I do not like the Biggest Loser. It makes my job harder by setting unrealistic expectations and making people afraid I am going to yell at them or sit on their backs while they do pushups. It took me forever to try one of her workouts but now Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism Facebook Twitter Pinterest is one of my all time favorites.
About a year ago, as I was looking for more fitness podcasts to listen, I decided to check her podcast out. She was an angry teenager with father issues too.
I loved how humble she was in her apology to mothers after becoming a mom of two herself. I really like podcast Jillian.
Slim for Life is a collection of tips, categorized by subject, to help you start living life as a healthy and fit person. There are no meal plans or killer workouts.
There IS page after page of real and actionable steps to becoming a fitter and healthier person. To see how much we agree, I decided to take a few moments at the end of each chapter to check off the common sense beginner basics I would coach clients on during the first few weeks of their program.
Out of total points I scored…. Let me explain why.
I do agree with most of what she says. If I filled out the checklist based on the things I actually do after 14 years on this journey my score would be much higher. But I also believe we can only focus on so many things and successfully maneuver so many changes at once. I understand that Jillian wants focus, dedication and to get results fast.
I think this book is well worth the read if you are looking for clear steps to starting a fitness journey. Everything is written in a simple and actionable way.
I just want you to ignore the score. Take the steps you want to start with that, like she says, make sense for your life. Focus on them each day, working them into your routine until they become habits.
