have shown consistent results. Then take deliberate actions to make your dreams come true. Don’t be impulsive and do something that’s going to backfire. That begins a vicious circle of, I’m a failure, nothing works for me.
Is it possible to have the perfect body?
No. What you can have is your ideal body. I think people need to stop focusing on body image and start focusing on health. When you do that, it’s all going to fall into place.
