Not only is Jennifer Lopez practically aging backwards, (a’la Benjamin Button), but she also has one of the most toned bodies in Hollywood.
At 48, she looks better than stars that are half her age, which is why when JLo offers up any secrets behind her fitness or diet we’re the first to take notice–well, JLo fans have a reason to rejoice, because the star offered up a detailed account of everything she eats in a day. Want to emulate JLo’s diet?
Here’s your chance: but before you dive right in, it’s crucial to remember the cardinal rule behind her bod: “I don’t deprive myself,” the star tells People magazine. “I’ve learned the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.”
In order to ensure she stays on track, the triple-threat makes sure she’s always armed with healthy options when hunger strikes. “I always have healthy snacks like fruit and vegetables with me,” she adds.
So, what does JLo eat? She relies on balanced meals, healthy snacks, and a little sweet treat to get her through the day.
