Michaels told Williams she didn’t have confidence in diet programs like keto or intermittent fasting

In her appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Michaels delved into her dislike for diet programs she views “extreme.” The fitness expert has actually talked aside in the past about diets like keto, Atkins, intermittent fasting, and also veganism, for example. 

So whenever Williams expected Michaels on her most readily useful methods for a healthier new-year, the instructor reacted, “Honestly, common sense. It’s become so controversial. I have literally gotten in trouble and been on the Google headlines for saying like, ‘Hey, keto, not so healthy. Hey, vegan, not so healthy.’ Like, both extremes. Or you know what, these cleanses. Not a great idea. Just eat less!” 

But Williams slashed in to fairly share that she had just a little fasting key of her very own. “I fast, like, twice a week,” she confessed.

“When you say fast, what do you mean by that, though?” Michaels pushed.

“Just water,” Williams responded.

“For two days?!” Michaels expected incredulously.

“Not in a row. Are you out of your mind?” Williams expected.

“Are you?” Michaels quipped straight back.

The two ladies bantered a little in regards to the price (or otherwise not) of fasting 

Williams clarified that she performedn’t precisely consume zero nutritional elements on the fasting times. “Water and a green juice and a power juice in the morning, that’s it,” she explained. “But then the other days I eat what I want.”

But Michaels trapped to her normal nourishment and physical fitness mantra: It’s all about moderation and regular, routine control. “But see, I’d rather you not be like, ‘I eat what I want.’ I’d rather you just keep it kinda balanced all week,” she informed Williams.

Williams wasn’t purchasing it. She remained stone-faced and jokingly reacted just: “No.” 

Michaels also made questionable feedback about fat positivity

Echoing her opinions about Lizzo on BuzzFeed’s AM to DM, Michaels additionally expressed her problems about the body-positive and fat-positive motions on The Wendy Williams Show

“So I was reading the article,” Williams expected Michaels about her current address story in Women’s Health Magazine, “and inside you were talking about people not…well, you were talking about people celebrating being obese.” 

“I just find that our world is so polarized, and like, you know, there was so much fat shaming for such a long time, that now the pendulum has swung to a place where it’s like, ‘You are 250 pounds and you’re ownin’ it, and I’m like, no, no, no,” Michaels explained.

She proceeded, “When you start to celebrate that, it’s not about shaming, it’s not about excluding anyone, but we also don’t wanna cosign cancer, heart disease, diabetes. This is a no. So we don’t exclude anyone, we don’t judge anyone, but we also don’t celebrate.”

Michaels stated she could individually connect due to her very own record with meals. “And I say this because I was an overweight kid,” she informed Williams. “I used food as a coping mechanism…I understand it.”
