Jillian Michaels Uses Katy Perry To Get Her Daughter To Eat Healthy

Fitness guru Jillian Michaels is proudly launching her new partnership with Curves.  The Biggest Loser trainer shared how important healthy eating and fitness are to her and her family. 

Jillian talked about ways she convinces daughter Lukensia to eat well.  “I explain to [my daughter] why we eat healthy [foods], and I incentivize them.  So for example, she loves Katy Perry, and I’ll say … ‘she roars better with kale! Katy Perry loves this!’ And so she’s like, ‘Mom, does Katy Perry like this?’ I’m like, ‘She hates pizza, honey.’”

When it comes to her own workouts, the celebrity mum fully admits that she loathes it.  She shared, “I really dislike working out. No matter what I’m doing, whether it’s yoga or spinning or even my Curves circuit class, I’m like, ‘Mother of God!’ It’s hard. And there’s never a moment where it’s hard and I’m going, ‘Oh, I just love this!’ Everything hurts."  She continued, "I tell myself that I love my skinny jeans. I love playing with my kids. And I don’t mean watching them play, I mean playing with them."

Jillian shares what we should keep in mind to stay motivated when we fall off the fitness wagon.  "If you get a flat tire, you don’t get out of the car and slash all three other tires.  You fix the flat and you keep going. So you missed [a workout] today. Control your diet a little bit better and go tomorrow. It’s that simple."
