Trainer Jillian Michaels might wanna break out the big guns because a dietary product she backs is coming under fire.

The ‘Biggest Loser‘ star is being sued for false advertising: her Maximum Strength Calorie Control dietary supplement is at the center of a class-action lawsuit.

Melissa Harnett, the lawyer spearheading the suit, calls the supplement “worthless,” and alleges in the lawsuit that Michaels “has decided to exploit her fame and goodwill by collaborating with Thin Care and Basic Research to promote a weight loss supplement that purportedly will cause weight loss by itself, without any additional effort on the part of the consumer.”

“Telling people you take two magic pills and then eat chocolate cake all day is a deception,” Harnett told TMZ.

She is asking for an injunction prohibiting the sale of the product as well as damages.

Michaels owns several diet control supplements, including 14 Day Cleanse & Burn and the EXTREME Maximum Strength Fat Burner.™

Reps for Michaels or ‘The Biggest Loser’ have not commented on this story.
