Jennifer Aniston seems to be one of those few celebs whose looks we are constantly coveting. Whether it's due to some magical moisturizer or crazy expensive plastic surgery, the woman looks amazing for 44. And somehow, she looks even more amazing than usual in the promo shots for her new movie We're the Millers, in which she -- ooh, controversial! risque! -- plays a stripper. But at least now she's owning up to the fact that it wasn't a piece of cake getting into super-svelte, toned shape for the sexy part ...
Back in May, the buzz was that she relied on yoga to tone up. But diet was an integral part of Jen's prep, too. Access Hollywood asked if she even ate the day they shot one of her nudiest scenes -- eye roll -- and Jen confessed ...
I did eat that day. I was on a very like, you know, greens and vegetables and lean proteins and kale. ... When I really wanted to have a cheat day. I had to have a kale chip.
Oh dear. Crazy Hollywood! I'm all about focusing on greens and lean proteins, etc., but the most successful regimens usually allow a smidge of "cheating." AKA eating less than uber-nutritious, perfectly clean, whole foods. The 80/20 rule -- or even if you wanna go to slightly stricter and try for 90/10 -- is definitely more doable and sustainable than being so strict that you're calling kale chips a treat! (Hey, I've got nothin' against them. They're delicious, but they're not a "cheat.")
More from The Stir: Trendy Juice Cleanse Diets Are More Dangerous Than You Think
I recently ate super-clean and 95 percent sugar-free (I'd go for stevia or fruit) in the lead-up to my wedding day ... which, granted, not the same as playing a stripper, but I wanted to look as awesome as I could! And even then, a piece of dark chocolate or spoonful of sweetened almond butter here or there was a necessary "evil."
Then again, this Jen Aniston "diet" is even further proof that women shouldn't be trying to follow in celebs' wacky, extreme footsteps.
What do you think of Jen's "stripper diet"? Do you agree the 80/20 rule is the better way to go for the long-run?
