NEW YORK, NY – Biggest Loser trainer Jillain Michaels has gotten herself into some hot water!
Jillian is facing three lawsuits as of now against her Maximum Strength Calorie Control pill supplement. According to the plaintiffs, the main reason for their lawsuits is that the pills can be potentially lethal. Sounds like a strong enough reason.
The reports state that the pills contain “potentially lethal” doses of citrus aurantium. Also known as Bitter Orange or synephrine, it is the “chemical cousin” of ephedra. For those that may not be aware, Ephedra is now an illegal substance. Ephedra came under heavy fire because a percentage of people who took it would die suddenly from a heart attack.
One of the plaintiffs, Kathy Hensley, claims that Jillian’s supplements contain too much of the toxic substance. Citrus aurantium can raise blood pressure and can cause serious cardiac problems in certain people.
Jillian’s “magic” pills have also been taken to court for claiming that they could make you lose weight by simply taking them. Sounds too good to be true, right?
Any supplement that gets taken to court seems like something that should be avoided. So for those that are looking for a quick fix pill, chances are there isn’t one out there. Staying active, eating right and drinking plenty of water seem like safe alternatives to diet pills.
Check out her latest controversy…

i agree, eat less move more. quit looking for a quick fix. Pretty much all supplements have some form of false claim. READ the lable and do your research before buying anything, don't hold someone else accountable for your own actions.
some people does eat less and still can not lose weight. and I am one of them.
they do work for some people…dont ruin it for everybody….take as directed….ifffff you dont have high blood preasure. may not work for some people…read the box…
I took the Jillian Michaels Extreme Fat Burner 3 times and Extreme Calorie Restrictor once and my fingers turned purple. That was enough to scare me into never taking it again.
send it to me i'll use it
for those of you who don't know and rely on the biased media ephedra is not illegal. for those stupid enough to use ephedra unwisely then you wil die, you have to know how to use prodects safely to get maximum results
Jesuschrist just put the fork down you fat asses.
just because you have a bad reaction to something doesn't mean it will kill everyone its called a allergic reaction you should never ever take something with out knowing what it can do to you and if you dont kno what everything in the pills dont take them im allergic to peppermint oil but i should sue someone because im a dumb ass and can read the bottle and make sure it isn't in there stop tryin to get rich fast lazy fat asses
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO READ LABLES. IF YOU HAVE BEEN DIETING LIKE I HAVE FOR SEVERAL YEARS YOU KNOW TO READ THE LABLES. NO ONE IS AT FAULT OTHER THAN YOURSELF.
i also heard that her wii game dont wrk
i try them all, even the cleaner, they didnt help, matter of fact, i had heart papatations and felt very strange from the caloie , and fat burner, i quit them. what i dont understand is she is the trainer on biggest loser, and says pills wont work to lose weight but here she sells them herself, whats up with that.
Listen, folks, I am a personal trainer. And I'm going to set the record straight once and for all. THERE IS NO MAGIC PILL THAT IS GOING TO MAKE YOU LOSE WEIGHT. PERIOD. Weight loss and maintaining that weight loss requires nothing short of a LIFESTYLE CHANGE. These so-called wonder drugs do immeasurable DAMAGE to your body. They are bad for your heart, your nervous system, kidneys, you name it. Proper diet (which doesn't mean you can't have your favorite foods once in a while), and some form of exercise (which doesn't have be on a boring exercise bike – walking is the easiest – and it's free) a few times a week are what is needed to lose weight and maintain. And don't expect weight loss to be overnight. The body can safely only lose 1-2 pounds per week without complications, so that's all you should expect to lose.
The formula for weight loss is simple; expend more calories than you take in. That's it. Cut 500 calories a day, and at the end of the week, you lose 1 pound (3500 calories = 1 pound). This chick is selling poison to you, and she doesn't care as long as the royalty checks keep coming. She's taking advantage of her name being out there and trying to capitalize on her fame. But her own weight loss came FROM HARD WORK, not pills! Get it? She's ripping you off! If her pills are so great, why doesn't she incorporate them into her show or anywhere else? C'mon, people, use your heads.
