Jennifer Lopez reveals everything she eats in a single day to maintain her amazing body
JLo has a sick body. And in other news, the sky is blue. But it’s still easy to feel blown away when the singer posts a photo flaunting just how jacked she really is. You could spend hours on Jennifer Lopez's Instagram. Her abs (and legs, and butt, and arms…) have the power to suck you in and make you wonder: how the hell can this woman keep looking better, year after year? The answer: a whole lot of hard work and a pretty strict diet.
The latest evidence: A new Instagram she shared to celebrate her 49th birthday. “Current birthday situation…yup,” she captioned a shot of herself, her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez, and a few other pals clutching bottles of bubbly on the beach.
Jennifer Lopez turned 49-freaking-years old, and she’s got a serious washboard situation going on. J.Lo is well-aware that her stomach looks good, too, because she shared a photo on Instagram right before that of herself at the gym in skintight pants and an abs-baring sports bra. At this point you're probably just waiting to read what she eats, I will tell you but let's just look at one more pic.
Delicious. Anyways here's the nitty gritty. For one, her meals never include processed food. On top of that, almost everything Lopez eats is organic. A typical lunch might include salmon and a salad that's packed with veggies. Broccoli, peppers, and zucchini drizzled with vinaigrette is a fave, as is kale with crumbled queso and toasted pumpkin seeds.
Come dinnertime, she'll switch up the protein - "I like pork and chicken, especially Puerto Rican style!" she told UsWeekly - and enjoy it with quinoa or baked yams. Nothing boring about that right. I could eat this at least four times a week. Plus you may not be buying these from the exact same store as J.Lo but these items are readily available.
When she's not eating, Lopez's got a regular show at Planet Hollywood in Vegas, she stars in NBC's police drama Shades of Blue, and she's a judge on the new dance competition show World of Dance. All this to say, girlfriend is always on the go. It can be really easy to reach for a bag of Cheez-Its, but Lopez knows better. "I always have healthy snacks, like fruits and vegetables, with me," she revealed to People.
When Lopez finally does indulge, it's not with black bean brownies trying to masquerade as the real deal. The singer's new boo, Alex Rodriguez. revealed on The View that her guilty pleasures are chocolate chip ice cream and chocolate chip cookies.
We all have our vices - avocados, chocolate, unicorn anything and everything — but Lopez doesn't indulge in any of the usuals. "I don't drink or smoke or have caffeine," she told UsWeekly.
On the rare occasion that she does indulge in coffee, it's always decaf. Keeping her complexion clear is also a big reason JLo cites for skipping caffeine and alcohol: "That really wrecks your skin as you get older."
Nothing out of the ordinary here, just hard work and listening to your body. Go JLo! See you in 30 years when you finally look 29.
