For those ready to get losing, here is how the Jumpstart Diet works:
You begin by registering with Self.com. From there, you sign up for the Jillian Michaels Jumpstart Diet and you’re on your way to a leaner and fitter you. Each day, you’ll receive diet and fitness tips that you check off, using your handy online progress tracker. You can also share your fave tips with your health-minded friends via email, Facebook or Twitter.
From there, you choose what you want to eat, tag on some exercise and log your progress. It’s really that simple and fun.
The Jillian Michaels Jumpstart Diet is strongly influenced by the powerhouse trainer’s Master Your Metabolism book and the Master Your Metabolism Cookbook. Every day, you eat three meals, one snack and one dessert. Meals have between 320 and 400 calories, snacks and desserts have 180 to 200 calories.
More than 70 recipes feature delish creations for those who enjoy spending time in the kitchen or for those who are too busy to whip up an egg scramble frittata in the morning. You can customize your own meal plan simply by navigating through the diet plan tabs, like breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and dessert. Each dish lists its complete nutrition information.
You simply add what you ate in your food diary and it does the calculating for you.
Sample recipes from the Jillian Michaels Jumpstart Diet include Mediterranean Baked Salmon, Quinoa Salad Bowl, Black Bean Wrap, homemade trail mix, Curried Brown Rice Salad, Honeyed Waffles, Almond Muffins, Yogurt parfaits and much more.
Jillian really unleashes her fitness prowess in the Jumpstart Diet. You’ll do five cardio sessions a week, plus Jillian’s toning sequence, which is a yoga-inspired workout that builds long and lean muscles without any gym equipment at all. Complete workouts are provided for you on the website, including instructions, time length and intensity.
Workouts can last from 30 to 45 minutes and just like the eating plan, you are encouraged to log your workouts on your fitness tracker.
