No matter what you think of Jennifer Aniston’s personal life or acting skills, it’s pretty safe to say that we can all agree on one thing: she looks pretty damned amazing. Ageless, even.
The 47-year-old can rock a bikini with the twenty-somethings, has hair many of us still secretly covet, has pretty much flawless skin, a pretty hot husband, and is still asked to do magazine covers. And she proved that last item to be true once again by being named People‘s Most Beautiful Woman this week.
So we had to wonder, how the heck does she freaking do it? Aside from spending an estimated $8,000 a month on her beauty regimen (think hair, body and face), she also reportedly sticks to a pretty strict diet. Having had a glance at it all, we’re not sure we could even begin to try and follow her routine.
In an interview with Elle Magazine, Aniston broke down her diet as follows. For breakfast, she wakes up to warm lemon water washed down by eggs and avocado (sprinkled with coconut oil) or oatmeal with an egg white whipped in at the end. Puffed millet cereal and banana is also an option, as is a shake. You know, to mix it up every now and then.
For lunch, Aniston revealed she prefers some kind of protein mixed with vegetable or salad, and that dinner is more or less the same. If she’s hungry in between, it’s all about apples and either nut butter or just good old fashioned nuts.
Okay, so maybe we could try that kind of diet, but we’re not sure we’d last more than a week or so before breaking out the bags of chips or murdering someone for a sandwich. Other than the cereal or oatmeal there’s basically zero grains in there, which makes us wonder how on earth she ever feels full? Is she secretly grumpy all the time? Does she have a nurse to pump her full of IV fluids when she feels faint?
Sure, sure, even the likes of Aniston have cheat days at least. She also stated in the interview that she used to go to town on Mexican food on her “days off” but that recently hubby Justin Theroux re-introduced pasta back into her life. Pasta Carbonara (with turkey bacon instead of the real thing) is one of their faves. We love them but kind of hate them all at once.
Maybe all that yoga and meditation is really to distract her rumbling tummy. Or perhaps after all this time she’s just realized how to “pay the price” for fame. Either way she looks fantastic.
Now excuse us while we go whip some egg whites into some oatmeal and practice meditating. We’ll probably catch you at the food truck tomorrow afternoon.
