As a team leader/trainer on TV's The Biggest Loser, Jillian Michaels quickly became one of America's most recognizable fitness advisors. Although Michaels is fit and trim now, she struggled with weight problems during adolescence. She realized that diets aren't the answer, but only a quick fix. Vowing not to write just another diet book, she presents a plan for what to do when you start shedding those pounds and how to keep from gaining them back. It's a lifestyle routine with advice for healthy living, not just losing the weight.
