Do you long for killer abs, toned legs and firm thighs? You're not the only one! Achieving a perfectly toned bod involves making healthy lifestyle choices, beginning with the food you're eating and ending with the amount and type of exercise you perform.

If you're tired of trying diets that don't work and strenuous workouts that don't deliver the promised results, then it's time to go for Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred workout, as well as for the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred Diet.

Who Is Jillian Michaels?

You might have heard by now of the America's most famous personal trainer. Jillian Michaels has been involved in numerous projects so far, the most notable being "The Biggest Loser" and "Losing It With Jillian". As a personal trainer, Jillian Michaels released workout DVDs and health and wellness books.

One of her most famous workout DVDs is Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, released in 2008, that quickly became a hit on Amazon.

Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred Results

Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred is a tough workout that promises - and delivers - results in only a month. It has three levels and, if you keep up the good work, you are meant to reach the third after the first 30 days.

Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred involves strength and cardio training, as well as abs, divided into 6-minute sets of exercises. Overall, a Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred workout session lasts for about 25 minutes.

And its results are spectacular, mostly because these exercises help you build muscle and, therefore, reshape your entire body. Weight loss is one of the "side effects", but it shouldn't be your goal - especially if you're not following the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred diet.

Still, if you're not aiming just to tone your bod, and would very much like to lose some generous weight while performing the 30 Day Shred, then you may combine your workout with a suitable diet.

You may go for the Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 diet plan that involves eating healthy, varied foods that add up to around 1600 calories a day. Here are some examples of meals suggested by Jillian Michaels.

For breakfast, eat a bagel with cream cheese. At lunch, feast on a chicken salad with avocado and mango. If you get hungry before dinner, snack on sunflower seeds and watermelon. End your day with a healthy dinner consisting of Mahi Mahi tacos.
