Jennifer Lopez Eats ‘Healthy Carbs’

The 54-year-old shared a few key things that she makes sure to incorporate into her diet: number one, of course, is water. According to Dodd Romero, one of Lopez’s personal trainers, “She drinks a minimum of seven glasses [of water] a day.” After that, lean proteins is the most important to her. This includes egg whites, white meat turkey, lean cuts of chicken, and grass-fed beef.

She also gets some protein from the healthy fats she makes sure to have every day: a handful of nuts, which are a great source of protein in addition to unsaturated fats. After that, leafy greens. While veggie aren’t everyone’s favorite part of a meal, JLo makes sure to have a ton of them. Her favorites? Kale, broccoli, and spinach. And the ones she stays away from? Carrots and corn—too sugary!

And finally, what we’ve all been wanting to know, JLo does in fact eat carbs. But only the healthy ones, which include sweet potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, and oatmeal, according to Romero. Sorry pasta lovers!

A Typical Day Of Eating For JLo

It’s easy to list out ingredients, but what does JLo actually eat in a day? How does she—or perhaps a personal chef—prepare all these whole foods? Here’s a breakdown:


According to People, JLo’s first meal of the day is usually a protein shake consisting of berries, Greek yogurt, cinnamon, honey, ice cubes, lemon juice, and a scoop of protein powder. Other days she’ll have oatmeal with fresh berries, but the one thing she always stays away from is coffee, unless it’s decaf. “I haven’t had caffeine in years,” the actress said.


For lunch, JLo will dress up a salad with lots of fun ingredients. A typical salad for the singer includes kale, toasted pumpkin seeds, crumbled queso, minced shallots, and a dressing made with lemon juice and olive oil. Another option is full of salmon, broccoli, peppers, zucchini and some form of a vinaigrette. If it’s not obvious, JLo tends to stay away from processed foods, always opting for an organic, whole food option.


As a mom, JLo loves to eat with her kids, and will usually sit down with them to have some combination of protein, veggies, and complex carbs. For example, grilled chicken with brussels sprouts and baked yams are one of her favorites Or, quinoa with pork or chicken. Protein is always her priority, in addition to whole foods.
