‘Biggest Loser’ Trainer Jillian Michaels Sued

‘Biggest Loser’ trainer Jillian Michaels Sued Over Weight Loss Pills

BY Rosemary Black

A frustrated dieter from California is getting tough with “America’s Toughes Trainer.”Jillian Michaels, a star on NBC’s popular reality show, “The Biggest Loser,” is being sued by Christie Christensen, who claims she didn’t lose weight with the supplements endorsed by the celebrity trainer, according to the Associated Press.  Saying she was duped into buying the “Jillian Michaels Maximum Strength Calorie Control” product last month, the Lake Elsinore, California resident is seeking class-action status for the case, filed in Los Angeles.  The lawsuit specifies that the pills did not lessen Christensen’s appetite and that she didn’t shed any pounds as the product promised, the Associated Press says.  A photo of the toned and trim Michaels and her endorsement of the supplement appear on product’s package, billing her as “America’s Toughest Trainer.” It also includes the claim “Two Capsules Before Main Meals and You Lose Weight…That’s It!”  The lawsuit states: “Ms. Michaels knows better – taking two pills before eating does not miraculously cause weight loss.” Christensen, whose suit notes that she has “struggled” with her weight for her entire life and bought “Calorie Control” because of Michaels’ endorsement, also is suing Basic Research, the Utah-based firm that makes and markets diet and weight loss products that the celebrity trainer endorses.                     

  Wow…don’t even know what to say about this one.  In this instance, there are two “biggest losers”…Jillian, for pimping a product that offers weight loss by taking two capsules before meals…and Christie, for believing the hype.
