Jennifer Aniston Does These Things to Look So Good

The rumors are true: The 52-year-old is one of the healthiest stars in Hollywood.

Jennifer Aniston is no stranger to shutting down rumors. However, there is one piece of buzz that has been surrounding the Morning Show star for several decades that is undeniable: she is a serious health and fitness nut. Over the years, the now-52-year-old has never shied away from revealing all of her health, wellness, and fitness secrets—from everything she eats to how much and how often she exercises. Here are some of the things she does to look and feel her very best, and the photos that prove they work.


She Maintains a Healthy Diet

Consistency is key when it comes to Aniston's approach to diet. "I don't let eating habits get out of control where I need a reset button," she revealed to Yahoo Food. "My general philosophy is to eat healthy. It's pretty clear: eat as much organic fruits and veggies as you can, keep sugar [intake] low, drink tons and tons of water, and get good sleep." One of her diet tricks? Eating the same thing almost every day. For example, Courteney Cox once revealed that she and her BFF ate the same exact "Jennifer salad" every day for a decade—a modified Cobb, with garbanzo beans added, and turkey bacon instead of regular bacon.


She Makes Hydration a Priority


Aniston once revealed that she drinks a whopping 100 ounces of water (Smartwater, of course) per day. "But occasionally I just have to have a Diet Coke—there's nothing like it!"


She Infuses Her Coffee with Collagen


In a recent Instagram video, Aniston showed off her favorite morning beverage: a jolt of java infused with Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. Aniston loves the line so much, she is their Chief Creative Officer.  "I've always been an advocate for finding wellness from the inside out – and I'm so happy to share the importance of collagen," she revealed.

Similar to her modified Cobb, Aniston swaps unhealthier ingredients with healthier options. Take her beverage of choice for example, a margarita. "It's basically silver tequila with lime juice shaken and over rocks," she told InStyle. "And some people like a little Cointreau, some don't. It's a cleaner margarita. No sugar, no mixes, no agave. I don't like sweet drinks."


She Mixes Up Her Workouts


"Variety is key" when it comes to Aniston's workouts. "Mixing it up is always fun because that way you know you're excited, and it's muscle confusion. It keeps your body awake," she told Women's Health. Her favorite workouts include cycling, yoga, barre method, Body by Simone and more recently, boxing. "It's the longest workout I've actually stayed with consistently other than yoga," she told InStyle. "There's something about the mental aspect of boxing — the drills, your brain has to work, you're not just sitting on a bike. It's amazing." Additionally, she explains that it is "a great way to get aggression out."


She Works Out Almost Every Day

Aniston once revealed to InStyle that she works out five out of seven days a week.  "I work out almost every day, at least five or six days a week," she told the magazine.
