I admit it. I have a crush on Jillian Michaels. I love that she believes in people even when they have long since stopped believing in themselves. And THOSE ARMS!! Who wouldn’t kill for those arms?! Jillian said she’d never write anther dieting book again, but luckily she changed her mind and now you have the chance to win a signed copy of her new book “Slim for Life: My Insider Secrets to Simple, Fast, and Lasting Weight Loss.”
With the new year upon us, we all resolve to get healthier. Whether we choose to cut carbohydrates entirely or spend our days consuming nothing but juice, we set ourselves up for failure. So this year, take advice from an expert, celebrity nutritionist and author Jillian Michaels. Below please find some of her simple rules to help you stick to your diet and shed those unwanted pounds this new year!
1) Make a resolution…and keep it. Resolutions shouldn’t be something
you wait for so this new year, resolve to do it and resolve to start
2) It’s all about balance. Eating three balanced meals (every four
hours) with a snack between lunch and dinner is key. Reach for a
healthier snack like carrot sticks and hummus, fresh fruit, or curb
salty cravings with tasty snacks such as Popchips or almonds and dried
3) Just because it’s not fried, doesn’t mean it’s not delicious! This
holiday season, if you are in the mood to nosh, replace fried potato
chips with a healthier alternative that still will satisfy that salty
crave. Popchips are a great and my favorite snack option! They taste
delicious and have less than half the fat of fried chips and only 100
calories in the single serve bag.
4) Grab a buddy. It’s a fact that you will achieve greater success
when you have the support of those closest to you. So get your friends
together to support each other in being healthier in 2013.
5) Create healthier alternatives to your favorite fried foods. Opt for
cooking methods that use little or no fat such as steaming, grilling,
baking, popping, broiling or roasting. You can still make these items
taste great with the right seasoning! Have a weakness for fried
chicken? Instead take skinless chicken breast cutlets, cover them in
egg whites and a crushed up cereal like cornflakes, and bake. Same
great taste and more than half the calories and fat.
One lucky winner receive a signed copy of her new book “Slim for Life” AND a one months supply of Popchips!
