We'd listen to Jillian Michaels any day when it comes to health and wellness. As a celebrity trainer, wellness guru, and creator of the My Fitness by Jillian Michaels App, she has plenty of sound advice to give so you can live your happiest and healthiest life.
We recently spoke to Jillian about how your diet needs to change if you're trying to lose body fat. Her answer was pretty straightforward. "Fat loss is simple science: calories in calories out," she told POPSUGAR. "And don't eat crap food." Easier said than done, but it's a pretty solid rule to live by.
"If you have weight to lose, you need [to be in] a calorie deficit," she explained. "No fewer than 1,400 [calories] a day with unlimited greens. Avoid heavily processed foods like white flour and white sugar, dial alcohol way back, and drink a lot of water."
Are you taking notes? Because we are. Eat whole foods, avoid processed and packaged goods, cut back on booze, drink lots of water, and stay in a healthy calorie deficit. Those are the rules to live by. Write them down on a sticky note, and let's get to work!
