Jennifer Aniston is sharing the secrets of her fabulous figure. And it’s a combination of a clean diet and yoga. The good news for those who want to follow her lead? When it comes to diet, Jennifer explains that it doesn’t have to be complicated, notes E! News.
While some celebrities claim they eat foods such as cheeseburgers, Aniston is the opposite, sharing that she doesn’t even allow herself cheat days.
“My diet’s good all year round. I don’t do a big reset,” reveals Jennifer.
Instead, Aniston focuses on keeping it simple. That includes eliminating sugar as much as possible and going organic. Add in water and don’t skimp on sleep, she advises.
“It’s pretty clear: eat as much organic fruits and veggies as you can, keep sugar [intake] low, drink tons and tons of water, and get good sleep.”
Jennifer’s fans don’t have to worry about shelling out big bucks for expensive diet food. Aniston sticks with the basics, and advises having figure-friendly foods available in the refrigerator. On hand in her fridge: Tupperware bowls brimming with hard-boiled eggs, raw veggies that are already cut-up, chicken and lettuce. As for exotic foods such as caviar?
Among her favorite diet foods are “skinny-style” turkey bacon pasta carbonara and vegetable lasagna.
“You have zucchini, eggplant that acts as a paste, and you layer it with different cheeses and put it in the oven,” explained Aniston. “That’s an easy group meal, and easy viewing party food.”
One challenge for many dieters is the tendency to skip breakfast. But Aniston has developed three ways to enjoy that morning meal, reported People.
Jennifer is fond of whipping up smoothies with all sorts of ingredients.
“Bananas, cherries, a protein powder of some sort, almonds, cacao powder, and all sorts of other weird antioxidant stuff I can’t remember—with almond milk,” she reveals of her concoctions.
The actress is also a fan of eggs over easy with avocado toast topped with olive oil. Her third option is oatmeal with a protein boost from whipping egg whites into the mixture at the end of cooking.
Jennifer has a trainer, and they do a combination of spin and yoga. To avoid boredom, the actress switches up her cardio workouts, ranging from running on the treadmill to pedaling on the bike to moving quickly on the elliptical.
“I have a trainer, a wonderful woman who I do this spin-yoga class [with.] We spin for half an hour, and then do yoga for 40 minutes. That’s pretty intense,” admits Aniston.
“Then I go to a gym, where I do strength training or just my own thing on the treadmill, the bike, or the elliptical, just to change things up. Keeping your body confused is always the key for me.”
While many idolize Jennifer for her acting chops and sleek physique, Aniston herself lists actress Julia Roberts among her idols, and she couldn’t stop herself from feeling intimidated while the two were shooting the new film, Mother’s Day, according to Us Weekly.
“Because it’s Julia Roberts! My gosh, I mean, it’s a different thing when, you know, you get to sort of work with them and then you’re doing what you both do together,” exclaimed Aniston. “You know what I mean?”
In addition, Jennifer confessed that she felt so intimidated, she had problems when she played her first scene with Julia.
“I even flubbed in the first, I believe, take,” admitted Aniston. “[I] called her ‘Julia’ instead of [her character’s name].”
Since Aniston tied the knot with Justin Theroux in a secret wedding ceremony in California in August 2015, she has been away from the big screen. Mother’s Day marks a milestone as the first movie on which Jennifer has worked since getting married.
Fans of Jennifer and Julia will have to wait until April 29 to see the romantic comedy Mother’s Day debut in theaters.
