Jennifer Lopez Shares Swimsuit Photo in "Birthday Mood"

Here’s how she stays so fit.

Jennifer Lopez is celebrating her birthday in her bathing suit. In one of her latest social media posts the superstar kicks off her 54th trip around the sun. "Birthday mood…all month!! Always a good day when Lola comes to play… #OnTheJLo: Birthday Edition coming soon," she captioned the Instagram post. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Jennifer Lopez stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Eats "Whatever She Wants"

On the April 21 episode of "The Drew Barrymore Show," Ben Affleck gushed over his wife. "She's the most gorgeous woman in the world and she looks spectacular." He also revealed that she doesn't diet. "Let me tell you something that's going to upset you," he said. "Jennifer just eats whatever she wants and whatever she wants; cookies, ice cream, everything."


She Works Out


Affleck added that exercise contributes to her phenomenal figure. "She works out. I mean, I work out too, but I don't magically appear to be 20 years old you know what I mean? With perfect skin and the whole thing," he joked. "There's no taking away the work ethic. The work ethic is real, the discipline is very real, but also the superhuman thing is real. She's the most gorgeous woman in the world, she looks spectacular."


She "Knows Her Body"


Tracy Anderson, one of J.Lo's trainers, added to E! News, that she is self-aware. "If somebody could graduate summa cum laude of physical literacy, it's her. She knows her body so well and she knows what she needs for the many, many projects she does," she said. "This is something people need to understand, Jennifer is so driven from within and she's such a hard worker. I don't know anyone that has her worth ethic."


She Doesn't Over Train


"She is very soft and gentle with herself in a really beautiful way that you wouldn't expect. She knows her engine really well. She doesn't over-train if she's got to light up a stage, which is most of the time," added Anderson. 


She Sleeps

Lopez has also revamped her approach to rest. "There was a time in my life where I used to sleep 3 to 5 hours a night. I'd be on set all day and in the studio all night and doing junkets and filming videos on the weekends," she told People. "I was in my late 20s and I thought I was invincible." She ended up having a panic attack. "I asked the doctor if I was going crazy. He said, 'No, you're not crazy. You need sleep…get 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night, don't drink caffeine, and make sure you get your workouts in if you're going to do this much work.'"
