'Biggest Loser's' Jillian Michaels in Big Trouble — Her Diet Pills Don't Work, Accuses Suit!

Have YOU tried Jillian Michaels’ diet supplement before? Did they make you slim or are those stubborn pounds still packed on to your bod?

HollyNo-Shocker of the day — taking pills alone won’t make you lose weight! Um, duh.
However simplistic this may sound, one irate customer is suing the pants off of Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels because her dietary supplement – Jillian Michaels’ Maximum Strength Calorie Control – didn’t help her lose any weight.

“Telling people you take two magic pills and then eat chocolate cake all day is a deception,” the customers’ lawyer said.

The woman wants Jillian’s product — whose slogan reads “two capsules before main meals and you lose weight…that’s it” — off the shelves…AND $5 million for her struggles, naturally.

“Sadly, Michaels has 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 any additional effort on the part of the consumer,” the lawsuit claims.

Jillian, 35, is known for her strict diet AND fitness regiments on NBC’s weight loss reality show The Biggest Loser, so we’ve always thought it was weird she’d back diet pills without emphasizing healthy eating and work outs.

But who’s in the wrong here? The dumbass woman who thought she could get away with a miracle pill, or Jillian, for not being straight up about what her supplements could do?
