Her Diet Routine:
The actress has admitted that she loves junk food. She loves pizza and despite that she has been able to maintain a killer physique.
If there is one person that deserves the credit for the shape and fitness she maintains, it would be her former trainer, Dalton Wong.
They got acquainted when she was playing the role of Mystique in The X Men. Her trainer shares some of her fitness secrets that helped her stay in shape. This he says, he got it done in 3 months!
She did weight training, yoga and running. But the most important piece of his workout routine would be the resistance bands. He says that he found only intervals of ten minutes while Jennifer was filming on the sets, still he squeezed in some moves with the resistance bands, which targeted the thighs and legs areas.
Here are some of the tips he shared:
- Break down the daily workout routine into smaller exercises throughout the day.
They would start the day with a jog outdoors which lasted between 20 and 30 minutes. It was just to keep her going. Sometimes she needed to let go and get moving since she was playing the role which would get her going.
- Allot at least 15 minutes for a workout
He made Jennifer workout in short spans of high intensity training circuits. He also says that people might not have a good one hour to work out, so he suggests that everyone sets apart some 15 minutes every day.
- Relaxing should be included as part of your exercise routine
He said that Jennifer’s training for the day would conclude with Yoga and ‘beditate-ing’ what he called as deep breathing involving the diaphragm, and stretches.
This would just be to increase the resilience and help the body relax so she would be ready for training the next day.
He also explained how exactly one should perform breathing exercises – “Inhale through the nose, make sure that the air fills the lower rib cage and the chest and throat passage. Exhale through the nose until a count of three and maintain the rhythm”.
- Use your body weight
Many of the exercises Wong had included in Jennifer’s training- variations of lunges, squats, planks and push-ups, mostly didn’t involve the use of any machines or dumbbells.
- Snack thoughtfully
Some snacks that Wong said wouldn’t hamper with the training are-
- Almond milk – Almond milk with a scoop of protein powder
- Hard-boiled eggs – Contains Choline, which improves the functioning of the brain
- Coconut milk yogurt – Dairy- free source of fiber
- Dark Chocolate – this doesn’t mess with your metabolism or sugar levels
- Crudites and hummus- Perfect combination of proteins and veggies
- Apple slices with walnut butter– Apple keeps you feeling full and Walnuts are rich in Omega 3s
Ever wondered what she would have done to get the body she has now? Read on to know what she suggests for a perfect fitness routine:
- Stay hydrated:
The cure for anything is water, so keeping your body hydrated is very important when it comes to being in shape, both physically and mentally. You have to keep sipping water in small portions throughout the day. According to recent studies, you could save yourself from overeating thereby cutting down on 200 calories by just sipping water.
- Eat small, controlled portions:
Jennifer loves eating Mac and cheese, pizza and fried chicken. Still, she doesn’t eat all of it at once. If you want to control your portions, you have to remember The Rule of Two.
If you’re hungry – Starter + Main course
If you want to lose weight – Starter + another starter
If you have a sweet tooth – Main + share a dessert
If you have a sweet tooth and you want to lose weight – Starter as main+ share a dessert.
- Get enough sleep:
Take a power nap if you don’t have enough time. The body needs rest to recharge.
- Enjoy the exercise:
Find out one thing that interests you, a sport, the gym or any other form of exercise which doesn’t feel like a task that you need to tick off your to-do list. Enjoy the exercise that you do.
- Eat Dark Chocolates:
She ate dark chocolate. Dark chocolate works wonders for people who have a sweet tooth and still want to lose weight.
- Work on your posture:
Mind your posture. The way you sit, stand or walk determines the amount of fat that accumulates in your body.

If you feel stressed out, take a walk, stretch out or meditate. Take deep breaths, involving the diaphragm and make sure that the air fills your lower rib cage.
