- Jillian Michaels, 44, had a lot of reaction to her criticism of the keto diet.
- Al Roker called the fitness trainer a bully.
- Andy Cohen, who had previously defined the "stupid" diet, said that Jillian is a "bad idea".
At the start of this week, Jillian Michaels, 44, slammed the keto diet into a video for Women & # 39; s Health.
"You're starving your cells," he said in the video. Instead, he urged them to use "common sense" when eating, avoiding processed sugars and grains, sticking to whole foods and eating lots of vegetables.
But now fans of the celebrities of the keto diet are shooting.
Al Roker, who said TODAY that has been on a diet since September, tweeted the previous coach Biggest Loser with some chosen words.
"So @JillianMIchaels, says #Keto is a bad idea," wrote Al. "This from a woman who promoted bullying, deprivation, manipulation and more weekly in the name of weight loss. wrong. "
The presenter TODAY continued to talk about his opinions on the air. "My point is, what works for you, works for you," he said. "There's science on both sides that says it's not a great idea and science says it's a great idea."
Andy Cohen is on agreement. Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen presenter, who had previously criticized the diet, commented on the comments of Kill Jillian and even has anointed her with the "Jackhole of the Day."
"Do not feel bad, keto diet," said the guest, of Jillian's criticism, but his disagreement with Jillian is a bit shocking, since Andy told Savannah Guthrie that the her choice to follow the diet was "stupid" … while she was a guest on her show.
It is important to note that Jillian does not believe that the diet is totally useless – she simply does not think it is sustainable (which is important for lasting weight loss results), according to her a post she wrote for her website in the month of April.
The sustainability of the keto diet (or lack thereof) is something that many registered dieticians are in agreement with.
Some research doctors even believe that the diet may have some distinct negative aspects, especially if done incorrectly (think: eating a lot of saturated fats compared to healthy unsaturated fats), which could increase cholesterol levels .
Equally important: "The diet will not support good bones, healthy brain, heart, colon or intestinal microbiome", Sonya Angelone, RD, spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, previously mentioned Women & # 39; s Health .
So who is right when it comes to the keto diet? Honestly, only time will tell.
