What food does J.Lo eat?
Besides being physically active, maintaining a healthy diet is essential to keeping a sexy and fit physique.
According to IWM Buzz, Lopez takes a shake and smoothie for breakfast. If she’ll ever take coffee, she has switched her caffeine to decaf. She also makes sure she’s hydrated.
For lunch, the Hustlers star opts to eat vegetable salad and salmon. She tries to avoid processed food and only go for organic ones.
Her protein source comes from egg whites, turkey meat, chicken breast, fish, and nuts. Whenever she craves, these are the food she eats.
Aside from nuts, Lopez eats fruits and veggies for snacks. Healthy snacks can also help to keep her away from junk cravings.
As much as possible, the fashion designer eats dinner early, around 6:30 p.m., with her kids. She usually takes a small portion of protein with added carbs and vegetables.
Although she’s on a diet, eating some dessert is of utmost importance. Sweets are her guilty pleasure.
Jennifer Lopez loves chocolate chip ice cream and chocolate chip cookies, but she has to take it in moderation.
