  • When do weight loss plateaus typically occur? like after 4 weeks of dieting? Even if there is not a set time, around when have you seen plateaus occur?

  • What kind of food should we eat for those days off to meet that higher calorie, just the same healthy food as we normally eat during our diet/exercise prior to the plateau or do we need cheat meals with unhealthy food to fool our body. Not sure what to do anymore. I work my ass off, feel a lot stronger but can’t loose the fat anymore!!

  • I believe that it is SO important for people to realise that we have different body types, different body structures and genetics.

  • Thank you for your great videos! I love your advice and it is truly making a difference in my fitness/nutrition. Keep it up you are amazing!

  • i’ve been going to the gym for around 4-5 years. i’m 27, 164 lbs pretty low body fat.
    i want to have even lower body fat, but the calories i have to be eating seem too low.
    i’m not losing any weight on 1600 kcal/day, while doing heavy strength training 6 times a week + 3 or 4 30 min cardio sessions.
    What’s wrong?

  • I’m trying to maintain my weight now. April I was 150 pounds, Now June, I’m 134. I’m 5’4, i been doing intermittent fast for almost 3 weeks. Working out 5 times a week. now I’m in refeed mode, but trying to do it properly.

  • Did you hear about *Next Level Diet*? These guys deserve a medal. Their customized training and diet plan helped me change my life. I can’t thank them enough

  • Early for once! I’ve been eating healthily and counting calories for 2 weeks now, finally in the right mindset! I’ve lost 2cm off my waist and 1.5cm off my hips. Your videos definitely help for inspiration and motivation!

    My reason is because I’ve gained so much weight over the last few years I just don’t like what I see in photos or in the mirror anymore. I want to feel fit and sexy again and build my self confidence!!!!

  • Thank youI’m sending this to someone special in my life who thinks keeping her calories under a number allows her to eat super unhealthy processed foods which are “dietetic” so ok to eat!

  • Love your content! I binge watched all your videos! Haha. Good information. I want to start omad because I hate thinking about food all day so I figured I can make one good healthy meal a day and spend more time doing other stuff.

  • I feel like I’ve been stuck on a plateau for quite some time now. I have been eating around 1200-1400 cal for a while (jumping from dietician to dietician). I workout out a lot and still see nothing. I want to start increasing my calories but I just do not know how to do it properly. I am taking about 1 week of rest (no exercise). I am kind of scared to gain some fat if I increase my calories, but I feel like this is the only way I’ll break my plateau.

  • NextLevelDiet really took my diet to the next level. Not only diet, but life. I can see improvements in many aspects of my life. Guys, you rock! #*Next Level Diet*

  • Thanks Carlo, you talk such a lot of sense. I’m trying OMAD at the moment but just need to make sure I’m getting in those whole foods.

  • I have been saying that for years just based on my own experience and had no idea it was scientifically proven, I just knew it worked.
    This woman has reshaped my body and I love her for that. I have been exercising for almost 30 years; I am thin and fit but she really toned me up and made me stronger.
    ❤�� Love you Jillian!

  • I’m studying nutrition in college right now and plan to become a registered dietician. do you have any tips for a dietetic internship? i’m thinking about doing a master’s degree/ internship combo. do you think it would be worth it to get my master’s or just start with the internship and go from there?

  • if you wanna actually burn fat. take your advice from a doctor instead of a sodastream spokesperson. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j91eC2z9Om4&t=1930s

  • Just visit website Next Level Diet and get personalized Diet and Training plan with amazing tips. I lost 15kg in two months. Finally, I have a six pack.

  • Your videos are so freaking informative, and they are so pleasantly direct. You’re not being a jerk about it but you just state in a mater of fact way that this is the truth and this is how you lose weight/get healthy. I thoroughly enjoy your videos.

  • New subscriber here! Im almost finished watching all your vids and its really informative. I just started my weight loss journey last week and following what you said. Hoping for good results. I started eating clean,exercise a bit and its sooooo hard for the first 3days but im slowly adjusting. Love listening to these videos. Continue your passion! Love lots from Philippines ��������

  • You cant just deficit forever… You have to get your tdee back up a bit. Like there was this chick eating 1200 calories. Shes not dieting for competetion i had her redo a recomp and now shes loosing at 1800 calories.. More cardio more protein..

    I see too many ladys not geting there protein in!

  • i hear different amount of proteins in a cut from different reputable sources, but all tend to be somewhat close to the same estimation. More importantly, i have been hearing to consume 1g/1lb of Dry lean mass, but not bodyweight. Logically speaking, wether you choose BW or DLM, you will get good results, but which one is more optimal and why? Anyone, please comment and point me to some studies or info on the matter, that would be much appreciated!

  • OMG!!!!!!!!!!! Yessssss…. I am losing weight through a serious lifestyle shift exercising and eating well without counting calories AT ALL! This has always been my philosophy. I am eating more now than I was at my heaviest AND I am losing weight. I am handling stress a lot better, enjoying life, and I’ve never been this happy. Just to illustrate what I mean: I went from obese class 1 to overweight WITHOUT COUNTING CALORIES and life is so good.

    Definitely subscribed sis! Thank you! I love nutritionist with sound, beautiful, life-changing advice

  • Every time I have some workout/healthy eating question, I go on my home page and there’s Jillian with a new video! Thanks for the awesome insight! ❤️

  • Just visit website NextLevelDiet and get personalized Diet and Training plan with amazing tips. I lost 15kg in two months. Finally, I have a six pack.

  • Did you hear about *Next Level Diet*? These guys deserve a medal. Their customized training and diet plan helped me change my life. I can’t thank them enough

  • Hi! I have a question. Can i still eat 1 bread in the morning before exercise? Magbuburn parin ba ng fats even though i eat bread?

  • What if one wants to gain muscle AND lose fat simultaneously?
    Would it be correct to follow the gain-muscle calculations + increase a lot the weight training / HIIT volume/frequency?

  • I’m sorry but if meta data says there is no benefit in having more than 1.8g/kg (no matter how hard you work out, your body just doesn’t use it) so why 2.3 and more?

  • This is asking for a lot but could you do a review on the Prepd Lunchbox? I’ve been wanting it but the only reviews are low quality and short

  • Jillian always tells it like it is. People don’t like to hear the truth which is why she gets some hate but people who can recognize the value she provides us backed up by SCIENCE, those people will make positive changes in their lives. Thank you Jillian.

  • Hi Autumn! So glad I have discovered your channel! I have lost about 55 pounds this year but I KNOW I have eaten to little and my metabolism is probably messed up….how can I try to reverse that without gaining weight? I am slowly but surely eating more clean food but Im petrified of gaining!! Must mention that I’m 56 years old so my hormones counts against me!

  • Hi, Adam. You and Stefanie are right, I have to stay motivated and drink plenty of water. I can’t wait to see you make my broccoli soup. What do you love about butternut squash?
