Jennifer praises her personal chefs Jewels and Jill Elmore, even writing the introduction in their book called The Family Chef . The actress admits that before meeting the chefs she lived on a diet of “prepackaged Zone meals, overcooked takeout and… the occasional piece of cheese.”

JENNIFER ANISTON ON HEALTH & FITNESS:
“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 s*** every day.”
“It’s easy to get addicted to the euphoric feeling of having a good sweat after a run. It wakes up your body.”
“You know what, there are days I go ‘I can’t’ and ‘I don’t want to,’ and I think you just have to listen to your body. So sometimes you just don’t work out.”
“I take 8lb weights with me whenever I’m staying in a hotel … It’s always good to do arm exercises when you’re watching television or talking on the phone. I also love to stretch before I go to bed, and usually throw in a couple of sit-ups.”
“I’m not into boot camp, I don’t need to do all of this—I just want to stay fit! (Laughs) I don’t want to get yelled at—at all. Please stop yelling at me.”
