Jennifer Lopez’s #clean diet
She looks just as good now, if not, somehow even better, than she did when she first earned her J-Lo nickname and dated P-Diddy (you forgot about that, didn’t you!) and we often wonder, how, at 46, this is possible.
One word: discipline. Lopez is seriously disciplined. Her trainer, Tracy Anderson, who is also responsible for Gwyneth Paltrow’s bod, says it’s her clean, unprocessed diet.
“It’s all organic and it’s all very well thought out, with the balance of very high quality proteins and a lot of nutrient-dense food,” Anderson recently told US People magazine.
Breakfast is a protein shake, her own brand naturally (she launched a line with Body Lab last year)
“I do it with quinoa milk or water,” she says. And she only ever drinks decaf coffee. “I haven’t had caffeine in years.”
“By lunchtime, I’m starving,” she says. Lunch is a salad with mixed veggies and fresh salmon. Dinner is some kind of protein with quinoa and more veggies. “It feels like rice and beans, which I grew up with. And I like pork and chicken — especially Puerto Rican style!”
But that face, how she maintain the face?
“I’m rarely in the sun, but if I am, I wear a lot of sunscreen,” she tells US magazine, “I’ve never been one to take a lot of sun, which is why my skin has maintained itself. And I don’t drink or smoke or have caffeine. That really wrecks your skin as you get older.”
She also mixes up her workouts, exercising with David Kirsch in New York and Tracy Anderson in LA – always in the morning.

“I don’t like doing it later; it’s harder to get there when I have my day going already. I work out three or four times a week. When I’m in New York, I work out with David Kirsch — he’s an amazing trainer. When I’m in L.A., I work with Tracy Anderson. I like the balance that they both give me. They have two totally different approaches. I like switching it up with my body.”
With David, she does “planks, pushups, boxing. A bit of everything.” While Tracy says: “We just freestyle.” They do 3-pound (1.36 kg) arm weights with “butt and thigh moves that incorporate the core. We want to keep those famous curves.”
