Known as the merciless fitness drill sergeant on NBC’s The Biggest Loser, Jillian Michaels actually has her sights set on far more than opening up a can of whoopass on contestants who aren’t willing to go through the pain for the gain. Determined to become an Oprah-style life coach for individuals who are sincere about creating their own happiness with dedication and hard work, the 36-year-old buff beauty is all about pitching the notion of a healthy, whole body lifestyle.

In keeping with that theme, she has authored a new book “Master Your Metabolism: The 3 Diet Secrets to Naturally Balancing Your Hormones for a Hot and Healthy Body!” which focuses on dispensing advice that will help everyone convert their bodies into lean, mean metabolism boosting machines. Interestingly, while she herself is an admitted sustainable pescatarian, her book includes one full chapter dedicated to vegetarian main dishes, which goes to show you that you can carve out a better body by eschewing meat while also helping the planet in the process. Take one glance at her co-trainer, Bob Harper and it’s easy to see that riding the veggie/vegan life does a body good.

Setting her sights on an “ultimate wellness” career path, Michaels intends to make the most of the gap that Oprah’s departure from the daytime television zone in 2011 will create, fully expecting that by that time, she’ll be hosting her own empowering show. Feeling that our society is craving a one-stop-shop for health and well-being, the ab-tastic trainer is focusing on the mind-body-diet connection in all of her present and future endeavors. In a television landscape teeming with junky couch potato shows that do nothing more than turn our minds into goo, it will be nice to look forward to something that will help viewers to achieve their personal best.
