Jillian Michael's 6 health keys to conquer aging

  • Published on Jan 13, 2019
  • 6 keys to warding off premature death.
    - Getting older is inevitable. But with diet, exercise, and some insight into how the human body works, you can do your best to keep your body from aging prematurely.
    - Meal timing, combined with 12 hours of fasting, can actually do more for your body than you might realize.
    - Did you know stress can literally alter your DNA? And did you know that biological ways to combat the stress can even be passed down to your kids?
    Jillian Michaels has been a fitness expert and wellness coach for over 20 years. In addition, she owned and operated a sports medicine facility, where she worked as a physical therapy aide under the physiatrists, physical therapists, and chiropractors. Jillian's passion for fitness training originates from 17 years of martial arts practice in Muay Thai and Akarui-Do, in which she holds a black belt. Since 1993, Jillian has held two personal training certificates from the leading certification programs in the country: the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association and the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America. In addition she is Kettlebell Concepts certified. Jillian has also developed a continuing education series for trainers with AFAA and holds a nutrition and wellness consultant certificate with the American Fitness Professionals and Associates.
    Books, DVDs, and video games - Jillian has them all covered. She is a New York Times bestselling author of numerous books including Master Your Metabolism, Unlimited: How to Build an Exceptional Life, and her most recent bestselling release, Slim for Life: My Insider Secrets To Simple, Fast, And Lasting Weight Loss. Her first comprehensive 90-day weight loss system, Jillian Michaels Body Revolution is available in retail stores across North America, and JILLIAN MICHAELS BODYSHRED, an intense group fitness class based on Jillian's highly-effective 3-2-1 interval system, is currently taught in Crunch gyms and the YMCA in the US, exclusively at GoodLife Fitness in Canada, and is and expanding further worldwide this year.

    Julian, the older people I know.. I’m talking late 70s and 80s... they fast, eat low carb high fat, and lift weights. You’ve never talked about autophagy till it got popular with keto diets. Please stop giving people bad information!!! You’re not helping anyone pushing your yoplait!!!

    The beneficial effects of fasting she's talking about have been observed in MICE, and not in humans, at least so far.
    Telomere are also much more complicated than what she makes it sound.
    That's just two of the things to take with a grain of salt from what she's saying. If you want to hear from a real bio-gerontologist (someone who is working on research against aging) look up Doctor Aubrey De Grey.

    12-16 hours of Not Eating is just when we start to fast burn fat and autophagy starts
    It also depends on what how much we ate prior

    Not eating for such period of time doesn't do much
    Intermittent fasting is good for skipping breakfast
    Besides it's a joke

    Is Jillian REALLY a good source for health information? She hasn't really denounced or come clean about the Biggest Loser controversy. Her video on the Keto diet is so full of bad information it's pretty embarrassing. And in this video her lack of knowledge about the benefits of fastingis just cringe worthy.

    She's lost her credibility. Can't trust her advice anymore after her totally wacky & uninformed criticism on KETO. And she continues her disinfo...In fact, Keto lifestyle, (cutting out sugar & carbs) promotes the growth hormone which IS the promotion of healing. Much more to this as you can't lose weight with carb consumption since elevated glucose blocks weight loss. Carbs do not promote autophagy . CALORIES DO NOT COUNT if you're eating right.... And. .she is not telling the whole story on telomeres ... Can't, if leaving out Growth Hormone production.

  • Chaos Theory
    Chaos Theory 4 months ago

    _"There is nothing in our genes that tells us to age"_
    According to evolutionary biology, there is. As long as genes get passed on to the next generation, they proliferate. Therefore any malicious genes that cause cancer or whatever in ages beyond reproductive age have a chance to get passed on. The older an organism gets by this logic, the higher the chance it will deteriorate because of genes.
    I don't see the point in making such an obviously false claim.

    The 12 hour fasting rule is not universal; it may benefit some but harm others. The BMR is a better measure of an individual's daily needs. In fact fasting starts at the 8th hour after eating and starvation starts at the 12th hour; starvation isn't a good thing especially for those building muscle. Also many patients who suffer from inflammatory diseases, report no benefit with fasting but instead many do report variable benefits of certain foods, including olive oil, black seed oil and kefir.

    ''Simple law of thermodynamics, right?"
    0th law ≃ ''If the temperature of system A is equal to system B, and system B is equal to system C, then system A is equal to system C.'' Not sure how this is applicable here.
    1st law ≃ ''Energy cannot be created nor destroyed, but it can be transformed.'' Well true, eating food is about transforming chemical energy into kinetic energy, among other things. But again, not sure how to actually be applicable to aging or weight gain.
    2nd law ≃ ''The disorder of an isolated system always increases over time''. Hmm sounds a bit like an explanation for dying...
    3rd law ≃ ''Atoms dont move at absolute 0.'' Surely this cannot be what she is talking about.

    Jillian Michaels isn't really an expert on anything and listening to her like she is a god figure is a bad idea. Her advice to cut calories and run more is not the best strategy to lose weight. It misses up a person's metabolism and makes them hungry all the time. The failure rate of doing this almost 100%. If a person cuts out foods that make them hungry like sugar and carbs then they lower insulin which makes a person fat, and they are not hungry. It works and is very simple. And a person can sit on the sofa watching TV and win. Two thumbs up!!
