Default Jillian's diet pills?

I couldn't believe it when I saw Jillian (from Biggest Loser) on a commercial promoting her new weight loss pills. I love the Biggest Loser and I think it is so inspiring to see people change their bodies and lives using diet and exercise. I don't know what is in her diet pills, but I was a little bit disappointed to see her encouraging people to go that route.

I agree. I haven't seen the commercial but I did see a print ad in a magazine. I was a bit disapointed as well. I always got the impression that she advocated fat loss with diet and exercise, that people could, for the most part, do this with what they had instead of having to throw down lots of $ for it...

How different can these pills/supplements be from all the other crap that's out there?

So much for doing it the good old natural way. Once the celebs get a taste of money they are in it to win it for themselves. How sad this is.

I hope Bob stays the way he is

Good luck to all

She never seemed anti-supplements, she does recommend ones in her Making the Cut book and on her radio show she always talked about stacking caffeine and aspirin/white willow bark.

I do agree her pills are nothing special and look the same to whats already out there. The ingredients aren't even labeled as all organic when she has been pushing everyone to go all organic so much lately.

It's disappointing to see she is going more for the money than truly wanting to help people lose weight- but I guess that's how the business works, getting what she can from her 15 minutes of fame.

They aren't different and they even include dangerous and potentially dangerous ingredients. She is all about the $$$, screw your health.

I haven't kept up with Jillian lately but my co-worker just showed me an ad for Jillian's "Quick" weight-loss pills. How utterly disappointing. That made me lose a lot of respect for her.

I'm not a huge TBL or Jillian Michaels fan but I at least mostly respected her -- until I was buying protein powder and say her supplement scam in the "diet pill" section that is next to the protein and was so angry! What a HYPOCRITE. Sure, she recommended some supplementation but her products are the same old same old hyped up ingredients that either don't have enough to be effective or just don't even work and her products even contain some iffy ingredients (like nelie said).

The more Jillian sells herself the more I no longer care what she says.
