T Be­lieve Di­et­ing!

In Touch (USA) - - The Big Interview -

Her days as a no-non­sense trainer on The Big­gest Loser are over, but Jil­lian Michaels is still mo­ti­vat­ing mil­lions. From DVDS to pod­casts, the 42-year- old has plenty of out­lets for her mes­sage, which is sur­pris­ingly straight­for­ward when it comes to food. “It’s com­mon sense — just don’t eat more than you burn in a day,” she says. “I don’t re­strict calo­ries or cut out carbs or any­thing.” When Jil­lian isn’t whip­ping the world into shape, she’s en­joy­ing her home life with fi­ancée Heidi Rhoades, daugh­ter Luken­sia, 6, and son Phoenix, 4. Here, Jil­lian opens up to In Touch’s Valerie Nome about the stress of wed­ding plan­ning, the dif­fer­ence be­tween rais­ing girls and boys, and her one guilty­plea­sure in­dul­gence.

So you’re not a di­eter? JM: Say­ing, “Don’t eat carbs or don’t eat pro­tein or don’t eat this or that” — it’s bulls---. Just don’t overeat. I don’t care how healthy a food is, if you eat too much, you will store it as fat!

What do you typ­i­cally eat in a day? JM: To­day I had whole-grain toast and two eggs over easy for break­fast. For lunch, I’ll do a salad with a carb and pro­tein. For a snack, I’ll have a fruit and Krave Jerky, and sushi for din­ner.

Do you have a guilty plea­sure? JM: Red wine! But I only do like two glasses a week.

“Some­times I think I don’t look like my­self,” ac­knowl­edges the re­al­ity star, who ap­pears more fake than cute these days. While she cred­its makeup for the changes, Dr. Schul­man blames fillers in her cheeks and lips. “Her lips are over­in­jected,” he says. “She looked bet­ter be­fore.”
