"I have a secret," Jillian Michaels, a well-respected health and fitness expert of "The Biggest Loser" fame, said last week during a stop on her nationwide tour at Rialto Square Theatre in Joliet, Illinois.
"Eat less," she whispered, "...and move more."
According to Michaels, who is currently in the middle of her acclaimed motivational live tour “Maximize Your Life,” there's no better solution for turning one's life and health around than by doing what nature intended.
During her two-hour presentation, Michaels touted the benefits of cutting "toxins" out of one's diet. From finding the extra $20 weekly to switch to organic produce, to eliminating heavily processed foods whenever possible, Michaels says there are no trade secrets to becoming healthy. And anyone who peddles solutions, pills, or promises based on anything other than what's natural are offering little else than snake oil, she warns.
Michaels' message comes at a time when Americans are enthusiastically embracing the "all natural" craze.
In droves, consumers are picking organic fruits and vegetables over pesticide-laden GMO-grown alternatives. They're dumping potentially dangerous or habit-forming sleeping pills and turning to wearable technologies and mobile apps like Sleep Genius - a neuroscience-based sleep app - to naturally and effectively facilitate longer, more quality sleep. They're also joining gyms and fitness groups as a preferable course of action to popping shady if not dangerous weight-loss pills.
In fact, Curves recently announced that it would be the official sponsor of the “Jillian Michaels Maximize Your Life” tour.
According to Michaels, Curves shares her mission of health and wellness, as well as a desire to "provide women with the tools necessary to empower them to live more fulfilling lives."
During her stop in Joliet, Michaels exalted the importance of training your brain to make "natural" the goal for everything you do with your body and put into it.
For those who balk at the supposed financial burden of switching to an organic-heavy diet, Michaels says consumers don't have to go to extremes. They only need to make healthier choices more frequently and whenever possible.
"You don’t have to buy all organic fruits and vegetables," she says. "Buy thick-skinned fruits and veggies rather than the thin-skinned. And get your greens in bulk and be sure to reserve enough funds in your food budget to buy quality meat and dairy products. I promise you not all healthy food is expensive. A bag of oranges is not costly. In fact, it’s much cheaper than marmalade or juice for that matter. So be smart and use smart money saving strategies when shopping for healthy food."
Michaels' tour continues through May 17th, with forthcoming stops planned for Montreal, New York City, and Los Angeles.
