Jillian Michaels Releases Meal Replacement Shake: Jillian Michaels Ultimate Shake

Jillian Michaels Sells Meal Replacement Shake: Cool or Not?

Fitness trainer Jillian Michaels is adding a meal replacement shake to her line of diet supplements. Called the Jillian Michaels Ultimate Shake, it's the trainer's first drink and will come in two flavors: French vanilla and Dutch chocolate. In a press release, Jillian describes the shakes as "high in protein, low in calories, rich in B6, B12, antioxidants, and fiber, contain no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners, and best of all, they're absolutely delicious!" They clock in at 180 calories.

While I don't mind a shake as a midday pick-me-up, I need a little more than 180 calories for a meal. Besides, I've never been a huge fan of liquid diets; I like getting my nutrients from fruits, veggies, and whole grains.

What do you think of the Jillian Michaels Ultimate Shake — smooth move or down the drain?

I just tried it for the 1st time and thought (the chocolate) was delicious. Seemed to have a hint of coconut which was really yummy. No aftertaste...yay! I'm on the South Beach Supercharged week 4. Needed something quick to grab on work days. This fits the bill. Thanks for such a perfect product.

I agree with a meal replacement shake. I do one in the morning and it is fast, fills me up, and gives me more energy throughout the day. Thanks!

Since when is what is essentially a slimfast shake considered a "lose weight fast" method? Pretty sure she isn't advocating drinking this shake for each and every meal, much the same way people don't drink breakfast shakes for every meal.

She is such a phony. Half the stuff she sells is horrible. Her protein powders are inferior to pretty much all other brands. I feel like she pulled a Kardashian and sold out to the weight-loss gimmick market.

She will sell anything regardless of if it helps weight loss or not so I don't think it's cool. She is already being sued over her diet pills too so I don't know why she is pushing more "lose weight fast" methods. My boyfriend told me just yesterday that he saw her selling which has nothing to do with weight loss. It just goes to show she is money hungry in my opinion.

I used to have a lot of respect for her, but between this and the diet pills, I'm getting very disappointed. It's really starting to feel like she'll shove her picture on any weight loss product to make a buck.

for someone how preaches lifestyle change, healthy eating, and no quick fixes...these go against all of this and gives confusing messages.

In her book she explicitly recommends only raw, all-natural, organic foods (ie, "nothing preserved or your great grandmother couldn't have eaten"). And, she specifically says to avoid things like protein shakes, powders, and bars. What a fraud!

She'll sell whatever she can to make a buck or two off people who believe that she actually cares about their health first and not her wallet.

It's probably pretty good, but I'd much rather eat my food than drink a shake. It sounds like it's pretty healthy--if you can't eat a real breakfast, maybe this could be a good alternative.

I usually do a protein shake with fruit for breakfast, so I think it's pretty cool. That's the only meal I could replace though.
