Questions for Jillian Michaels re: Winning by Losing
 
Hey, everyone. I see a lot of questions about the book, but they're getting buried in the thread where we're chatting with one another. I'm pretty sure even though Jillian is obviously helpful and giving, it has to be hard searching for them on limited time.

Maybe we could put them here for her. Just list the question without all the paragraphs and she could get to them when she visits the site?

I was trying to make it easier/more organized for her because there were a couple I wanted to see the answer to, but haven't.

Looking4TheWayOut 10-23-2005 09:28 AM

Jillian, these were some questions others posed that I didn't see answers to that were only about your book:

1.) Do you have any replacement exercises for the ones in the book using gym equipment for those of us not using a gym?

2.) Will your workout videos work with this plan?

3.) What happens after the 12 weeks are up?

That's what I've seen so far. Does anyone have any to add?

waiting for my book.... and i see at amazon u have work out videos... cool i also checked your site and i see that u have a package of workout videos comming out for sale soon...

ok if u dont mind another question .. could you please address this situation>> see-sawing, I have read some articles where u explain plateaus,,, but what the heck is up with this up and down stuff?

just a bit of background:i started at 288 lbs i walk 5 miles a day, and do an hour of circuit/resistance training per day... some days i throw in some time on the gazelle..

i have not gone off my eating program.. i eat no white flour, no pasta, no potatoes..very low sugar( no processed sugars) (basically a low glycemic diet)

i would estimate my calories @ 1200-1300 per day, my body fat percentage is 27%

I am wondering if maybe i am not getting enough protein?


thank u for any help u may be able to give me on this..

I'd like to hear Jillian's take on the following:

I have heard several trainers say if you want a long, lean look to lift light and lots of reps but if you want to have a more fitness competitor look ( I don't want to say bulky, just more cut I guess) to lift heavy and less reps. I guess the comparison would be from a fitness competitor to the look actresses have. Is this BS, totally depends on genetics, what exactly?

:rofl: here! Thank you for not mentioning "bulk", my personal pet peeve! I'm looking forward to the answer...

Jillian answered my one question elsewhere and said to substitute gym back exercises by using bands at home.

The other question I had was answered in her last chapter. Duh to me. :)

Mrs.T 10-25-2005 02:38 PM

Jillian how important is waist to hip ratio? Are there exceptions to this ratio number going down?

Looking4TheWayOut 10-25-2005 03:30 PM

Jillian said she'd be stopping here as soon as she could to answer questions. She didn't even realize the thread was up. :)

Jillian Michaels 10-26-2005 03:03 AM

We understand you probably are a very busy person, so I think we're just grateful that you're able to answer our questions. ;)

Hi Jillian. LOVED last nights show!!! My question for you.....Is there a way you could post sample menu's or meal plans? Somewhere in my buzz to get info on your book, I've seen them somewhere(?) but now I'm lost. I have just started on Day2 and I'm a balanced oxidizer. It would be sooo helpful. Thanks and I look forward to seeing you on the boards!!

lessofsarahtolove 10-26-2005 01:58 PM

Hey Jillian -- no question for you -- just sending you love. :lol: You rock, man! I think it's just wonderful that you're here helping us out, and that you are taking the time to answer questions individually. You're a real gift, and I know we all really, really appreciate it.

And your book's on the way...... ;) Oh! And I wanted also to say that your biceps are probably the single most powerful inspiration I've yet encountered to get back on plan after spending some time in chemo-land. :D

Thanks for all that you give. :cool:

For all of you that are asking...If I've done this right here is the sample menu she posted before.

I confess that I just recently started watching Biggest Loser because a friend told me too. Can someone please tell me Jillian's background? My friend mentioned she had lost alot of weight sometime in the past? I'd love to hear her testimonial!
