Jillian Michaels is taking a leave of absence from the The Biggest Loser ranch and hitting the road to show overweight Americans how to lose that belly fat in her new upcoming reality spinoff, Losing It With Jillian.
Losing It With Jillian, an eight-episode series slated for premiere in 2010, features Jillian traveling the country, living with families for a whole week and thoroughly examining the choices they’ve fitness and nutritional choices they’ve made. In each episode, the no-nonsense trainer on NBC’s hit weight loss series will move into the family’s home and overhaul their lives with an full lifestyle makeover, Jillian, 35, tells The Hollywood Reporter.
“In a way, it’s a response to the comments we always get on Loser,” she explains. “We always hear, ‘It’s so easy to lose weight when you move into the camp and you’re living with trainers’ and ‘Would they really be able to lose the weight if there wasn’t money on the line?’”