There is a chance that her pills work. I've never taken them but I did find out why I wasn't loosing the weight durung dieting. I have suffered from major constipation and bloating a long time. I found out that my digestive flora was out of wack. Bloating is caused by undigested food that is clogging the intestine. I'm taking care of that now to make the pipes work better. I"ve also stayed on my diet and have lost more weight in one week than I have in 3 months of trying. Get your flora right, then try her diet pills. It may just work. I'm using her powdered whey protien and have found it great. She doesn't know if you have cloggeg pipes to begin with that will drag on any weight loss. So unclog and give her products a fair chance. I used: Flush The Fat
People who post things such as this may need to consider getting off of their inactive lazy ass and stop downing a diet pill just because some people's system are obviously too weak to handle a simple diet pill. Everyone's body is different so there will be unnecessary law suits based on the usage of almost ANY pill. The combination of changing my eating habits and becoming more active daily with dietary supplements such as Jillian Michaels as proven in MANY weight loss programs including mine. These products are also NOT meant to be used for life..that's why they're labled "jump start kits". So lets not get all cranky because the weight loss plan didn't work for us, STOP wasting your time spreading negativity, and try something different..yes a Lifestyle Change.
What about her endorsement for the AB Circle? That thing fell apart on me and threw me off not too mention it is so unstable.
i did her 14 day cleanse and burn program bout a month ago, now ive stuck to her fat burn pills. i enjoy em. im not fat or lazy, i work out and eat right. im not saying these pills were the only thing that helped, but along with the diet and exercising the pills did help metabolism and my "potty" issues. Im a chick so im not too regular at going to the bathroom… but of course with the intake of the caffeine substance in her pills, that did help it as well. Ive lost lots of inches and 7 pounds since i started. figured id shine a little positive light on this matter. but dont get me wrong, i was never really one for "fat burn lose weight" pills either and DONT believe that pills are the only things that do it… along with diet and exercise, of course they will work.
For some it does, and some it doesnt.. not everything is for everybody in this world
okay, so many of yo uhave a problem with these pills and "loose" respect" for somebody that endorses them. But, hello studies have shown tha tthey do work, if taken properly….and "consult your physician" is on the damn things everywhere. Your family doctor is the person to talk to. If your family doc sais that your body can't take it, then don't riggin do it. Simple enough? Jillian is still and awesome trainer, she worked me harder than boot camp did just in one video. And yeah, sometimes you have to yell at people to get them motivated. That's part of the lifestyle change. Get over it and go do something people.
Jillian Michaels is endorsing this product and others….So are many other people, usually celebrities, such as the Kardashians and back in the day Chuck Norris….. "Ephedra is legal. It used to come in 25mg pills now it only comes in 8mg. The proper way to use it as a fat burner is 24mg of ephedrine, 200mg caffine and 325mg of ASA 2-3 times a day in 1 month cycles. And yes it works well!!!" this comes from a competitive bodybuilder….
Get inspired, get motivated, stop eating doritos in front of television……don't blame others for your flaws….If you are obese and willing to transform that part of your life YOU CAN DO IT….Nowadays, everything is about lawsuits….get rich quick schemes….no wonder the following stats read as follows:
USA Obesity Rates Reach Epidemic Proportions
58 Million Overweight; 40 Million Obese; 3 Million morbidly Obese
Eight out of 10 over 25's Overweight
78% of American's not meeting basic activity level recommendations
25% completely Sedentary
76% increase in Type II diabetes in adults 30-40 yrs old since 1990
This is a long a** comment but come on it just pisses me off. Jillian as well as Bob are actually making a difference with their field expertise what the hell are we doing….reading and commenting on this crap….WII game works, Jillian's training expertise works…..GET OVER IT AND START READING LABELS ON THESE PILLS AND OTHER SUPPLEMENTS…THEY ALL GET YOUR HEART RACY….
I think this lawsuit(s) is bul*****…."READ LABELS THEY TEND TO LOOK LIKE THIS AND READ AS FOLLOWS:
U.S. Federal Trade Commission Warning: This product contains ephedra extract. Taking more than the recommended serving may result in heart attack, stroke, seizure or death. Consult a physician or other licensed qualified health care professional before taking this dietary supplement if you have heart disease, thyroid disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, recurrent headaches, glaucoma, difficulty in urinating, prostrate enlargement, seizures or depression or other psychiatric condition, or a family history of any of these conditions.
Jillian's Fabulous! and if you choose her Metabolism CD/Book, you'll loose the weight plus get your figure back because you choose to eat the right foods(organic and healthy) instead of fatsos' ways of popping pills hoping they don't have to stop eating grease-filled donuts/hamburgers and store bought crap!!! GET SLIM AMERICA – Buy Jillian's book/cd and stop being such lazy-ass slugs…
There are actually quite a lot of particulars like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the ideas above as basic inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you deliver up the place an important thing might be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I'm certain that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Each girls and boys really feel the impression of only a second’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
I don't have a wii… But my brother does.
