If you’re looking at this page, you’re obviously curious as to what the Jennifer Aniston diet is all about. And who can blame you? She’s absolutely gorgeous, and let me tell you from experience that you can’t get that body by working out alone. The Aniston diet has helped to perfect her physique and kept her lean throughout the years. So what is the Jennifer Aniston diet and how can you mimic it to produce the same results?
First of all, let me say that I do this kind of research as a full-time job. I have researched and created hundreds of web pages dedicated to celebrity nutrition and fitness and have firsthand experience as a personal trainer and a personal weight loss success story of 60 pounds. Whereas I will detail the Aniston diet in a bit, let me share what all celebrity (and non-celebrity) diets have in common:
1.) They are all some form of caloric restriction. It may be in a really fancy pants package with food combining and timing, etc. but every single diet and every single scientific study on weight loss boils down to one thing: eating less calories than you burn.
2.) Almost every celebrity I have researched follows a high protein/low carbohydrate diet, and Jennifer Anistons diet is no exception to this. The “magic” to this formula is that high quality protein (free range, organic, and grassfed) has a higher thermal effect than do carbohydrates or fats. Which means your body produces more calories to break it down. This means faster weight loss.
Knowing this, what is the diet Jennifer Aniston subscribes to? She is famous for following the Zone Diet, which is…you guessed it…a low carb/low calorie meal plan. It is based on proper food combining with every meal consisting of 40% protein, 30% fat, and 30% carbs. Ideally your carbs are coming from fruits and veggies, your fat is coming from healthy fats and oils, and your protein is coming from lean sources.
The main component of the Jennifer Aniston diet is your protein requirement. To find how much protein you need to lose weight, click here.
So, divide that amount up by how many meals you want to eat per day, fill up the rest of your plate with non-starchy vegetables and fruit, sprinkle with 1/2 serving of fat, and that is The Zone Diet in a nutshell.
