Jillian Michaels known for her hardcore fitness tactics on the Biggest Loser, is getting in touch with her softer side now that she is a mom. After a long adoption process she brought home her daughter from Haiti and in the same week her partner, Heidi Rhoades, gave birth to their son.

Speaking of Biggest Loser Moms, we are loving these tips from The Mommy Diet by Alison Sweeney. She suggests using plain Greek yogurt in dishes instead of butter or cream. It still gives the dish lots of flavor, but without the calories!

  1. Use plain yogurt instead of cream in creamy pasta dishes. You will save up to 300 calories per portion.
  2. Use plain yogurt instead of cream and butter in mashed potatoes and on a baked potato. You will save up to 350 calories.
  3. Use plain yogurt instead of mayonnaise in dips and cold sauces. It will save you 340 calories!
