Jennifer Aniston stays slim by following a focused weight loss program. The “Love Happens” actress is a “friend” of the Zone diet, which she has followed for years. In a nutshell (and you can enjoy measured amounts of almonds on the Zone diet, by the way!), the Zone diet is similar to a low-carb diet plan.
Jennifer’s diet choice, however, is somewhat different than the most famous low-carb diet plan, which is the Atkins diet. The Zone diet uses different proportions of carbs, fats, and protein: 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein and 30% fats. Each day, Jennifer follows the Zone diet by enjoying two snacks and three meals, with each divided among the 40-30-30 ratios. Lots of water is essential.
Forget all those myths about eating all the steak, bacon, and butter you desire on low-carb diets! The Zone diet focuses on low-fat protein, healthy fats known as monosaturated fats (for example, olive oil), and fruits and veggies are the preferred carb sources. You don’t have to eliminate rice and bread: just think of them as “condiments,” like mustard, rather than the focal point of your meals.
