Jennifer Lopez is smoking-hot in the December 2015 issue of Marie Claire, where she showcased her gym-toned body following her 10-pound vegan diet weight loss.
Lopez, who raised eyebrows after spotlighting her sexy curves in the music video “Booty” (from her hit album A.K.A.), said she doesn’t think the video was too raunchy.
“I wanted it to be beautiful and sexy, not sexy and raunchy,” Lopez told Marie Claire Nov. 5. “Sometimes when you’re younger, you go for raunch, or shock value, but I don’t need to do that.”
The mom of two has built a massive career on her smoldering sexiness, but never took the sleazy route the way some celebrities (like Kim Kardashian) have.
“I did sexy things, but I was always more the ‘good girl’ who was falling in love as opposed to the ‘naughty girl’ who was running around,” said Lopez.
Jennifer, who’s set to begin her two-year Las Vegas residency on Jan. 20, 2016, said she’s so thrilled to start that chapter of her career and life.
“I’ve been preparing my whole life for this moment.” said Lopez. “I’ve done a lot of awards shows and performances and private shows my whole career. But never have I been able to create the defining show for myself and for my music. So I’m super-excited about it.”
Jennifer has been training for the grueling performance schedule with rigorous workouts and a mostly vegan diet.
At 46, Lopez is fitter than ever after her 10-pound weight loss on a vegan diet, Examiner reported. For exercise, Jennifer does rigorous fat-burning Tracy Anderson workouts.
“Jennifer does the Tracy Anderson Method, which includes muscular structure work and between nine and 13 different exercises that change every 10 days,” said Anderson.
Anderson’s workouts with JLo typically combine high-intensity cardio dance exercise with light strength-training using body weight and high repetitions done with tiny hand weights (three pounds maximum).
Tracy, who also trains Gwyneth Paltrow, revealed her weight loss secrets in her bestselling book, Tracy Anderson’s 30-Day Method.
Lopez is no longer 100 percent vegan, but sticks to a mostly vegan diet because it has motivated her to eat more vegetables.
Jennifer’s foray into veganism was inspired by the 22-day vegan diet challenge Beyonce undertook in December 2013.
The 22-day vegan cleanse was designed by Beyonce’s trainer, exercise physiologist Marco Borges, creator of the 22 Days vegan protein bars, which Beyonce and Jennifer are huge fans of. Borges also is Lopez’s nutritionist.
While low-carb diets such as the Paleo, Atkins and ketogenic plans are all the rage these days, Marco Borges said a higher-carb vegan diet is better for weight loss and overall health. Marco advocates a vegan diet that eliminates dairy and all animal products.
Borges, who shares his vegan diet and weight loss tips in his bestselling book, The 22-Day Revolution, said his vegan meal plan helped Beyonce lose 65 pounds several months after she gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy in 2012.
The 5-foot-7 Beyonce, who once weighed 195 pounds, lost 65 pounds using Marcos’ vegan diet plan, and said it can do the same for you.
Beyonce has since maintained her weight loss and recently made jaws drop after flaunting her unbelievable body in a nude Givenchy gown at the 2015 Met Gala (see photos above).
According to Borges, CEO of 22 Day Nutrition protein bars, following a vegan or vegetarian diet will promote natural weight loss and dramatically improve your energy levels.
“With most diets, you see weight loss and then as soon as the program ends the weight slowly starts to add back up again,” said Borges. “With ‘The 22-Day Revolution, you’ll experience weight loss, improved sleep, clear skin, increased energy, improved sex drive and more.”
