Jillian's personal health kick - Notes from the Jillian Michaels Show - 10/13/12

Yikes!  Jillian is tired of being sick, and she's on a health kick.  Here are some of the supplements she's taking to stay healthy:

  • Brain On - green blue algae
  • Multivitamins
  • Probiotics
  • Macro greens - chocolate flavored, mixed into water.  
Foods that Boost your Fitness Performance 
"Getting the extra edge" that will help you work out harder.  Supplements can help, and Jillian recommends EBoost, which is a supplement/drink she invested in.  However, you can use these foods to help boost your performance.  Jillian says that it's all about increasing the oxygen delivery to your muscles.
  • Beets - you can bake beets and have two of them as a snack or blend them into a smoothie.  The nitrates help your blood vessels dilate which increases oxygen delivery to muscles
  • Red apples, berries, or purple grapes -  They have corsitin in them, and help you absorb oxygen better.  If the berries aren't organic, Jillian recommends skipping them because they have so many pesticides on them.
  • Wild Caught Salmon/Fish Oil/DHA if you're vegan - Helps you metabolize oxygen.
  • Iron - Spinach with Vitamin C on it.  If you're not vegan, have a piece of grass-fed beef once a week.  Increases the red blood cell count and helps with delivery of oxygen.  
  • Eggs - good source of ATP.  Eat the whole egg.  Eggs raise your good cholesterol.  It's almost a complete food, but lacks vitamin C. Only 80 calories in an egg.
Based on the information above, here's a perfect day's meal:
  • Breakfast - Eggs, raspberries, toast if you want
  • Lunch - Salmon
  • Snack - Red Apple with some almond butter
  • Dinner - Grass fed beef.  Put your beets in a salad with goat cheese.  

Jillian and Janice also chatted about Prop 37 in California, Kineseo Tap, Chocolate Milk not being a good recovery drink, and responded to an email question about yet another book written by someone that says you can't control your calories in, calories out.  Sheesh.

I did my best to compile these notes from the show.  If there are any errors, please send me an email, and I'll try to correct it as soon as possible.  I am not a doctor, personal trainer, dietician, or anything that would remotely qualify me to give advice about health, medicine, or anything else.  Please consult a professional before following any advice.  This site is a summary of information provided on the Jillian Michaels Show that was compiled to the best of my ability.  I am not responsible for any inaccuracies or errors.
