The Fantastic Four actress has admitted that her approach to exercise has changed over time.

She used to think she had to be so hard on herself to achieve her fitness goals. However, after the pandemic, Jessica changed that approach.

When the shutdown of gyms disrupted her routine, she discovered she didn't have to go all out. Jessica now works out two to four times a week.

"I always thought, I need to sweat out my weight in water, I need to have muscle failure, I need to feel like I just ran a marathon—that's how hard I needed to work out," she told Women's Health.

Jessica Consumes Plant-Based Food

The Hollywood actress makes a weekly effort to limit her consumption of animal products and alcoholic beverages.

"Four days a week, I try to eat plant-based, and I don't drink alcohol," the actress revealed.

She told Byrdie that protein shakes with almond butter, banana, and coconut water are on her regular menu.

Alongside coconut water, she also drinks coffee and tea. She said, "I think staying hydrated is really important. Just making sure you do stay hydrated for glowing skin and high energy. It's important for overall health."

It is inspiring that Jessica has a moderate workout routine that her admirers can easily adopt. That's enough motivation to go on and get the abs!
