Jillian Michaels: "I Don't Believe in All or Nothing"

– health.com

I’m guilty: I snooped around Jillian Michaels’ dressing room. I was left alone for a few minutes while she filmed part of her new show, Sweat Inc., and I spied something far too tempting to ignore: her stash of snacks.After all, the fitness entrepreneur, 41, is a powerhouse, and I wanted to know what fuel she’s putting in her machine. Her snacks include organic brown rice crackers; dry roasted, salted almonds; and root vegetable chips.And, boy, does Jillian need to keep her energy up. In addition to this show, which debuts on Spike TV this month, she’s shooting an E! channel docuseries, Just Jillian, that captures her life at work and at home with her partner, Heidi Rhoades, and their two kids, Lukensia, 5, and Phoenix, 3, set to air in January. She’s also busy writing a new book for mothers-to-be, Hot Mom, Healthy Baby, and has just launched a fresh-food line called Slim Soul (in select supermarkets). And that’s on top of the Impact fitness wear she created for Kmart. Jillian is still in full exercise garb because she’s just finished a workout on camera—but despite the name of her show, she isn’t breaking a sweat. “I take better care of my body now than I did at 20,” Jillian says as we walk across set to grab lunch. “I got kids. I’m like, ‘I need to be around for a while!'”RELATED: Where to Buy the Cool Clothes Jillian Michaels Is Wearing in Our October IssueBack in her dressing room, she sits cross-legged on the floor. Diving into salad and ravioli, Jillian shatters some myths about working out and offers seriously practical advice on leaning in to get the body and life we deserve.I notice you’re not eating any of the grilled chicken.I don’t eat a ton of meat. I have grass-fed beef once a week, and farmed shrimp and ocean-caught salmon, and sometimes some sole or tuna. I’m looking at the planet and really starting to see how our food policy and food practices are destroying the world. Even grass-fed beef is so bad for the planet. And we’re fishing out the oceans.Do you cook at home?We’re terrible cooks! Well, Heidi is a good cook, but she doesn’t have a ton of time. I am a terrible chef, so I hate to admit this, but one of the things we do is have a couple of restaurants that feed us—literally. The more I work out, the more carbs I need. I stopped eating sugar in December. Carbs, yes, but straight sugar, no.Is there one food rule you think we should all follow?I don’t believe in all or nothing. I think the key contents are: Don’t overeat, avoid chemicals as often as possible and…that’s it.RELATED: Transform Your Body in 4 Weeks With Jillian’s 7-Move Circuit WorkoutAnd of course people always want to know what one move is best for the whole body. Is there one move?People think there is a simple solution. Honestly, the majority of people with fitness phenomenons build a business by giving you a magic-bullet answer: “Eat whatever you want, except this, and you’ll lose weight.” “Eat whatever you want, but only during these hours.” “Just do one exercise…

11 Ways to Make Your Hair Look 10 Years Younger

What is up with my hair?!If it doesn’t seem as healthy as it used to, blame it on…life. “Aging can make hair thinner, drier and less manageable,” notes dermatologist Shani Francis, MD, director of the Hair Disorders Center of Excellence in Skokie, Ill. The trick is to restore hydration, add volume and replenish shine. Here’s your total plan.Bring Back Softness”I love how dry and brittle my hair is!” said no one ever. There’s a scientific explanation for why it’s like that: “Since oil glands are mostly under hormonal control, they can become less active as your body changes over time,” says Dr. Francis. Turning up the heat on your dryer or curling iron only adds to the parching problem.TREAT ITRestore your hair’s natural lipids with a weekly fix such as Kérastase Paris Resistance Masque Therapiste ($34; amazon.com), which packs hydrating plant sap plus peptides and amino acids to strengthen abused follicles.STYLE ITCoat damp hair with a thermal protectant that hasceramides; they bind to hair and reduce breakage, found a study in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science. Try Phyto Phytokeratine Repairing Thermal Protectant Spray ($32; sephora.com). The suppler your strands, the less breakage youll see.RELATED: 6 Nutrients for Healthy HairBoost FullnessThinning often happens gradually, but for some of us, it seems to occur overnight. One day you look in the mirror and—gasp!—you can see scalp. Or you notice your ponytail isnt as full. “Hair goes through growing cycles, and at a certain age, it can slow down,” says Dr. Francis. But all is not lost: Those sluggish follicles can be awakened.TREAT ITOD’ing on products leaves behind buildup that can impede hair growth. ReGenesis Thickening Shampoo ($34; nordstrom.com) has willow bark to de-gunk and flax protein to plump strands. For significant thinning, the go-to ingredient is minoxidil. It’s the only over-the- counter drug that’s FDA-approved for stimulating hair growth in women. Find it in Women’s Rogaine Hair Regrowth Treatment ($30 for a one-month supply; ulta.com). With daily use, you can expect results in as early as 12 weeks. Also FDA-approved to spur hair growth: low-level red-light laser therapy. The HairMax LaserComb Ultima 12 ($495; neimanmarcus.com) is an investment, but it can be as effective as minoxidil, says Dr. Francis, and more so if it’s used in conjunction with the drug. Run the pronged wand over your scalp three times a week for eight minutes to see improvement in 12 weeks.STYLE ITYou guessed it—use volumizing spray. Try BloPro Blow Back Time Texture Spray ($20; blowpro.com), which infuses hair with specks of bulk-boosting powder. (No worries; its invisible.) Focus on the roots of dry hair, holding up 2-inch sections and spritzing them, says Nunzio Saviano, owner of the eponymous salon in New York City. “Brush through for more oomph.”RELATED: 10 Foods for Stronger Nails and Thicker Hair
