Editor’s Note: Jennifer Aniston’s diet recently caused quite a stir (across the Internet and right here on our site) after the actress revealed what she eats every week in an interview with Elle. After reporting on it, we received some feedback from readers who pointed out the legitimate nutrition factor in Jen’s healthy-but-admittedly-chocolate-cake-free meal plan. One thoughtful reader wrote in to say: The irony of all of this is that Jennifer Aniston’s diet should be the MODEL diet — eating as many vegetables as possible, getting enough protein and limiting “indulgences” such as highly processed, sugar-packed junk with no nutritive value. We hear you, Brit + Co readers, and we wanted to revisit the topic — read more here.
According to a conversation with Elle, Jen skips the donuts and muffins at breakfast and instead enjoys (?) “warm lemon water and then I have a shake or avocado and eggs, which is one of my favorites.” Okay, not so great, but not so bad. “I sprinkle a little coconut oil on that. Sometimes, I’ll have a puffed millet cereal with a banana or I’ll do oatmeal with an egg white whipped in at the end.” Whoa, don’t go nutso now!
For lunch, it’s all about (or only about) “some form of vegetables or salad with protein — pretty basic”. Basic indeed. And if you thought dinner was when she gets wild, think again. Her final meal is “probably the same” as lunch. Can’t… handle… the…culinary… craziness!
So perhaps snacks are the daily indulgence? Well, if you consider “an apple and almond butter” as super exciting eats, then well, yeah, that’s just sad.
Weekends are, thankfully, when she finally gives in, letting herself enjoy “a really good pasta” after years of letting herself “go all out” on Mexican food. You go all out, girl! ALL OUT!
Forget that Hollywood bod, bring us some burgers!
