With Master Your Metabolism, Jillian Michaels showed us how to take control of the metabolic machinery underneath our weight and health struggles. Now she's ahead of the curve again -- conquering the mayhem, myths, and misunderstandings associated with aging. After all, if you can decide your weight, why not your age? Drawing on interviews with top geroscientists and doctors, and on cutting-edge research, Ms. Michaels addresses all six of what scientists and doctors have identified as the major age inciters -- metabolism, damaged macromolecules, epigenetics, inflammation, stress adaptation, and telomeres -- and gets them working for you instead of against you. Empowering and rigorously researched, you will walk away with vanguard strategies for cultivating mindfulness that restore and protect human performance, keeping you fit, healthy, and beautiful for life.
"Jillian was great! She was very personable, energetic and engaging. I was really impressed with her ability to take random questions from the audience and have very logical answers from which everyone could learn. We had really good feedback and a very successful event for our first year of the new fundraiser. We are so excited that Jillian was a part of it!"
"Meeting with Jillian Michaels was life changing, not just for me but for others. She really resonated with me in her philosophy that it's not moderation, but balance. Jillian was great being candid about the show and fitness and even bringing some people to tears with her straight-up, funny, and badass style."
