I just found out that Jillian Michaels, the famous personal trainer from the show “biggest loser” is being sued over her weight loss product called ‘calorie control.’ The plaintiffs in the case against her claim the product is a complete scam! It is such a shame to see a fellow trainer who is so well known and respected in the industry be caught up in such a scandal like this. I mean, I’m certain that she means well but, just like all those other famous stars that have endorsed these types of products, she got suckered into yet another “magic pill scam.” Frankly if she is really as good as they make her out to be then, I think she should have known better.
The law suit claims that “Michaels decided to exploit her fame and goodwill by collaborating with Thin Care and Basic Research to promote a weight-loss supplement that purportedly will cause weight loss by itself, without and additional effort on the part of the consumer.”
The law suit is asking for an injunction prohibiting further sale of the product as well as damages.
When Jillian was asked about the suit her lawyers came back with the following statement “Unfortunately, anyone can file a lawsuit in California. All it takes is a $355 filing fee. That research was reviewed by some of the leading weight-loss experts in the world before Jillian would put her name on the product. The lawsuit will be handled in the courts like all other lawsuits, and we are confident we will prevail.”
Well Jillian, I wish you luck on this one. Just goes to show what I’ve been saying all along. Supplements don’t work!
