Summer Weight Loss Tip from Jillian Michaels

“Here’s a weight loss tip for these hot summer days: Use your heating and air conditioning equipment to your advantage. There are studies that suggest that people tend to have a smaller appetite when the air temperature is warmer. There is also evidence that keeping your home warmer in the summer and cooler in the winter can help you to burn extra calories (not to mention save you some money on your energy bill). By keeping the temperature slightly cooler and warmer with the seasons you force your body to regulate its own temperature causing you to burn more calories.”

Jillian Michaels: Sugar Substitutes

From Jillian Michaels Facebook page:

Diet tip: You guys are always asking me about sugar substitutes so here’s the deal – Most sugar substitutes are far more sinister than sugar itself. Your body doesn’t know how to handle something that’s man-made. These chemically-adjusted products do not occur in the wild; there are no sucralose trees in warmer climates, nor are there saccharin plants on the plains of the Serengeti. In some instances, taking in sugar substitutes may actually increase your levels of hunger! Avoid anything in a blue, yellow, or pink packet. Try xylitol or a stevia product like Truvia for a low calorie sugar substitutes that’s safe. And at the end of the day if you use a packet of sugar it’s only 14 calories. With sugar, moderation is key.
