Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez will celebrate her 51st birthday this year, but she has a body of a 20-year-old. However, her incredible physique is a result of healthy habits and a lot of exercise.
Chef Kelvin Fernandez, who worked for J.Lo and her fiancé Alex Rodriguez for two years, stated that the singer’s diet is strictly controlled, especially when she is preparing for some important and big events.
Kelvin, 33, cooked for Jennifer a month before she made a memorable performance at this year’s Super Bowl.
“The cool thing about it was is, that woman, when she has a goal, she has a goal. It’s time to say, ‘Kelvin, here’s the diet plan. Here are the things that I want to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner,” he said in an interview with Us Weekly.
This strict meal schedule before the Super Bowl also meant a temporary reduction in carbohydrate and sugar intake.
“It was one of those things where she was eating almost the same thing every single day. There were simple carbs and complex carbs and different types of carbs that we had to implicate into the breakfast, lunch, and dinner structure”, he revealed.
Given her commitment to diet, it’s no wonder she doesn’t tolerate surprises, even if they are well-intentioned.
“If I mess up once, I will hear it, and she deserves to put me on my point,” Fernandez added. “One time I tried to be nice, and I’m like, ‘Alright the woman’s worked hard. She deserves it. Let me do dinner family-style. The next day she’s like, ‘Kelvin, you served me rice.’ And I’m like, ‘No, no, no, no, no, there was chicken, there was salad. You grabbed the rice!”, Kelvin recalled.

Fernandez added that he could always joke with her on the subject, but this minor incident changed the way he prepared food for their family, so he decided to serve everyone a plate of food separately.
“Alright, Jennifer. I’m going to serve you every single plate individually. Do not look at anyone else’s plate. Do not look at what anyone else has. She’s such a hard worker. When she puts her mind to something, it’s incredible how much can be accomplished. When she wants something healthy, she’ll stick to it”, the young chef revealed.

In this time, when it’s so easy to get down and think of all the things going wrong and what we don’t have and don’t know the answers to… I make it a habit to say three things I’m grateful for as soon as I open my eyes and then at night when I’m lying in bed I list three good things out loud that happened that day. Could be anything… and I try to change them so they are not the same everyday. Stay positive and stay safe. 🙏🏽 Love you and miss you all… together we will soon be ❤️
