Jennifer Aniston’s Health Advice

Posted by on Dec 3, 2013 in Health, Skinny Tips & Quotes | 2 comments

I think that Jennifer Aniston looks amazing. No matter what her age is, she continues to show us that you can look great well into your 40’s and beyond – if you continue to live a healthy lifestyle. So what exactly does Jennifer Aniston do to look the way she does? It’s pretty simple, really. “I eat really well and I work out, but I also indulge when I want to. I don’t starve myself in an extremist way. My advice: just stop eating sh*t every day.” – Jennifer Aniston For me, this advice is completely realistic. No starvation. No extreme diets. You still get to indulge. Overall, you just eat more good foods than the bad ones. It’s all about moderation and finding what works for you.
