Have you ever found that recent hot hashtags on social media platforms have been controlled by the Bennifer wedding news? Like any woman in the world, Jennifer Lopez is both ordinary and special. She is ordinary because she is no different from other women carrying multiple identities like a mother of 2 while she is special because she is well-known as a singer, an actress, and even an entrepreneur. That’s not everyone can make them all in one go. Moreover, J.Lo’s amazing shape and skin condition shock the whole world. No one likes to be another J.Lo, but if what’s she doing to keep fit and healthy is able to encourage others, that’ll be valuable.
“As long as healthy, I embrace who I am.“

For you who are carefully reading this article, however, you need to change yourself if you have an excessive weight that’s compromising your health, or your doctor has been constantly talking with you about the concern about your health condition.
If not, this article is just created to get you inspired and move on with a better diet or lifestyle.
Health and Shape Lessons from Jennifer Lopez
J.Lo’s perfect shape and body health are closely related to her healthy diet and lifestyle.
Lesson#1. Stay active.
Following Jennifer Lopez on Instagram, you’ll easily see how active J.Lo keeps every day. Workouts are daily activities and she refuses to miss out on any scheduled workout. Two workout trainers have been employed by her as a professional guide. No matter at a gym or at home, J.Lo keeps active and energetic and all kinds of workout tools and equipment can be seen from her home.
Moreover, dancing rehearsals and pole dancing are her favorite activities and what they must do for her job as a singer and an actress. No doubt, J.Lo loves dancing so much that whenever her confidence is lagging, she dances.
Lesson#2. Healthy diet.
J.Lo’s diet can be regarded as a bible for those who’d like to lose weight and keep fit through a healthy diet. For example, the singer never drinks alcohol, coffee, or smokes because all of them are harmful to body health and skin. She also stays hydrated all the time and drinks more than she should every day. When it comes to the detailed diet of J.Lo, the section below will tell you in detail.
Lesson#3. Intermittent fasting.
J.Lo is also a fan and practitioner of intermittent fasting, 5:2 specifically. By the way, her current husband, Ben Affleck also swears intermittent fasting as he goes to when filming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, for the muscular role of Batman. Therefore, the Bennifer equals an intermittent fasting couple.
Intermittent fasting has been extremely popular among celebrities nowadays and many of them have declared the advantages of intermittent fasting in public.
Lesson#4. Stay away from sunburns.
Although Jennifer Lopez has the perfect skin color envied by the majority, she doesn’t like sunbathing because she’s aware of the harm of ultraviolet rays to skin, leading to premature aging. She once said, “I am a firm believer in SPF. I try not to stay out in the sun too long.”
Lesson#5. Get enough sleep.
At at-least 8-hour sleep has been Jennifer Lopez’s long-term habit, which also contributes to what she looks like now (perhaps playing a leading role). Enough sleep also helps J.Lo get up early for morning workouts and workouts keep her fit. You’ll see the cause and effect.
