- Jillian Michaels, 44, received a ton of setbacks for her criticism of the ketodite.
- Al Roker called the fitness trainer a bullying.
- Andy Cohen, who previously called the diet "stupid," said Jillian is a "bad idea".
Earlier this week, Jillian Michaels, 44, beat the keto diet in a video for Women's Health.
"You starve your cells," she said in the video. Instead, she urged to use "common sense" when eating, avoiding processed sugars and grains, sticking to whole foods and eating a lot of vegetables.
But now celebrity fans of the ketodite hit back.
Al Roker, said on Today
- he has been on the diet since September, tweeted on the first Biggest Loser coach with some passwords.
"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. Now they sound like bad ideas."
DAY shows host talked about his keto views on the air. "My point is what works for you, works for you," he says. "There is science on both sides that says it's not a good idea and science that says it's a good idea."
Andy Cohen agrees. The Watch that happens live with Andy Cohen host, who previously merged the diet, chimed in on Jillian's keto comments. He even forged her "Today's Jackhole".
"Don't feel bad keto diet," said Jillian's criticism. However, his disagreement with Jillian comes a little shocked, as Andy told Savannah Guthrie that her dietary choices were "stupid" … while she was a guest at his show.
It is important to note that Jillian doesn't think the diet is completely useless – she just doesn't think it is sustainable (which is important for lasting weight loss results), according to her, a post she wrote for her personal website back in April.
The keto diet's durability (or lack thereof) is something that many dietitians registered on.
Some R.D.s also think that the diet may have some rather distinct disadvantages, especially if done incorrectly (be sure to eat very saturated fats against healthy unsaturated fats), which can increase your cholesterol levels.
Also important: "The diet will not support good bones, a healthy brain, heart, colon or gut microbiome," Sonya Angelone, RD, a spokeswoman for the Nutrition and Dietetics Academy, previously told Women's Health .
So who's right about the ketodite? Honestly, only time will tell.
