Jennifer Lopez always looks fit but after her twins were born a few years ago, she confesses to a few stubborn pounds that would not go away. She opened up about her 22-day Vegan diet and losing those last 10 pounds from her pregnancy. “You got to work out, you got to watch what you eat. It’s a job – you’ve got to buckle down. I’ll be honest with you guys, since I had the babies about six years ago, I had that really stubborn 8 to 10 pounds on me. People are used to seeing me be kind of thickish, but when I started eating [vegan], right away I dropped like 8 to 10 pounds. It was a real change, but more than that I felt better and people were like, ‘Your energy’s better’ … everything’s better.”

She added, “I feel great mentally and physically! I feel better when I’m in shape and taking care of myself. I did full vegan for almost four, five weeks, then I just started incorporating proteins for myself. The truth is, even if you’re 70-80 percent vegan, it’s so much better having those vegetables, greens, plant-based stuff. It’s going to change your life and health.”
