‘While we are younger, most of us are always working out to get smaller arms, a toned butt and a flat stomach. But there is no such thing as doing it too hard and it is best to let it be. Just do it a little soft.’
The down-to-earth diva does not let her name and fame get to her and makes sure to follow a healthy diet and fitness regime that are easy for anyone. She took to her Living Proof Instagram page to share her latest diet and exercise routine.
According to Jennifer Aniston’s personal trainer Kathy Kaehler, having five meals a day could help one stay slim and healthy. She revealed that Aniston tries to have at least three to five meals daily. Kathy said –
‘I don’t believe in calorie counting. Jen eats at least three times a day, or ideally five small but nutritious meals.

The gorgeous actress starts her day with warm water and lemon usually. She, then follows her routine of having a cup of coffee and feeding her dogs. Her breakfast mostly consists of a shake, eggs, avocado and coconut oil on Ezekiel whole wheat toast. She also have sliced tomatoes with avocado on a toast, sometimes. After her breakfast, she hits the gym.
Water Is Her Best Friend

Her personal trainer advises everyone who wants to eat healthy the whole week to buy all the food at once. By buying the required food for the entire week at once, unwanted snacks or packaged ready meals can be avoided during the weekdays.
The actress keeps fresh eggs which she picks from her own chicken coop. Even, if she has the craving for cookies, she would not start eating a whole pack but would take one cookie and savor it.
According to her trainer, the actress follows moderation in everything that she does. Even when Jennifer Aniston goes out with a friend, she would have one glass of wine and enjoy every sip rather than having two bottles and feeling guilty later.
For dinner, the young actress prefers keeping it light and usually have some boiled vegetables and eggs with a glass of wine.

‘Jen knows that looking young comes from a holistic approach to life and taking care of your mind, body and soul. If you’re stressed, you’ll look tired.’
