Jillian Michaels Urges Fans to Stay Away From the Keto Diet

The keto diet was the biggest weight loss trend of 2017, and everywhere you turn, people are still talking about the high-fat, low-carb diet. But fitness expert Jillian Michaels says you shouldn’t buy into the hype.

In a recent interview with PeopleTV, Michaels shared her strong opinion that the keto diet isn’t for most people and called it a “diet fad.”

Because of this, keto works well for people who struggle with high insulin levels, especially those with polycystic ovary syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and infertility, but it’s not appropriate for most people, she said. “If you’re not eating a bunch of processed carbs and processed sugar and you’re not eating too much food in general, you won’t have insulin levels that are going through the roof,” she explained.
