Time magazine sat down with The Biggest Loser’s Jillian Michaels to conduct their famous 10 Questions interview with the fitness phenom. As fans may expect from the notoriously tough-as-nails fitness star, if she had to pick just one exercise, it would be mixed martial arts over the gentler yoga, because “sometimes you just have to hit something.”
Jillian effectively deflects potential criticism for what could be perceived as hypocrisy over denouncing “magic pills” while being involved in weight loss supplement business deals. She also even breaks down, and admits to her guilty food pleasures: “wine and Turtle Mountain chocolate – peanut butter – coconut ice cream.” I’m not sure which product she is referring to, bu maybe it’s this ice cream.
But, the most memorable quote from the Time interview with Jillian Michaels is this on the childhood obesity epidemic:
“Fake foods are more affordable. It’s enticing people to eat more because they think they’re saving money when they’re really just buying heart disease.”
