Celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels is the ultimate motivator. She helped numerous people get healthy on The Biggest Loser, and now she offers customized workouts and meal plans on her new app My Fitness by Jillian Michaels. Knowing that she's a source of inspiration for so many people out there, we spoke with Jillian about some of her daily habits.

Working out is a crucial part of Jillian's day-to-day, but she puts just as much emphasis on eating clean, whole foods that help her feel her best and stay slim. These are the five foods she eats on a daily basis:

  • Organic Greek yogurt
  • Fruits
  • Lucky Jack organic cold brew coffee
  • Wild salmon
  • Salads with dark leafy greens

"Fat is stored energy and calories are units of energy," Jillian told POPSUGAR. "Eat too many calories and you store them as fat. To lose fat, you must burn stored calories. Therefore, eating [healthy] and training for calorie burn — HIIT intervals, weight lifting, circuit training — are the keys to losing fat."

No matter what your diet is, you can mimic Jillian's philosophy — eat as many whole foods as possible, and steer clear of packaged goods, sugar, and anything fried. Keep that up with your training, and you'll see weight-loss results!
