What Jennifer Lopez Does To Make 47 Look 27
The two things she never drinks are so surprising.
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. Here’s the nitty gritty.
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.

She snacks smartly.
Let’s talk about Lopez’s schedule: She’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.

Chocolate chips are her weakness.
When Lopez 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.
She doesn’t stick to just one type of exercise.
If you’re more Jenny from the block than JLo, you might not be able to afford two personal trainers like the superstar can. When she’s in Los Angeles, Lopez works out with Tracy Anderson, who’s famous for sculpting the bodies of Gwyneth Paltrow and chef Katie Lee. And in New York, Lopez sees David Kirsch. She loves the fact that they have two completely different approaches — and that’s a trick you can pick up even if you’re working out solo, in your living room. Kirsch is a fan of planks, push-ups, and boxing, while Anderson says, “we just freestyle.” That means lots of small arm weights plus butt and thigh moves that also work her abs.
